Happiness grows when you share it

We love sharing our happiness and today we went to a retirement home to give some copies of our book "Paw Steps to Happiness".
The ladies enjoyed it very much and while I was sniffing around, Ollie was cuddled by everyone !

We have given so many copies of our book that we have nearly run out, so if you want one, you'll have to be quick !

We will be on vacation from the 3rd of January to the 13th of January at Skenes Creek, which is on the Great Ocean Road, one of the most beautiful places in Victoria.
We will be in a big house near the beach and I hear the beaches and the little towns like Appollo Bay are dog friendly.
We're very excited and we will tell you all about our vacation !

Dad has been playing with his new photographic toy he got for Christmas (a light tent) and he asked us if he could put some of the photos he took with it on our blog, so we said yes because it makes him happy !

Best wishes of health, joy and happiness for the new year to all our friends !
