Holiday Update

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

We certainly did. Either Santa has loosened up on the requirements for making it onto the 'nice' list, or the wee dram of "aqua vitae" that Mom left for him (and the gourmet dog cookies left for the Reindogs) helped 'grease the wheels' so to speak, because we did quite nicely by Santa! Not only did we get tons of snow right before Christmas (thanks again, Tank!), but we did quite well in the pressie department, too. We got a couple of 'Skinneeez' (of which we have no pictures, because while they have no stuffing, they have squeakers in them, and Abby has totally de-squeaked one of them - the other one is probably in hiding...), a snake stuffie (that has miraculously remained intact - for the moment), a bunch of bully sticks, some Jumbones, and a couple of containers of gourmet dog cookies. Thanks, Santa!!! (And thanks, Granny and Grandpa!)

Anyhoo, we got up early on Christmas morning so we could get in some quality early-morning zoomies before Mom and Dad went skiing... (Skiing on Christmas day is a tradition.)

Mom and Dad came home and we got in some quality bitey-face time

Note to Santa: Next year, could you take my sister and bring me a hamster instead? Thanks - Fiona

Mom and Dad did the pressie thing and we had roast chicken for dinner (and Mom let us have a little bit in the kitchen, on account of it being a holiday and all!). We had a quite evening snoozling. All in all, it was a perfect day.

I do have one question: when does Santa start making his naughty/nice list for next year? He takes at least a few days off after the Christmas rush, doesn't he?

I'm thinking we've got a couple of days where Santa won't really notice our behavior...

Although I'm going to reiterate my request for a hamster. Somehow my little sister has gotten, well, not so little any more, and there are more and more scenes like this:

Seriously. What is up with that?!?

She is getting WAY tougher to take down. And as often as not, it is SHE who is taking ME down. *sigh*

At least I am still Queen of the Zoomies!

And Queen of the Frisbee

Where Abby is, uh, Queen of, uh, Sitting in the Snow...


Happy holidays to everyone!

ICE here, ....WOW, do I ever want to join in on that fun! I love the snow and can't wait to go out again and play in it....I just wish I had a brofur or sister poodle to do zoomies with. Happy Holidays...ICE

Might be a problem. We think you would only get to have one game of bitey face with a hamster. Just saying.

Miss Fiona! You have to undercut her legs. She is too much of a moose for you to do the over the back smack down, but if you put your head down and barrel into her legggies she will go flying in a most satisfying way.


Maggie and Mitch said...

What a wonderful Christmas you girls had! We got snow and we can't wait to go outside today to see just how much we got!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Guess what!!!!!!! We gots snow on Christmas Day...curtesy of Tank too! I am shocked he knows Santa so well. Our snow fotos sucked though.

Anyways, I agrees withs Mango's idea of takin down Abby.

It's important to know what we're good at, huh? why bother with working on our weaknesses when we can reign in what we excel at? that's what i say.

and as far as my dogs are concerned, Santa not only takes a few days off, but his 3-strikes rule operates only within a week of christmas. geesh. Santa sure is becomin' one of those hippies. ;)
