Poker Night!

I am so happy! Daddy is having poker night tonight. Mommy plays usually but she is not feeling well. But Mommy helped Daddy finish decorating the house for our guests. Daddy and Mommy and me when it got dark put the outside lights on and I got to look at the house (Daddy carried me out and held me. It was cold out!). They took me out last year too to see the decorations but some things broke so Daddy went out today to get a big light up reindeer and some light sets. And we have a Snoopy (my friend! I have a famous friend!) who is dressed like the Red Baron sitting on top of his house. But he will not light up. Snoopy is my Mommy's favorite so Daddy will be scouring the area for a new Snoopy. But I love the lights. As a matter of fact, instead of leaving lights on at night, Daddy put motion lights on our stairs. Sometimes I just lay in front of the light on the stair to it will light up.

Daddys's friends are cool! They love to pet me and play with me. I love when they come over. I know the dog that lived her before me, or so I have heard, you had to be careful of. She nipped sometimes and growled even though she knew the boys. Weird huh? Me? I would not hurt a fly. In fact, Mommy and Daddy laugh at me because in the summer sometimes you get a bug in the house. I see one maybe on the floor and do not eat him or hurt him like Mommy and Daddy say other dogs do. I just study him and see where he is going. Or she. Study he or she to see what this creature is all about.

But I was so happy to see all of Daddy's friends. Like I said the other day, this is a great time of year people popping in and out and lots of love and pets for me.

Everyone should be over next week again. I hope I can play. Texas Holdem seems fun and if you explain it to me, I am sure I can get it!

Kisses to you all!

It's Almost Daddy's Vacation!

On the Mommy front, she is downstairs today but still not feeling well. I have to take good care of her. I am also editing for her today. (I am on the arm of the rocker while her laptop is on her lap). I keep getting elbowed but then I get kisses. I am just trying to be a good editor.

The OUTSIDE decorations are inside. It has been very windy out for a few days. My Mommy said to my Daddy that I may get blown away because I am so little. YIKES! I hope not. I know Mommy and Daddy watch me when they let me out.

Daddy said it is still going to be very windy and that the outside decorations will go up on Thursday the day before he is off for five weeks. And the inside decorations are almost done. Basically I have nowhere to lay there is so much Christmas stuff around!

So I told you already how Daddy being off messes up my schedule. Well I will do my usual and pretend it is just his regular days off for a few days. When it hits me he is home for 5 weeks, I will still be with Mommy 80% of the time. I never know about Mommy so I spend time with her.

But Mommy is very happy Daddy is off for 5 weeks and I know Daddy will be playing a lot of ball with me and tackling me a lot. And we will all go for a walk. And Mommy and Daddy do not go anywhere they may do something local so no Kennel for me. Gramma would watch me anyway if that were the case so either way, no kennel.

And a lot of people will be over the house over the next 5 weeks so that is a lot of love and petting. Especially my Nephew Logan who is 6. He loves to chase me and I love to be chased.

So I am getting ready but you can't tell for Christmas. Somebody has to take me to the pet store so I can buy gifts for everyone. I hope they don't wait to long. I hate last minute shopping.
