My human assistant has been very busy and hasn't put enough time aside for me! I have been wanting to tell you about the best Christmas eve - ever! As you know, I accepted Jake's invitation to go on a 'stroll' on Christmas eve. I was really nervous - I have never been out with anyone and I wasn't sure what to say, or do, or wear! But D said that I had to be myself - and just enjoy the day.
Even though he had to travel a long distance - he was on time. It was Christmas Eve and the door bell rang and there he was!!!
The Rose was for me! Before letting us go - my family wanted to meet him and get to know him. So we went for a walk in the woods near out house, I was nervous - but he is so sweet and kind - that I relaxed - we had a snowball fight - and he let me win!
My family thought he was a true gentledog - they gave me some pocket money (poor Jake lost his in a terrible Poker game with some dubious dogs). So we went up west - he arranged a carriage to bring us - he wanted us to really enjoy the sights.
Jake had his camera too - so he will put more photos on his blog when he gets a chance - but we saw lots of London - we walked along the River and went into Hyde Park and came across the German Christmas Markets
Well, we could both smell the beer and sausages - and even though I am sure Miss Enid would not recommend a sausage feast on a first date - well, we couldn't resist! After all that german beer and sausage - we needed to walk some more - so we walked along the River and on the Southbank - and all too soon Jake had to go home - I wanted the night to go on forever...
He is the kindest, most gentle dog I have ever known - he made me feel really relaxed and I could be myself...before he left I stole a quick good bye kiss...I think he didn't mind....
He had a safe trip back to Aunt Peggy's - he is waiting for his family to come back and then he will post more on his blog too!
We would like to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas (we didn't get a chance to drop by all the blogs before the 25th!)
Lots of licks
