This challenge runs until the end of December 2016 so if you have a little time after Christmas why not start on next year's cards and join in our little competition.
Our neighbours then telephoned us from Malaysia saying that they were cutting their holiday short and coming home earlier than expected, in the meantime they sorted out some care for him with their two doggy minders (he is walked twice a day and is very very energetic). We knew they were visiting relatives before going to the Datai in Langkawi so we told them to carry on, because we were quite happy to look after him and, as we've been to the Datai ourselves, we didn't want them to miss out - it's paradise!
To cut a long story very short - we've been walking him twice a day, throwing his ball/frisbee for him, feeding him and bedding him down for the night! It was going to be difficult for his minders so we took over his total care.
His mum and dad were really worried about him though and still wanted to come home early but by now you all know I'm totally potty so I have been sending them emails from their doggy!!! He even asked them if he was allowed to have turkey on Christmas day and is so chuffed because he can! He has two presents waiting for him from Auntie S and Uncle G so he's going to be spoiled. I think it's worked out pretty well so far and as they are returning on Boxing Day, doggy only has a few more sleeps on his own!
So that's why everything in the Casa Pass has been topsy turvy, although we've had loads of fun and giggles!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
