The Valentine's Toys are Back

Mama thought she was being sneaky when she packed away our Christmas toys. She had Dad sneak them into the attic when we were outside thinking we would not notice a few holiday toys missing among the huge stack of other dog toys. However, we know our toys and we miss them when they go away. However, we do seem to get very excited when they magically reappear and we treat them as if they are new friends.

That is how we felt when the Valentine's toys appeared this weekend. Mom got out the Valentine’s box and inside the box were our holiday toys. We immediately took to fighting playing with our stuffed candy hearts and other Valentine stuffies. Dad was out shopping this weekend and he said he found some new doggy Valentine stuff for us. Of course we have to wait for the big day and then they will put it away shortly afterwards, but there is always next year to look forward to seeing them again.

Clean Bill of Health

Dad took us to the vet on Saturday. Dad did warn me about the rabies shot, but he forgot to mention the several other pokes for shots, blood and that awful inhaled stuff up the nose. Katy sat bravely with me. The vet is extremely nice about letting us go to each other's visits. She seems to understand we support and encourage each other. Katy sniffed me all over when it was done and stayed by me all afternoon when I was feeling the after effects of all the pokes.

The Vet gave me a clean bill of health. I am dealing with some aging issues, but nothing that was not expected of my breed and age.

If That's Not Love What Is?

Can we get any privacy in this house? The Paparazzi is incredible. Here we are sharing a private moment and now it is splashed all over Blogville. They have no shame.

Mama is slowing returning the house to pre-Christmas status. The tree is almost ornament free. You have no idea how much that tree can hold. Our Christmas toys have not yet gone away. We are trying to hide some of them, but Mama always manages to find them.

Our snow cookie supply is holding out. We are starting to enjoy ice cookies as well. It is a new treat this year. Much like the ice cubes Mama gives us in the summer, these we can have without having to wait for Mama to give them to us.

We are getting back to our walk schedule now that the holidays are over. Mama and Papa donned their winter gear and took us out last night. Surprisingly we were the only dogs out. It seems others either went earlier or decided not to brave the cold.

Happy New Year

We had such a busy Christmas vacation we did not have a minute to blog although we did get a few comments in here and there.

First, we would like to thank everyone who sent us cards. We got so many wonderful compliments on our card wreaths and Mama had to admit most the cards were ours.

Second, we want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year. We had a wonderful New Years Eve celebration. One of our favorite relatives was here and we got so much attention.

Christmas was amazing, too. Our Florida Grandmother spoiled us with new toys. A friend bought us toys and treats on Christmas Eve. Santa had bones and new toys for us in our Christmas socks. (Dad always donates Christmas socks for us to chew through as our Christmas stockings.)

We were in such a mellow mood on Christmas Eve we let our NC Grandma brush us out when we found our tree house trees left us with tree sap on our coats.

Mama told Papa she is going to start taking down the tree today. We will be sad to see it go as it is one of our favorite places to hide. However, it will give us back more room to run around, so that is a good thing.
