Laurel has a sock party

We were lucky enough to visit Laurel again recently … she is a sock loving and rather beautiful fox terrier and belongs to some very dear friend of ours.

Laurel just loves socks so much, she snuffles them around and hides them in all sort of nooks and crannies of her home and then brings them out again when she feels the time is right.

When we last visited her she had been feeling a little under the weather so we decided to throw her a sock party!

Well, we can confirm she was absolutely thrilled and didn’t know quite what to do with herself in sock heaven…

Here are some fabulous photos of all the happiness and socktastic fun Laurel had!
