January is a Clean Slate...

Howdy furry friends! Happy New Year to you all!

I’m so glad my pinkies came home safe and noticabley fluffier from NYC…I will have to get them on the treadmill or something! My luxurious stay with “the best neighbor ever” was ended and I was shuffled back to my humble abode…with a note apparently b/c my mum and dad were mortified to find out that in my exuberance next door I had broken a potted plant, played with stray flashlights, and possibly ‘nibbled’ on some plastic that was laying about. 

Mum and dad immediately started calling me “Wally the Destroyer” and told me I better go apologize to Lisa straight away. I tried to tell them that the pot was really an accident, I was playing tag with Fenway (pretty “girl” next door) and then the flashlights were because I was patrolling the house for intruders and needed to see better. The plastic…well, no comment. It all ended well and Lisa the neighbor still loves me and wants me to come visit her soon :)

I ask you, do I look like a "destroyer"????


While mum and dad were detoxing from the holiday excess (hello green smoothies!) I helped mum take down all the Christmas decorations and did a lot of napping in general. New Year’s Eve was spent much like this:


There was a brief look at the ball drop and then the two pinkies crawled into bed. Very little fanfare was mustered for 2013.

I hope you all had a great time over the winter holidays, I’ll leave you all with a promise to discuss my resolutions for this year and a parting shot of me and my elk antler that mum gave me for Christmas. Yum!!



Until next time....

Putting up the yule...

Just some drop in pix to document the Christmas cheer happening here. This was the 1st weekend in December after the pinkies returned from a quick camping trip with some friends. Mum was exhausted but powered through and got most of the decorations up. I was present to supervise of course. Things just aren’t level and balanced without my inspection skills.


Plus, she almost didn't put up the most important ornaments...mine!!

Mum got a wild hair and said that since she was not buying any new decorations this year, she was all resolved to use the ones from last year until she looked in a magazine and saw these yarn pom poms on a tree…next thing you know they appeared on our tree and the floor was covered in yarn bits and pieces from her pom production. We are going for the “hand made” look this year I suppose. Mum loves it, we boys are indifferent…this did not stop her from telling me to pose in front of her creation.


wait, what?? My tongue is too long?? Is this better?


I'm catching flies?? How about this?



From our family to yours, we wish you the merriest Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!!!
