Hey bro' and little Tess,

We watched your video instead of mum doing the dinner cookin' - butt we loved it and George you have such shiny eyes in your photos sometimes - that one of Tess jumpin' for joy was a ripper action shot too.

Tell your mum to have a nice break.....and your dad too - we will meet again in the new year.

THIS was the most endearing and fabulous SHOW of George and Tess's best. Jan dearest, your vision of sweetness and joy has been a huge part of my wonderful blogging experience. Whenever I see a new post of yours, I get a tingle of joy and when I come, I am always sure to bellow out a laugh. Those TEETH, those SMILES, those EYES say it all to me: JOY. WE WILL ALL MISS YOU DEAR FRIENDS, but I feel lucky to have received the sweetest, the most kindest card just yesterday. NO RETURN ADDRESS!!!!!!!! I must go find your addy, for I so want to return the kindness. MANY HUGS TO YOU ALL for a year of pure love.

Happy Christmas and New Year George, Tess and family. You've given us so much pleasure in 2011.

And well done George for avoiding having to wear antlers..... (I'm assuming Tess was bribed with extra treats!)

Ss you in the New Year.

I got your Christmas card but you didn't include an address with it. I then looked the Christmas card swap list and either I'm apparently blind and don't see it or you're not pawticipating this year.

May I have your address so I can send you a card in return?

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Patrice said...

Merry Christmas, George and Tess!

Sage said...

Tess, you sure to a great job modeling those antlers! Have a wonderful holiday and we'll see you in the new year.

Cranberry Morning said...

Good luck to you and Tess with those Christmas Stockings! If Santa goes by cuteness, you guys should make a haul!! :-) (and it doesn't hurt to try to be a bit extra good too.)

I know I'm very late to look at your Christmas pictures but I have an excuse, really! I moved from own town to another in August and was out of the blogging world from then until now but I've been keeping up with your Facebook updates the entire time. I don't know when you adopted dear, cute, little Tess but I see that she is being trained very well by her big brother! So happy you have a two dogs in your life now!
