I felt that I had to include a photo of Otto with his girlfriend, Abbie. They meet in the pub every Friday night and spend a few happy hours together. Abbie's Mum & I think that they would have had lovely puppies if various operations hadn't got in the way. On the evening that this photo was taken Abbie was very much in her Mum & Dad's bad books. She is usually an angelic girl, but had been overwhelmed with excitement when the Christmas Tree had been put up, and had trashed it with gusto, breaking the lovely antique glass ornaments in the process. leaving a scene of utter devastation. Luckily she is still loved!
Today has been a busy day - I'm sure it has been for everyone else too, Cleaning has been on the agenda today, and as well as all the "normal" hoovering, dusting and polishing, unfortunately Otto has been a bit ill, so poor Dick has had that to deal with that too, he looks good with a mop. As you can see from the photo, Otto is still feeling a bit sorry for himself.
The online shop will remain open over the Christmas period, and I will continue to make more stock to replace all of the sold items. Thank you all for your support during my first "online" year.
Anyway, I'd better leave this and go and give Dick a hand. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
