Twas the night before Christmas

...and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a Pit Bull :)

Wait wait wait. Spuds and Shadow heer. I know mama duznt let us type this bloggie very often, but we wanna show u wuts going on in the house. We are definitely stirring.

See...we found deez presents under da inside toilet tree, and we fink dey have r names on dem. Butt...mama and daddy wont let us chew dem up yet! Duz anyone no why?

I thought maybe Santa had to come first before we could open dem. Becuz, you no, we met him and it seemed like he wuz the one supposed to bring presents, from da conversashun we had wif him and all. I watched for him out da window, see? All I saw was snow. Hmpf.
We are also a little sooprised to see presnts under da tree, becyz Santa told us he doesnt come til veeery layte on Christmas Eve, and it is not veeery layte yet. Butt, based on wut we saw, these presents are just from mama and daddy anywayz.
I guess we'll be snuggling next to the tree, waiting fur morning. We sure r excited about opening r presents.
Did ur mama and daddy let u open ne presents early?
Ok, wee are signing off now. R paws r tired from all this typing. We shoulda let mama do it.

Christmas is Coming and iPhone blogging troubles

Hi everyfurry!! Christmas will be here before we know it. The dogs have been getting lots of Christmas cards from everyone in the card exchange. We have ours all ready to be mailed out tomorrow. The dogs have gotten more Christmas cards that Chad and I, hehe.

Shadow has been adapting to having a Christmas tree in the window. She still manages to get her window-gazing in, even with the big tree in the way.

She is sporting her new "piggy" sweater (Or Miss Piggy, as we refer to her) in this pic. It is from Chilly Dog sweaters, and it is the first clothing item she has ever liked. I'm pretty sure she is tired of being chilly in the winter. She seems happier, cuddlier, and calmer with this sweater on.

The Pooches would also like you to know that they met the "Big man" last week. They met.....
There was a local pet food store doing photos with Santa, and the profits benefited a local animal shelter. Spuds and Shadow did SO great in the store. They were friendly to everyone, seemed very comfortable in the unfamiliar environment, and also were so nice to Santa. I wasn't sure what to expect, because sometimes Spuds can be a little put-off by people wearing hats. Also, Shadow doesn't always warm up to people right away. She, however, greeted everyone in the store with a lick, hug, and tail wag. I was really amazed at how open they were to the whole experience. Talk about a "proud mother" moment! I'm pretty sure they enjoyed just being in the store more than actually getting their picture taken with Santa, but it seemed like they had fun overall!
Have you ever taken your dogs to meet Santa? How did it go?
On a human-related note, my Blogger app on my iPhone says I'm at my photo limit and won't let me do posts to Blogger through the app anymore, so I can only do them on my laptop. Has anyone else ran into this problem? If so, how did you resolve it? I thought about deleting some of the posts that are saved into the app to make more memory space, but I'm pretty sure if I delete them from the list of posts on the app, they'll disappear from the blog. I'm not sure why it says I'm at my photo limit on the app, but is still letting me post from the laptop...

Happy Holidays

Shadow wishes everyone a happy holiday season!
We just finished decorating the tree, and I found her jingle bell collar. She was excited to prance around in it (probably because she anticipated treats?) Shadow has also enjoyed laying under the tree on the tree skirt. She's always the first one to try out laying on something new.
Spuds did his traditional "I must walk underneath the tree a million times on day 1 that it's up." Ever since he was a puppy, he has treated Christmas trees as a prop for playing, and loves to walk, slide, run, etc underneath them. Surprisingly, he hasn't broken many ornaments in his 8 years.
Do your dogs have any holiday season traditions?
