Holidays are busy!

I haven't really had time to read all the blogs, I need to catch up! Chad got a camera phone. It takes really small pics, but cute nonetheless! So I wanted to share some. I will be sending off our "thank you" package to our furriends in Texas soon, probaby after the new year. Until then, here are some random pics of the dogs :)

They're so clingy. Are your dogs like that?



Cuddlin':



Chad sent me this picture yesterday morning. "Drive careful!"


HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!! Tiene un año prospero!!

Package Fun!

Hey, you guys got a package!

Shut up, no we didn't. I'm soo not fallin fer that one.



No really, you did. It's from our pittie furriends at Kissa-bull blog. Look!

Oh my doG we did! It's even addressed to us!

Spuds decided to get a closer look.

Hmmm, wut do we have here. Sure smells yummy!

The first thing we saw was a Christmas card. The pooches enjoyed that. If you couldn't tell, they were very much in the Christmas spirit, what with their hats and all.

How nice of the pittie pack!
Mmmm, this luks perfect fer me!!

Mine mine mine mine mine! Luk wut I got!

Ooooh, there's one fer me too!

I think she kind of liked this bone. I'm just sayin....

NOMNOMNOMNOMNOM

She was sure to not miss a crumb. The pooches were so excited about all the cool stuff in their very first package!

Here's all the stuff they got. Shadow was supposed to be modeling next to it but she was a little occupied stuffing her face! :)

Of course Kado had to join in on the fun too! He ate the third bone, then Chad decided to try out the toss-n-tug, which is the blue toy in the pic. Kado lloooovvess to play the most. He gets really enthusiastic and bounces reallllyyy high!

Mmmm, stuffy!

Why do I have to be sooo.short. Ugh!!

Shadow couldn't catch the ball so she opted for Kado's ear instead.
Woohooo!

Spuds tried out the treats in the yellow box, and approved!

Thank you Brinks, Bella, Coco, and Guero for all the cool stuff!!

To top off their Christmas spirit-fun package-yummy stuff- day, it snowed! Shadow was sooo excited!!

Thanks again to our furriends for all the great stuff :)

Mmmmmm.....



blankets! See the hole in the wall in the background? Spuds used to stay in Chad's room while everyone was gone because he doesn't really do well in a cage. He NEVER had a problem being in Chad's room but one day something must have freaked him out or made him stressed or something...because he tried to tunnel through the wall. Sigh...lol

Holidays and Giving

Hi all! I hope your Thanksgiving week was wonderful. I'm happy to say for once, I didn't feel stress this holiday, I didn't feel rushed around, and it was drama free for me. Christmas is just around the corner now...and I feel like the past few days have been all about trees!

Chad and I have been together for a long time now, but have never gotten a real tree together, just had fake ones put up. So, on black Friday, the search began for our first real tree. (I recently discovered picnik.com so I edited these next few pics on there.) There were so many to walk through and look at...




And eventually we found one! We're standing in front of it now so you can't see it...



But here it is, the light one in front. I don't think it's actually that light of a green, but just the lighting in this picture...It's a Canaan tree. The needles feel like rubber so you can decorate without gloves. :)



What does this have to do with dogs, you ask? Well...nothing really...but I do have fun dog-related stuff planned for this post too!

Anyway, then we were driving to a local mall and saw this view ahead of us. See the evergreens in the shadows? Christmas is in the air.



Then we get to the mall and it's already been decorated! It was all lit up and it was chilly outside and the horse drawn buggie things with sleigh bells ringing were all around the streets. It was so pretty.



Ok, done with that now :) Onto dogs!

Villalobos Rescue (The Pitbull rescue on the show "Pitbulls and Parolees") is having a blanket drive. I found fleece throws at a local CVS for $2.50, so I bought a bunch to send out to the pitties in California! I'll post a pic of the blankets I got soon, they're still in my car (story of my life...). Shadow managed to sneak one away from me, and proceeded to chase her blanket-covered tail. She's never done that before. It seemed like she was trying to figure out what the heck it was under the blanket, haha! Here's the genius in action:



Last week I was at my parents' and happened to look out the back door to see something that made me smile. Two of their dogs, one of which you've met on the blog (Kasey, the bigger white and black one), were having the time of their lives playing together. Because there are so many unhappy dogs in this world, I never take for granted a chance to see happy dogs, with no greater worry than how long they'll get to stay outside and play. It warms my heart, so I thought I'd leave you with my cell phone video of them. Enjoy, and happy holidays!
