Our recently-married friends Marie-Emmanuelle and Patrick stopped by for a visit today, along with their three-month-old German Shepherd pup and one of their two Nova Scotia Duck-tolling Retrievers...
Their dogs (they have another Duck Toller and a Border Collie) are always a pleasure to have around as they are friendly and very well-trained and well-adjusted!
But best of all, today we were honoured when Marie-Emmanuelle and Patrick asked us to be godparents to their son, due at the end of December. Marie-Emmanuelle kicked back and let us feel the baby kicking!
And a good time was had by all! We were invited to lay hands on the tummy. I would never walk up to a pregnant woman and start groping without an invitation! :) It took Gordon a long time to feel the kicking but he was pretty pleased when he finally did!
We also enjoyed meeting Jack, their new GSD. What a lovely dog!
And full of beans, like any puppy!
He's gonna be huge!
Sharing a drink!
The noble Duck Toller, allowed nowhere near our ducks! :)) More duckling photos tomorrow.
We are so happy and honoured that Marie-Emmanuelle and Patrick want us to be involved in their son's life in this way. It's especially nice for us since we are two only children without our own children, and we'll never have nieces or nephews.
