Dog Bloggers Rule!

I have been absent from the blogosphere for the last two weeks because my secretary (Barbara) has been too busy shopping and wrapping to take my dictation. She also keeps forgetting to take the camera with her to document my adventures. She is very slack.

I want to thank all my blogging friends for their wonderful cards and e-cards. I enjoy getting all this mail and seeing your lovely cards. We did the math and I have gotten 7 times more cards than Barbara! I guess her family and friends are very slack also. Blogging dogs rule!

All the shopping produced many packages to wrap. I carefully inspected them all and found them to be very boring things like books and dvds. These fuzzy socks look like they could make a good tug toy though.

I have helped with the wrapping by trying to shed as many Gordon Setter hairs as I possibly can onto the present before she finishes wrapping it. I can tell you that many HBO words have been said around here and not by me.

We had a lot of rain over the weekend but today was beautifully sunny and cold. I love the cold because it makes me feel very skippy. We visited my boyfriend Trotter so we could run together in his fenced yard.

I stole his frisbee (that's the orange thing in my mouth) and raced away with it.

It feels so good to run as fast as I can.

Trotter and I waited intently for his person to throw the ball for us.

After some good running we played some bitey face games and then it was time to go home. We have to pack our bags for the holidays.

I hope that you and your people have a great holiday and that you get lots of treats and toys in your stockings.

Hey Niamh!! We wondered where you were, we missed you! Wow, your friend Trotter has a lovely big yard doesn't he?
You're right about the dog bloggers, we've made so many lovely friends in the short time since our blog was born, makes us feel all warm and fuzzy....wait....we're dogs...we're already warm and fuzzy! Oh well, you know what we mean. Have a lovely holiday and a very merry Christmas with love from your Scottish pals xx
