I had to take my son to buy some shoes. He goes through a pair of sneakers every two months. He only really has the one pair of shoes and this is how long they last.
Am I alone in this? I just buy him cheap shoes because I’ve bought more expensive sneakers and they don’t seem to last any longer than the cheap ones.
They usually fall apart at the seams, or he wears holes in the bottom. It’s annoying.
After I bought him a new pair of shoes he got the tattoo pictured above. I couldn’t convince him not to get a snake and it’s kind of fitting as he was born in the Chinese year of the snake.

I love looking at how dogs interact when off the lead. My dog (14 years old) still goes up to sniff other dogs but isn’t that interested in playing. I swear she thinks she’s human. She’ll have a sniff of a dog and then wander off.
If a dog wants to get too playful she’ll either ignore them or give them a growl to let them know she’s not interested.
The two dogs pictured above (The Surfer’s pup on the left, and a dog he met on the right) are both quite young and they just played with each other. The pup will run up to all dogs to say hallo and see if they want to play. He’s got so much energy, it’s tiring to watch.
It’s good to see him have fun at the beach off the lead and learn to interact with other dogs though. It’s very rare that another dog will be annoyed with him but that’s the beauty of dogs, they let you know. He’s been lucky not to have been in any fights yet.
