Christmas in July

I joined in on Finn and Sprinkles‘s Christmas in July present swap, or fakemas as I like to call it:-)

As there were only 3 of us participating in the UK, we each passed our gifts to each other, so I sent my pressie off to Mollie and received my gift from Molly the Wally.  Thank you Molly.

Notice there are 4 presents here:


Now there are only 3…


This is because as mummy went to take the picture *someone* ran off with the veggie croc into the garden. Luckily I caught the perpetrator but as it was already half eaten I figured i might as well finish it off.


what? wasn’t me!

This is the cute keyring that Molly commissioned from Mollie for me. Thank you both:-) it’s going to look great with mummy’s keys on it.


And this is me with my new toy:-)DSC_0373Thank you so much Molly. And thanks to Finn and Sprinkles for hosting the event:-)

    I love how you call me Sparkles.

    Your keychain is so cute!

    Looks like you really cleaned up with all the fab gifts you got! Thank you so much for participating in Christmas in July. I hope you had as much fun as I did.

    • Misaki says:

      Oh Sprinkles I’m so sorry, not sure what happened there, suspect it was mummy’s fault. I’ve corrected my post. Sorry again!

  26. Fabulous Fakemas haul, Misaki. I need to know more about the veggie croc. It must be really really good if “someone” ran off with it and it disappeared that quickly!

    • Misaki says:

      Veggie crocs are the bestest. Do you have them where you live?

      • I don’t think so, but my mommy tends to be one of the least informed humans when it comes to these sorts of things. The more I read about all the fun things other dogs get, the more I think my humans need more training. πŸ™‚

  27. Wow, very cool. wag wag, Max & Bella

  28. onebluedog says:

    Molly sure did a great job picking the perfect Christmas in July presents for you, Misaki! πŸ™‚
