Merry Christmas everybody!
I hope you've all had a brilliant day!

Today, I went to see Grace and Eve at their house.
They were so excited, even though they're both teenagers!
I jumped out the car but I couldn't go into the house because their mum says I'm too hairy. What nonsense - I'm a sheltie!
Eve tried to smuggle me in but got caught.
So everyone went inside and left me and her outside.

Eve took out a present, it was for me!
I was too interested in her red jeans to open it so instead I vaguely watched her open it for me.
It was a Christmas hat!
Eve told me that she had sewn it so I must not eat it, whatever the excuse.

I tied it under my chin and got a bit confused - what was it, why was it on my head and how did it get there? I quickly remembered that it was a Santa hat, it was on my head because that's where hats go and Eve put it on my head. Phew. Panic over!

Except I tried to shake it off. I could just see a glimpse of something red hovering over my head. Woof!

Eve said "Lets go up to the pet shop!"
The adults said "No, it's closed."
I said "Can we go for a walk?"
The adults said "No it's too cold."
Eve and I said "But it's Christmas!"

Eve had to go inside and do something, and nobody wanted to stay outside with me.
So guess what?
I had to wait in the car.

I howled and howled and howled at the window.
What's worse, I could see Eve sadly gazing at me from the house because she couldn't come out!

Finally, we managed to get some quality time together again!

Then I had to go to my other human-cousin's house for Christmas dinner.
That was fun!

I spent the day wearing my santa hat around my neck!

Hope everyone out there on Planet Earth had a jolly Christmas!
Pippa :) wuf wuf
P.S. Might not hear from me for a while. All this blogging is tiring. In the meantime, what should my next word-of-the-month be?


  1. Merry Essexmas.

    We love your hat.

    We've had Collie Cookie Cutters for quite some time. The place we got purchased them from has went out of bussiness, but you can still find some in cyberpaw space. If you need any help, e-bark us.

    Essex & Sherman
