My Christmas

Father Christmas came to our house (he didn't finish the milk we left for him so I tried to finish it but my tongue wasn't long enough to reach the bottom of the glass !) and brought everyone some nice presents.

Mum and Dad hosted the Christmas lunch at our house and I was happy to see all the family; they have been following all my adventures on my blog so they all congratulated me - needless to say, I quite enjoyed all the attention. There was a lot of eating, drinking, laughing, singing and dancing, I must say it was a bit hard to get some rest with all the noise...

Look you can see some of my Christmas presents, I love playing with them !

I hope you all had a happy Christmas and got some nice presents...

I'd love to be a sailor !

I'd love to be a sailor on a fishing boat, what an adventure that would be, and as much fish to eat as I want ! Mum says I might get sea sick though, so I'll only go if the sea is calm, and Dad says to watch out for the fish bones, so I'll have to wait until someone is kind enough to remove them for me...

Fun with a gym ball

Is this the biggest ball you've ever seen ? Can't really catch it, but it's great fun to lie on it, although I wish it would keep still, it's a bit hard to stay on it when it starts rolling !

I'm little red riding hood's guardian angel !

Amelie read me the story of little red riding hood; I think little red riding hood should never have been walking in the woods on her own, she have had some canine protection, but Amelie says the wolf is much bigger than me and would have eaten me as well. Even so, the hunter would have saved us anyway !

I'm a clown !

Dad says I'm a clown because I bring laughter and joy around me; well I'm really happy if I can brighten your lives, but I don't know about this wig Dad put on me, even though he says it's part of the job...

I love picnics !

I love picnics so much that I've found a way for Mum and dad not to leave me behind :

I'd love to be a Diva !

Dad says a Diva is a nice lady who wears nice clothes, sings and gets lots of presents from her admirers; that sounds like a good life, so Mum found me some nice clothes, Dad found me a name La Bellissima Canina, so now I'm ready to live the life of a Diva !

I'm cold !

The funny thing about living in Melbourne is how the weather changes : a month ago it was hot, and now it's summer but it's cold, so I asked Mum for some suitable clothes, but Dad says it's not cold like in Scotland where my friends Hamish and Martha and Bailey live or in the USA where my friends Jazzi, Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java live, and besides it will probably be hot tomorrow ! Anyway, I love this hat, do you think it suits me ?

Selamat pagi !

I'd love to go to Indonesia, it looks so beautiful and not too far from home, but I've heard that ladies have to be very well covered, so Mum found me this. I think it's very nice, but not very pratical for running...

Home Sweet Home

Here you can see me at home on my sofa, relaxing and having a little conversation !

Helping around the house

I love helping around the house, especially cleaning plates, Mum says I do such a good job !
I'd love to help around more, so Mum gave me some ironing (Dad's shirt) and sweeping. Well I don't think it's going to be as much fun as cleaning the plates, and I'm scared of using the iron, it's hot and it hisses, help !

Have you been a good doggie ?

Mum says Christmas is coming up and that Santa will be delivering presents all over the world. That's a lot of work for him and I think I could be his little helper. Mum found me a nice costume, so now I'm ready to help you, Santa !
Dad said you have to be a good doggie to get a a present, so to help Santa, I'm finding out who's been a good doggie this year, can you please answer my poll ?

Jambo !

Mum often talks about Africa, I'd love to go there and play with all the animals in the jungle; Dad says the lion is king of the jungle and would probably eat me, but I think lions are so nice, they're like big cats and I love cats. So I think I could be queen of the jungle, don't you agree ?

In Africa, Mum says there are big markets where you find all sorts of food, colourful clothes and crafts, I'd love to go there and buy lots of things !

Dad found me some really nice African names : Alake (One to be cuddled), Isoke (Good gift from the Lord- it's like my brother Matthew, his name means gift from God) and Makena (Happy one).

Ni Hao !

I'd love to be a Chinese Empress, all dressed up in nice clothes, and I'd have lots to servants to bring me treats and walk me, but Dad said, you already have your family to walk you and give you treats (and thanks to all of you leaving comments on my blog I've had plenty !).
So for the nice clothes, this is what Mum found me, I love them, thanks Mum !

Dad found some names that would fit me : Yue You (Happy and Friendly), Li ming (Beautiful and Light), or Shu Fang (kind, gentle, sweet), what do you think (please answer the poll)  ?

Hola !

I'd love to go to Peru and Bolivia like my Mum when she was a little girl. Viva la Fiesta !

Aloha !

I'd love to see the world but Mum says I wouldn't be able to travel with her on the plane so she bought me some costumes from around the world so I could travel without leaving home ! Here's the first one, it's Hawaii :

I'd love to have a hawaiian name too, like Lelele (it means friendly), Miliani (gentle caress) or Neolani (mist of heaven)...

I want to fly like a butterfly !

I love butterflies and I'd be so happy if I could fly like a butterfly; Mummy says I can't fly, but she did find me some beautiful butterfly wings, I love them !

Bed time !

Look what mum found for me, nice pyjamas !
You know, I love having a good sleep and I think I'm going to sleep really well in these pyjamas, I can't wait for tonight !

Look what I found !

I found this on the sofa and Dad said it's used to choose what's on the television. So I think I'll keep it so I can watch more interesting things like the 101 dalmatians or Beethoven.
Speaking of movies, the Fido film awards are coming up and I want Dug (from the movie 'Up') to win, he's my favorite !

And thanks for all your comments, I got 3 more treats !

I love dinosaurs !

Dad said that dinosaurs ruled the earth a long time ago and that some people found their bones - wow, they must have been huge, I'd love to chew one of them, yum !

So Mum found me a dinosaur costume and Dad said, look, we've found a new species of dinosaur, we'll call it "Bellasaurus Caninosaurus" !

And thanks for leaving your comments, I've had 3 treats already !

A nice walk in the park

Mum and Amelie took me for a walk in the park, it was really nice; look at all the flowers, aren't they pretty ? There were some other doggies, but Mum wouldn't let me play with them; one of them growled at me, I don't understand - all I wanted was to play with him !

I want to change the colour of my hair !

I'd love to have long, shiny, silky black hair, but what do you think ? does it suit me ?

Leave a comment !

Dad said I would get a treat for every comment posted on my blog, so please leave a comment, I'm hungry !

Birthday celebration !

Today was my brother Matthew's birthday so we had a party. I got him a nice present : some little things called "gogo crazy bones" you can see them on the photo, but he won't let me play with him, he's afraid I'll swallow them - I thought bones were for doggies ! I couldn't have any cake because it has chocolate, it's not fair !

It's hot !

Today it was hot so I wanted to sun bake, but Dad said I couldn't because I would roast, but how am I going to get a nice tan ?

So Dad found me a spot in the shade; oh well, I guess it will have to do...

When we went to the beach after dinner, I had to slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, and slap on a hat.

My sister Amelie loves me and takes good care of me; after the beach, she gave me a bath so I could be pretty and have silky hair and healthy skin !

I love the playground !

Dad took me to the playground and I had lots of fun !
I love running down the slide; I tried to go on the swing but I kept falling off !

I went on the see-saw too...

I want to be an artist !

I'd love to be an artist, so mum got me everything I need and I'm ready to start !
She's an artist herself, so she's going to teach me.
I'll put all my artwork on my blog so you can all have a look.
What do you think I should paint ? Cats are nice (my mum made a really nice drawing with some cats), but it's going to be hard to get them to pose for me, every time they see me they run away, but all I want to do is play with them !
