Received this lovely update and New Year greetings from Rhian and Russ for Mollie, who is from Smudge's litter of Cavapoos born in 2014, with Reggie her Dad.
'Hi there all
Sorry we haven't been in touch for a while, but just wanted to wish a very Happy New Year to you all, human and Doggy. We had a lovely Christmas Day visiting all of the family, having Christmas lunch made for us (yet again, I haven't cooked a Christmas dinner for about 8 years now!!!!) It must be my turn next year. Mollie loves having all of the children around for a visit, even though they don't give her any peace at all, she gets really excited when they arrive but after about an hour she has had enough and tries to hide but no such luck, they normally find her within a couple of seconds so surrounded by cushions she feels a little bit safer.
She is such a good girl and is really funny In the evening around 9 o'clock when she decides she wants to go to bed. She sleeps at the bottom of our bed on her own blanket, and so when we get to bed she's already settled!!!! And normally she does not move until the morning.
On New Year's Eve when all of the fireworks were going off she didn't even flinch. They were so loud we were sure that she would be upset but they didn't phase her at all.
Before I close I just want to say how much I love the photo of the dogs shut in the stable, pretty apt for the time of year, where are the three wise men?
Have sent a couple of photos of her for you to see that she is still a beautiful little girl.
Happy New Year to you all
Rhian Russ and Mollie'
The going to bed thing Mollie does is similar to our dogs. At around the time we go to bed, they start filtering out to their dog beds and they do this in the morning, just before we do the school run, most will be out in their dog beds, by the time I'm nearly ready to go out the door. Thanks for letting me know how Mollie is getting on and I wish you all a wonderful New Year.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
