Hello 2015 and a happy snow dog


Before I begin, I’d like to celebrate the new year with one of my new favourite photos of Jess. I could just squish her! She makes me talk all smushy and high pitched. Oh so much cute.

So hello 2015! My feeling for 2015 so far is simply ‘do what you love’. For me this is mainly aimed at my shop. I spend too much time worrying about what people would want to see in the shop. I know keeping my customers happy is important, but I wasn’t happy with my end results. So far so good though, I’ve created some lovely, detailed items, that I’m really proud of :)

As for the end of 2014, we finally saw a bit of snow! It was good while it lasted, it just didn’t last very long! But I managed to have some fun with Oscar as I was home at the time. He’s a typical retriever and loves footballs, won’t go out without one. Here we are in the garden…

Notice how the video fades out at the end? That’s not some fancy editing, that’s my phone freezing up in the cold! It’s all better now, but it meant I couldn’t get any more photos! I managed to get this one on our car journey back to Lincoln though…


Maybe we’ll see a bit more before the spring comes!


Hello 2013 & Our Christmas diary


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…

Watching 101 Dalmatians and just having fun :)

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!
