Three Christmas greeting with the first from Lucy aka Lucinda. Thanks Sue and Jim. Have a lovely Christmas and hope all is going well in your new home.
"Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year
Sue,Jim and Lucy!!"
Next greetings are from the Lunn family who have Archie who's mum is Smudge and dad is Reggie and is from Smudge's first litter born in 2012. Good to hear from you Angie wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and thanks for the update and photos of Archie.
"Hello everyone ,
Hope you are all enjoying the excitement of the build up to Christmas Day! We are heading up to Yorkshire tomorrow for our annual visit! Archie is a great traveller and usually snoozes on the 5 hour trek!
( not the most exciting of journeys ,so a great plan!) We'll take him for a long run on the beach beforehand! We have met a couple of Poundlane pups on Exmouth beach recently- all lovely cavapoos and lovely owners!
Archie has been round delivering presents to his girlfriends!
His particular favourite is Molli, ( in photo below) aworking cocker, and they love their weekly meet ups and runs in Topsham or Haldon forest. Here they are playing leapfrog ( or leapdog) .
Molli is much more nippy and Archie often stands looking confused when she has shot off in the bushes!
Archie is still our sweet tempered and easy going boy and only barks when the neighbour's cat dares to venture in the garden, which she often does!
She crawled commando style across the conservatory right above Archie who was merrily chomping on a bone last night. She even stopped right above him! Just like a cartoon!
This photo was taken just after
a bath . An hour earlier he was covered from head to foot in manure and looking very pleased with himself! It was not a pleasant journey home in the car!
We discovered today that he is scared of wrapping paper rolls and hid until they were put away! Hannah had used one as a trumpet and he wasn't impressed!
Have a brilliant time and some well earned relaxation time!
I read your blog weekly and love all your stories! You should make them into a book!
Love and very best wishes to you all - two and four legged! And a merry christmas too from Archie to his eight brothers and sisters! Would be amazing to have a reunion with them all sometime!
Angie, Jon , Hannah and Archie xxxx"
Last greeting tonight is from Archie's sister, Flora, but Flora is from Smudge's second litter born Spring this year with the dad being Reggie again. Thanks Lucy and Alan for letting me know how special Flora is to you and have a great first Christmas together.
Just a quick email to wish you and your family a very happy Christmas!
Flora ( Smudge and Reggie '14) is fantastic, she has been life changing and we love her for it.
So, no sparkling trinket or exquisite perfume under the tree this year for me , instead a very sensible weather proof dog walking coat, - wouldn't have it any other way!
Very best wishes to you all for 2015.
Love from Lucy and Alan , and a big lick and a 100 wags from Flora"
Finished milking tonight, don't work now until Boxing day evening, so I'm now in the zone, my Christmas mojo has arrived on cue, countdown started and I'm cranking up the children. Christmas is a marathon event, it's about pacing yourself, peek to early and it will be tears before bedtime come Christmas day. Sprinting ain't my thing, I'm more steady, stamina with an unflinching determination to complete mission Christmas. It's Christmas ! I'm coming through, let the games begin. Lol
