Day of remembrance

Now is close to midnight  and is almost Christmas day, it will be Christmas by the time this is written. I want to remember the past year, this picture is early autumn and this bench is dedicated to someone who is no longer here, that’s what my female human parent said. The flowers smelled fresh and I was tempted to chew but these were left by people who loved the one who is no longer there, so I didn’t. It would have been wrong, but instead of chewing I enjoyed the smell. Soon it will be a new year and a new start.

Email from Finland, where Santa lives

Hi Ponta, I want to wish you A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year. Best greetings from Finland. We have a lot of snow here and I really enjoy it! By the way I like your blog.

Your friend from Finland, Lulu


Well, I say,  I really am international! Lulu (she’s now featured on my friend’s page), is from Finland which is at the top of the world and populated by creatures called Moomins, lots of Santa’s little helpers, Elves, has reindeer,  lots of snow and a big jolly bearded chap lives there called Mr Claus who gives presents to everyone. Best regards to Santa and all the forest and snow people in Finland!

I hope Santa got my letter about the snow in England and the shortage of bones and treats….

My latest movie role

As well as being an artist in the visual sense I can act even when confined inside a snow dome and shaken up. It was cold in there but you can see my skills in pretending that I look like I enjoy the cold and running. This is called method acting… actually I really enjoyed doing this….running, running… hmm hungry now.

Had my photo taken

Met Hiraki san who is a very nice man from Japan. He liked the way I pulled the stick. I’m not sure I understood what he does (humans said it was very interesting) but he rubbed my belly and that is always a sign of a nice person.



Great photo too, makes me look very clever…
