Christmas sunshine .
Out for a long walk in the warm Christmas sunshine . The weather forecast says the maximum temperature will be a chilly seven degrees but come late morning we've discarded our jumpers and are strolling along in shirt sleeves . Wilf sauntering , nose down , through the grass verges by our side. Nothing will hurry him . The old fellow unaware of the timetable imposed by ' the fonts' organizational chart . Finally amid much laughter he's lifted , muddy pawed , into the back of the car and driven home .
Present opening time . At the pop of the champagne cork Wilf bounds up the stairs . Family sheepdog front and centre . Each parcel carefully examined by a large black nose. Wilf lives in hope that one of these packages will contain a string of freshly cooked sausages . This old boy knows how to be happy . Party animal Wilf. For one family in France their very own , small, white , canine Christmas miracle . Unexpected gifts are the best .
