Bilbo, our faithful and loving crazy muck magnet

The 26th August was National Dog Day, which inspired me to write a post about our fabulous pooch Bill (aka Bilbo) We brought Bill home from a local rescue centre in January 2014, when he was around 8 months old. All we knew about him was that he was rescued…

Favourite things from August
