Merry Christmas All

Hi Everyone,
Things are different this weekend. Music is playing, pretty lights twinkle on the fireplace and above the kitchen cupboard.  There is lots of food around and comings and goings of friends (AND I have managed to be quite good and chilled about it all so far).
Having dutifully sat for a photo-shoot yesterday, after my coat was brushed to a shine and most of the mud removed from my feet, I thought I would share the results with you.
This was the best of the first set of pictures. Is the tree small, or just far away? (A Father Ted joke for you there!)
This was the chosen photo for my Christmas 2013 album.  I hope you like it.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Lashings of turkey and big snuffles of pastry crumbs (my favourite treat).
Lots of love xxxx

It's a wrap!

All this different stuff going on!
Paper all over the floor, different toys, chocolates - don't kid me, I know!
Why Can't I play with them for a bit first?

It's only my second Christmas, that I can remember and I want to experience everything - including the wrapping!
I think mum was a bit fed up of me stealing labels and walking across and sitting on the pretty paper at first, but she saw the funny side eventually - I think!

Here I am trying to advise NOT wrapping the sweeties but giving them to me instead! Hee, hee!

Missing dad

It has been a strange week. Dad went to work on Tuesday morning and hasn't come home yet.

I did spot he had an extra bag, but he normally comes back after one sleep. It's been three.

Mum says he has gone to 'Abroad' and will be back tonight.  I hope so, as I quite miss my fuss by the sofa in the evening from him.  Mum doesn't do it quite the same.

To be fair, mum has done her best to keep me cheery.  We've had nice walks together and I have had lots of calming belly rubs and plenty of extra fuss. A cheezy kong slurped on my cosy dog bed always cheers me up a bit too!
Looking forward to a family weekend xx

Lovin it!


Just a quickie coz mum's a bit mad.
Remember my 'Swap-shop' toys?

Well, I got chased out of the house this week and banished to the garden, for sneaking in with one of them and making sludgy brown stains on the stair carpet - allegedly!

Whoops - in the bad books again.

I'm still here!

Hi All,
I expect you have been wondering where I have been and what I have been doing?

Thing is, mum has to help me with my blogging and she seems to have been busy..... so what have I been doing?

Well, in September I was enjoying running around with lots of sticks in the garden while mum and dad were cutting back and tidying up my garden.

In October I went on holiday to my Gran's house in Cornwall and had lots of walks by the sea!

I had a lovely time, but overstayed my welcome as I shouted and jumped up at Gran. I have a lot of work to do to try and behave better and mum and dad are working hard with me using a technique called BAT. I hope I can be a better dog soon.

Then, in November, I started going back to my dog classes a little more regularly and so far have really enjoyed them.  I have also been enjoying my tennis balls.

Then, early December, well last weekend actually, a really strange thing happened.  Two of my toys disappeared and two different ones replaced them!

Dad has been going around all weekend singing the 'Swap Shop' theme.  He reckons the foxes have been playing in the garden again and got bored with their toys and swapped them with two of my Kong toys!  very funny!

Catch up with you soon! x
