Mid July visit to Elan Valley with Morgan and her son, Maico, where we met up with Maico's brother, Rufus, and his humans Gemma and Michael. 
So lovely to see Rufus again; the boys and their mum were a real joy and thoroughly enjoyed the cool water and each others company

Happy 1st Birthday to Maico and his siblings
A litter reunion was arranged here at Lignum for their 1st birthday. 
Fun, lots of play, running and even everbody getting very damp during various storms didn't spoil our fun. 
It was so lovely to see you all again.
