About Me

My photo
Officially, I am Boowire Sunny Bay a Welsh Terrier. I think there's some mistake in this name for surely I am Ozymandias King of Kings. Ask my two human servants - they will tell you. For day to day purposes I use the name Archie though for some reason, my servants address me by many different names.

On Christmas

What I cannot work out is why I am nearly 20 years old and as yet have only experienced two Christmas Days!  Still, I try to follow English and Welsh tradition where the servants are allowed to sit at the table and I wait on.  The tradition in my family is always roast ribs of beef for Christmas dinner which goes back to long before geese or turkeys became the order of the day.  And so I wait on, and on, and on having learnt that sooner or later the servants will misuse their Yuletide alcohol allowance and forget to push their chairs under the table.  There it is - roast rib, bones, fat and gravy.  Two Christmas dinners and two royal thefts and a third to come in just over a week!!!  So to all my pals here, the USA, Canada, Australia and everywhere in the world - a big fat Merry Christmas!
