A Christmas break

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas or a Happy Chanukah and are looking forward to the New Year!

We’ve been a little quiet here on the blog. It’s been nice to take a break, enjoy family and friends, hibernate from the below zero windchill and be completely lazy!

We received so many beautiful cards from friends (this year there were more dogs on our Christmas card tree than people) and we loved looking at all of them. We were in a couple of Christmas card exchanges which certainly added to the joy and we look forward to following the antics of many new friends this year.IMG_5034This year, our Christmas card photo shoot was a little easier despite adding an enthusiastic, very large puppy to the mix. I had my trusty assistant who helped with keeping their attention, positioning and hats.  Annie is doing a much better job at staying, or she is just more able to tune out my crazy ideas, and Maisie and Winn were terrific!

We managed to get a pretty good shot with all three of them and this is the one we chose for our card.IMG_6790I couldn’t resist these close-ups of each of them.

Next week, we will start to think about getting back to our normal routines which include training, swim lessons, pampering Annie, and sneaking Maisie away for one on one time. Winn and I have several big events planned in January and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.  (I don’t want to jinx anything so details will be coming).

Most importantly, we are really looking forward to bringing in the New Year. This year had a lot of ups and downs and I am hoping for a much more even keel 2018!
