I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.  I spent a few days with my dad and Polly and I came home yesterday.

Here are some photos I took whilst away.

Polly's collar is actually black with Mistletoe on it, but it doesn't show up very well in the photos.

Then today I got the most wonderful surprise.

These were fromn my dear friends, Di, Karen, Pat and Julie off the eBay group Scrappers N Cardmakers, which I am a member of.

Well you know what's coming.....remember to hug your hounds:)

Well I can't believe this, but another friends Greyhound has been seriously ill and again it happened so suddenly.  Luna lives in Australia.  She is home from the vets, but still very unwell.

Just found out that beautiful Winnie passed away in her sleep.  I know you will all be sending heartfelt wishes to Elaine and her family.

Give your hound/s an extra big hug to let them know just how much they mean to you.

I've just read on FB that Winnie of  was taken very ill quickly and is at the vets.

Elaine said "She's been diagnosed with hepatitis and jaundice.  The infection is still raging but the vet is hopeful that she'll make a recovery.   More tests to be done in the morning to see if her white cells are fighting back as they should."

I know you will all keep Winnie in your thoughts.

Well after a very wet and windy day yesterday today was dry and much calmer. 
Been to my dad's and here's Polly in her bed there.  Even though it's right by the heater, she still likes her blanket over her.
Here's Maggie fast asleep. 

Think the flash woke her:)

I don't actually have hold of her ear, it just looks like it.  I was clicking my fingers trying to get her to look up.

Then dad came into the room and she looked at him.

Off she went to get a fuss from him.

I hope you are all having a fab weekend and not panicking about you know what that is fast approaching.
Take care and hug your hounds.

Here's Polly in her Christmas pressie.  It's a new collar with a black background and Mistletoe on it.  She hopes all the boys will want to kiss her;)

Here she's being silly and wanting her tummy tickled.

Ignoring me.

At least she has covered her modesty here:)

Trying to get me to tickle her.

Having A Snooze.

On these cold dismal days, Polly loves just to curl up in her bed and have me cover her with a blanket.  Can't say I blame her.
Hope you are having a nice weekend.  Remember to hug your hound.

Polly has been snuggling up with her stuffies. I think she blinked just as the flash went off:) Does anyone else have a Grey that has dandruff? It really shows up on Polly. I have been using a non oily moisturiser on her which seems to help, but can't get rid of it. Any suggestions?

Polly's new collar.  Got my eye on a red one with mistletoe on it for her Christmas present:)

I have updated my PurplePoppy Crafting page, if anyone would like a look.
Hope you are all have a lovely weekend.  Very cold here, but sunny and dry, which makes a pleasant change.
Remember to hug your hounds.
