In a panic over Christmas? Bertie advises...

What to do..

Grab a beer.

Help with the decorations.

Remove any irritating and questionably 'seasonal' neckwear.

Go for a walk somewhere nice*.

Then chill...


  1. We are most impressed at your balancing skills, lying front to back in a chair and not falling out. Your approach to Chistmas pretty much matches ours. Not mama's, but ours. It's been freezing here, but we've been spared the snow. Looks like yours is there to stay unil Spring.

  2. Sounds like a great plan there Bertie!! Love the chillin pictures!! too cute!!


  3. Now, that's a great plan!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  4. Bertie - The model of efficiency. Next thing you'll be telling me is that you're off to Pittodrie this afternoon to welcome Craig Brown.

  5. You've nailed it, Bertie. But perhaps we need a counter opinion from Gail?

    Wirey woofs,

    Jake and Just Harry

  6. Bertie, you've got this whole holiday thing figured out!

  7. It looks like you've been working very hard on holiday preparations and certainly deserve that rest.

  8. I think mom better come and have alook at your post, you have the right idea ;)
    Love the photo of you by Crathes Castle did they let you in for a wee dram;)
    See Yea George xxx

  9. Bertie Bertie, Sandy Paws is still watching!

  10. Hi Bertie
    How very wise you are! And this is your very first Xmas!!!
    Well we are happy to follow your advice - well apart from the beer - perhaps a tiny little sherry for us Aunties.
    We always love to go walking somewhere nice too and help in whatever way we can.
    We absolutley refuse to wear anything festive!
    The only thing is Bertie, it is the humans - do you have any idea what the phrase 'headless chicken' means?
    We keep hearing it - we try to carry on as calmly as possible.
    Much love
    The Aunties xxx
    ps sorry we are late but blame the chicken!

  11. HOLY COW!!!! I HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE!!! YOU SLEEP JUST LIKE ARCHIE WITH HIS LEGS STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR!!! really uncanny..I thought he was the only one.. Just don't start watching the TV cooking shows.. then I will start to get nervous.. Love A+A

  12. Excellent advice, Bertie...but I thought a Scotsman such as yourself would be advocating grabbing a single Scottish malt instead??!! :-)

    Love, Dozer and Cooper
