This time last year.

This time last year...... Jake and Freya.
Freya's first day at Soggibottom Cottage.

Jake and Freya Rose Blossom beside the banks of the river Dart two weeks ago.How can a year have passed so quickly ?
Forgive our absence, over the last two weeks. We have been out and about nearly every day.

There have been lots of beach walks.

Tent sharing.

Castle visiting at Totnes. Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a short lead.

The shop at the bottom of the castle is dog friendly which is a bonus.

The shop also sells great ice cream.

Freya didn't go all the way up to the top of the castle but she never let Jake out of her sight if she could help it..

There are benches all around the castle grounds, Freya sat on one as it gave her a slight height advantage to keep an eye on Jake.

We have been to a fun fair.

Cliff walks in Cornwall.

Loads of digging.

Even the sun shone.

Two great weeks of fun.

Jake went home this morning, we have one very sad little dog who keeps looking out of the cottage window for him to return.
Never mind Freya, it's the village Fete tomorrow and your also in the blog Olympics on Catflap Cavalier. Entered in "Digging" obviously.

What wonderful memories. I love the photos showing how both boy and dog have grown in one short year. (I didn't see photos of how you aged in one short year?? Ha!)

Seriously, cute grandson there and it looks like you all had a grand time.

So good to catch up with you - sorry for being away so long! Freya has grown!
Looks like the summer is in full swing in Cornwall and everyone's having lots of fun!
Best wishes

What a change in both Freya and Jake from a year ago. You certainly know how to give a young boy a happy two weeks.

Sue said...

It looks as if they both had a wonderful time. I'll bet you're a wee bit tired.

We'll be rooting for Freya in the digging event. Good luck little girl.

That is such sweet photo of Jake and Freya. I wish I was with you and walking along those beaches. Too hot to go out this weekend.

Our dog Disco does the same things for his little boy. And hello - the Olympics are doing great there in England. And thanks for following me.

Love, sandie

Had to laugh at Freya with her head in a hole. Precious times with boy and dog. I'm sure Jake misses Freya just as much.

They all grow so fast!

Oh I know that sad little doggy will be looking for Jake for awhile- until next time

Lovely to see how they've both grown in the space of a year. That last photo needs framing, it's gorgeous!

Looks like you've had a wonderful 2 weeks of being out and about. What a difference a year makes- Freya has her cavvy ears. :-) Awww

The years do go by incredibly quickly. You can see how much Jake and Freya love each other :)

I think everything composed made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
what if you added a little content? I am not suggesting your information is not good,
but what if you added a post title that makes people want
more? I mean "This time last year." is kinda vanilla. You should
look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about everything've written.
In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
