    We just published a children's book, that could be a fun gift for a little one who Loves Labs!

    The Adventures of Tango Hombre and Grace O'Malley
    by Bette Korber, photos by James Theiler
    Available at Amazon.

    Its tail wagging Tale of Two Puppies, all about when Tango's little sister moves in. A great gift of a little one when a new baby is about to join the family.

    Last year I got 2 lovely felt decorations, one for Lilly and one for Georgie from a Facebook Friend (Buggs' Felt Friends)

    Here are a selection of Buggs' dog Christmas decorations available for this year, made to order. They range between £6 and £8 plus £1.50 postage, and they are happy to consider any requests .

    I would highly recommend them!

    I made a calender up with photo's of family and Nevis, a different theme for each month, halloween, Christmas etc It was great fun you can put comments, titles or sayings.. not expensive and it looked really good. Everyone loved it and it lasted all year lol.. Might do one this year with Baxter's photos. I used Vistaprint but i think there are different places that do it. They also do hard back books, I made one up as a keepsake of all of Nevis's photos :eek: Takes a little time but well worth it.

    Also heard there is a fab book just out for Labrador lovers.. it would make a great Christmas pressie :rolleyes: think Amazon has it :p

    I was wondering which calendar Boogie . When we were up in Forfar they only had the Scottish version.

    ​When is heidrun bringing out her Christmas card selection though?

    I would be happy to create a forum calendar if there are some mods who would help with selecting photos??

    Hi Naya, I think that's a lovely idea - although it would have to be the owners of the photos that agreed to let you use the photos, rather than the forum, I think. And you'd need to be sure enough people would want one to cover your costs. I'd buy one for sure though! :)

    Love it!! The perfect colour too :) I think that Dexter looks pretty pleased (and Obi notes that he's done a nice job with his eye makeup).
