This Christmas was different that any other. For the first time in 14 years I did not wake up on Christmas morning with my MOM. See normally on Christmas Eve MOM does the whole Candle Light service at church. She gets home a little before 1AM on Christmas morning. We snuggle up on the couch and watch "A Muppet Christmas Carol". Then we go to sleep, wake up, I open my gifts and MOM makes me turkey balls... YUMMMMMMM. Then we go for a winter walk together, come home and just kick back.
This year MOM worked at the homeless shelter on Christmas Eve until 6PM, then she had to be at church until midnight or so. So she thought it best for me to stay at Bert's place because she had the be at the homeless shelter at 6:30am on Christmas day to cook a Christmas feast for the people there. I totally understand. And I had a great time with Bert and Miss Vickie. They took very good care of me. AND a Christmas miracle happened while I was there. Frankie and Ernie you may want to look away.
Allred and me sharing the same bed!!!! This is proof that miracles do happen.
MOM came and picked me up late Christmas day and when we got home I opened my gifts.
My brother Easy sent me all kinds of cool stuff. A calendar, treats, stuffy bone, a bee, and a nice soft blankie.
Thanks brother. Your the bestest and our hearts always smile when we think of you and your staff.
Then I got to open my gift from Mason the Big Stinky Dog. Funny story here. Seems my MOM and Mason's mom missed the deadline for the gift exchange. Well Mason and I hooked up on Facebook and we took matters into our own paws and decided to exchange gifts. I am so glad we did. Look at all the cool stuff he sent me! And let me tell you those sausage treats are drool worthy. Thanks Mason for all the great gifts.
MOM also had a ton of stuff for me, a lot of it from the peeps at our church. You also may be wondering how the card count turned out. Well take a look.
Lets just say I edged MOM out in the card count. Hehehhe
I have to show you this. This is a gift my MOM received from a very dear and beautiful friend. It's a William Wegman book called ABC. You probably already know he is famous for photographing Weimaraners. MOM was all kinds of thrilled to receive this book. Butt wait it gets even better.
Look right there below my paw. This is a signed copy!!! A signed copy! MOM's friend search the world over to find one, and she did, and she sent it to my MOM.
Hey Easy brother I think those two pups drawings look a lot like us. I also think that Wegman should feature you and me in his next project. If he thinks he is famous now, wait till the two of us grace the pages of his next book.
MOM and I finish Christmas the way we normally start Christmas... snuggled up watching "A Muppet Christmas Carol." I sure hope you all enjoyed your Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and whatever you and your family celebrate. The best part of any celebration is being with the ones you love.
