Yesterday, everyone was celebrating the end of 2013 and making new year resolutions to welcome 2014. The KNIGHTs household was very calm and quiet. We are still grieving the loss of our beloved Seagull. All I did was hugging my dogs, all of them, we snuggled up onto the big couch, all dogs were lay close next to me and Colin in front of the fire. I have to say, Sing and Sonic were particularly close, they would not leave my side at all. To those who knows Sonic well, he isn't a friendly dog, he likes to have his own space and being independent but since we buried Seagull, he glue to me all the time. He's the only one that have found Seagull's grave in the garden (surprisingly, none of the others find it). Sonic is a very sentimental dog, also very sensitive, he doesn't like any disturbance noises from the other dogs (such as dog whinning or whinging), if any of the others made such a noise, he will come and find me and "tell" me about it. He is a very special dog, just like his daddy Sing.

I wish to say I would like to do this, do that in the New Year, make some resolutions but my mind is absolute blank at the moment, I can't think of what I want to say or what I want to do. I haven't done much lately apart from walking the dogs and hugging the dogs. Training is totally out of the window at the moment. 

Maybe I should say I would like to try to qualify Sonic for Crufts, Olympia and UKA Final; also tryout for International events? I know one thing for sure, we will try very hard to become a better Team :)

Also, I am looking forward to breed my first bi colour litter in 2014 :)

Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2014 is a successful and healthy year you all. 

The dog of my heart! At nearly 12, he is still going strong!

I'm glad you have all your dogs around you to provide you with some comfort.

I hope good things await you in 2014.

Happy New Year to you, Colin and the shelties! It seems you're going to have a busy but fun 2014!

The dogs are so special, aren't they?

They would've have sensed you were upset and stayed even closer - amazing how much Sheltie hugs helps to comfort you x Sounds nice all snuggled up together. Seagull will be forever in your heart x Pawsx all your hopes and dreams in the Agility World come true :)

I'm not looking forward to this year. I'm turning 50 this year, not for a while, but I don't want to be 50. Miley will be 7. Time is going to fast. I wish it would slow down. I glad you are able to spend quality time with your dogs.

Happy New Year to you all!! I'm so so sorry to hear about Seagull, he was such a handsome and good doggy and we'll miss him too. That must have been a sad, but lovely snuggle.
Would love to see another litter!
Pippa :)
