The Jet-set Puppy turns three

Three years ago on the 24th December, Rosie (AKA The Jet-set Puppy) arrived in this world with a lot of excess energy. She hasn’t stopped moving since. If you missed the original series about how we came to adopt her, see The Jet-Set Puppy series:

Happy Holidays to everybody! I hope that this weekend is a happy and peaceful one for you and your loved ones. Thank you for your support over the last year!

      Thank you! The same to you and Jim. It’s been very hot here this week, so it’s not feeling very “Christmas-y” here at all. I’m busy sorting out Willie’s photos from his Australia trip, so look out for future “Postcards from Australia” posts – there are some lovely shots of Brisbane.

      Thank you – best wishes to you too! We’re going to have a very quiet and peaceful day. Rosie loves special occassions like Christmas – it’s about the only time that I roast meat in the oven. 😉

      I think this has been a tough year for a lot of people. I hope that the year ahead is a better one for you.

      Thanks for the holiday wishes. We don’t celebrate Christmas in the traditional way either. For us it’s usually a very quiet day, just relaxing and reflecting.
