Celebrating Clive's 9th Birthday ....















Clive was 9 years old yesterday!

Murray and Clive had a great day and Murray made him a very special birthday cake!

Clive didn't get to eat all of it in one go mind you, but he certainly enjoyed what he did eat!

We can't believe Clive is 9 years old!

All ready for Easter .....







After a very busy week - the boys had lots of things to organise this week - Clive went made sure he was all ready for the Easter holidays.  Murray finished school today for the Easter holidays so the boys have two weeks of holiday ahead of them!

Huge thanks to Liz at Positive Dog Training for ensuring that Clive looks so fluffy and gorgeous for Easter.  Murray was thrilled when we collected Clive earlier this afternoon.

The boys have a busy Easter ahead of them and they can't wait to spend more time together and relax after a very busy few weeks.

Have a great weekend ....

When Monica met Murray & Clive .....




Yesterday morning we got a message on Clive's facebook page from a friend in the UK who has been following Clive's blog and facebook for a long time.  Monica mentioned that she would love to meet the boys if that was possible and as Monica was only staying a few miles down the road from us we met up with her this morning.

The boys took Monica to Dun Laoghaire for a few photos and Clive had a great time running around while Murray told Monica all about his great dog.

We spent a lovely few hours with Monica this morning and we very much hope that we get to meet Monica and her family again.  Murray loved the fact that Monica has a doodle too and a young son who loves his doodle just as much as Murray!

It's wonderful the friends that you meet through blogging and facebook!

Clive & Murray on the Mooney Show ......


The boys were finally able to share their news yesterday - they were interviewed last week for the RTE Radio 1 Show - The Mooney Show which was broadcast yesterday!

Their interview was part of an hour long special on Autism celebrating World Autism Awareness Day.

Murray could hardly wait to hear himself on radio ....

Everyone was listening out for the boys.  Murray had told his friends in school, his teacher and SNA, and all his family, friends and neighbours.  Grandad in his nursing home was taken out of his bed and brought to the day room so he could listen to Murray on the radio there.  His cousin Aoise studying in Spain was listening in on her computer, her cousin Soline in France doing the same! Dad was sitting in his office trying not to cry as he heard his 'young man' Murray and Clive on the radio!

The boys didn't disappoint either - Murray was really great and we are so proud of him.  It was the first time he has been interviewed and he was so good at talking about Clive and his blog and his all his blogging friends around the world!

If you click here The Mooney Show - you should be able to listen to the boys.  Murray starts talking at 25 minutes in on the segment on World Autism Day!  A huge thank you to Katriona McFadden from The Mooney Show who came out to the house to interview the boys.  She spent a long time getting Murray comfortable and chatting to him before she began recording and it really paid off.  She got on so well with Murray that he wants to invite her back to the house for 'dinner'!

Murray has been amazed listening to himself and he was particularly happy that Clive's barking was recorded too!  He has been playing the pod cast back over and over to hear Clive's bark!

The boys were so good that Mom had promised them a treat last night so they got pizza and Coke even though it was a weekday-night!!


Thank you so much to the Mooney Show for highlighting the boy's blog, their great frog photos and also for highlighting the great relationship that the boys have.  It was wonderful to have the boys interviewed on radio this week as Tuesday was World Autism Awareness Day.

The boys celebrate Mother's Day ....

Today was Mother's Day here in Ireland and the boys had a lovely day with Mom and all the family

After lunch though the boys made sure Mom got a very special Mother's Day kiss ....

Mom was very happy with her special kiss and then the boys got Mom to go on the trampoline with them!  Everyone in the house loves trampolining ....


Dad and Sorcha had lots of photos taken too but they said 'no way' to them being uploaded!  But as it was Mother's Day and Murray loved the photos so much - we put together some of him and Mom & Clive!

If you were celebrating Mother's Day today - we hope you had a very special day too!


Here's to a great week!  We have some really exciting news to share this coming week but we have to wait another day or two!!

The boys can't wait to share 'their news' .....
