Icicle beards! So cute.
Sx

KAZ said...

They say dogs look like their owners - do those beards remind you of anyone?

Rog said...

Dave: It's the drink I'm afraid.

Scarlett: And matching icy leggings!

Kaz: I see what you mean. I've just put the antlers on and it's frightening!

Jon Storey said...

I think we need to see a picture of you in the antlers!! (Scientific interest only of course!)

Christopher said...

Drink! You wouldn't get much out of that barrel on Lil's collar. What is she resuing? Mice?

Geoff said...

Is this Norfolk Lapland?

It's not exactly Kent.

Z said...

Don't make Lily sit down in the snow! A sure way to get cystitis and she's weak enough in the bladder area already.

Timorous Beastie said...

And where's Lardy?

Richard said...

Look, they still love you!

Rog said...

Jon: Not in the rutting season I'm afraid.

Christopher: Resuing Mice? They are normally squeeky clean.

Geoff: It looks more like last year's Lapland fiasco in Epping Forest.

Z: One learns SOO much from one's comment box!


Timorous: Behind the camera holding biscuits of course!

Richard: I suspect it's the biscuits!

one of them looks suspiciously like Dave but I have it on good authority (QI) that only lady reindeer have antlers at this time of year. What aren't you telling us?

Rog said...

Ziggi: These are long strap-on Antlers. Like Dave's suitcases!

Macy said...

You would need a heart made of STONE not to give Lily a mince pie...

Roses said...

Lily's expression is priceless. Such resignation.

She deserves more than a mince pie.

Oz on the other hand, obviously likes dressing up. Does that mean you share house with a cross-dresser? That you encourage this is of concern.

My word verification: tranea.

Elizabeth said...

Oh, don't they look ador... I mean, miserable! Especially poor Lillster. (LMAO)

Just so you know, Rog (and of course you're dying to know, I know ;), my own four-legged companion, aptly named Agamemnon, strongly disapproves of such shenanigans like dressing dogs for Christmas -- or any other human occasion.

Which reminds me to dig up his pictures from last year, ho ho ho!

Rog said...

Macy: Nature has given Lil a good dose of "Cute" gene to counter the exasperation with her other traits!

Roses: I have caught Oz watching Eddie Izzard Videos. He was cross though...

Elizabeth: Mardy, Grumpy and Aggy! They would make a fine trio - perhaps they could tour as a Vaudville act?

Jon Storey said...

I completely forgot about the rutting season, could have been nasty!!
