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!

Christmas Tree and Presents

Magic here again - Caoimhe said we had not been blogging for ages and ought to put up some more pictures of our Christmas preparations so she woke me up for that! Anyway - here is our tree now it's all decorated:

 and it has an owl on the top because the fairy has seen better days - at least that what Judith & Leigh said:

Alfie Crybbe is not impressed because he told us that owl has it in for him and jumped on him when he was trying to snooze and he had to go and hide in the crate while Leigh tied it on the tree a bit tighter. We have more decorations round the fireplace as well:

and then the best bit is the presents which are going under the tree- we keep checking them to see if they might be for us:

Sadly none of them are - yet. Can you see the lovely labels which Louis and Dexter's Mum made for her little online store?

Caoimhe is sure she can smell sea jerky but Leigh says no dog presents are coming out until Christmas Day - that's a whole week away. Does she not realise how long that is in dog-time? We have visitors again this weekend so probably no time for blogging again but I'll try and get Leigh to help me post again before Christmas. Thank you to all the bloggy friends who have sent cards and Christmas emails. We have been enjoying it very much :-)

Christmas is Coming!

Hello Blogging Friends - this is Caoimhe (I'm the one on the right). As you can see I've grown bigger than Magic now :-)) Here we are posing with our Christmas cards from Minnie and Mack, Frankie and Ernie and our dear friend Rubie - in the middle. Magic's got one ear out listening in case she can hear our dinner being prepared. Now that the cards are coming in our peeps thought it was time to get some Christmas decorations up and as Magic was snoozing I thought I would help out:

Me and Aoife trying to see if there are any treats in this Christmas bag.

This looks like a good tug toy!

Oh no it's got a bit tangled up with me and my teddy!

I'll soon get that out.

Aoife got a bit tangled in tinsel too!

In fact we had such fun with it I fell asleep before we finished and Magic never even woke up!!

More Christmas pictures to come when Magic wakes up and can get to blog again...and thank you to our bloggy friends for our cards and e.mails - us dogs are keeping our noses in front with the holiday greetings!
