Dear All - hope you have had a nice festive period. We had a great day -
despite my lack of main pressie, Daddy got us some doggy mince pies, and Aunty
Clare gave me a special dog stocking - so we had some stuff to open, play with
and munch. Mummy remained remarkably calm whilst cooking, and it all went great
- we got a bowl full of Christmas dinner and I can vouch that it was definitely
one of her better efforts.
the end of the night we were all exhausted, with full tummies and the humans had
all had a fair amount of Christmas spirit - mostly Port. Off to show Grandma and
Daisy-May Toadsmoor lake this morning, to run off some of that food.
- Update - my pressie was sent via Parcelforce - who have lost it - they are pants!
- don't use them! - from one very fed up dog. xx
Merry Christmas everyone - here is a special DogBlog card for you all...
Oh, and there is still no sign of my pressie....
It's just not fair - everyone else's Christmas pressies have arrived now
and Mummy is busy wrapping them all up and getting them under the tree - but my
pressie hasn't been delivered! Mummy did chase it again this morning, but they
seem to have lost it. I may just have to throw a fanny-flop-drawers (quite spectacular
to behold!!) if they don't get it here in time.
So we popped into Joyce's to collect some pork she had got for us, and Mummy
had a Baileys in her coffee - this was 11.30a.m. We finally left at 5.30p.m. (One
bottle of champagne and most of a bottle of Baileys later) and Daddy had to come
and collect us because Mummy was drunk as a Lord! Talk about getting into the
Christmas spirit! She did stumble around the fields with me when we got home -
which took her ages because of the wobble she had on - so at least I got a good
walk. I suspect she will have a bit of a sore head tomorrow!
is definitely feeling guilty about the reindeer costume - she gave me this cracking
big bone to try to appease me. It has worked but don't tell her that - all this
grovelling is definitely good for working cocker soul!
have hurt my paw again and am back to limping around like a pathetic mutt. Mummy
has checked it out and can't find anything foreign lurking in there so I think
I have just sprained my ankle or something - but Beating is off for the foreseeable
future - baahh!!
met a new friend today on my morning walk - Mac the Westie. He is only 6 months
old and a little ball of fun fluff who tried desperately to keep up with me around
the woods. His Mummy took this picture of him when he got home - I think I wore
him out! Unlike Daisy May, he didn't try to duff me up either - perhaps when Grandma
comes for Christmas we'll introduce Mac to Daisy and see what he thinks of her.
Cockers are supposed to be intelligent, noble, dignified and handsome - they are
not, and I repeat NOT supposed to be dressed up as reindeer so Mummy can create
a Christmas card. I am decidedly unimpressed, and will make her pay for the rest
of the year for putting me through this embarrassing activity.
only consolation was that I made it as difficult as possible for her to get a
decent picture, and at least managed to refuse the flashing Santa hat - which
I ate before she had the chance to get it back on my head. Merry Xmas my ar*e!!
Finally Mummy has sorted out her reader thingy and we have pictures - so
we are going to go back a bit to catch up. First we went over to visit Aunty Dee
and her 3 mad hounds pictured below. I always enjoy myself over there as we get
to run and play lots and it is nice to have some pals to chill out with.
