How Do I Look?

The last part of my Christmas gift was delivered today. Santa Paws apologized for the tardiness, but he wanted it made just for me!

More Holiday .... Fun?

Mama went out today to the doctor, cuz she's been sick for a long time. She has a sinus infection. She says she's glad I don't have one, or else there'd be a boatload of stuff coming out of *my* nose. I don't really know what that means, but it doesn't sound fun.

Mama, on the other hand, had a lot of fun filming my reaction to this ... "thing" ... she brought home from the pharmacy.

Her only regret is that her camera/video thing doesn't appear to have sound, so you have to see the thing moving and imagine it singing "We Woof You a Merry Christmas", and then "watch" me react to it instead of hear me react to it!

Hubba Hubba Hubba

Merry Christmas everyone! This is what I went to bed to last night:

It's kind of hard to see here, but you might notice something sticking out of the stocking thingie right next to the tree! That's MINE. I wonder what it is? Mama says it's something that's going to make me go "hubba hubba hubba".

This morning, though, she made me help grandpa open his gift, first.

Yummmmm. Wrapping paper. "Hubba Hubba Hubba", I said. Mama said that isn't the "Hubba" gift. Wow. There's more???

There was something so smelly in there that I didn't bother to eat the wrapping paper; I just wanted to eat whatever was inside it!

Oh My! Get a load of THAT! I'm not really sure what it is, but I sure didn't waste any time going at it.

For a chewer like me, this is HEAVEN! Mama says it's called a Quado Bone, and it's all natural and digestible. It also is supposed to provide TONS of chewing pleasure.

Well, I'm sure getting a start at my TONS of chewing time.

They say it isn't intended for a one-sitting chew, but after just five minutes, THIS is what I'd done to it:
I'd already chewed the first "bone top" off! Now THIS is HUBBA, HUBBA, HUBBA!

Mama took it away then, cuz she says it's not good to have too much rawhide stuff at once. She promised another go at it later, though.

Mama also said there is one more gift coming that hasn't arrived yet. That's okay. This will keep me busy for at least another hour!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and that amidst all the tearing, chewing and playing, we all remember the Reason for the Season!

Merry Christmas

Mama can't believe it's been three Christmases with me already! She has this annoying habit of forcing me to sit on this fat man's lap every Christmas, too. I mean, REALLY annoying. But I guess it does make me feel wanted and loved. I hope every one has that feeling today and every day.

I found a couple of new blogs today, and I'm going to make a Pawsome Post out of one of them (although they both deserve it!). I haven't had a Pawsome Post in a while!

Does She Really Expect

Me to NOT eat these up?

Festivity and Update

It's about time mama let me post the Christmas picture! Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, she puts up lights and decorations for Christmas. Here's what this year's outside looks like:

She didn't take any of the inside, but most of her 32 nutcrackers are in the kitchen, on the window ledge behind the sink and above the range on the ledge up there. I can't reach them :(.

Now for the really exciting news. Mama took me to the v-e-t last Saturday because I've been vomiting a bit more than usual. Not a lot, but more than usual. See, for those who might not have known or forgotten, I have a GI issue called Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and sometimes I throw up (sometimes it comes out the other end in a watery explosive way!). Don't worry, though, with medication I am completely stable on the rear end and mostly but not quite all stable on the upper part, hence the occasional barf.

Ooops. I guess I should have warned you about the graphic nature of this post. I hope you're not eating! Anyway, the vet has always instructed mama not to give me any food except my hypoallergenic food and the hypoallergenic dog biscuits the vet carries. She's followed that dictate almost to the letter, with the only exception of a weeeee bit of peanut butter to take my meds. The bad news is, I started throwing up occasionally about the same time as mama started using peanut butter to pill me, so now it's no more peanut butter and more fingers down my throat every morning to get me to swallow my pills!

The good news, though, is that mama beggggggged the vet for some idea of what she can give me to chew on instead of me choosing paper, wood, plastic, socks, etc. See, the best way to teach a dog not to chew things he can't chew is to give him something he can chew. But with my GI issues, mama couldn't give me nuttin else TO chew (I tear apart stuffie toys in seconds and EAT the stuffing, so that rules THAT out). I play with a ball sometimes, but that's not really a chew thing. Well, the vet told mama to try giving me a small-ish unflavored rawhide to chew on and see if I tolerate that. It's been four days now. Do you think I enjoy the rawhides?
Something weird comes over me when I have a rawhide, though. I start to chew, then roam from spot to spot in the house, carrying the rawhide around, whimpering. Mama hates to hear me whimper, and she looked in my mouth to be sure I didn't cut myself. She thinks I do this because she thinks I'm trying to find a place to bury the rawhide (I dig in the blankets and on my bed while I whimper and roam).

Do They Know It's Christmas

Last year I posted a video created by Pappy that featured many of our Dogs With Blogs pals singing Band-Aid's song, "Do They Know It's Christmas". Mama has always been touched by this song, whether sung by humans or lip-synched by doggies, and quite honestly, so have I. So I bring you another worthy re-run to kick off the holiday season!
