As 2011 comes to a close, we want to wish all our friends, new and old, a very Happy New Year! We are having a quiet night here at home, enjoying the time with the hounds. 

The most noticeable change in my greyhounds this past year was in Maddy.  She hasn't had a panic attack for many months now and I have hope she has finally gotten over whatever "ghost" that was stalking her. 

Who knew that last May when I ventured into the blogging world, I would meet such interesting people and their dogs, make some very good friends and enjoy myself so much.  I really, really never thought anyone would be interested in what some crazy lady with 3 greyhounds in Atlantic Canada was doing, but I was pleasantly surprised!  

We have been blessed with relatively healthy hounds this past year, and my heart broke for each blogger who was not.  I hope next year brings you peace, joy and good health!

Christmas Break

Today is a day just for the hounds...After all the holiday stuff was done,  I decided the laundry and dishes and all the other things that build up could wait a few hours and we would just have some fun.  I felt a little guilty about the time they spent alone over the weekend, usually we are with them most of the time on the weekends so I'm sure they had a little cabin fever.  We went for a walk and then I let them off leash in the back yard.  Only Maddy really let loose and went for a run but I wasn't successful in getting a good photo of it... I did get a lot of pictures of nothing, because she had already ran through the frame before I snapped it.

You got Zuke's in your pocket, don't you! I'm not leaving your side.

Maddy, pretending she's a pointer.

A happy hound.

Now they are all crashed out in various places around the house, and I guess I have no excuse for not doing those chores that have to be done, except they can look so comfortable it kind of makes a nap sound good too.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and got to do fun things with those you love most!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to All!

Miss Veil here again ... I want to wish everyone in Blogville a very Merry Christmas and all the peace and joy of the season.  I am a very lucky little hound to have found my family and I know there are lots out there who aren't so lucky yet.  Let's hope 2012 brings them what  is really important - to love and be loved and the security of a happy home. 

OK, now... here is a picture on me and my big brother Beckett in our Christmas coats...

And one of me, relaxing after a hard day of relaxing...

And one of my sister, Maddy, not looking happy about wearing the hat.  She is not a fan of wearing anything on her head, including her coat hood.

 Mama said to thank all the bloggers out there who have been so nice to us this year, as we learned our way around. We all appreciate you taking time to check in with us!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa...  Miss Veil here...Just wanted to say that I hope you don't mind that we only put up two tiny trees this year since Maddy has a habit of stealing **oops, I mean, borrowing** anything that looks like a blanket, so Mama was worried about the tree skirt being tempting.  I hope this doesn't get Maddy on the naughty list, 'cause I'm hoping she shares her toys and treats with me.  But if it does...instead of taking her stuff could just add it to mine if you want. Just saying.

Merry Christmas!

Maddy **  That is not funny, Veil - we will see who shares with you now.

Thanks Declan!

We recently found out that Miss Veil and Maddy are related to the handsome and hilarious "Declan" from Declan's Dogs Blog which was exciting on its own and then Deccy surprised us with a Liebster Blog Award! If you haven't already checked out his blog, we thoroughly recommend it!  You never know what he will be up to and whatever it is, it will be entertaining!!

Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve. As with any award, there is a bit of ceremony involved. In order to accept the award, we must do the following:
1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave us the award
3. Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs

It is so hard to pick just five blogs and I tried to go with ones that might not already be on your list because if you are like me, it's always nice to find a new one.  So here are my five picks, go check them out!  
A Dog's Journey
Luna's Life in the Garden State
The Rescues
Tricks for Treats
Crafting 4 Greyhounds

Thanks again, Declan!

Where are my Ears?

Beckett: OK, now I know why Veil and Maddy disappeared when the boxes marked "XMAS" came out...

I helped supervise, so I had to wear the hat...

Mama finally started our Christmas cards, but may be experiencing techincal difficulties in the printing department. We hope to get them done tomorrow.

The Birthday Hat

Today is Maddy's 4th Birthday!  She wasn't too impressed with wearing the hat for today's Daily Dog Photo Challenge - she looks like she saying "after this there had better be CAKE!".
