It's nearly Christmas!
Wiggle plans on relaxing, feasting on tasty snacks and taking things easy. He and Sofy have gifts to open and will have their share of turkey dinner.
Thank you for your continued support over the last year and we wish all of our friends and followers a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Wendy, Wiggle & Sofy xx

We have Lilly staying with us for Christmas while her family are away so Sofy is happy to have her friend here:
This morning we all went up to the Downs. Wiggle was bemused with Sofy's strange expression:

Wiggle trundled around for a while but went back on lead to stop him overdoing things:

Wiggle has taken delivery of his 2016 fundraising calendar and take some time to admire his handsome cover photo.
Over the years that we have been auctioning Wiggle calendars we have raised over £500 for Wiggle's charity, LRSE&C who have taken care of his medical needs since June 2008.
There's still time to bid - full details HERE

Another week of horrid wet and windy weather, which Wiggle does not like. I often look back on previous years and I when I look back on this day 7 years ago, Wiggle was very happy with the frosty, sunny day:
Back then, we hadn't met Sofy but we did have the distinguished Sir H in our lives:
Now Wiggle is older his lifestyle has changed and the time he moves the fastest is when he goes swimming! He still enjoys going for short walks, although he prefers dry weather to rain. And once it became clear that he was finding the stairs difficult, I decided to put the stairgate in place, for his own safety.
For the first couple of nights, he seemed a little confused but soon settled down and now, I tell him goodnight and he's content to stay on his comfy bed. I did worry whether he would be lonely as he has always slept in my room but he finds the stairs so difficult that it really is safer for him to stay downstairs. Thankfully, I didn't need to worry about Wiggle as I'm able to watch him via the Panasonic Smart Home camera:
I have to admit, I hadn't heard of the Smart Home system before I was asked to review it but I honestly think its brilliant. Day and night, I can see that Wiggle and Sofy are both relaxed and I don't need to worry when I am away from home.

We are very excited to announce the fundraising auction for the 2016 Wiggle The Dog calendar!
For 2016, I've looked back on Wiggle's younger years, celebrating the fun he had, before old age caught up with him and slowed him down.
The calendars are offered on an auction basis, to the 3 highest bidders. All of the funds raised will go directly to Labrador Rescue South East & Central who have been taking care of Wiggle's medical needs for all these years.
Wiggle is not the only Labrador taken care of by the charity and without their support, Wiggle and many other needy Labrador's would not be enjoying the lives they have now.
To be in with a chance of winning a whole year of Wiggle, whilst also helping a wonderful charity, please email your bids to firstname.lastname@example.org
The 3 highest bids as at midnight (GMT) on Sunday 20th December 2015 will win the calendars.
Once the winners have been notified, electronic payment is preferred, directly to LRSE&C's Just Giving account, details of which will be provided. Post and packaging to any location in the UK or worldwide will be paid for by me and all being well, the calendar's will arrive in time for Christmas.
Good luck and please bid generously!
