My first snail mail Christmas Card, and The Snow is All My Fault

Wroooooooo, efurrybody! Hope all my American furends had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of eatables! The Girl said that the reason we had no turkey yesterday is that we celebrated Thanksgiving in October. I fail to see what that has to do with anything! We still could have had turkey!!

I got my furst Christmas card in the snail mail! It is from Simba. I was so ecstatic that I had to go Upside Down!

Please ignore the hooman leg and slipper at the bottom. The Girl says she's done enough secretary stuff for me today, and she refused to do any photo-editing. I am skeptical of this, however. The secretary stuff she did for me earlier today was stuff she had PROMISED to have done by Tuesday - writing on and addressing my snail mail Christmas cards! She FINALLY got them done today, and will mail them tomorrow. TOMORROW, Girlie!

I also got quite a few e-cards, which I will bark about in my next post. Hopefully tomorrow.

In other news, it is all my fault that it has been snowing since this morning. It was snowing when we got up at 7:00 am, and it is STILL snowing! That's NINE straight hours of snow! Very unusual for here.

The reason (The Girl) says it's my fault is because I just commented on Bolo's bloggy yesterday that we didn't have any snow. She likes the snow, but really hates how people drive in it. And she hates shovelling it, too. So she likes winters that are not snowy. Except for Christmas. She likes a White Christmas.

I, on the other hand, was SO EXCITED that I ran back and forth (like a maniac, according to The Girl) and back and forth and back and forth! I made The Girl take pictures.

Here's me on the way out...

And on the way back in....

Back out...

And me and Lexi on the way back in again. (Well, all you can see is my tail. The Girl sometimes misses the picture she thinks she's going to take.)

Khavana is the worst couch potato you can imagine. She didn't come out with us. She never does! She only wants to go outside first thing in the morning, and right after supper. She totally misses out.

Once I had done my running (I always have to race back and forth, and back and forth when I'm excited!), I stopped to smell the snow.

And then we have the series of pictures where The Girl was trying to get a shot of me covered in snow...

We didn't stay out long enough for me to get really snowy, though. The Girl picked up our newspapers, and we went back inside.

I have the feeling that there was something I was going to mention in this post, but I can't seem to remember it. My memory is becoming as bad as The Girl's! BOL!

The Girl is going to Vancouver for a furry quick trip on Wednesday. I told her that she should visit Sparky and Lizzie, but she says she doesn't think there will be time. She and The Roomie are going to a Great Big Sea concert on Wednesday night, and coming back the next day. I am going to stay with my Nanny and Papa overnight. I've never done that before, so I'm a little nervous. So is The Girl. She is really such a big softy. Always before, I've stayed with The Roomie when The Girl has gone out of town. But I guess I can't do that this time, since The Roomie is going, too!

So far, the plan for the weekend is for The Girl and I to go over to Nanny and Papa's for Saturday and Sunday night. The Girl has to work at the SPCA Craft Fair on Sunday, so she thought staying with them while she was gone would be a good way to ease into things. But she keeps looking out the window at the snow, and saying things like, it better stop soon! We have had a little snow once earlier this winter, but it was melted by noon. The Girl says hoomans drive really dumb during the first big snowfall. I think she's trying to get out of going to mail my Christmas cards.

There doesn't seem to be turkey again tonight. I am disappointed, because I made it clear yesterday that we can have turkey when it's not Thanksgiving! If The Girl leaves the house tomorrow, I'll tell her to stop at the grocery store and get some!

We love you Dannan! You're so cool....and the snow looks great, we haven't had anymore but that little devil Jack Frost has been running around again! Hope The Girl has a safe journey and a good trip, and I bet you'll be spoiled rotten at your Nanny & Papa's house (maybe you'll get some turkey!?) See you when you get back.
Slobbers xx
Oh, pee-ess, our Mum loved the Photofunia picture of you in an eye so much she did one of Alfie!

Hi, Dannan!
Sure is nice to start getting your cards! I am waiting for the first one but our postal service is soooo bad!
Snow??? I am not so sure I'd like it! Too cold for me!
Have fun with Nanny and Papa! Tell your Girl to have fun too!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Dannan:

You look furry frisky running up and down in the snow. I might like to do that EXCEPT . . .No Snow. We live in Minnniesoda where there is always early snow, but not this year and both my Mom and I like it a whole lot! So come on, put your magic to work and brew us up some.

Kisses all around,

Hi Dannan,
My mom is a yankee and loves snow but it never snows in north Ga (except once) so she's so jealous of your snow! That looked like so much fun for you to run and run and run. I hope you have a good stay at your grandpawrents house.

love & wags,

Have fun at Nanny's this weekend and tell the Girl to have a good time at her concert.
See you soon.
Love Ruby

hey Dannan, wow! look at that snow. we are totally jealous. we LOVE the snow. it's so much fun to play in and all of the good smells that get under the snow are irresistible. you are really lucky to have that great snow at your house. do you think you could send a little bit to us?


Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Man, you look like you were having so much fun in the snow. Maybe breaking speed records!! (AND looking handsome while doing it!! *blush*. I am still not sure about this flirting stuff, but apparently Lacie is trying to fix me up- help!!)
I, Sunny, am the only one who enjoys snow. We had some last winter and I loved it. Mom says she had enough as a kid to last her forever!!
Mom may be emailing your mom later after her trip. She is getting in a dither over cards. And Scooter and I are not helping with the photo process. (hahahaha)
Tell your girl to be careful. If you lay enough guilt on, you may get your turkey yet!!

Bobby said...
