On the first day of the New Year we took my pups, Bella and Bertha, with us to visit friends in Aix (including Bella's beau). A truly lovely way of bringing in 2013.
My dogs are both my security and companionship, and have stood by me for the last 8 years. I wouldn't be living where I am now if it weren't for them ... they've travelled with me from Malaysia to Australia and then all the way to France. Here's a little vignette of snaps ...

Bertha's special friend the grey donkey
Even Bella likes to give the donkey a kiss
Toby the cat joins us for our walks
And our New Year walk in Aix ... remember that street?!
Bella is the solid, cheeky black one and Bella the delicate, protective brown one, and they have fans and friends all around the world -- as does Toby the cat, who joins us on our walks and bullies them with disdain ... until he wants loving attention. All three of them wish everyone a tail-waggingly good New Year! Cheers.
