Max - We apologise for not getting round to visit your blogs as much as we would like but we've been really busy supervising our humans....
JD - .... as they're off on holiday AGAIN next week you see - sigh! They're always abandoning us to gad about around the World, we're practically neglected you know!
Max - Mind you, the exciting thing about THIS particular holiday of theirs is that they're going to meet loads of our good blog friends in pupson, namely Fatty and Ally and Santa and Minnie and Christmas and Beckham and Cobi - how thrilling is THAT?!
JD - They're SO excited - they can't wait!
Max - So we have obviously been taking their holiday packing VERY seriously as we want to make sure they don't forget to pack any of the little gifts that we have chosen for our pals!
"No, honest we're not napping - we're making sure our humans are putting all the right things into their suitcases!"
JD - We're really going to miss our humans whilst they're away, but we do enjoy our stays at the kennels as we get rather spoiled!
Max - And we know that getting to cuddle our pals will help our humans feel better whilst they're away. But we DO wish we could go with them to meet all our blog pals in pupson too.
JD - They fly out on Wednesday so this will be our last post for a couple of weeks. Our humans usually take their netbook with them on holiday but this time they're going to really take 'time out' so will be leaving it at home!
Max - We're going to miss you whilst we're away - we'll try and visit your blogs before we go!
JD - But please visit our pals' blogs if you get a chance - you never know, you might get to hear what our humans have got up to before we find out about it ourselves!!
Max - Other exciting news is that we got a parcel on Friday all the way from Australia!
JD - We were very excited and set about opening it up at once....
Max - I finally manged to break through!
JD - We were very excited to see that there was an item for each of us - we were keen to find out what they were!
Max - Well! Look at this! Spectacular new collars - we could hardly believe our eyes!
JD - A lovely letter inside the parcel explained that our beautiful blog pal Honey had chosen them for us. Thank you so much Honey - we love them!
Max - Each collar is made of leather, each has a personalised engraved name plaque plus manly studs!
"We're afraid female human isn't a great photographer - this really does not do these beautiful collars justice. They're soft and comfortable - and the studs are SO manly! And we can't get over the fact that each of our names are engraved on a little plaque - white for Max and blue for JD - just wonderful!"
JD - Honey explained that she remembered the difficulty that we had experienced trying to find manly collars for the smaller doggie - we find that the smaller collar is usually a bit too girly in design for us.
Max - And as we're such butch doggies we were getting a bit frustrated by this, he he he! Well, the gorgeous Honey remembered this so when she saw these smaller collars in leather with manly studs on she thought of us!
JD - Isn't that just wonderful? Honey, you are so kind and generous! Thank you so much - they fit perfectly and we LOVE them - we've been strutting around in them and expect to get a lot of attention from the ladies as a result, he he he!
Max - As it's still Winter here though FH has told us we must keep our collars 'for best' until it's no longer wet and muddy outside.
JD - We want to keep our collars looking nice so we've happily agreed.
"We pose in our new collars. As it's Winter our coats are rather shaggy so sadly you can not see the collars too well - it might help if you biggify the picture. We think we look SO fine!"
Max - Before we leave we would just like to send love and hugs out to our blog pal Max and his mom who - as we're sure you all know - is going through a tough time at the moment.
JD - Dear Max, we think you're an amazing doggie and we're so pleased we've got to know you through the world of blogging. We just want to send you special schnauzer snuggles and let you know that we're thinking of you.
Max - So, we'll see you all in a couple of weeks. What we're planning on doing whilst our humans are away enjoying themselves is a whole lot of this....
"Ahhh, peace and quiet at last without the humans! All they ever do is walk us and train us and try to find 'new experiences' for us - sheesh! When can a puppy ever find time to relax and kick-back ...... zzzZZZZ"
JD - We'll see you all soon!
