Back from our Winter Hibernation!

Hello Everyone, and a belated HAPPY 2013!
 We hope you all had a pawtastic Christmas and that Father Pawmas got you all everything you wanted....and yes before you all ask, we were subjected the the terrible dress up act that happens every Xmas to doggy kind across the globe- ugh.
These ARE our happy faces 
Now I know a lot of different critters do it, such as bears & hedgehogs but we never knew Mum could hibernate as well. To make things worse she dragged us into the hibernation funk too. But even though we haven't been blogging we still have been up to lots of adventures-honest! But we better start by telling you all what we got up to over the holidays. Which was nothing. Truth be told doing nothing was great, while Mum was out at parties and getting stressy about all the Christmas food and decorations we just sat on our bums doing nothing to help. But how much is a doggy meant to help around the house anyway? We were not blessed with the luxury of opposable thumbs. We got lots of chewy toys and treats on Christmas morning, and a very special doggy Christmas dinner, complete with turkey and gravy- yum! I must say I'm glad the festivities are over, the ridiculous attire in public places is over..for another year! 
Can you believe Mum took me out like this?!
The weather on the other paw has been miserable, we haven't seen the sunshine in over a fortnight now, but before that it was so cold that the sand at our favourite beach was frozen, now that's cold, for us anyway.
Icy Feetsies
 Dante is still struggling with his legs, the cold weather certainly isn't helping, but on recontamination from the vets, who advised to take Dante up hills/ steps etc. to help strengthen his ligaments in his hind legs. So we go for hikes up the sand dunes almost everyday, and its is working wonders! He is still a bit stiff a night but he is less sore for the majority of the time and can get himself around much easier, hooray! It's great to see him having 'puppy' moments again, although he can get a bit carried away with the zoomies and often ends up hurting his back end in the process, very much swings and roundabouts. His diet is still strict & along with his many joint supplements and medication we are slowly getting there! 

A year new means new resolutions, but we have been so busy I guess we all forgot- well I don't need to make any because as we all know- I'm perfect ;) We do hope that if you have made any you are sticking to them! We are looking forward to what 2013 is going to bring, Dante will be 5, Daisy Boo 3 and me a big old 2! There is another 'thing' coming into our lives soon. Now I don't know what is going on but Mum went away for almost a whole day, came back smelling all funny, with some photographs. Any idea?!

We hope you are all good & will pop by for a visit very soon.

  12. Happy New Year to all of you! LOVE that paw-on-hand picture - just beautiful!

  13. Howdy Mates, glad to see ya. Happy New Year to you all. We can't wait to see what is attached to that paw!! Hey and how the heck did you get your mum to let you sleep on her bed??? We want to know now so we can do it too. It looks sooooo comfy. See ya soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  14. Nice to have you back, you have been missed! I think it is gonna be fun and maybe a bit of trouble!

  15. Great pictures. Glad to hear Dante is doing well. :)

  16. That's a cat's paw Samson!!! Mate beware, these are terrible creatures! We got one too a couple of months ago, and since the little devil's shat in my basket more times than i have paws to count on, he steals the best spots around the house, and is everyone's favorite, getting all the good food and attention! If i were you, i'd make sure your mom never goes back to pick that creature up!
    You all look great and big cuddles to Dante for being such a good boy!
    Lots of love, Indigo and Malach

  19. Sampson....
    I never dress Rose up for Christmas. Or Halloween, for that matter!! Why? Because she would hate me for it!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;-}
    Turkey and gravy?! You are my Rose's envy now!! Not that she never got any turkey.... ;)
    I do not think that I have ever seen--or felt--frozen sand before!! Brrrr.... ;-]
    I am so relieved to read that Dante is improving!! Fingers--and paws!!--crossed for him!! And I just sent a quick mental prayer for his health!! ;->
    Oh.... I know exactly what your mysterious "thing" is!! I possess an inner Sherlock Holmes, remember? But, I shall not tell.... ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  20. We are so happy you are back!!! Love that pic of the frozen feets!! And look at that cute puppy paw! Does this mean a new little one??? Happy New Year right back at ya! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

    Have a great year,

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
