John and Oscar sat out enjoying the sunshine this morning. Who is following who around, we wonder? Is John keeping an eye on Oscar, or has Oscar already become John and Margaret’s shadow?

And then the builders arrived, here to make the garden wall much higher so that John and Margaret will know Oscar is always safe when he’s out playing.

Oscar quickly made firm friends of Pepe and his team, who thought he was ‘muy guapo.’
