Humans popped into boglin and lupercal Christmas Movie Magic, no Movies just the Magic bit. This was via meeting up with balsall_heathan in the Old Mo whilst he was shouting at Blackburn Rovers for being a bunch of barking woofers. Lovely to see abbie again, after dog alone knows how many years - but worked out that we still had (the real, capital and canine) Hatty and she hasn't met Java. So possibly 6 years. Anyway, abbie hasn't aged a day and looked radiant.
On our humans return, our snooters were stuck firmly to our humans clothes. After several minutes of sniffing, we doglets concluded our humans have given in to the Dog Child Kato pressure and got her a pet rat for Chrimbo - as they were absolutely minging of ratlets. Kato swears she will look after it, take it for walks every day and use her own pocket money to pay for any vet bills.
