Abuse! in the name of Christmas, whatever that is

Wrooo, everypuppy and kitty! I hope everyone had a good Howl-o-ween! I survived it; The Girl turned the tv up really loud, put on the white noise machine, turned on the space heater that she curses because the fan always runs, and we hid in the basement. It wasn't so bad.

You can see that I really enjoyed the dog friendly chocolate invented by Joe Stains, and delivered by Tanner and Scooter. Many of you have commented on how much the chocolate affected me; it sure did! I had a grrrrrreat time! Thanks, guys! (Hey, Joe, did anydoggy else have such a strong reaction? Just wonderin'.)

I am negotiating with The Girl about my access to my friends' bloggies. We don't seem to be making it around as much as we did at first. She says that we'll maybe get there twice a week, which I am protesting as UNFAIR. Just because she has the opposable thumbs, she thinks she's in charge.

Something else that happened last week was that I had to pose for Christmas pictures. The Girl isn't very creative, and she's pretty lazy, so she thought that the easiest thing to do would be to get some Christmas-themed material and pose me on it. For a variety of reasons, this did not work as she had planned.

First, I was NOT impressed. I'm working those Laser Eyes, but they have no effect against The Girl.

Note that the fabric has white and green (?) snowflakes on it. And I'm on the couch. Like I am in all of my indoor pics.

I don't know how she could keep going after this one:

She didn't know which fabric would work better, so she bought two patterns. I am pouting. Just look at how unhappy I am. If my lower lip would stick out like the human kids' do, that's what I'd be doing.

"Fear for your life, Girlie! I won't take this abuse forever!"

I am desperately sad, and close to giving up.

Aha! That sad look was just a diversion, to make you sad, Girlie, so I could make my escape. I'm SO leaving!

These are the best of the bunch. The Girl has been defeated! The Christmas pics are no more!

Hi Dannan, Sorry, Momma's been limiting the blog time too. If only I had opposable dewclaws...

Those pictures look like TORTURE! At least The Girl didn't make you dress up for Halloween, right? And you go to spend time together in your happy windy and warm happy place.

hi Dannan, we feel your pain, buddy. our mom claims to be busy and doesn't blog with us enough either. we feel so sad that we don't get to visit all of our friends all of the time.

your christmas photos are not that bad. we think there were a couple of good ones in there. our mom is lame in that area too. we have no idea what kind of torture she has in store for us this year.

Hello, Dannan! We know you didn't like the picture taking, but you sure look good, regardless. :) And, sorry, but, we do like pictures of you! (Your collar's awesome, btw.)

Thanks for visiting our blog!

Hi Dannan
I'm sorry you're mom's into the Xmas spirit already. Its only going to get worse over the next 2 months. Maybe you can talk The Girl into using one of those pictures so you don't have to be abused all over again.

Love Ruby

Hi, Dannan!
The same happens here every time my mom tries to take christmas themed pictures! I don't want to cooperate! She has to do something magic!
Kisses and hugs

Oh Dear Dannan! I have not yet had to pose for holiday pictures, although I have seen pictures of Sprocket and Roscoe with antlers and santa hats on!!! This is atroshush! If I were you I would tell your momma that you want to go on a field trip and sit on santas lap for a picture!
