Christmas is coming!! We are officially ready here at the Dawg House! Mommy has finished shopping and wrapping. The tree is up, the lights are on, and the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. There is a new stocking up this year! Daddy had to rearrange the hooks on the mantle to make room for Jenna's, but I think the result looks pretty good. We each have a stocking that looks remarkably like us.
Dinner time has been interesting the past two days. Each year when the tree goes up, our food bowls have to be moved to another location. I am quite used to this process, but my sisters aren't. When Mommy dishes up our food Jenna runs to her crate, and Dixie runs to her usual place which is currently on the left side of the Christmas tree. I can understand Jenna's behavior since technically she could still eat in her crate and this is her first Christmas with us. Dixie on the other hand is definitely confused! Does she think Mommy is going to place her bowl beneath the tree with the presents?? We are temporarily eating in the dining room. That makes perfect sense, don't you think? I wonder how many days it will take for my sisters to catch on . . .
Mommy had an interesting dinner experience herself tonight. After fixing her plate, she went into the garage to retrieve a soda (for you Yankees), or pop (for you Mid-Westerners), or Coke (for you Southerners and it was actually a Diet Coke) from the extra drink fridge. After she had been eating her dinner for several minutes, we all heard a very high pitched yelp. The yelp for help was coming from Dixie! Dixie had become trapped in the garage when she followed Mommy in there without Mommy noticing. This has happened before, but it's been a while. Poor Dixie. Won't she ever learn?
I'll leave you with a picture of Jenna in front of the tree. Mommy hasn't forced us into the usual Christmas tree photo session --- yet! I'm sure it's coming, but Mommy got lucky with this one!
Have a great week! Woof! Woof!
