Our Thursday photo #92

This week instead of a weekly update, I’ve got a story to tell. As usual, my dangerous dog plays a starring role. It all started as soon as I stepped out of the door to take the dogs for a walk. My husband had taken the girls to playgroup and true to form, he’d forgotten to take a spare nappy for Lia, who promptly crapped herself. He sent me a text asking me to drop off a spare.
