Ho-Ho-ho! Dear Furry and feathered Friends, I’m super excited and my back legs are crossed because I think I need a wee as I have just written my letter to Santa Paws! Dear Santa Paws, I expect you are shortly due to leave the North Pole on your sleigh, piled high with gifts with your ‘dogdeers’ ready to take you all over the world. Sorry if my letter arrives a little late but we have been on ‘lickdown’ here but now that it is over and I am dashing to finish it. Then I am going to rush down to the post office! Although Mistress will likely disagree, I think I have been a very good dog for most of the year. Yesterday I was provoked into a tantrum and refused to go out for a walk but that was all Mistress’s fault. She had decided to trim my back bum area as my fur contained lots of knots. I bravely stood still as Mistress got scissor happy. I don’t know if any of you have seen The ‘Specsavers’ advert where a man who was shearing his sheep? He had such poor sight that in error also sheared his Border Collie! The caption was something like- ‘Should have gone to Specsavers’ I look just like that dog now! I have been in hiding ever since. So Santa Paws, please do not be surprised to see the first thing on my list is a new pair of bi focal glasses for Mistress. I don’t have her prescription but any ones must be better than those she currentlywears. I also wonder if you could take a large sack of pet food with you and drop it out of your sleigh so that any stray animals throughout the world have a special treat at Christmas.

Look at my cute Christmas bow!

As I am always losing my tennis balls, losing sight of them when I literally take my ‘eye off the ball’ to stop and sniff at the hedgerow or at a another dog’s plops. I really could do with some more. Thank you. I would also love some more toys. Especially another ‘Miss Piggy’ who used to squeal when I played with her. Sadly I got carried away one day and hurled her too far and now her squeak has gone. Last but not least it would be lovely to have my own television so I can watch ‘Dogflix’ At the moment I have to watch all sorts of Human films which mostly send me to sleep! Yours sincerely Treacle Season’s Greetings to You All! Keep safe and Warm and See you in 2021
