I've got work to do.

Wilf was able to spend his Christmas morning in a Polish Lowland Sheepdogs natural habitat. The kitchen. He ventured out into the garden for a half hearted game of touch rugby around eleven but quickly scurried back inside. The smell of the roasting turkey simply too much to ignore. As he climbed the stairs to the terrace he turned and gave us a wistful look that seemed to say " Sorry guys. I've got work to do . You go and enjoy yourselves ".

Sadly for Wilf no one dropped the turkey or the Christmas pudding. However, mystery surrounds a plate of caviar and blinis that had foolishly been left unattended on the drawing room floor for all of five seconds. Had another gannet eaten them or was that a guilty smile on Wilfs face ? All but the victim gave him the benefit of the doubt.

'The font' got an oil free chip fryer as a gift. I thought this wasn't such a bad choice . It could have been worse. 'The font' seemed less convinced .


  1. An oil free fryer huh? Well nothing says love like strips of potatoes! :)

  2. No turkey or Christmas pudding, but may be some caviar and blinis... not so bad sweet Wilf !
    Enjoy this Sunday beloved boy, take care to the cold weather.
    Cuddles and bisous to you Wilfee.

  3. mmmm....Mongoose, that's VERY romantic! For a creative person, you didn't do too badly.
    Wishing you a happy Christmas,
    Sending lotsaluv to you all

  4. We are sure there was no need for Wilf to wait for food to fall to the floor. With your gentle and kind heart, we are sure Wilf had a plate specially prepared for him and served to him with his loved ones at his side.
    And we'd go so far as to say that Santa was probably quite good to "the font".
    And to you?

  5. Sounds to me like the 'gannets' thought long and hard about that present.

  6. sounds like a perfectly wonderful day! i'm still laughing....:)

  7. Sounds like a decent score, Wilf. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

  8. Caviar for Wilf! Excellent.

    It sounds like a good day was had by all. An oil-free chip fryer sounds like an oxymoron!

  9. Uuuumm, You're one brave man to give your wife a kitchen appliance for Christmas - lol. Pleased you're still around to tell the tale.
    ;-) Sue x x

  10. Caviar? Wilf, this is unrefutable proof that you have the best palate of any dog in the world!

    You gave the font an appliance for Christmas? Ummm, I think you should watch this...

  11. Way to go Wilf! Just exactly how does and "oil free" fryer work? ;)
    Hope your day was a happy one!

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  12. Caviar and blinis fur you, Wilf? Oh how delectible a surprise St. Nick left you - yumzers! We'd love to know what you put in the "fryer" to make pommes frites?
    Belated Joyeux Noel!

  13. Your Christmas post was beautiful...and Wilf's snowy face was precious! How responsible of Wilf to think of "work" before play on Christmas day...good job Wilfy!

    Best with the new oil free 'toy', blessings to you all...and big hugs to Wilfy!
    xo J~

  14. Appliances are maligned as presents. Jedi's pending adopter only wanted a good rug shampoo machine for Christmas - probably because Jed is very large and not house trained plus she needs to keep the "parsonage" up to snuff for visitors on top of working full time. Caviar - you are ready for the New Year, Wilf - and I am so glad to be able to anticipate your being with us then and now.

  15. Frietjes ZONDER olie!! What happened to nice unhealthy frietjes MET olie!! hahahaha.You must give us an update when the font tries this out and what Wilf thinks of this :-)

  16. Interesting choice of gifts, but to each his own!! And Wilf got the best one of all - caviar!!

  17. An oil free fryer? Interesting. So what do you fry your food in then? Just curious.

  18. not even a morsel of turkey for Wilf?
