Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas so far. Vin and Steven are taking a naps, so I thought I quickly share our Christmas morning with you.

Yesterday I scrambled to get all the present wrapped and labeled. I don't know why I bothered labeling them because just about everything is for Vin. One of his presents was a book about Clifford the big red dog. I read it to him, but it seems Shelby is not impressed by Clifford at all.

Shelby was a good girl this year. She put up with an awful lot of shenanigans from her brother, and took it in stride. Let's not forget Vin's new "poke Shelby in the butt" game. Yeah, and she didn't rip his face off for that. stead, Shelby would give him kisses. You are a very good girl Shelby.

Santa brought her a gross stinky hoof in her stocking, and she loves it. I let her gnaw on it behind the gate in the kitchen so that Vin would not bother her, or try to chew it himself.

But sometimes the best laid plans go awry, and I forgot to close the doggie section of the gate.

Christmas 2009: the break in

You can see the progression here. Thankfully, he didn't go after the stinky hoof, but he did try to grab the towel from the other side of the gate to get the hoof closer to him.

Shelby also got a squeaky giraffe which she loves. She was moving too fast so we didn't get a picture of her with it, but it was quickly slobbered, and Shelby had also ripped the smile off its face. It's lying on the train tracks in the photo below. Let's hope Christmas train is taking the day off.

Christmas 2009

Suspiciously, the giraffe has not been seen since, making this the fastest disappearing gift in our household, ever. I'm sure he's around here somewhere. Probably just hiding from the menacing pug.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

My Mushu loves those hooves. You're right, though, they stink like nobody's business. What can we do, though. We're slaves to our puggie's desires.

Happy New Year Winnie and family!
I wanted to share my favorite pics of Shelby (in no particular order): Fate of squeaky lion, pug vs squirrel, the unimpressed meeting and of course... poochador. =)

Thanks for sharing with us!

Happy New Year to Winnie and Family.
I think the coming Chinese New Year
will be Year of the Tiger. Is this correct?
Looking forward to more Shelby and Company.
