Happy New Year. Hope you've all had a great Christmas and New Year. Ours has been good. Firstly we have our New Years Resolution to blog more - we've been very bad in 2012 at keeping up to date. We got lots of lovely presents for Christmas and have been on lots of long muddy walks. We don't mind mud, in fact we quite like splodging through it. The getting cleaned off afterwards is a bit of a pain but its worth it. Since the house was painted we now have to wait outside the front door whilst mum cleans and dries us off. Sometimes she seems to take forever getting herself organised whilst we sit patiently outside. Today we met up with our friend Bobby - he's a border terrier like us too. The other day we met up with Jenny and Harry - they are poodles and we hadn't met them before, but we all got on great and I think we'll see a lot more of them in 2013.
Mum is still quite into her get fit mode, which is quite good for us. We hadn't been out jogging for a while, but have been doing 3 to 4 mile 'power walks'. However on Christmas day morning we went for a jog and we are just back from doing 4miles, so hopefully that will continue as we love going jogging. In October mum did the Aviemore 10k and raised £130 for Pets As Therapy - as her training partners Phin and I feel that even though we weren't able to do the actual run we helped her get there. This year she's going to do the half marathon, so we'll have to help out with the training again.
Mum has put together a training plan for me and Rab for this coming year which we are looking forward to - I mean who wouldn't look forward to earning hot dogs, chicken and other tasty treats? So, watch this space and we'll tell you about all the new things that we learn.
