Christmas - Part 1!

JD - Hi everyone - we're sorry we haven't posted for a while....

We NEARLY had a white Christmas! This was our garden a few days before the big day - sadly, ALL the snow had melted by the time 25th December dawned - such a shame!

Max - ....we're afraid our humans have been extremely lazy recently doing things like sleeping and eating and entertaining friends and watching films and reading books and then eating some more!!

Male human gave us a chewy, squeaky Christmas Cracker toy on Christmas eve - we loved it! It had a great rope to chew on running through it - great fun!

JD - We're so sorry we haven't been to visit your blogs for a few days - sheesh - humans eh?!!

JD tries to shake his Christmas hat off - he wasn't really a fan!

Max - Still, we've been having a GREAT time! As the song says - 'we wish it could be Christmas EVERY DAY!!'

JD - Christmas Day was GREAT! We met up with loads of our pals at the park at 7.00 am- there were 8 humans and TWELVE doggies! We had SUCH a fun romp - we rarely manage to get together all at the same time you see!

Max - Well, the humans opened a few bottles of Bucks Fizz as they walked round and had a Christmas drink whilst us doggies played chase and bitey face together and investigated all the great sniffs!

JD - We don't have any photos of this memorable walk unfortunately, as the humans didn't have room for their flashy boxes with them because of the bottles and glasses they were all carrying - he he he! Still, as they said themselves - 'sometimes you have to experience the moment in the flesh (or fur!) instead of behind the lens of a flashy box' - or something like that at any rate!!

Female human came down with flu just before Christmas and was a bit poorly - she's only ever had flu once before and admits she moaned a LOT this time round, he he he! We looked after her by snuggling up on the sofa with her - judging by the goofy look on her face we obviously have healing paws! Hey - note Sparky's great picture on the sofa just behind - we're gonna blog about that soon....!

Max - Christmas has been SO much fun, our paws have barely touched the ground! We were far too young last year to have any idea what was going on - after all, back then we'd only lived with our new humans for a mere 6 days when Christmas Day arrived!

A fun snowman chew-toy from our pals Neo, Ellie and Stig!

JD - But this year we've enjoyed every second! So we thought we'd publish a few Christmas posts! Today's post is loads of photos of us opening some of our presents - wow, it was FUN! And guess what - today, even MORE parcels and cards turned up, so we'll post about these soon as we haven't had time to open them yet!

Us playing with a fun Snowman chew-toy - thanks Neo, Ellie and Stig, you're the best!

Max - We'd like to thank everyone for your Christmas wishes and Christmas cards and Christmas goodies - they've all meant so much. You're the best pals a couple of schnauzers could have!

Us investigating a huge pile of presents.....wow, some GREAT smells in here.....!

JD - We're very, very happy that we have made such great pals through blogging - we love you all!

Max - "Do you like our special Christmas stockings? Female human was everso excited when she bought us these - he he he!"

JD - "Oooh, another Christmas Stocking? From our mother-in-law you say? Ooh, it smells so good.....!"

JD - "Oh wow - a doggie treat cracker! I love our mother-in-law!"
Max - "I second that JD!!"

Max - "Hmmm, a very interesting looking box here from our pals Harry, Millie and Pretty Pippa! Wonder what's inside.....?"

Max - "Enough with the flashy box humans - open the present already!!"

JD - "Oh wow - a stuffie bone, a stuffie doggie, special treats for walkies and a big box of biscuits! Thank you Harry, Millie and Pretty Pippa - and your human the wonderful 'M', our treat lady of Holland Park!"

JD - "This is so exciting - we got a parcel on Christmas Eve from our pal Cobi who's from Singapore!"
Max - "We weren't allowed to open it until Christmas Day - posing with it and not being able to open it immediately was AGONY!!"

JD - "We finally got to open Cobi's present! Cobi sent us a keepsake box each - it is WONDERFUL!! Thank you SO much Cobi! We also love the salmon treats - super-yummy!"
Max - "Female human loved our keepsake boxes so much she cried a little! We'll make a clay paw-print each and display them with a photo of ourselves - when we've done this we'll blog about it and show you the end result. It's pawsome - we LOVE it! Thank you Cobi!!"

Max - And we hope you've all had as good a Christmas as we have!!

Max - "I love my new stuffie snake from the humans that hisses and also has bells in it - but I DO wish I didn't have to wear this hat.....sigh!"

My humans are doing the same thing... eat, sleep, read, watch movies, blah, blah, blah. What about ME?

Looks like a good holiday for you two, though. Thanks for the cool update.

Happy New Year JD and Max!

We share a common trait, I can't stand wearing hats also. My mom tried several times to put a santa hat on me for the Christmas card, she got a few pictures of me with a really depressed look on my face. Not really Christmassy. hehehehe

You've got nice pressies this year. Hope you enjoying the rest of the holidays.


HOPE said...

Thanks for rompin by..was soo good to hear from you two...I made my first post for 2010. Happy New Year to you all!!

Paws Up!

Wow, boys - your Christmas so far sounds like the most amazing ever!! (Will your humans adopt me? Hee! Hee!) Your morning walk sounds wonderful - I'd really love a brisk, cold walk right now and so would my humans - (they really miss their walks on Sunday mornings across the Cotswolds, followed by a hearty pub lunch!) - and then gosh, I could barely keep up with all your presents! That keepsake box sounds like such a wonderful idea - can't wait to read more about it!

(By the way, my human feels very bad but she was helping me make a very special present for you boys - but she ran out of time before they had to do all the packing & moving thing - so she'll have to contine & finish it when our things arrive on the ship from NZ. So sorry - please forgive the long delay!)
