Hi there peeps, it’s me again, McCartney. Well I can’t believe not only is it the end of another month but it’s also the end of the year! It was a month of celebrations here what with me turning 6 months old and then Christmas and New Year celebrations. I wasn’t sure about this whole Christmas thing to begin with.  It meant the shopping malls were really noisy and busy and mummy made me wear this special collar that hade candy canes and bells on it! Honestly my humans can’t get enough of dressing me up! However it turns out Christmas is actually lots of fun. I got to meet a very special man called ‘Santa’ at the ‘All Critters Animal Hospital’ and the ‘PADS Open House’ and have my photo with him. Mummy told him I’d been very good which I think means I get lots of presents.

Mummy and Daddy were funny and brought a tree inside the house too and then proceeded to cover it in sparkly things. I was told that I couldn’t touch it, which took me a while to understand as the pine needles sure were tasty to crunch on, plus they gave me ‘Alpine fresh’ breath!! I also had my first snow experience and boy was that fun – I got to pounce in it and it would ‘poof’ up in my face and then I’d try to eat it!!! I also got a visit with my mummy Roma and daddy Brass which was lots of fun. People say I look just like my daddy J I also went with mummy to her work Christmas party where I was on my best behaviour and lay quietly all night. On Christmas day I got my very own pile of presents to open, it took me a little while to get the hang of ripping the wrapping paper to find the treats inside but I soon got it!! I had a new nyla bone toy, ball on a rope, stuffy toy dog, puzzle wheel and some yummy milk bone treats!!
