Monday Mischief: Antlers and Cake?

Saturday was all about good intentions... the humans were heading out for the day.  We stopped by the post office to finally mail the Christmas cards, went out to breakfast (despite Lola's instance that if anyone was going out to breakfast, she had better be included - shhh!), picked up a wreath and headed to AC Moore for the fake flowers needed to re-do the basket on top of Nana's headstone.  Sounds all fine and dandy, right?  Enter the mischief...

While while standing in line to pay at AC Moore, I just happened to notice the $1.99 reindeer antlers... and they even had friggin' jingle  bells on them!  Of course, my fellow doggy mamas know, I could.not.resist... 

Zeus: Ho Ho WOOF! #dogs #Christmas #antlers #love #bigdog #dogstagram
"Yup, that's Mama's new Facebook profile pic.  sigh" - Zeus 

Everyone tried the antlers on, but I only managed a couple of quickie cell phone shots of Zeus and Tut (notice Lola glaring in the background).  Despite the protest, we will have an antler photo shoot late this week.

As if that wasn't enough human mischief for one weekend, the next day they we had the nerve to go out without the kids again... and we got to visit foster baby Lambchop (yes, I do still owe you an official Lamby post... she was with us for less than one week before finding her forever home in Maine)!

Got to visit our former #foster #puppy Lambchop today! She is doing amazing with her forever family! #rescue #adoptdontshop #dogs #love #saintbernardmix #happydog
 
I am so happy to report that shy little Lambchop is doing wonderful and has settled in very nicely with her forever family!  It's been two weeks since they picked her up and we were so excited to see her, as she was to see us!  She's already getting bigger and is now sporting a really pretty new pink and purple harness... such a chic little girl!

I do miss that adorable little nose and super sweet face, but am so happy that she found a perfect forever home with 2 boys to play ball and wrestle with.  They are clearly so happy to have a pup to grow up with -- a win, win for everyone! 
 
At least before the humans got into all this mischief over the weekend, the Lapdogs got C-A-K-E for Sophie's birthday.  I promise more birthday shots soon, but we'll end today with these...

Yes we all understand your impulse buy. We all need something new to torture the pups with at holiday time.

I love the eyes on Lambchop. What a
cutie.

That looks like a great birthday celebration. We can't wait for all the photos.

Yay! So many good things! Antlers and adoptions and happy cake time! My dog has that exact same pair. She also has that exact same expression when I put them on her. Funny, that. ;-)

Well, guys...I gave up fighting the silly hats and head gear and it really works out well for mom and I. I just wear what she puts on me for a few minutes, she does her pics, she is happy, I get snuggles and I am back on my way - maybe you should give it a try. Stopping by from the blog hop to say woof!
