Merry Monday Marvels with Santa(s)

It was a very busy weekend here with Mom away most of the weekend for another big dance weekend for Ms. C., our dancerella.  Ms. C. had another outstanding performance, placed third for her new solo, and won another scholarship.  Congrats to our little star!!!

Meanwhile, there was a bit of holiday decorating going on around here.  We thought we would share with you a part of Mom's Santa collection.

She sure does have a lot of Santas.  We are hoping that means lots of pressies for us:)

Here is a close-up.

I am sure you were all excited to see me without my cone in that photo above. Sadly it was for the photo op only.  I wouldn't leave that darn scab alone, so I am re-coned when not under Mom's watchful eye.  BUT I am a happy boy to be able to go out in the yard by myself, sniff around the shrubs and trees, and do a bit of running.  It sure does feel good. Hopefully the Cone Fairy will make that scab disappear for good soon.

Many thanks to Ms. Ann of Zoolatry for our beautiful holiday look!!!

Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

Pee Ess - Mom has a video of Ms. C.'s dance if you would like to see it, just drop Mom an email at theoppack AT gmail DOT com.  She isn't allowed to post it here per dance studio rules.

With all those Santas, there sure be lots of presents for those Woos. Sounds like you are making a little progress by being able to go outside. It won't be long now Lightning. Have a good day.

The best present is going to be when Lightning gets the cone off! But at least he can play in the yard, which means a lot. Fingers still crossed for you, sweet boy.

Congratulations to Ms C! We love all of your Santas and that certainly should mean lots of pressies! Your blog looks so pretty for the holidays!

Millie and Walter said...

You sure have a lot of Santa's in your house. They are all so beautiful. Congrats to Ms. C for dancing so well.

Comedy Plus said...

Your mom has lots of pretty Santa's. I used to collect them too.

Oh no on the cone, Lightening. I guess that bitter stuff didn't work at all. You poor baby.

I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

Have a woof woof day and week. Scritches to all the babies and my very best to your wonderful mom. ♥

Matilda the Boxer said...

Momma has a lot of Santas too!

C.L.W.STEP said...

Wow! That's a big collection! My ghostwriter has a big collection of dollies, which I'm not allowed to touch. Nope! They are not squeaky toys!

Hope that cone comes off soon!

Caren Gittleman said...

Congrats to "Ms.C" that is so wonderful!! Love your decorations! About the cone....awwww....xoxo

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

That is one stubborn scab, isn't it. Oh well, we know who is going to be the best behaved in your house. You can't get up to much mischief with that cone.

The Army of Four said...

That blasted scab!!!
Sorry. I should be nice -- Santa and all. Speaking of whom, we LOVE your mom's collection! I especially like the one of him on the white horse! He looks more "Old World/St Nicolas" like. VERY nice!!!
That is outstanding about Ms C!!! Our mom will be emailing your mom!
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

LOVE your 'howliday' look! Very festive. Maybe Miss Ann can decorate Lightning's cone for the season? 😄 Those darn itchy scabs...hope it starts to heal up so you can run free in the yard.

Bouncing Bertie said...

You'll soon bid rid of that horrid cone Lightening, I'm sure of it.
Meanwhile, remember to be nice to all the Santas.
Toodle pip!

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

Your header is beautiful. Hope you get to be without a cone very soon. Love all the Santa's.

Ruby's Rescued Life said...

Oh no, I am sorry you were re-coned! I sure hope you can leave it behind very soon!

Also, we have that very same BIG Santa in our house!

KB Bear said...

I love the Santa collection. Let's see... if each of those Santas brings each of you a pressie... how many pressies would that be? Lots and Lots!!!

You do need the Cone Fairy to come take away that cone, Lightning. But I am so happy to hear about you in the yard!!!

Pam and Teddy said...

Yay for Dancerina! My Mom has a Santa collection but not THAT many.....that's EPIC. Lightning I'm sorry you have to be re-coned sometimes but sooner or later you will leave that scab ALONE then the cone will be HISTORY!

Hugs, Teddy

Congrats to your dancerella! We love Santas in all sizes. When is he coming to fill our stockings?❤️🎄 Wyatt and Tegan

The Hipster Kitties said...

Charlee: "Wow, look at all those Santas sitting on the table―"
Chaplin: "Just waiting for a cat to knock them over!"
Charlee: "I don't think that's what they're there for, Chaplin."
Chaplin: "Maybe not but that's what I'd do with 'em!"
Charlee: "Sorry you're back in the cone, Lightning. We are sending purrs that you are de-coned for good soon!"

Huskies622 said...

We love your pretty decorations! And we are sorry the cone had to come back for a bit, but you will be all healed soon enough Lightning!
