Tis the Season
« on: December 10, 2011, 10:54:16 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Thought maybe it would be fun to post Christmas photos past or present and that includes your pets. Holly got her first visit with Santa today at the pet store. Was she afraid, nooooooo. Was she hard to get to look at the camera, yes! A squeaky toy finally helped to capture her attention and when she got down the kid dropped the toy and she ran off with it. Guess she thought that was her Xmas toy.

 

Look forward to seeing what photos you have that will bring a smile on everyones face.

Margie


P.S. My cats will get in on the act, but Santa is out unless he wants a blood transfusion.

What a Great picture! Like you, I think the only shots of my cats I'm going to get are in my tree. I personally can't believe it hasn't fallen down yet ;p

Margie, what a funny photo of you and Holly!  (the beard looks great on you)
Christmas is not a big thing over here so I really don't have any funny photos.  I did come across this inflatable Santa at the town hall the other day.  :)

Margie, Holly is so darn precious.  I love the photo. 

I think I'm going to dig around in my archives and see if I can find the Christmas card with the photo of all my babies before I lost so many of them.  It would make me feel good to have a memorial of the ones who are gone, even though several come to visit off and on, and two of them inhabit Scooter and make him act like them (it's really spooky - just like the movie Ghost - except he doesn't talk like them.  No one could talk like Aaron Neville!)

Hannie, sometimes I wish Christmas were more low-key here, as well.  It's such a mad dash for everyone that is isn't fun the way it once was. We've made it more of a time just to be with friends and family and don't do the gift giving extravaganza, and it takes a lot of the pressure off of everyone. Facebook has a campaign going to get back to the simplicity that Christmas once was.  Making gifts and doing simple things.  I hope many people follow some of the great ideas that have been suggested.

Kiska:  hmmmmmmmm?  I get really nervous when you say things like that!

Holly is a real treasure Margie.  I just love those ears!  Unfortunately we donít have any Christmas photos of our beloved little Cairn terrier that is no longer with us.  Jake loved opening gifts and no matter how we tried to disguise them in boxes and paper he could always pick out which ones were his when it came time to reveal the contents.

Glenna I too wish for a more low-key holiday season.  My best memories of Christmas when I was a kid are of warm fires, hot cocoa, sledding, snowmen and visiting with cousins I only got to see a couple of times a year.

Here is a photo my daughter took after she placed the antlers on our dear dog's head. This will be our second Christmas without our Lady.

Thanks everyone, but Hannie you get a lump of coal in your stocking for the beard remark.

Tess, what a cute picture of Lady, but it makes you want to hug her and say: "Poor Baby!"

If any of you have photos of you at a younger age at Christmas---post them.

Tess, that picture gave me a lump in my throat.  What a wonderful dog!

Margie, you're lucky Santa gave that adorable pup back.   That... um... was Santa right?  It wasn't really you in a beard, was it?  I mean, Hannie has a point.... the likeness is uncanny, but....

We have too many missing beloved animals this year.  I'm without 7 of my babies, and since I'm being "grandma-napped" tomorrow and hauled north to Williston, I won't have time to post photos until probably after Christmas.  Somehow this conspiracy cropped up last night and my beloved daughter-in-law is driving down to haul me away for a week or so.  Hence, should I not get a chance to steal their laptop for a while during my stay up in north Fla., I want to wish all of my wonderful OPR pals a glorious holiday and lots of happiness and fun with family and friends.

Hugs a million.

GK, have a safe trip and enjoy your Christmas. As to Hannie and PatW, all I can say is that you two will be getting a lump of coal in each of your stockings. BAD!

Hannie, it will be wrapped in an old sock and not with a red ribbon---if you and PatW are good, the sock will be clean, if not . . .   ::)
