I heard from my nephew Ralph in the week. He’s settling in well and so far is being a very well behaved boy. I’m sure that will change. He sent me this lovely photo too. I wonder if he’s getting as excited about Christmas as I am? I just can’t wait. I’ve seen my pile of presents and I really want to open them now. To be fair I don’t know what I’m more excited about, the presents of the fact I’m going for a really good doggy romp in the morning. I’m guessing with how the weather has been there is going to be lots and lots of mud. I do hope Mum is going prepared. She’s always got towels for me, but I hope she remembers to take a change of clothing for her or she’s going to look very odd when she sits down to Christmas lunch with the rest of the family.
Today I’m going to see my maternal human grandparents and cousins. I can’t wait. I don’t think I can be in the restaurant part for the meal, which is a shame as I was hoping for some turkey, but I guess Mum might save me some if I’m lucky. After all, she’s trying to cut down so I would be helping.
I guess this is my opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas. I do hope Santa brings you everything you asked for and that you have a wonderful time whatever you are doing. I know for some Christmas can be a very lonely time, I just wish I could come and give all of you who are lonely or sad a dog lick and snuggle to cheer your Christmas. Perhaps I should set up a doggy Christmas day visiting service to go and see those with no one to spend the day with and no dog to cuddle. Anyway, I’m sending you all virtual licks and cuddles. A very special happy Christmas to all my family in Switzerland too. I know I can’t be with you, but I’m thinking of you all.
All my love
