Merry Christmas!

This whole Christmas thing is WAY cool.    First, we got goodies from Mom's co-workers:

Nifty paw-print blankie perfect for curling up on after snow zoomies
Nifty squeaky toy with rope leggies for tug-o-war
And then, as cool as the pressies are, even better was the fact that Mom had a Four Day Weekend!!! How cool is THAT?!?

We took full advantage of the long weekend.  On Saturday morning, we had doggie class, where we showed what wonderful students we are.

You might think this is our backyard, but it is really the little park near Petco.

Abby is a suck-up while I'm just attentive - can't you tell?

Yep, we can do this 'recall' thing!

Me working for treats while Abby just looks like a goofball.  What else is new?  Heehee.
"Hi.  My name is Fiona.  Do you have any treats?"
After doggie class we hung out at home and did the frisbee thing.

Then on Sunday it snowed!  Dad wasn't super happy about the snow, but we had fun!

Because the weather was snowy and cloudy and snowplows were out and people were driving around doing Christmas shopping, and Mom wanted to be visible, she put on her Santa suit.  (The picture is a little off-kilter because Mom was using the self-timer...)

"Mom - would you stop taking pictures and get us out on our walkies?"
At least Mom was really visible!  Which was a good thing, as the roads were pretty snowy!

 With all the new snow, we got in some Serious Snow Time!

Oh yeah!  There's no zoomies like snow zoomies!

Today (Christmas Day) was cold and sunny, and Mom took us on several long walkies, and we opened pressies (Seriously, Mom, grooming equipment?!?  You might as well have bought us socks and underwear.  At least Granny and Grandpa got us some goodies!).  Mom cooked (okay, heated) and ham for dinner, and we all had a big Christmas dinner, followed by some serious nap time...

Can't. Keep. Eyes. Open.
Heehee!  Unfortunately, Mom has to go back to work for the rest of the week, but then she's got ANOTHER four day weekend!  We can't wait!!!

So more funballs times next weekend, too, right Mom?!?
Merry Christmas to all our family and friends across the country and around the world!

I liked the photo of dad blowing the snow. My Master isn't too happy either when he has to suit up for snow blowing. In fact sometimes he convinces himself that it will all melt. That makes momma kind of mad.

What's with Abby spacing out during class? Hello? Anybody home?

They gave you GROOMING TOOLS??? WHAT??? THAT is so WRONG. Glad you liked your SNOW.

Woohoooo snow zoomies!!! What a great Christmas you had. You both look super cute snuggling on top of each other. Mommy was going crazy with ooooooooooohs and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahs. I hope your Mommy gets to be home again soon for a gazillion days with you.

Glad you had a super fun Christmas - with SNOW!!!! There's no zoomies like snow zoomies! We haven't had even a little snow, but I'm hopeful we'll get some in January or February - hopefully enough that everyone has to stay home. (They don't know how to remove snow from roads here, so when it snows, everything closes so we can play in the snow!)

Happy New Year!!!

your pal,
