Louise has been enjoying her Christmas treats over the past few days. In particular is one 'turkey stuffed hoof' that she keeps coming back to. It's the sort of bone that takes her a solid week's worth of effort to complete. To illustrate this, I've got a few pictures to show her hard at work on it.
Oh yes - the other day we were out walking and encountered a fourteen year old Jack Russel terrier named 'Louis'. At first his owners were concerned because Louise was off-leash and Louis wasn't known to be very friendly to strange dogs. However, she poured on the charm and didn't advance too quickly, which really went over well with Louis. In short order his old tail was wagging and the two dogs had a pleasant little visit. On hearing Louise's name the owner of the other dog commented 'all you need now is another one named George.' This caught me a little by surprise as almost nobody picks up on the pop culture reference to Louise's name. I told him that he was exactly right and that in the past we have toyed with the idea of getting a little 'George Jefferson' to accompany 'Wheezie.'
For the record, we concluded that for now at least, this will be a one Pug household.
Anyhow, we are all looking forward to the adventures to come in 2010 and wish all our readers an exciting New Year.
