Tuesdays With Tag - Merry Christmas...

 Merry Christmas, Everybody!
I'm so lucky that my post falls on Christmas this year.
I get to share a little of my holiday spirit with you!

Mom took a picture of me wearin' Dad's red tie.
She told me that Fezzik wore his red tie once, too and
that only her special boys get to wear it. I'm pretty lucky, huh?
 I helped Mom and Dad decorate the tree this year.
Mom said she wanted to put all the beautiful ornaments she received
from her friends this year on our tree. I think it looks pretty festive.
 Mom's friend, Miss Fay made the gingerbread girl and her friend from
Vermont, Miss Denise sent a whole box of felted acorn ornaments with 
real caps! If you look real close, you can even see a corgi ornament that
Mom bought last year. Isn't it cute? I think it's my favorite one.
Look! Right in the middle of everything is Miss Shelly's
snowman "Sparkle"! Then, more felted acorns and pretty lights.
 Miss Kathy, from the Paneras group made the snowman, 
and Miss Joni handpainted the quilt cottage. Down on the
bottom of the picture you can just see a little bit of Mom's
cute little bunny ornament. (I think I'd like to play with that one!)
 Miss Joni also made this Santa for Mom. It's really a wine bottle
cover. She gave Mom the bottle of wine that makes it stand up, too.
It's called "Lucky Duck". Mom told me that Miss Joni loves ducks.
What a coincidence! I do, too!

The ceramic tree was made by Mom's grandma about thirty years ago.
Mom carefully packs it every year so that it doesn't break.
 There's one other Santa on display. He's got a couple of reindeer
with him, but Mom said that none of them are Rudolph. No red noses!
 I already opened my presents for this year.
Mom got me a new stuffed animal. I love squeaky squirrels!
I'm gonna try my best not to de-stuff this squirrel before New Years.
So far, so good!

Well, I want to wish everyone a Blessed Christmas and I hope you
 were good enough to get every little thing you asked Santa for this year.

I also hope that by next year, all the dogs without homes are adopted
and have a loving, warm place to celebrate with their forever families.

I'll be back to wish you a Happy New Year next week, but 'til then...
"More Waggin' and Less Barkin'!"

Sear Tag,
Mama said I could start doing the comments on Tuesday because it was your day and it makes more sense dog talking to dog. I didn't have a bow tie but Mama got me a dress. It has a pretty ruffled skirt but just on my back because, well, you know it wouldn't be very practical if it went all around me. I felt very dainty in it. I didn't get any toys. I guess I'm not as hard on them as you are, though I like to think I am. I have a Teddy Bear named Buster and a squirrel named Rocky. Mama's gifts from Daddy were really for me though. WE got a front carrier that has a flat padded shelf like bottom that Mama can wear, I go inside it and now I never have to be put down. That's the way I like things. And Daddy got Mama a booster seat for the car for me. Mama was so thrilled. I don't quite understand because really they are gifts for me, but she started crying so I had to wash her face good with my tongue. Mama has been real sick with pneumonia. She has been on the antibiotics for 7 days now and isn't much better. Daddy is talking about taking her back in. I don't like it when they go there because I can't go too. Mama was outside with me a couple of weeks ago and she was looking up in the trees. Suddenly she shouted at me, "Bitabit, these are oak trees!" I thought she had gone crazy. Of course they are oak trees. I've been munching on the acorns since Fall. Well anyway it seemed to take her by surprise in a funny way and she told me that the first time I wrote you I was to tell you that we have 15 oak trees so that you can tell your mom. She said it could be a drawing card, but I'm not sending you a card or crayons so I don't know what she is talking about. Now I'll leave you with news of something exciting that happened here today. Here in Texas we had a white Christmas. The morning started with a thunderstorm, then we had hail, and then about 10:00 A.M. it started snowing great big fluffy flakes. They stayed on the ground until we have about 3 inches of snow. It makes my paws very cold. Mama says Corgi paws have more fur. She says that you just plain have a whole lot more fur than I do. She said I may look furry, but actually there isn't much fur there it just fluffs out. Fluff doesn't keep you warm in the snow. Mama says next up is a coat for me. She even has some material already she can use. I hope you have a great day after Christmas. Mama says to send her love to your mom

Hi Tag,
I hope you had a great Christmas and, unlike our Welsh collies, Rolly and Quango, didn't eat more than a good dog should.....
Big Christmassy pats from Jenni, in the land of your ancestors, Wales.

Love to you from Sophie , Henry and Bruce who are busy with their new bones.
Give mom a hug!
