That picture just makes me smile :) Yes there he is my little Jack who is now 26.4 lbs. of happiness - growing at a rapid pace.....still hoping we are not mixed with St. Friggen Bernard... The one who is happy to see me at every waking moment (his or mine). He was really excited when we brought the xmass tree inside....luckily for us he squats to pee (like a girl dog) and doesn't realize that boy dogs hike their legs and pee on trees and everything else they come across to smell ( thank you doggy gods that he was fixed early)!!
I took an old fire place screen and made a doggy/ cat gate to block off the tree.... Ok ok I know that NOTHING would keep the cats from leaping ever so gingerly over my newly created barrier.....or walking along the back of the couch and on to the windowsill jumping down only to tease the dog while they poked their paws through the openings ... with a "Hahahaha we can get back here and you can't taunt" but this year they don't have much interest in the tree ... that could be because they are to busy leaping onto higher ground to keep away from Jack!!!
Just to be on the safe side I made sure all MY PIG ornaments were hung HIGH in the tree (just incase any fell we wouldn't want THOSE ones eaten) and hung stockings with care...and to top it off - doused everything with "Apple Bitter Spray" so he wouldn't eat everything!!! And let me just say.... that shit works!!! Jack smells the stockings and walks away... smells all the xmass decorations ...and walks away ......well then he decided he'd eat his doggy bed while no one was looking!!!
Side note: Santa - Jack needs a new bigger bed - he outgrew (and ate his) old one.....
Have you noticed that every year it's a WTF ...how did x-mass get here so fast?? It's on the calendar the same time every friggen year!! Same day ...never changing .......but now it's like a speeding train...a speeding bullet ...oh no it's just x-mass!!!
I could pretty much just hit "DITTO" from last year's blog post the only difference is that it's 20 days till x-mass and not 5! But it is after 3am and my anxiety is through the roof, and not only is my craft table a hot mess, but I have also exploded over onto the bar ....my area is so outta control I had my glue gun plugged in at the Hubster Coffee Bar - which by the look on his face and the twitching eye is a NO NO ...(and it was only for a quick second) but still his eye was twitching and the brow was arched and he wanted to know WHY I was there .....with the glue gun.... Well duh...because I needed a plug that I could find!!! Hummm... he has offered to help clean OUT the craft area.... no no no .... that wont be necessary ...I 'll get to it ...eventually!!Before xmass actually arrives ...which at the speed it's traveling will be ...like tomorrow!!
