Birthday celebrations at London Zoo.

Hubby and I trotted off to London Zoo to celebrate his birthday doing what we like best, animal watching. It is the main reason I developed a friendship with him in that he had a couple of whippets and we would go dog walking together, he with Pippa and Suki and I with my families big black golden retriever, border collie cross called Luke.  In all the time we have been together I don’t think we have ever had a night without a furry heart beat for company, well apart from my first year in London on my own, which I eventually rectified.

We do love the Zoo, especially the penguins. They always seem so happy and in fine fettle.Zoo birthday May 2016 2 (1 of 1) Zoo birthday May 2016 3 (1 of 1) Zoo birthday May 2016 1 (1 of 1) Zoo birthday May 2016 4 (1 of 1)How could you not fall in love with these happy little fellows.
