Play for 20 minutes and sleep for 20 minutes. That's how life goes for puppies like this 13-week-old Irish Setter pup Theo.
As we walked East, Theo was alert and enjoying some bench time with his puppy sitter. He had an assortment of toys and was interested in everything going on around him.
On our westward walk home, Theo was sound asleep on the bench and never twitched a muscle when Penny took this photo. That's life with a wee dog – 20 minutes of non-stop play and then 20 minutes of deep sleep.
We're looking forward to watching Theo grow. Next time we meet, he should have all his puppy shots and we'll be able to let him and Poppy move in for a close up sniff.
See you soon little bit!
