first post of 08

Happy new year! Its hard to believe its 08 already. 2007 was the best year of my life, so hopefully this one will be nearly as good too.
The last few weeks have been mental with work, Christmas shopping, assignments and socialising! O.J had a bit of variety anyway.
I went to Jordanstown school in Belfast to do an interview for my course before Christmas. We drove to Derry, got the bus to Belfast, 2 trains to Jordanstown, and had to do it all again on the way home. It was a bit mad but O.J was great. He made a great impression on the 6 year old girl who sat beside us on the bus. She kept hugging him and said he was her favourite dog. Aw! One of the students in the school is thinking of getting a dog, and was very curious, so i let her take O.J for a walk down the corridor. The younger kids were fascinated with him too, and one even said he would “completely blind himself” so he could get a guide dog when he is old enough. Hillarius!
We did secret Santa on the friday before Christmas in work, and even O.J got a present – a big bone that apparently looks like a sheep’s leg! He also came to our Christmas dinner in a lovely hotel. Thankfully he was well behaved, and hardly moved during the meal. He did explore Sandinos afterwords and got petted by random strangers.
Santa brought O.J and Dougal stockings for Christmas, and my nephews gave them a wooly jumper each. O.J wore his to show it off, and even though everyone found it funny and cute, he wasn’t impressed at all! Dougal sleeps when we put his on, so its great!
I had a busy Christmas, There were lots of nights out, relaxing with friends, and O.J had his brother up to visit too. It snowed 3 days after new years day, and the dogs ran around not knowing what to think of it. I tried to walk him as much as possible so he wouldn’t get lazy when i got back to work. He didn’t want to get off the bus this morning, and had a mind of his own all day. His trainer is coming to visit on Thursday to see how we’re both doing, so hopefully he’s getting rid of all his bad behaviour before then.
