Happy Boxing Day! My desk calendar says it is a Canadian holiday, but I grew up celebrating it… ??
We opened our gifts from Nichole and her gang yesterday. They spoiled us well, as always!
That’s the group shot. There were lots of goodies for all of us. Sissy was so sure her Dadaw’s turtles were for her too, but chocolate is a big no-no for dogs, so no such luck! While it was all wonderful and thoughtful, there were three VERY special items.
Those are cuff bracelets with Fred, Sissy and Mugsy. They were made before Gretchen entered our lives. How special! Thank you so VERY much, Nic. Now I can take the gang with me when I’m feeling blue – er, pink or purple?
Then, there’s this adorable wall hanging. The little bone on his neck is a magnet. How cute is that?!
That’s the ornament Nic had made for us. What I don’t think she knows it sthat the Knight and I adore gingerbread! Thanks again, Nic and the rest of your gang!
Dearest Mr. Bettis and family –
Thank you so much for your awesome Christmas package. That’s the humans’ stuff, although we saw a ball (dog toy, right?), a smelly warm thing, and a half-crate pad for Gretchen, but Mom says they’re hers, not ours.
We did get our gifts, but we were too excited to allow Mom to get a photo of our goodies with everything else. I REALLY liked the cube, and could tell you’d sent me a kiss on it. I wouldn’t let Gretchen play with it at all; she’s just a baby, you know… (Edited by Mom – Sissy’s loved this toy to pieces already. She’s NEVER done that before, so I’m quite sure that she was so taken with Mr. Bettis’s kisses and smell…)
I let Gretchen have the “mink” baby. I know it looks like I wasn’t about to share, but this photo was taken before the cube was presented. The baby is bigger than Gretchen, but she’s a game little thing.
That’s Mom’s favorite photo. Gretchie was more than a little excited about the baby, and could barely wait when I was checking it out.
There was a little confusion over the foot warmer. Dadaw thinks it is for him and can’t figure out how to fit his big feet in it. Mom said he could borrow it for his toes if he’d take the swiffer sweater (red with paw prints) for a test wipe or ten, but so far, he hasn’t bothered.
This Christmas thing is pretty cool. We got lots of pressies from all kinds of people, but Mom won’t let us have anymore right now. (I told you last time she’s rude, and she has a mean streak too.) I’m still waiting to try this snow stuff everyone keeps talking about.
Hope you had a good Christmas!
Sissy (and Gretchen too)
