Super Christmas!

I hope you all had a nice Christmas! I sure did! From Mom, I got this new frog (below) that’s really big and has lots of squeakers and even makes a frog noise that sounds more like a cow than anything, a chewy bone, a squeaky reindeer toy, a hide-a-squirrel toy, and a toy to keep me busy finding treats (bigger than my kong). And Grandma and Grandpa got me a really nice new bed and some yummy pig ears! Yes, I was a very good girl this year!

Here are some pics of Christmas morning. It was my cousin Sophia’s first Christmas! As you can see, she’d rather play with me than open presents.

Merry Christmas!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Play Date with Sandy!

Last night, my friend Sandy came over for a play date! Since we both contracted viral papilloma from another dog from out dog park, we both have yucky warts on the inside of our mouth. Neither of our moms were happy that they couldn’t take us to the park, since we’re contagious. So us sick kids get to play together!

I finally had a friend to play with out in my fenced-in yard! But it has been so cold, that there’s a thick sheet of ice over everything. So we played while slipping and sliding all over the place. Mom and Sandy’s mom were laughing so hard, they had to take videos of us.

Mom tried to take pictures of us too, but we were constantly in motion. And here it looks like Sandy got possessed by the devil! Hehe! Don’t know what was going on there. I’ve heard of red eye, but glowing eye?

Sandy's glowing eyes

Sandy’s mom also brought over a new toy for me! She said that Sandy was scared of it and ran. Well, here’s a video of what it does. I don’t show much interest in it here. But Mom’s going to take more video tonight, because I learned how to turn it on myself! And I love this new toy! But Mom says she doesn’t think she’s going to be so crazy about it after the 100th time I make it do the funny noises.
Anyway, thanks Sandy's mom! I love it!

A Package For Me!

Friday afternoon Mom found a package at our door. And it was addressed to me! I won the November dog photo contest over at; and they sent me a Christmas toy! Check out the cool candy cane!

Mom said it was supposed to talk (see the first video below), but it didn’t make any noise other than a click. I didn’t care that it didn’t work though, I went crazy over it! I love new toys!

Too Lazy To Make Christmas Cards

Since Mom is too lazy to make Christmas cards this year, like so many of our friends, here's a Christmas photo and a Happy Holidays greeting to all!

This is obviously a Christmas picture frame from PetSmart that says "Be Jolly" on it and a picture of me that doesn't really fit. Very funny, Mom. I can't help it if I only have one expression.

I think this is a much better picture; and both of us are in it.

Also, we just received this nice Christmas Card via email from my pal Chef. Thanks, Chef!

I Make This Look Good

Mom finally had me try on a new sweater last night. It’s super cute but a little to snug. So until Mom stretches it out, she won’t make me wear it again. I didn’t like it at all.

Getting Warm

When Mom is watching tv or messing around on her computer, I like to lay next to her, right in front of the space heater. Cozy!

6th Folder Tag

I stole this from Bolo. You're supposed to find the 6th picture from the 6th folder in your photo files. Well, I'm going to pull from my pictures in mom's flickr account (which just happens to be the 6th photo set!).
And here it is.. me looking lazy, as usual! And this is from the day Mom brought me home from the Humane Society last April!
Yes, that's really how my neck looks, lots of extra skin!

Toys and Pig Ears

At one point last night, Mom caught me stacking up my toys to chew on. But then, I just decided to cuddle with them.


Oh! And I got a new pig ear, since I had pretty much devoured my last one! You can see the remains of my last one in the bottom picture on the right hand side.

Christmas Meme

Thanks for all the well wishes!
Since so many others have done it, I thought I'd have fun with the latest Christmas Meme too:

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper. But mom likes to use gift bags when she’s feeling lazy.

2. Real tree or Artificial?
Artificial and pre-lit. Definitely. Much less work.

3. When do you put up the tree?
Usually the weekend of Thanksgiving, though we did it the weekend before this year.

4. Wreath on your door?

5. Do you like eggnog?
I haven’t had it, but Mom loves it!

6. Favorite Xmas gift received as a child?

Most of the presents get opened on Christmas eve, but we save the stockings for Christmas morning. Though, Mom said I get my stocking Christmas eve, before leaving for the Grandparents’.

Uh, Rudolph, Dasher, Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, and Blitzen!

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?

21. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Mom says they always eat duck for Christmas, so I’m hoping to score a piece of that!

Our tree is all blues and silver.

Whatever Mom sings to me. Mom’s favorite is Silent Night.

28. Your very Favorite Christmas Thing?
More decorations means more places to hide my bones and biscuits!

Under the Weather


Mom hasn't been feeling well lately, so I've had to step up and keep her company by cuddling and sleeping all day with her.
It's a tough job, but...

No, wait. I sleep all day anyway, so it's just a bonus that I get to sleep in Mom's bed instead of mine!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!

Investigating the Christmas Tree


Mom put up the Christmas tree early since we’ll be at Grandma and Grandpa’s for the next couple days. I waited a couple days before going and checking it out to make sure it’s safe.

Is that present for me?


Lip-smacking good!


Mmm… what’s that smell?


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We’re off to Grandma and Grandpa’s this afternoon! We’ll be back in a few days!

Early Thanksgiving!

We celebrated an early Thanksgiving with my great-grandparents on Saturday, since they won’t be able to come this Thursday. Having so many people at our house was fun, but I soon got worn out!


Mom put the holiday bandana on me, since we would be taking a Christmas card picture later with the whole family. (Great Grandpa took the picture.)


If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know how cute my cousin is. Well, she loves me just as much as I love her! All I have to do is shake my head, and she will laugh! Here are some pics of her coming after me. I wanted to give her kisses on her face, but her mom and dad kept me back each time.


I found my bed again, when she got a little too touchy with me.


But my cousin followed me!


It turns out, all she wanted was the bell on my bandana!
