Big Brother!

I come from a family of giants. With the exception of my Mum (Catherine) we 3 girls teeter totter close to 6 ft tall and the boys are 6'4'' and 6'5''. Dad was a big man!

It would seem only fitting then, that when my younger brother Kenneth decided to get himself a dog, he ended up with a giant! Say hello to Willis - the newest member of our ever growing family. Kenneth and his Fiancee Sineád decided a few months ago that they were ready to get their training wheels on for this pending married life (September 2009) and got themselves a dog!

Not any old Dog though, they signed up to take on one of the rejects from the Irish Association for the Blind - Guide Dogs. Willis was rejected because he was just too big, and too strong.

Kenneth and Sineád were out of town this past weekend for a Valentines getaway and we had Willis for the weekend. He is exceptionally well trained, very docile, unbelievable with the children - uber gentle and wonder of all wonders - he is a food dog! We had lots and lots of fun with him and Pearl took to him like a duck to water!

That is all the WiseWords I have for today,
