We had xmas dinner and had to wear stupid hats. I lay down and watched my favorite film lassie.

Later in the day bri asked me ,if i would go to meet a young man with learing difficulties in a few weeks. This young man can not own a doggie but no one will let him walk any. Me and whiskey agreed to go, after Brian said were probably not fostering anymore.....YEAH.

Anyway i think i know who santa is, whos ruddolph and whos the elf.I think he has a shed on wheels which he sprinkles magic dust on and it changes into a magical sledge. Bri said santa has a blog he does in his own time, but he has been that busy-and tired at his deliverys that he hasnt done it since 23rd

wow xmas



On Xmas Eve i heard a noise and it was santa. He told me to keep an eye on all the presents , incase the unruly ones and Sean got up and began to peek at the presents. I had a sniff for mine then guarded them.

memory of our sweet Taz

Big Ned


We were really happy to see a xmas card off ned. He is doing really well with his new family in scotland.He is a handsome devil like me(dont tell him i said that).

This was really nice to see for dad, as he saw a poor dog knocked down and he tried to save her but she died in his arms. He was really upset and angry as there was lots of cars but no one would help.The poor girls family turned up and needless to say they were really upset.

Dad said this is why we must never ever go out on our own , because he would keep us safe when were out with him.I agreed with dad and made a point of telling the others


we got some new coats today. I was not amussed so i gave it to whiskey. Whiskey thought he was really cool in pink. jasper looked amased saying dont you dare.

Dad returned from work today and we told him that Santa is real. he must be as ruby went to her new home yesterday, after speaking to santa.I really wish ruby well and hopes she continues to build her confidence ( i am missing her already, wish that pippa had been rehomed instead)

Dad told us that its uncle Anths birthday(64). I asked if paris (remember her) and jojo were planning a party.Dad said if they were i would not be invited as i bark at him and bullied paris last time i saw her.I dont do that now, but i used too until i got to know him. Thinking about it i wouldnt have been able to go, as i am washing my hair anyway. Dad washes his but i dont know why he bothers( he s got none).

I have asked for Rubys address to send her a card. Bri said liz will give it to me and he would go to post office with me to post it at the weekend.Now i am starting to worry with it being xmas, as this is when some dogs need our help. I have told dad to keep the phone of the hook till after xmas, but dad said would i like being alone in a kennel at this time of year.I said no but i would just go to John and Brendas everyone else does. Anyway if xmas gets too hectic, i am going on my hols to gemmas like whiskey does.

I got up quite early today and thought to myself - I carnt carry on calling bri and liz what i do now and thinkin about it i have been here over 18 months. So am going to call them mam and dad all the time now.


we went out and got our tree, i really enjoyed watching Mam and Dad decorate it.i told them that we needed a fairy on top and should i put whiskey up there.Dad said no. well find an angel.It set me thinking about taz .This will be our first xmas without her.

Is Santa real





Today there was ice everywhere, but hey who cares( not me today).So we jumped in the van with Bri and Liz then headed off (i knew where we were going but the others didnt).

We arrived at hamsterly and yes it was really icey, but i was really exited. we headed off into the woods for a walk, but i was ahead for once. We walked a distance and returned on the path near the river to the van.

Bri drove the van futher up and we got out to pick our xmas tree - i was really excited but they had none left in the size we wanted.So I was really unhappy so we stayed with liz, and bri went into the shop.Minutes later bri shouted for us to all come into shop. We did and bri told us to follow him. We walked into this area and i couldnt believe my eyes. Santa was sitting there and asked for our names. I could not look incase i felt he was watching me (thats when i get nervous and bark),we told him our names and we all told him what we wanted for xmas. Ruby started to cry sayin that she wanted a mam and dad that would love her forever.

Santa listened to Rubys story,then agreed to try and help her.I was in shock at seeing him.we headed off home,everyone quite happy. We all sat beside the fire to get a warm and the phone rang.Liz answered the phone and Ruby may have her wish of a forever home to go to on monday.so i will keep my pawz crossed for her.

So to everyone readin this, who thinks santa is not real. We are good dogs and saw him today.To anyone who hasnt seen him perhaps you havnt been as good as you think!

Bri and sean had been out today in the van.When they returned with a motorbike, I said to the others "stuntman must think he is evil kieneval ".

Anyway we all sat down with brian and talked about xmas.Pippa said she wanted a pink dress off santa.Whiskey said he wanted the same(WHAT).AND jasper said he wanted lots of treats.

Me and ruby sat laughing together and went into the dinning room.When we were there ruby said "is santa real". I couldnt believe she was asking such a stupid question. So i suggested she go out to hamsterley tommorow with us, bri and liz- as we are picking our xmas tree..When were there- if were good.We might get a peek through santas grotto door and see santa.Does that answer your question- " Is santa real".

Ruby then said "all I wants for xmas is for santa to get her a mam and dad that will lover her forever"

I walked away at this point, as i was getting tears in my eyes and the others would laugh at me!

Today we got up early 6.30am . Within 15 mins we were going out for a walk with liz, then bri left for work , i looked at the snow and thought DAFT.we were waiting to go out still, when bri came back in and tells liz, someone has ran into his car - sending him sideways then on two wheels.I thought STUNTMAN laughing to myself.
we waited a while until the roads were a little clearer, as it was too dangerous to walk near the road and too cold to cross the beck.So we jumped in the landrover and went to ballihope.Bri was moaning about being in pain to sean all the way. I sat and just giggled to myself- thinking even i know a car has 4 wheels and is supposed to stay on all four.
We arrived at ballihope and we noticed there were no cars or anyone anywhere to be seen.We all got out the car and began to run around- then bri said " isnt it quiet"Yeah DAFT i thought the snow is about 8 inches deep here thats why( but i kept my thought to myself).The others were running around like stupid kids on a day out.so i just plodded around and watched.Then i had a thought!
So when we went home and liz came in,I suggested that ruby could get a home in iceland- she d be happy there the daft dog.

Brian came back from work today, whiskey was playing up and barking so brian let him in the garden. he was running around and wouldnt wait - Me and ruby watched whiskey from the door telling him to stop being stupid.But no! no one listens to me and you can guess what happened next. Brian put all our coats on then we went to the park, it was freezing and i just watched as whiskey, ruby and jasper chased the ball- Why do they do it-I think it was because i didnt want to go and they made me stay out longer. Just wait till xmas I will show them all!

Now youll see what i mean when i say i keep them all in check, they just run wild and do dares (when i am not there)-like daring each other to jump in the beck in this weather.They must be stupid with it being so cold. I think they have been hearing about pip or talking to him on the phone to get these ideas.


Today i didnt feel too well so i decided not to go for a walk and stayed infont of the fire with tootsie. you can tell i relaxed more when the unruly ones were out.just needed to get warm and feel sorry for myself.I told bri chocolate would make me better as i like chocolate, but he would not get me any ( think he only buys it for liz)
