Thanks for gathering these dates Catherine Krzywicki!

My favorite Santa Paws Picture:

Happy Holidays!

You know you “might” be a crazy dog lady when you buy Christmas gifts for your dogs, hide them from them and then get mad when they go upstairs and “see” them…

Well, I guess me being a crazy dog lady wasn’t really a question to begin with, but it was still amusing to me. I just love my pups and want them to have a great Christmas – is that so wrong?

So far, we’ve had a really great start to our holiday season. This year, for the first time, we went to get our pictures taken with Santa Paws. Santa Paws was actually our friend Catherine, which was pretty much the main reason I went (other than knowing it would also result in a really great picture). I am so pleased with the photos!  Roscoe looks so much more comfortable than he did when we went to see the Easter Bunny (also Catherine).

And, forever immortalized on an ornament. I don’t think Hunter loved his reindeer ears…

This year I also got Hunter and Roscoe their very own stockings from the Naughty Mutt shop on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheNaughtyMutt?ref=l2-shopheader-name

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season with your family this year, whatever form that family may be! Hunter, Roscoe and I wish you peace, love and happiness!

Mark Your Calendars: Santa Paws!

Believe it or not, but I have never gotten Hunter’s picture taken with Santa. I think this is the year that is finally going to change! I’m still not convinced he’s going to sit calmly and take a good photo, but I want to give it a try. Plus, when you consider that most Santa Paws events benefit local rescue groups (and that there’s an event pretty much every weekend from now til Christmas) there really is no excuse to not get a photo taken.

Here is a roundup, by date, of upcoming Santa Paws events. Mr. Paws is going to be very busy guy over the next month!
