Arrived at our house sitting and met Juno the dog

The morning started off cloudy and overcast, and a little cool. But by lunchtime the sunshine arrived and it became another beautiful day here in Ireland.

We drove about twenty minutes to arrive at our house sit out in the countryside. We're only about 30 kms (18 miles) north of the center of Dublin as the crow flies, and yet we're totally out in the country.

We met Mairead and Joe and Juno the dog. And had no problem getting along with everybody. Such welcoming people. And Juno is so friendly, and quite happy to accept lots of loving from new friends.

It's a big house, and they brought up their four kids here. The property is a 300 acre dairy farm. So we've got lots of places to go walking. Unfortunately, Juno won't be able to join us because she had an operation a couple of weeks ago and is still not allowed to go out chasing rabbits or anything. 

Max's parking spot for the next few days.

Our backyard!

Juno and Ruth getting acquainted.

Juno is a vizsla breed. She's about two years old.

Their four children were arriving throughout the day from various locations. The reason we are here to look after Juno is because they are all headed to a family wedding near Limerick. Monday is a holiday here in Ireland, so they won't be back until Tuesday afternoon or evening. We'll probably stay here Tuesday night and then head out ourselves on Wednesday.

Mairead made a wonderful roast beef dinner.


And we sat around the campfire in the evening.

Oisin is the oldest.

He played us a tune on his bouzouki, it's a type of Irish mandolin.

I took a video for you... the sound isn't that good, so turn your volume up all the way...

It's yet another beautiful day. The family is all here and they are headed off to Limerick around lunchtime, then we're on our own with Juno. No, we are not responsible for the dairy herd, so we don't have to get up at 5am to milk the cows!

Stayed up around the fire until 1am... might have to have a nap this afternoon!


And in Canada...
