Our guests all left a couple of days ago and they has all moved back in together into their very own home, here in Cumbria, so we will still get to see them lots. Moving from one side of the country to another seems to take a lot of effort. I thinks I’ll stay here forever! I is pleased to have the house back to ourselves, although I think Arran will miss them a lot, especially this little thing. We looked after Poppy for a week whilst the peoples did all the important packing stuff for their move. All they did was play all day. I had to do tellings off of them quite a lot.
Cousin Ben did not be sure he wanted to go! He and Auntie Toni has beed living with us for about 2 months now. He has really perfected that sad labralook. (And the stealing of all our toys, I thinks he takes one out into the garden everyday, and you know, I cannot play with it if it has other dog slobber on! Or drink from the same water.) Anyway, they has all settled into their new home now.
We had a very nice, busy Crispmas again. We had four dogs and seven people, including us staying here and we had to go visit grandpawents and TND’s family too. I had a very happy Crispmas. Although I did not eat my dinner I got lots of treats and turkey.
We got a stocking with a toy each and some treats left on the bed for us, that the easiest way to know it finally Crispmas day. I open mine and then I help Mum and TND open theirs. They really like that. Who doesn’t like to has tooth marks in their presents? Usually though they does not have anything very interesting, where as we got a sausage each!
We went round to Grandparents, where Rusty be dressed as Santa Paws. That Dog next to him be Lily, she Auntie Tricia’s new dog. Auntie Tricia went to grandpawents house for dinner too. Arran and I did not really like Lilly, she beed frightened of us. Hehe! She a really squiggly bouncy puppy, just the kind I has to do tellings off to.
Later we went back to our house and opened more presents with Auntie Toni and co. Poppy did not really understand the whole Crispmas thing. I think I understood it right away, even when I did be a little rabbit-dog. Then we went to TND’s family and we got even more presents. Everyone bought us presents because we is special.
We had lots of presents to open as TND’s little niece person be 3 now, she had picked us some presents herself. She chose treats and a stag bar, doesn’t that be clever? She calls me Uncle Ludo now. Arran got a bit (very) frightened because he thinks christmas crackers is going to kill him and he had to be picked up on Mum and TND’s lap once they had gone bang at the dinner table and he got soo upset. So they has had to be banned in our house now.
But I had a very nice time and that all that really matters, right?
He did relax enough to come play some games later though. For some reason we kept getting moved out the way when we walked all over these thingies. Human games seem to be very complicated. They had to move these cards over and match them up. It not as good as tug, or bitey face. I think a much more fun game for them would have been taking turns to stroke Ludo all the time. Don’t you?
Having lots of extra family around sure means we got a good haul this year. Mum only got us about three things!
Hope you had just as nice a time as we did!
pee ess: I is feeling very well and energetic now. I had another couple of days of not feeling great and being sick a lot, but since everyone went home I am feeling really happy! I do like things to be normal.
