Tis the season ...

We are happy this Christmas as both our human brothers - and Kerryn - are staying a few nights with us. Here we are with our Christmas bandanas from Renate.
We got left behind on Christmas Eve when they went to Charlie and Rupert's humans' house for a magical Christmas Eve dinner. Here is the table decorated by Clare - with Anna, Clare, Pippa, Wendy and Jane.  
Then on Christmas Day we opened a few presents ...
Biltong somewhere in there ...
"I've got it!"
The Alph got a doormat.
Simon got a hat. Phil got a rude card from Simon.
And Kerryn got some handmade soap from Jane. Note our antlers and stocking from Laddie's sister, Maggie May, and Kirby hanging up on the mantelpiece.
Then they went to visit the spaniels but we got left behind again because Arabella was sick and the Lad is too much of a pest for her to bear. I had to stay behind as well which was a bit rough. Here is Arti showing Alice his stained glass card, and Petrus.
Aiden the Voice, and Thomas the Cool waiting for me - and I never came. Sorry guys - blame the PEST.
A stunning day.
Lunch on the balcony - with Petrus, Simon and Anna.
When they came home, we went for an apologetic walk in the Constantia Greenbelt. Not too shabby.
Then on the 26th, we had our usual Boxing Day jamboree, and guess who came? None other than JOSIE, my Maltese friend who doesn't believe she is a dog. Lucy and Richard came too and bought Lad a chew toy to stop him bugging me so much.
Kate and Greg also came. Cheers chaps!
Sue came too but she didn't bring Honey as Honey isn't really up to big parties. Here is Sue with Helen, Daleen, Adrian and Megan.
Lydia and Jan came with their boys, and Leah, and Graham came too. It was quite a hot day, and eventually I had to retire to the bathroom for some peace and coolth.
 There was some pool volleyball - with Xander and David, who is Paula-from-Germany's human brother.
And lots of energetic volleyball - Phil and Simon vs Xander (in the air) and David (on the ground). It was quite a day!
*PS Arabella is better now.
