Sassy Sunday - (12-19-10)

Chili and me with Santa

"Oh, the weather outside if frightful".  It's cold.  And there's new snow today on top of what's left of the ice from last week.  Just a dusting, but enough to hide the ice so I slip and slide out there.  But that's ok.  I'm an inside dog.  I'd rather be on the couch snoozin' anyway.  Unless there's a squirrel in the bird feeder.

The three of us, Ginger, Chili, and I, went to see Santa.  See someone missing in the pic?  Yup.  Ginger.  She would have nothing to do with getting her picture taken with Santa.  You see, Santa has a Y chromosome.  That makes him a man.  And Ginger doesn't like those Y-chromosome people until she's had a chance to warm up to them and make sure they are ok.  She's always been that way.  Even though she's been in this pack since she was 7 weeks old.  She did come with a wound on her leg that is now a scar.  So maybe a man was mean to her way back then.  Who knows.

We've got the house back to ourselves at the moment.  We had a bunch of company last week.  I couldn't tell you about it before because it was a surprise.  You see, my Aunt Bambi is about to turn 40.  (I won't make it that long)  So the family planned her a surprise party.  People that are kin to our pack came from all over!  One came from Ohio, two from Chicago, two from Michigan, and three from Nevada!  It was great fun to have all these people in the house to love on.  

Here I am listening to Uncle Joe tell me how wonderful I am.

And here's Aunt Bambi.  She was soooo surprised!

Well, the kids are all excited about Christmas coming this week.  And I have to say I've enjoyed all the hustle and bustle.  But now it's time for a nap.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sounds like Ginger is a pretty smart cookie. I always tell my girls to do the same thing when they meet a boy! LOL

Looks like a bunch of fun!
