++ My January ++

Harris and I realised while looking through his Instagram photos that January was basically one long snuggle. Snuggling on the sofa, snuggling in his bed, snuggling on his Grannie's sofa. Just snuggling. But then January was cold. Cold, often freezing, with gales and rain and sleet thrown in. And Harris doesn't like gales, rain or sleet. Or freezing weather. So, really, who can blame the snuggling? January is a month for hibernation. 😴

Snuggling with Dad...

Snuggling with Mum...

A bit more snuggling with Mum...

"Sorry, were you needing something...?"

"Don't even think about waking me..."

Snuggling with Luther and Little Dude...

"Eh, what...?"

Being helpful with the laundry...

But January has also been a month of progress. Great progress. Harris and I have been working through some anxiety issues over recent months. The city has become overwhelming for the little guy. Too much noise, too much traffic, too much of everything. So we've been working on it a step at a time, with new experiences and challenges every week. And this month, something clicked into place. Harris started walking again. Stressing less. It's been great to see.

Of course, no month would be complete without grouching, right? Here, this month's grouch with Little Dude. This translates roughly into: "Pick him up... I own you... pick him up. You will obey..."

January is also a good month to work on your styling. Fleecy coats are a must, clearly, but a guy should also consider working a snood into the mix...

Scruff styling...

The best part of any month - for us all, to be honest - are those times when we escape from the city and head to the beach. Or a wood. And if Uncle Bracken is involved, well, that's even better...

Until next month... have a great February ☼
