Belle and I hosted a dog (and his owner) for three nights. Belle enjoyed caring for this dog, including feeding him his food and hers, sharing her toys with him and walking him around the living room. I repeatedly refreshed the dog's water bowl when Belle would throw his food into it and helped take him for walks. We all got along fabulously, even after the dog's attempted escape.
We also hosted a small Sunday dinner party. Four adults of varying ages, a toddler and a dog all celebrated Christmas with a delicious, albeit non traditional, holiday meal: ground turkey and vegetable stir fry, collard greens simmered with rice, mashed potatoes and beets. I drank lots of ale and wine and laughed until it hurt. Our last guest left after midnight. What a great time!
