Have you been a good doggie ?

I can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner, I'm looking forward to having a delicious meal with all the family and opening some lovely presents.
However I have been worried that I haven't been a good doggie all the time (for an example, see here under "my most emarassing moment"), but Dad told me that none of us can be perfect all the time, what matters is all the love that's in our heart and he says that I give plenty of love. What a relief !

I've been a good doggie too !

What about you my friends, have you been a good doggie ?
I'm sure you have, even if were a little bit naughty !

I asked my friends if they had been naughty, here's what they said :

Cinnabar :
"I am hiding in Mum's toys because I got in trouble : I was outside eating my lamb shank and got wet when it started to rain and then my paws were all wet and muddy and I walked all over Mum's clean floors. Mum told me she still loves me even when I get dirty and that she is going to get pop to make me a pair of shoes to keep my paws clean - he used to be a shoemaker before he retired."

Dad smokes and had dropped the end of his fang on the carpet and it made a small hole mom bought a rug to cover it over, but I liked the smell of it and decided I'd make it bigger, Well the carpet still covers it! I have also chewed the remote for the TV, and Dads new Phone cover!

When the mouse is away, the dogs sleep in her bed.

Haven't you heard this proverb ? Well my parents often call my sister Amelie "petite souris" or little mouse, and one night she went dancing and stayed at her friends place, so we made ourselves very comfortable in her bed :

Ollie, come and join me !

This is so nice

Time to sleep...

Family and friends are God's greatest gift. Together we love, laugh, cry, argue, forgive and inspure. Knowing that whatever we go through in life, they are therre with us.

Take care my friends and have a great week-end !

Hi friends you always make us enjoy our visit to your blog.

I have to tell you that sometimes I haven't been a good girl, when mom put my toys in their place, I look what she's doing, and after she left all in order I reorder it again, throwing them on the floor. They look nice on the floor, hope Santapaws forgive me and left me some gifts for xmas time.

We wont be on home for the next days, we have plans to retourn on the firsts days of january, so let us give you and your family our xmas greetings. Hugs and Love... Peggy

In this pic I show you how I like to decor the house.
