Xmas puppies

Our little Nora likes to sleep on the small sofa in Will's Office. Like all Dachshunds she will wrap herself up into a blanket and snooze away. When bedtime comes she always looks at us with imploring eyes, please can I sleep here tonight. But she knows, clever girl, that a cookie waits for her if she goes to her kennel for the night. Our Nicky is more practical, come 10 pm he knows according to his clock that it is time for bed and will insist on a cookie as is due before bedding down in his kennel. But he is not patient, you better be quick about it, giving you a fierce look.

 She always has one eye open to watch us, in case a big Boar would come into the room. Hunting dogs cannot sleep with both eyes closed, she seems to tell us.

Here is our little Nicky, a funny little dog, he is scared of most things, he is a sensitive soul.

  1. I heard on the radio just yesterday that there is apparently over 100 variations of pointsettias. Who knew?

  2. Indeed who knew. That is incredible, I wish we could see some of them instead of the old red ones.

  3. Beautiful dogs, so very sweet. Why do they have to sleep in a kennel?

    1. Well since they were 7 weeks old they have slept in their kennel, it is their little home with blankets etc... Also because in the day time if we are away for safety it is better for them. I also do not trust Nicky, when he gets bored he gets destructive, if we are not around it could be a disaster.
