Ultimate snow day

We’re still waitin’ on snow here in Lincolnshire, and as I’m feeling festive I’ve been looking back at photos from our ultimate snow day! It was back in March last year, and I was visiting home when the snow came. These photos were taken in my dad’s garden with his black Lab Oscar :) It was probably the deepest snow I’ve seen, so we couldn’t stay out in it too long, especially with the dog, but it was still long enough!

I’m thrilled to shout out the words ‘we made the cover!’, like some sort of celebrity hitting the tabloids! But this is much more important; Max has been chosen as one of the many dogs to feature on the Christmas cards by Manchester & Cheshire Dogs Home!

They recently opened a competition via their Facebook page, asking for Christmassy dog photos. I entered both Jess & Max (Jess being a MDH dog), and although Jess isn’t starring on the cards, Max will of course be representing them both :) Can you spot him? Fourth row down, fourth across! These are the photos I entered…

There are four card designs, and the cards along with a stunning calendar can be purchased through their website :)

Hello 2013 & Our Christmas diary

IMG_4216

Today is the 1st January, and this is my first DogTailsBlog post of 2013 :) My Christmas was lovely, but just missing one thing… snow! Never mind, it will come soon. Over the festive period I was busy, busy, busy! My family are a little spread out, so I have a bit of travelling to do when it comes to Christmas time. As usual we ate delicious food, watched lots of films and wrapped tons of presents… and of course the animals were more spoilt than the humans!

So my Christmas looked like this…

Although I didn’t spend Christmas Day with Sam at home in Hull, he had lots of fun with everyone here and of course got lots of presents, and even more when I arrived back on New Years Eve Eve :)

So that’s Christmas 2012. I’m still waiting for someone to ask me ‘Oh, what’s your New Years resolution?’. But I don’t have one, and never do. A new year doesn’t have to mean a new you, you can make good things happen any time of year :) In 2012 I got my degree, and started my own business, and now i’m excited to expand on that and watch it grow in 2013 :)

Happy New Year, hope your 2013 is full of wonderfully wet noses & waggy tails!
