All I Want For Christmas

So now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, Christmas has arrived in full force. Mom and I took a walk downtown today, and all of the lights were up, decorations were everywhere... It was as if Thanksgiving came and went only so that Christmas could come... Humans are so odd. Whatever, I like Christmas. Mom put my Christmas collar on, the one with dog bones made to look like candy canes. It's quite festive, the two-leggeds get a kick out of it. We spent the better part of the day baking, some dog cookies made with cranberries left over from the holiday, some banana nut bread. I like when we bake :) Other than that and our walk, it's been pretty uneventful around here. I had a therapy dog visit a couple of weeks ago, so I have one this Tuesday. We didn't get to stay very long last time since my mom had a performance for the musical, but now that that is over we will be able to stick around. We haven't been able to take any pictures since the camera has been broken, but we are returning it soon so nice pictures should be on the rise again, soon. While we are on Thanksgiving break one of our assignments was to get our Christmas lists done. I help mom with hers and usually some of her list has to do with me. These are the things I want the most, and I might get some more if I am an especially good boy. The first picture, the 'Gourdo', looks like SO much fun in the water! But lets be honest, what isn't fun in the water? The thing underneath it is a food holder for when we go on camping and hiking trips and such. It holds 25 cups of food. Pretty nifty. The collars are from Earth Dog. They make hemp collars, I have the 'fat moe' one already, I don't know which one I want now. So many to choose from! Then I definitely want a dog pack for hiking, that would be really cool! And mom wants the collapsible crate, I don't think it's that bad, but why a crate? I like my crate at home, and that's it... Maybe that one will grow on me because it means we are going somewhere..... Well, I hope everyone had a great holiday full of yummy food and grrreat time spent with family and friends. I got some special dinner with gravy and carrots and cranberry sauce and a little turkey... Mmmm.... I am going to see my friends Flicka and Auntie Chris tomorrow for a fun play date. I love my romps with Flicka, we have so much fun together!!! I'll update soon, hopefully with pictures with some sort... Have a grrreat week! Bark to you later!

First Therapy Dog Visit and Dogs On the Diag

Hello everyone! Sorry it has been a while since I updated last, but we've been pretty busy! I had my very first therapy dog visit the other day! It was so great! It was both our Halloween visit, as well as our celebration party in honor of 12 years of pet therapy at Crittenton. How awesome is that?!?! It went really well, I was a very good boy and did very well with all of the patients and staff. It was a little hectic at first with all of the people and dogs in one tiny room, but it was better at the end. I visited ICU and joint surgery recoveries. I showed off all my tricks and was especially gentle with the people in bed. Yay for me :) We took a big group picture of all of the dogs, it's down below. I got tired and rested my head, which everyone thought was quite cute. I am such a ham :P There are also a lot of pictures from Dogs on the Diag. I went to that at U of M and represented TDI. It was good to hang out with all of my old PAWS friends. Not much else has happened. My mom went to Disney World with this cancer group last week so I stayed with grandpa and Bentley. I am CRAZY there. I just like to play and I know I can get away with stuff :P Ruh-roh!Well, I'll bark to you all later!
