Long before my husband and I even thought about having kids (or even getting married for that matter!) we went out and got ourselves a dog. Saxon is now pushing 11 years of age (which is super impressive for a King Charles Cavelier!) and spends most of his days finding quiet spots in our backyard to hide from the boys.
He has it pretty good with us, and has only escaped from the yard three times, the latest being a couple of weeks ago when the side gate was open. Thankfully one of our lovely neighbours spotted him and gave us a call before he was able to get to far. As a way of saying thanks, I decided to bake these Chocolate Chip and Raisin Biscuits for their afternoon tea.
The only problem with this plan was that our three year old thought these biscuits were pretty good and wasn’t too keen on sharing – we really need to work on his sharing skills….
