Yes, We Believe in Santa!

It was a truly magical Christmas!

I, Miss Persephone, took my station directly in front of the tree, in anticipation of the arrival of that notorious dwarf with his bundle of squeaky-toys and treats.

Buster chose to guard the egg nog in the kitchen.

Bailey, our ├╝ber-mom, provided some moral support on this occasion by licking my ears.

Oh, Ecstasy! The Bearded One cometh!

Our St. Nicolas is a bit Druidic. He treasures the things of the forest. Like us wolf-children.

Each year, he brings lots of cool things for Buster, me, and the assorted humans who share our house. Mom got lots of clothes and a portable DVD player--Dad got a cool infrared water-temperature indicator for his flyfishing--and we superior canine beings got lots of things to chew on!

Bailey DOES get a little manic when opening her presents (as well as those belonging to anyone else!). She says it's good therapy. Hey, if it works for her, that's fine. Anyway, Bailey's our Official Present-Opener!

It DOES exact a certain toll, however.

In the end, she always has to be carried from the scene, exhausted!

How do you like my new earrings?

Christmas Morning ALWAYS has to end with the ritual licking of ears and the wishing of good cheer and Canine-Consciousness to our lesser human friends.

Bailey is "in recovery" 'til next year!

Merry Christmas!

There's nothing better than present-opening, you're right. Add cold temperature outside, holidays for mum, and tons of delicious food and cookies. It's pawfect, isn't it?

You are happy you are a threesome, I have to do the ear-licking with my human mom, she does not really get it though...

Looks like you all had a FABulous Christmas. I'm very into ear cleaning too... just started doing that for Stella (and she LOVES it). Except for the deliciously gooberish look on Buster's face, it's hard to tell you all apart. Any references for the uninitiated to tell?

Goober love,
