Review of 2011


I have so enjoyed reading other reviews of last year I thought I would post some of my memorable moments so here goes:

January - the snow had gone but it was still cold so me and Lace  looked out the best spot in the sun. 

February - I came second in the puppy class at Northern Schnauzer Club Show.

March - our new conservatory was built.

April - a little affenpinscher came to live with us - my sister Aoife.

May - Leigh's nephew came to visit and we got on very well together.

June - the family all went to Bramham Horse Trials and had a little picnic together.

July - Another sister arrived! My own little sister Caoimhe.

August - my brother Kaska celebrated his 11th birthday

September - I went to York with my sister Caoimhe and we had a boat trip along the river.

October - Caoimhe decides she would like to be a wine-taster when she grows up!

November - the saddest month - my brother Kaska passed over the Rainbow Bridge,

December - Christmas and New Year celebrations and lots of candlelights!

And just to finish a few more pictures from Christmas. The first one is Molly who lives with Leigh's brother in Northumberland sporting her Christmas present from Leigh. One of the bandanas made by Dex & Lou's Mum!

And here is a chocolate Santa with a mysterious message - more will be revealed soon!

You will have to wait to hear the news but I've whispered it to Caoimhe cos she couldn't wait!


  1. Wow!!! So many events. I'm glad I got to read this. It makes my blog tour easier for me.

    I didn't know you won in a dog event! That's so cool.

    Thanks for summarizing your year-round experiences. It makes my getting-to-know-you phase easier.

    Happy new year again.

    Huggies and Cheese,

    Happy New year to you, hope 2012 brings all that you wish for.
    Love and hugs George and Tess xxx

  5. Aww this was a great review! We're hoping to do this next year, since we didn't take blogging seriously until around May 2011 and we're missing lots of months. Happy New Year!
