A wild Christmas.

Thank you all for yesterdays comments. A reminder that the dogblog world remains a place of great civility and kindness.

Sophie has had a wild Christmas. Brussel Sprouts, touch rugby and a long afternoon chasing shameless pigeons who have the insolence to walk on her lawn.

Despite going to bed late the angelic duo are up and about early.

Difficult to work out what Bob's thinking this morning other than not much.

No trip to the bakers today. Instead there are rice cakes on the carpet in the hall.

A kind lady in Atlanta has sent the PONs toys. It goes without saying that Bob wants Sophie's toy and Sophie wants Bobs. Bob eventually hides both toys under a bed in a downstairs bedroom. There is much shrieking.

To cope with the loss of Bobs toy the family diva is having a  morning nap. 

There are 1355 Canadian soldiers graves in this Dutch war cemetery. Every Christmas Eve the local children place a candle in front of each one. A strangely beautiful sight.

America is rapidly becoming more like Europe :

What lovely presents for Pons. Nice to see that their fans all over the world love them. Looks like a nice day was had by all.

So very relieved to hear that Sophie's growth is just a wart, or in other words an extra bit of Sophie!
A happy boxing day to you all.

Good to read that Sophie's lump isn't anything serious. But the toys look pretty serious, and pretty realistic too.

The cemetery is lovely, as is Arlington and other military cemeteries this time of year with the wreaths on each grave.

Boxing day recovery going well at the ROF... apart from missing toys. No doubt when rediscovered, that day will become the best ever! YAM xx

That cemetery picture is very moving. Last winter, a French friend took me to the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, and I feel very strongly that all politicians should be required to walk among those stones, to read all the names.
Bob looks like, "Blimey, no croissants?"

Thank you for the cemetery photo. As a Canadian, I find it very moving that Dutch children and their community would do this on Christmas Eve.
