There are so many holiday festivals this time of year- as well as the new year starting- that I think 'happy holidays' works well to cover all of them!
We celebrated Christmas with lots of Mummie and Daddie's family this year! GrannyNanny gave me and Ambam special presents; treats for sensitive tummies, and soft chews for myself (the toothless wonder, Mummie calls me!).
Mummie and Daddie gave me a lovely soft, furry squeaky bone, and Ambam got a ball-onna-rope, she LOVES it! In return we gave Mummie and Daddie lots of big kisses and cuddles and love-burps, which is when you stretch up on all four tippy toes and stretch your neck out and put your nose in your loved ones face and then, looking deep into their eyes, burp softly at them. It signifies deep affection and happiness.
Not bad manners.
...Though the two often get confused, I must admit.
In other news, Daddie did something which made everyone go squeak squeak squeak, and get all excited and happy. He did get down on one knee and ask Mummie something about some lady called 'Mary' and then gave Mummie a rock on a metal ring.
Mummie and NannaGranna were very happy about this, but the rock-onna-ring wasn't edible, so I didn't understand the excitement, personally.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful new year celebration planned! May 2012 bring love, happiness and joy to you all!
Lots of wuffles and sniffs and sighthound cuddles, from Nibs and Ambam, Dally, Tig, Mummie and Daddie! xxxxxx
