A very Merry Christmas to you TT and your adorable boys :o)

11 Dec, 2014

 

Brilliant !

11 Dec, 2014

 

Hello Sandra ..I see you're already back in usual routine. Merry Christmas.

Thanks Val ..
I heard you singing along over there in Leics !
Very tuneful voice :o))) x

Hi Neena ..
thanks, I could hear every word of you from Wales ...
.. that must have been extra loud singing from you...
... or did you have help from adorable Zander ? ;o) xxx

Hello Diane .. Thanks for visiting ..
I'm pleased you enjoyed the songs :o))

11 Dec, 2014

 

Thank you Paul ... I enjoy making the blogs. :o) x

Kind words, Derek ... thanks, Merry Christmas ..and all the best for 2015 ..

yes, I had fun working out photos to fit words, and sometimes words to fit photos ! The biggest challenges were the swans which kept disappearing under the bridge ... and I nearly fell in the river ...Lol.
... and Eight Spades for Digging ... which turned out much better than I had hoped !

11 Dec, 2014

 

Thanks for the morning smile Terra
So creative and well choreographed piece. I am in love with your dogs. They are such great characters. And seems that they do not mind posing.
Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best in the New year. XXX

11 Dec, 2014

 

Hello Klahanie ..
My dogs absolutely love posing for the photo-shoots ... it seems they try to rival each other as to who can 'act out the rôle' in the best way ... Lol.
Merry Christmas and happy 2015 to you. xxx

11 Dec, 2014

 

I don't think your pals are acting TT. They are reacting to your love for them and you extend that warm feeling to us through your blogs. You have a great many talents and your sharing with us is an inspiration. Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year to you and yours.

11 Dec, 2014

 

You are astonishing TT! You make up the most wonderful blogs, so full of imagination! :-)) I really enjoyed your blog & it's wonderful, as always, to see how the dogs participate with you!

I loved the spades & the one with Truffle towards the end with his three teddies! The robin in the very last photo is very good - I found myself wondering how it would end & the robin was an inspiration!

Rubi & Bobby were impressed at Crocus' friends! They've never seen another bird before!

Added to favourites!

Have a wonderful Christmas & a great New Year 2015. :-))

11 Dec, 2014

 

Brilliant blog, TT, so cheerful. Great photos too. Happy Christmas to you and your 'gang' - hope you are have a wonderful time :)

11 Dec, 2014

 

Singing along merrily here Terra and yes like the robin I was in full throttle, bet his sounded more musical though, you have excelled yourself this year, fantastic photo's and great new verses, I absolutely loved it and its going in my favs as well..
Conker, Truffle and Crocus you have done really well, I bet Santa has lots of special treats for you...
Merry Christmas Terra and Best Wishes for 2015...xx

11 Dec, 2014

 

:o)

12 Dec, 2014

 

Are you sure it was me you were listening to? First time any one has said my voice is tuneful !!! Pam lives in Leics, sure you're not confusing me with her? Ha ha :-)))) Merry Christmas to you and yours, and thank you for the nice comment x

12 Dec, 2014

 

One old man singing and two dogs HOWLING! You have brought the Christmas Spirit and Joy into my home. Thank you for your precious gift of happiness. Merry Christmas to All!!! :)

12 Dec, 2014

 

Hi Scotsgran ..
kind words ... we have great fun with our tricks routines and photo shoots, and I like making the blogs ... and even better when GoYers show that they enjoy reading them. :o)

Thanks Balcony ...
the spades picture is one of my favourites ... the dogs were ultra-keen to be photographed with their spades. Currently I have that photo as my desktop background on my laptop !
Crocus budgie says hi to Rubi and Bobby. Thanks for adding to favourites ... I always appreciate your visits to my blogs and photos.

Thank you, Gee ...
We are in party mood here :o)

Hello Val .. that was definitely your melodic voice singing away ... maybe you'd swallowed a few extra liqueur chocs. to help get yourself in tune ?? ha ha .. ;o) x

Thank you, Sue, and kind of you to add this blog to your favourites ... Conker, Truffle and Crocus send hugs to you and your pets. Enjoy the festivities ! :o) xx

Hi Loosestrife2 ...
'One old man singing, and two dogs howling' ... sounds like another good verse for my song !

I very much appreciate your well-written comments and I hope you and your dogs have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year...

... and, I'm trying to think of how to shorten the name Loosestrife2 to a more manageable length .. shall I just call you Strife ? How does that sound ? :o)

12 Dec, 2014

 

Better than Loos Terra !
Although it could have a different meaning in the States .........

the crows and magpies were joining in the singing so it was loud but a bit growly......

12 Dec, 2014

 

Loo? LOL! No matter where I traveled abroad I always made sure that I knew how to ask where THAT was in the native language of the country I was visiting. Terra, Strife will do just fine:)

12 Dec, 2014

 

That was a very wonderful song , Yes, that's a well known Christmas song , catchy and fantastic song :-))

Happy Holiday GOYERS, xxxxx :-)))

Merry Christmas Terra, Conker, Truffles, n' Crocus :-)))
xxxxxxoooooxxxxx

13 Dec, 2014

 

Maybe a drop of liqueur, but not in chocs, Terra!!

13 Dec, 2014

 

Hello Pam ... Loo ? !!!
... okay, we'll settle for 'Strife' ...
sounds ideal to me .. :o))

Hi Junna ..
I'm glad you know this Christmas tune so you can sing along ...
Happy Christmas and special hugs from Terra, Conker, Truffle and Crocus. :o))) xxx

13 Dec, 2014

 

Hi Val .. Today in the Co-op I had to decide between a box of liqueur chocolates or a special offer of three little hacksaws for the price of 2 ... the hacksaws won !!

13 Dec, 2014

 

A HACKSAW? That's one part vodka, one part orange juice and two parts orange soda.

13 Dec, 2014

 

LOL Strife ... the three hacksaws I bought were the non-alcoholic type !

Sometimes I use hacksaws when I'm customising children's toys such as prams and mowers from charity shops ... to make them suitable for my dogs' tricks ... we have great fun ! :o)

13 Dec, 2014

 

Oh TT you are clever! What a super Blog. Happy Christmas to you and those you hold dear. I hope 2015 turns out to be the best of years for you.
