What have we done?

 The KNIGHTs Sheltie boyz (Shelridge relations) wrap up in tinsels, Christmas 2011

I am glad Christmas is over for another year. That was no celebration here on Christmas eve, all quiet and peaceful. I managed to take a few photos of the shelties wrap up in tinsels. I wasn't really in the mood but I thought this is Sonic and Scara's first Christmas and Colin insist I should take a picture of them for the Album ... so here we go!

two pups, Scara (11 months) & Sonic (9 months), first Christmas 2011

and here is Little Miss Sipzie, Christmas 2011

We got to watch a bit of TV with all the shelties curl up against us. We had a good lie-in on Christmas morning until Saturn decided he wants his breakfast, so we woke up, fed the dogs, open the presents, they are mainly for the spoilt shelties :D, then we went to Brighton to my in-law for the day. 

 Sing loves to unwrapped the presents
 Saturn loves his new toy ...
 ... tearing the label of the toy! Can you see the label in his mouth?
why all dogs like the same toy when they have their own?

here is The KNIGHTs Family ... seven shelties + one whippet + a child (the others were hiding!!)

On Boxing Day, we decided we are going for a long walk! We walked from home to Beddington Park, it took us 5 hours round trip but it was very enjoyable and good fun. We haven't been for a long walk this year, so this was really good. We took my last Christmast present DoggyRide with us. That is for Sing. Poor Sing's paw is not coping well for a long walk like that. I normally walk them for about 1.5 hours. Sing is a tough dog, he will walk and walk and walk but that break my heart when I see him limping after he is quiet down. Keeping Sing in the DoggyRide is torture. He wanted to lead the pack so much and he hates to be confined in the buggy. We let him walk all the way there but insist to zip him up in the buggy on the way home. 

Thank God the weather was dry and MILD but very cloudy! Not a good day for picture.

You have very patient and good dogs for letting you wrap them in tinsel like that! The pictures are very good!

A quiet Christmas is a good thing - hope you did enjoy it.

Just like Diana, I'm curious whether you'd got any pressies???

Your shelties are the best models all the time. They are so patient and know how to please their mama : )
