Happy Chinese New Year and V-Day

We hope everyone had a happy Valentines Day, and if you're just not into it this year, you're in luck, because you can celebrate Chinese New Year instead.

We went to my mom and dad's for New Years Eve for dinner. Lots of dishes with 8 lucky ingredients in them. We also had chicken and fish, which mom tells us is mandatory lucky food for the new year. Vincent collected a bunch of red envelopes, which were not cars, so he didn't care for them and tried to feed them to Shelby. Noooooo!!!! Luckily we intercepted in time, and they're going into his college fund, making me the mama who is no fun at all, but he'll thank me later for this. Although she missed out on eating all the new years envelopes, Shelby got a  bone that night, and was really pleased about it. 

In the evening, Steven, Vin, and I went out for dinner. The restaurant didn't allow dogs, but we made it up to Shelby later by getting her some Frosty Paws. I've seen them in the freezer section at the store, and have been meaning to get some for her.

It went down a little something like this...

Vin and Shelby are playing chase.


I call out, "Sheeeeeellllby! Treeeeeat tiiiiiiime!"


Shelby immediately loses Vin an comes running to the kitchen.

This is her "I'm ready for my treat" face.


And there's the Frosty Paw ice cream treat for doggies. Nothing much to look at, but Shelby seemed to enjoy it. This is one of the few treats she can't just woof down in 5 seconds.

Happy Chinese New Year and V-Day everyone!

It is like Vin is Shelby's most wonderful toy!!! Vin is growing and so cute even his "ugly" face. I laughed so much on that one. That will be priceless to give to the future Mrs Vin.

We appreciate EVERY post so much. Winnie, thank you for feeding us on your wonderful Vin/Shelby page.

Poor Vin...those red envelopes must have seemed as interesting as a pack of socks.
