Barky New Year!

Hi everyone

We want to wish everyone a Barky New Year!

Our human's staying home with us tonight, to make sure Trixie learns to not freak out about the fireworks. But we went to the beach today for the first time in ages so we're both very, very tired, and have only been half-heartedly wuffling at the firecrackers going off in the street, and mainly just sleeping through them.

It's been ages since we've been to the beach, because we had to wait for Trixie to get her stitches out. It all started when our human said she was giving Trixie a spade for Xmas, which we thought was a bit weird, because Trixie's already very talented at digging with her own giant little paws.

And then our human didn't actually give her a spade. But that could be because Trixie went to the vet and came home with an owie and stitches on her tummy, and then we both had to keep quiet for forever!

So we didn't do much walking at first, and then only short walks. And we both had so much energy we just did lots and lots of barking - especially at all the unauthorised activity happening outside in the street.

But Trixie got her stitches out today and she's all better, and now we're exhausted after a long, long run on the beach.

And our human says now we don't have to worry about Trixie becoming mature on our road-trip at the end of January. Though, to be honest, we don't think there's much chance of anyone being mature on that trip - we're going with our friends Penny and Reyna - four Schnauzers in the back seat! But that's not until next year, and we'll have plenty of time to tell you about that when it happens.

Right now we want to tell you about our New Year's resolutions.

Firstly, because we need more balance in our lives, Trixie will spend more time doing doga...

... and Sasha will spend more time contemplating the universe...

And we promise to share our things!

Barky New Year, everyone!

Today's post is brought to you by the Number One.

One teensy black puppy, with
One white blaze on her front, and
One white tootsie, went walking
One morning, and met
One new puppy.

One minute of play-bowing in the freshly cut grass resulted in

Artist's impression

One burr-encrusted teensy puppy. It took
One whole episode of Merlin to remove
One giant handful of bindis. There were

111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111 bindis

Eleventy gajillion of them (that's lots and lots of ones).

Actual puppy 

One bindi-free puppy emerged from the chaos, and
immediately ran outside to find more bindis.
