Christmas Comes Early

Boy oh boy, I am so excited. Christmas is early this year. Despite it still being November, I've been receiving e-Christmas cards left, right and centre from my Dogs with Blogs pals (some whom I don't even know). And that's really the spirit of Christmas - sharing joy with loved ones and strangers. Thank you so much!

Mine is coming...soon...I promise...before Christmas. So, that gives me exactly 26 days to get it out. The first batch of Christmas photos mum took were duds. Hah...hah...I recall reading about the same experience in some of your blogs. Who said dog photography was easy??? So, she's going to attempt it again this weekend. She may even get dad to do the honours. He's the camera geek! If the weekend pics turn out well, I should be able to get my card out next week. Yay!

A "Slow" Confession

I am feeling sheepish at the moment. After all my posts protesting that beagles are not slow dogs in the realm of "intelligence", I have to make a "slow" confession...I have been slow in sharing the awards that Georgeous George and Happy have so kindly bestowed on me 2 months ago (yes, you read it right...2 whole months ago). I am so sorry George and Happy. I really do appreciate the honour. Of course, I could blame mum for it. She's been away on a business trip for a few weeks. Before that, we were preoccupied with the "slow" beagle issue. But I won't offer any excuses. Instead, I'm going to rectify it right now.
