The best xmas present ever

I just realised that I haven't introduced you guys to my gorgeous dog yet! When I was younger, all I wanted was a dog; so on Christmas 2001, Mum asked us to help her unpack a box of wine and when the twins and I opened it up, a tiny brown dog leaped out. I was so happy I burst into tears (which unfortunately dad got on tape). We spent all afternoon thinking up a name for her and I'm proud to say I came up with the name. I named her Dasher after the reindeer because it was Christmas time and she wouldn't stop dashing all over the house. So anyway, Dasher is now 10 and she is a kelpie cross collie. She is a bit of a snob sometimes but she's very obedient and I like to think she understands me. Here are a few loads of my favourite photos of her:
Dasher as a tiny puppy - I wish she was still this small so I could pick her up and cuddle her :(
One of her favourite past times as a puppy was dragging the toilet paper into the back yard
Her favourite thing is her ball - she's too good for little plastic squeaky toys
She's an awesome jumper
Unfortunately she doesn't really swim much anymore because she's too much of a wuss
She loves going to the beach with us
And she's so patient when we dress her up (you should see some of the outfits we put her in!)
She is the best dog anyone could wish for and I love her so much
