Mama’s busy working on her stupid laptop, so she asked me to pitch-hit again.
(Not really, but won’t she be surprised when she sees my new post and your lovely comments, tee hee!!)
First off, Life is supposed to revolve around me, so you should know I had a great Christmas. I got some new toys and treats, The Kid (Domer) was home to play Chase with me, and every so often I dragged Mama off for walkies and lovins.
I take my doggie duties extra-serious, you see. And a mama’s got to have regular exercise.
The lovins? Well, that’s just icing on the cake!
Before The Kid arrived, Mama took me for a ride in the car, which I love, but she didn’t tell me was where we were going.
It was to the groomer’s, so I could get beautified.
Well, I’m not exactly happy about it, but I like my furs all sweet-smelling.
Then Mama and The Kid bustled around like bees wrapping presents, decorating the tree, and such.
Here, take a look at a picture Mama took of me with the fruits of their labors:
Wasn’t I being good?? The trick, as Mama learned from her friend Katybeth, is TREATS.
Lots of treats.
And since I’m stomach-driven (Mama says that like it’s a bad thing!), I’ll do most anything for something yummy.
(Squirrel! Did you notice I used three “thing” words in that sentence? Isn’t this fun?!)
I won’t tell you what The Kid calls me when he’s complaining about my eating. I don’t think it’s very nice, and you shouldn’t have to hear words like that.
Anyway, too soon, the festivities were over.
The tree was bare without packages, and Mama said she was going to take down ALL the decorations after the new year rolled around.
So I figured you’d want to see one more picture of ME before that happened:
The Kid says I look sleepy here. I’m not. Definitely NOT!
I’m always watching. That’s what a Sheltie does. I sleep with one eye on my Mama at all times.
Well, maybe not all night, when I know she’s going to be in bed for a while.
This last picture, I’m actually bored. And I’m wondering, Gee, is that all the presents I’m going to get?!
