Stockings, Bones and Squeakies

In continuing with my usual blogging catch up, for today's Dogs on Thursday I thought it would be appropriate to tell you about our 4 Doggy Christmas... thru pictures, of course! You will please excuse the dog hair covered rug... and understand fully that even if I vacuumed 10 times a day, it would still look like that...

Each dog gets a stocking stuffed with toys & treats...

Here's the Queen, Lola, who snagged the paw shaped one. You might notice she's trying to get in to it from the wrong end... sshhh, she'll figure it out eventually (the girl once ran smack dab into the closed back hatch of my SUV... the brightest, she might not be, but she is the most loving!).

Each of the kids also got a nice big rawhide bone all wrapped up. Lola loves to unwrap presents... any presents, hers, yours, mine... anything... she doesn't care what's inside, she just loves to tear off the paper. The other kids are still learning how to unwrap, but they're getting better.

Lola going to town...

Tut asking you to quit watching him...

Zeus was getting the hang of it, then probably thought he wasn't supposed to make a mess, and gave his best "It wasn't me" look!

Sophie had to think about it for a few minutes... but eventually figured it out!

We have a "1st Christmas" bone ornament for each dog and even though it was technically her 2nd Christmas, Sophie got her very own 1st (I figure since she was only a few weeks old and living on the streets as wild puppy last year, it really didn't count...).

Don't you just love the little bling-bling pink collar on it??!!

There were lots of new toys to play with...

There were lots of great kodak moment pictures to be taken... I caught Zeus napping with his new little hippo friend..

Are you overloaded on doggy cuteness yet??!! Of course, now that I finally downloaded a bazillion photos off the camera, I have several really cute new doggy shots... but I won't force you to see them all today... I'll save some for later. You'll just never know when I'll hit you with some mega cuteness like this...

For anyone who says that you can never have 2 female dogs get along so well in the same household, check out my 2 baby girls snuggling! Aren't they super duper cute??? Enjoy the rest of your doggy day!

Fantastic collage of fotos and now I'm a special fan of Lola 'cause not only is she a lover (like you said on my blog) but she ran into the back of your SUV! I'm seriously LOL :0 And the nap at the end is killer. Gr8 post and happy DOT :)

Nichole,
you have got to be the very best doggy mom I know. They are all very lucky to have you, especially Sophie.

What a cute doggie Christmas!! My babies have that same "dog paw" stocking. So cute!

Dianne said...

How sweet! I love all of the pictures - you can never post too many doggie pictures in my opinion! The last two pics just melt my heart. Your four (FOUR!!!!!) babies are lucky to have you for a mommy.

Great Shots and I love thier Christmas photos, but the 2 girls together just melts my heart! It would snow if my 2 girls laid like that and if it ever happens I hope I am camera ready..lol
Have a great woof day!

LOVE the bling-bling photo. My dogs would be jealous if their Auntie Devon hadn't sent an ornament. I'm definitely going to start that!

Emily said...

My heart just grew three sizes! Especially at the sight of that sweet ornament!

You (and the pups) just outdid yourselves on the excellent photos - you all win the Christmas Cuteness Award 2007!

My 2 girls get along great - us girls gotta stick together!
