Christmas Pheasants and Christmas Presents

We are just getting over all the eating..and excitement of Christmas now so I thought I would let you see some of our Christmas Day pictures. It has been one of the warmest Christmas Days in the UK for many years and so no snow - and when we looked out of the window we had an unexpected visitor:

This pheasant spent a happy time looking for food in our garden:

Or maybe he had an eye on our presents! Aoife and I waited patiently in the kitchen:

while Alfie Crybbe (as the little man of the house) had first look at the Christmas stocking:

He knew which rawhide treat he was after: the one and only Christmas tree:

But once he was happy, we could sort through the other treats:

Rawhide bones and lollipops

Squeaky turkey and reindeer stuffie

Caoimhe got a tasty lollipop and I tackled the rawhide stocking:

Very tasty!

Aoife did get a treat too but 'cos she's the smallest and her teeth aren't big and strong yet she always eats hers in a crate with the door shut to keep us out (as if we would take it from her - haha) and so we couldn't get any photos!

Hope you all had a very happy Christmas too!


  1. What a pretty pheasant, he's lucky he is not someone's Christmas dinner!

    Looks like Santa was good to you both :D


  2. Wow, Magic - that pheasant looked bigger than you! Hope you both had a nice Christmas!

  3. I have always wanted to try those rawhide lollipops! And I like your visitor as well!

  4. Yummmmm!!! Enjoy those rawhides.

    XXXoOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. Lucky ones.....I loves rawhides......mum loves the face statue in your garden, makes it look like there are ancient ruins that need digging up. I can help with that!

  6. Such a beautiful bird! Loooks like you have some grrreat chewys!

    woos, Tessa

  7. Ah so cool to have the bird in your yard! Yuki and Rocket would've gone crazy if they saw it!

  8. Your brother and sister has quite an interesting name. Can you teach me how to pronounce those?

    Thanks for visiting mydogslove.me. It means alot to me.

    Can you eat the raw hide stocking or is it just for chewing purposes? My dogs could really eat those things and swallow them up in 15 minutes.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  9. Wow, you had a very beautiful visitor! We've never seen anything like her in pawson.

    Happy Holidays, Magic and family!!

    Your friends,
