Arrival Story:
Ebony first caught my eye when she was 4 weeks old. We had decided to look at a litter of puppies. I knew she was the one when she went bounding after the food bowl and jumped in. She decided that the best place for her meal was standing in the middle of the food.

She is one of the best pals anyone could ask for. Ebony loves to take care of people when they are sick making her one of the best nurses I know. While one of our friends was staying with us, he had become quite sick with the flu and could not get out of bed. Ebony decided she should check on him so she nudged the door open to his room. She brought him her stuffed animal and put it on his bed next to him, then sat down next to him and stayed with him all day. What a caretaker! Sadly, Ebony left us on December 6th. After a short battle, she passed with her family surrounding her. She certainly made the best of her 13 years (which is darn good for a large dog!)filling our lives with love, silliness, and lots of slobery kisses.

Well, now that the holidays are over, mom thought it might be a good idea to give me a haircut. I promised I wouldn't go run in all the sticky balls and foxtails but she wasn't having it. So now I have my summer cut in winter-ugh! I hate getting shaved...sometimes, I can run away when I see mom get out the clippers. But I always forget how hard it is to hide a 90 pound me!

My holidays were pretty much the same as they are every year. Everyone comes over, and of course I get lots of love. This year, Buttons and I got some of our favorite cookies-ya know, the ones that look and smell like people cookies with the cream in the center (drooling), tasty! This year, I had some friends over for a 10 day stay. Its nice having them over cause we can play all the time. I always miss them when they go but I guess theres always next time.


It's Almost Christmas!

Today was Christmas picture day. My girl thought it might be a good idea to take my picture by the tree but that didn't work. So we moved outside. We decided that the gingerbread house would be a great spot for our holiday pictures. I was trying so hard to focus but the neighbor was far more interesting to look at. I really wanted to go say hi to him but my family doesn't like me going in the street. After pictures, Buttons and I both got our favorite doggie biscotti cause we were so good! Buttons and I also had to put on our Christmas jingle collars. Luckily we don't have to wear them all the time-just for picutres and when company comes over on Christmas. I don't really like wearing that coller cause it is so noisy. Other than the collar, Christmas is my favorite time of year. Last year, my family had prime rib and left the ribs on the kitchen counter. I snuck into the kitchen and stole one of the bones off the counter when no one was looking. I managed to munch on the bone for a while before they found out. They were nice enough to let me finish the bone! (Check out my holiday picture!)
