Merry Christmas To You (And Introducing The Newest Member In Our Family!)

Melbourne Town Hall Christmas 2013

Hello folks and merry Christmas! Hope you’re having an awesome day so far. This holiday season is one heck of a busy one for me this time. Tim’s family will be visiting us from Malaysia and Sydney this year and there on top of that, there’s going to be days of non-stop festivities, which means we’ll also most likely be in a food coma very soon.

As it’s the holiday season, I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a bit just to enjoy my time with family and friends as we all should (yes, even if there’s that pervy uncle you want to avoid, just like Bridget Jones!). It’s a great time for me to also reflect on the year that is about to come to an end. What an incredible one this has been. But hey, more on that later.

Just before I leave, I’d like to introduce you to the newest addition to our family. You can say we’ve been waiting for her for years. Please say hello to Janey. 🙂

Janey the Lady

She’s approximately 6 years old and we adopted her from the RSPCA less than a week ago. She’s had a rough couple of weeks with 2 surgeries, one to remove a mammary tumour (thankfully, it was benign) and the other to desex her so she’s going to need a lot of TLC from us. She’s a very shy and timid girl but absolutely adores lots of tummy rubs and walks. Tim and I have been wanting to have a dog of our own for years now but decided to only get it now when we know we can afford to give her the best we can. According to the RSPCA, she’s a terrier mix but I believe there must be some Corgi in her. Looks at that smile, eh?

She truly is the best Christmas present to the both of us. 🙂

So from Tim, Janey and I, here’s wishing you a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!

      Happy holidays Xin! Was the brownie an adult dog? Sometimes they’re already house-trained so will be quite well behaved. Janey doesn’t potty indoors, doesn’t chew or mess up things. I think it’s because she’s already 6yo. She just leaves a great trail of hair 😛

    Merry Christmas Tine! Janey is adorable, she does look like she has some of corgi-ness in her.

      Right? That’s what I thought! RSPCA said terrier cross. I said corgi! 😛

    Oh Tine, I am so glad you adopted instead of bought a dog. Janey is absolutely gorgeous and I know you will have the best time with her. Hope she feels better and settles in soon! My rescue was so scared the first few days (kept hiding under our dining table, poor thing) but now she owns the whole house, haha!

    Merry Christmas 🙂

      Thanks Renee. It was always my intention to adopt as my family has always done so in the past. Your baby is just gorgeous. I remembered pictures of her when you first brought her home. She’s the queen of the house now, I’m sure 😉

      Happy new year lovely. xx
