Merry Christmas 2013

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  Kelsey can't wait to open her presents in the morning.  This is her Christmas dress this year and we want to thank you for it.  We used her Baxter Boo gift card that she won from their photo contest.  So, thank you to all of you who voted and shared.
We hope you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas.

Family Christmas Photos

Dixie dressed up in a cute Santa hat.  
She was such a good sport.  I love this girl so much.

Simon was Santa's little helper.
He was not very into his costume, but I managed to keep him dressed long enough to get a cute shot.

Tucker dressed up as Santa Paws.  
This was his first time wearing a costume 
and he was such a good boy.

The Boys
Aren't they handsome?!

The Three Amigos
This photo is Christmas card cute!
It's amazing what can be accomplished with cookies.

And the outtakes...
Someone had a little too much egg nog.

Simon was apparently in the mood for Christmas carols, while Tucker was dreaming of some fabulous Christmas cookies.
And Kelsey, let's just hope Santa Paws doesn't see this photo.
Hope you all have a wonderful and merry Christmas!

My Big Outing

Can you guess where Mom and Grandma took me?

We went to Bass Pro because they allow dogs in there (as long as you agree to clean up after your own dog if he/she happens to make a mess).  Do you see that big bear behind me?  I wasn't even scared!

This one made me a little more nervous though.

I felt tiny next to this big one.

We found a huge rocking chair too.

I guess this guy behind me was thirsty...but someone might want to let him know the water there is a bit "fishy."

YOu can't tell, but I am sitting in front of a huge-normous fish tank.  I got excited and started wagging my bushy tail.  This one fish came right up to the glass behind me because he loved it so much.

I got to walk across a little bridge with a stream that had live fish in it.

Mom had me take a picture with these guys...

and these guys for Aunt Nancy.

Then we went to the Santa area, but it was too crowded to visit with Santa that day.  I did meet a few friendly kids.  I was very well-behaved, let them pet me, and I gave the baby kisses too.

My dream came true!  I love fireplaces (Mom, not so much) and this one was huge.  Mom has to watch me around fireplaces because I am so interested in them.

There was a man sitting near the fireplace who thought I was the coolest thing ever because I love posing for my pictures.  Hope you enjoyed my outing too.  

Mom and I have several dog cookie orders to fill this week, so we will be busy, busy, busy.

Santa Fail and Success

On Saturday, Kelsey went to visit Santa.  We went to one where you could do your own pictures.  Even though it was an event for dogs, Santa wasn't great with Kelsey.  And, to be honest, he looked a little creepy in our photo.  So , later on, we went to a different event.  Everyone there was so helpful.  They tried to make Kelsey look good and tried to get her attention so she would look at the camera.  It was a much better experience.

Kelsey got to wear her new Christmas dress that came in the mail Friday night.  Perfect timing!  And, it even fit her perfectly (which is a rare event).  We picked this one out from Baxter Boo using our gift certificate we won from that photo contest a while back.  So, thank you to those of you who helped by voting and sharing.  Kelsey was really good for Santa, so I bet she will be on his nice list this year.

Family Portraits

This sweet boy is Tucker.  He is the same age as Kelsey.  He is an absolute sweetheart with tons of energy.  He will instantly become anyone's best friend.  Tucker loves balls and anything that squeaks.  When given something with a new squeaker, he will squeak it until it dies.

Tucker and Kelsey are best buddies.  
They absolutely love chasing each other.

Tucker was adopted about a month and a half after Kelsey.  And you can tell that Kelsey has been comfortable with him since day one.

And here is the family portrait.  From left to right is Kelsey, Simon, Dixie, and Tucker.

We adopted Dixie when I was still in high school.  She is around 15 or so years old now.  She is starting to get weaker, but still has the spirit of a puppy.  Simon is about 7 now and is still the most mellow guy I have ever known.  He loves coming over to visit.  Hope you enjoyed seeing the whole family.
