Happy New Year to all of you and to your families!
May 2011 bring you health, happiness, money, kibbles and bones! 😉
You know, my new year’s eves are normally spent at home, with my humans, as they do not like the idea to leave me alone, scared of all the fireworks of every new year’s eve. Not that I am particularly scared, but still, they like to spend it at home.
We would have “chili con carne” (don’t ask my why, because none of us is mexican) and beer and tortillas. Most of my human’s friends already know this, so they either accept to come over and stay with us, having chili as well, or they have to invite me also ;)!!!
This year my humans also had different invitations, but all were not including me… they had been invited in a very nice place on the mountains, to have dinner in a fancy restaurant… but they said no, thank you…. Till …. ta dah…. best invitation of all…. Maura invited us over to her training center for a dog’s friendly new year’s eve party!!!!
Remember Maura? She is the owner of my Mum, Gaia, and she is also a fantastic dog trainer. Well, she invited us over to spend a New Year’s eve with her, Daniela, their dogs (Birke, Flu, Oki), Davide and Simona with their dogs (Nike & Ziva), with Nuvola (a dog staying for a week while humans are on holiday), me (Lucille) and my humans!!!!
Let me introduce my friends:
And this is the great location where our party took place: sorry if the pictures are a bit blurry but our camera is not the best one for night pictures and my human is not the best photographer either!
For dinner humans prepared a BBQ (this is not usual New Year’s Eve food in Italy…):
You cannot believe it, but normally men deal with the BBQ… Well this time it was Maura and my human at the cooking!!!! Men were inside !!! Don’t know if you can see but this is me and Mario having starters while they are working eh eh eh!!!
So I had to tell him to stay at his place… I am promised to Homer!!!
Ziva, I see you surrendered…. You know, being older and wiser I need to let you know that there is a very important motto you need to learn “never give up, never surrender”, sooner or later something will fall from the table… I hope 🙂
eh eh eh, had my share, now I can relax too!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
