Getting ready for Santa


Well, it isn't quite the "night before Christmas" but it is getting close. So today we are getting ready for the big night.



Some of us were nestled all snug in our beds.






And some had settled in "for a long winter's nap".






And some of us had "visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads."





Hey, I had a tough day at the spa today.

And so now we are waiting for that jolly old elf with the eyes that twinkle, the dimples so merry, the cheeks like roses, the nose like a cherry, the droll little mouth, the beard white as snow, and the little round belly that shakes like a bowlful of jelly. We are so ready to hear him say, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"




We are all set for the arrival of our human brother Chris and family. They are coming in tomorrow from rain-soaked Los Angeles. The next week is going to be a very busy one here with all of our human brother and sisters and all the little bipeds. We aren't going to be able to keep up with the blogs for a while, but we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. You all need to stay well, no sickies, no problems. We don't want to miss any big news, but we just know we aren't going to be visiting for a while after tonight. We are really worried right now about our good pal Luke, the Golden Boy. We have heard he is sick and has had a setback. Please, sweet Luke, feel better. And the same for Lorenza, and all of our other furry furiends and family who need the power of the paw. And many thanks again for all the wonderful thoughts and suggestions for Phantom. He ate last night, at least a little bit. We will keep working at it.

Happy Holidays to All!!!

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

You are just the best looking and cleanest bunch of doggies I have ever seen....you look extra sweet when you're sleeping!

What a great shot of the three of you in front of the Christmas tree... surely you must be the best Christmas gifts your mom and dad could want...I know I am my mommy's bestest gift!

Love you,
Gizzy

Aw you all look so adorable - and so ready for the big day (or night really, since Santa comes when you sleep at night). We bet he will be bringing you lots of wonderful treats!

And we understand about the visiting - mom said it is going to be tough for us too. We are in agreement with you that everyone just needs to stay happy and healthy and hopefully nothing big comes up! We don't know Luke but will stop by and send some purrs!!

We hope you have a wonderful time with your family all there - Merry Christmas!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

We know Santa is going to come visit you all. We just hope he comes here first because we have a feeling he's not going to want to leave after seeing your adorable faces!

Merry Christmas Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, Momster and Dad! Enjoy your time with family!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

You SHOULD rest up...the next week sounds like you will be VERY busy! Don't worry, I got a peek at Santa's list and you are ALL on the "been very good" side...so expect a little somthin' as they say. We wish you a great joyful ruckus filled with Christmas love and togetherness as well as time for quietly contemplating how wonderful life is. Peace.

Pippa said...

Hello Pups, I am with Ciara and TD on those positions. Top class.

Just been reading back about Phantom not wanting his food. I don't like too much protein based food, and if I have stuff with my biscuits (think you call it kibble) I like nice vegetables. Not broad beans, they are ok raw, but I don't like them cooked.

I insisted on having my food brought to my sofa recently but Master and Misery have discovered I am poorly. I haven't written about it because I don't feel like it just yet, but maybe Phantom is poorly too. I had a blood test and have a nasty infection. I hope Phantom is ok and doesn't have nasties.

Catch you all in the new year.

Pippa xx
