Christmas day was peaceful and pleasant. The rain stopped long enough for Lucy and I to go for an hour long walk around town. I made her dress for the occasion :
Aarggh - you expect me to wear this????
I'll never be able to show my face around town again!She was such a good sport, wearing her reindeer antlers all over town. She certainly got lots of comments from the other people we met! And when we got home, she was rewarded with a bully stick in her crate while I took the other two for a walk:
Well, that certainly made it all worthwhile!
It was starting to rain by the time I took Charley and Sadie out, so we mostly just wandered down by the seawalk watching the ducks and gulls and people. These cats were hanging about the empty house near the start of the seawalk:

Boxing Day, some visitors came to meet Lucy, who took a particular liking to the little girl and gave her a very thorough face and ear wash! Lucy is such a very good dog with everyone, two legged and four legged. Today she spent a few hours with Cheryl, owner of U-Dog dog care services, as she is going to have a sleep-over there later this week while I dash over to the mainland for a day. Cheryl commented on how nicely she got along with all the other dogs even though she was nervous being in a new place. Whether it was the nervous energy or the fresh air, Lucy was a tired puppy when she got home:
Lucy loves to ride in the car now, so tomorrow she is coming up island with me while I do a homecheck. Then Wednesday I'm off to the mainland, and on the weekend my daughter will likely come for a visit (barring ice and snow on the roads).
Hopefully sometime late Thursday or Friday I shall get that post about crates up!
I'll end with this photo, which I took just to make Big Sis drool - our family's traditional Christmas dessert, an English trifle. This year I soaked the bottom sponge cake layer in Cointreau and used mandarins for the fruit instead of strawberry - it was yummy (and yes, I ate the whole thing myself over the last two days!).
Drool, Big Sis, drool!
