Last night for New Years - my mum and dad dad had a little pawty outside under our Gazebo. Scarlet and Zoe were there too. We all had a delicious BBQ dinner, pre-dinner snacks, and sweets. Us dawgs did get quite a bit to sample - YUMMERS!
Mum brought out the candles to give mood lighting after the sky went dark. There were "pop-bangs" of fireworks..... enough to freak out Scarlet - who went to seek out a "bomb shelter" (under dad dad's desk) to hide in. I, however, was OK (mum says I am getting braver and braver!)
To review our year quickly.... I would have to say the highlight was my Birthday in May where I held the "Pawtners n' Pals" event in Blogville..... that was so fun!! Lots of presents were sent to my furiends all over the world!!
My Actual Birthday Pawty - With Scarlet and CAKE!
The other big highlight was the purchase and delivery of our Brand New Caravan ( I call it the peep kennel on wheels) and this has opened up hollingday opportunities we did not have before as a family - and I love that!!
Our first trip away.
Oh and who could forget our Blogville Olympic Games!!!!! I hosted the Equestrian Events and - BOL! - We sure did have some fun didn't we?????
Me gettin' in a little jump practice!!
More highlights for me included romps at the dawg park - this photo is so funny - I had to show you again. The light grey schnauzer to my right is "Bertie" and he is doing excellent "open mouthed" running while I am holding my tennis ball.
Is there anything better than "zoomies" at the beach??? I got to do that a fair bit this year.
Oh - and meeting my first real live Kangaroos in the Aussie Outback - how HUGE was that!!??
My Auntie Candy took in a dumped and frightened and homeless pup .... and called her Georgie. She was about 12 weeks old when she was found - and she has made it into "pup heaven" by living with my Auntie Candy!!
We are not sure what kind of breed mix she is - but she is getting along very well with her Staffie brother. She had her "big girl" surgery in November.
More stuff you didn't know - we had a HUGE scare with Scarlet in November too.
Scarlet and Zoe were at the local dog park..... when Scarlet collapsed suddenly, went totally limp and uncie had to rush her to the V-E-T-S quick smart. She went on doggie life support and gave everyone a huge scare for 24 hours. She got better - but the vet could not really work out what caused the collapse. Uncie is still battling with the "Pet Insurance" people who are very quick to sign up the peeps to buy the policy - and take their monies every month..... but when it comes to PAYING out on a medical trauma..... there is LOTS of time and procedure they must go through. So uncie is still battling for payment!! So I'm sending the company a "Phrrrrrrtttttt!!" because that is delaying Scarlet and Zoe's treat monies!!! GGgggggrrrr!
Don't do that again will ya Scarlie....... that was real skeery!
She is 100% better now.
I'm still playing soccer with my Big Purple Ball - and yes to your comments over my Christmas gifts ...... come over and help me play with them all!!
This is a well deserved "nana nap" after playing soccer.
Anywho - Mum and I wish to send our sincere thank you to you all who read and comment on this blog - you are amazing - even if we don't always get around to keeping up with everyone! We try - we really do.
Have a HAPPY and HEALTHY New Year one and all - and we look forward to your adventures throughout 2013!!
