Bill Update

He's becoming a semi-regular visitor.

As we have the extension part of the house almost finished, we started moving furniture into it. The baseboards around the rooms have yet to be put in, as well as the internal doors, but after three years, this is close enough for us!

We moved the piano into the orangerie last night. The blankets that we used to protect the piano were by one of the French doors. Polly slept there last night. Guess who has taken them over this morning?
You can see that we've even decorated Polly for Christmas. She's got a bonny red ribbon on her collar. Bill didn't even mention it when he came over this morning. I've tried to tell Polly that the reason he didn't mention it is that he's all but blind.
In the above photo it almost looks like Polly is saying, "Mum, he's in my spot and won't move!"

Will Bill be round for his Christmas dinner?

I think Bill knows where all the good quality treatment will be. Wish him and Polly and your whole family a warm and merry Christmas from us.

That last picture is just great. We are now going to test the limits of Polly's patience with Bill. Everything is fine until he takes her spot on the blankets.

Loved the last photo, especially. They're both so cute, espcially Polly in her red ribbon.

LOL. Adorable!

You're like the dog whisperer. Could you tell me what my dogs are thinking? I have a feeling we're just not connecting.

We love dear old Bill. He's been here every morning for the past couple of days. If he finds the blankets unoccupied, then he's right there and won't let Polly sleep on them with him.

Polly's so good natured though. She just lets him be.
