Veil's Take on Christmas

By Miss Veil

So Christmas has come and gone for another year and I can't say that I'm sorry.  Oh I know, it's a magical time of year and all that...but there just seems to be a lot of hustle and bustle.  I'm really not a hustle and bustle type of girl.

I was so excited when I got a package all the way from the UK with a lovely pink bandana in it.  OK, so maybe Maddy and Beckett each got one too.  Thank you Deccy, we love them and they match our collars perfectly!

Although it appears like Santa didn't get my message about wanting more time for belly rubs and snuggling on the couch; Mum says not to give up yet.  Now that the shopping and cooking and eating and visiting are done, that gift is coming.

Sounds like New Year's Eve is going to the dogs and I couldn't be happier about it.

Merry Christmas Eve!

So, last night Mum decided if she was making Christmas collars for us, time was just about up. I supervised the making of my snow man collar.  So far, that's the only one finished.  Oh well, sorry Miss Veil and Maddy, maybe next year... I have to be well-dressed 'cause there's a little "collar-loving" girl I'm trying to impress.

We want to wish all our friends a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  To all the hounds out there waiting for homes, we hope 2013 is the year you discover what it feels like to be loved and to have a family to give your love too.

Dear Santa...

Miss Veil here again...

I know this may be a little late and all, but we hounds here have had a meeting and decided to change what we asked you for...please apologize to the elfs for us in advance.

I know I asked for a new collar and coat and Maddy asked for a coat that doesn't make her go electric and a octopus and Beckett asked for the loudest squeaky toy you had and a new bouncy ball...but perhaps some other houndies could use those??

The only thing that we all decided that we wanted to leave on our list is "time".  Time to spend curled up with Mum and Dad, getting belly rubs and ear scratches.  Time to play "find me" inside when its too cold out and walks in the snow when its not, and time just being cozy and relaxed and most importantly, all together.

If you could see fit to maybe drop the other things we asked for at a shelter somewhere, I'd would be grateful for that.

 Miss Veil, Beckett and Maddy

P.S.  Oh, that sweater that Mum is trying to knit for can probably take that too...although finding a hound that it will actually fit might be too difficult for this short notice.

What's a Diet?

This morning, I was so excited.   As soon as mum put my "going to town" collar on, I knew I was going somewhere.  Even better, the girls weren't coming with us.  Dad drove us, because the road was a sheet of ice.   

I went to visit my veterinarian, Dr. Allen.  They have a resident cat there, who I didn't bother at all.  Then a little white dog escaped from the back office and came running over to visit me.  Mum said it was lucky it was me and not the girls.

The needle didn't hurt, I didn't even notice it because Dr. Allen is very good at giving them (and all the lovely treats).  My teeth and ears were checked and she listened to my heart and breathing.  I got a clean bill of health, (except that I have a little bit of a dirty ear).  I could do without the ear cleaning, because that is not my favorite thing, but all in all I'm good.   They put me on the scales and I heard Mum say, oh oh!  Apparently I've put on a couple pounds, so I may have to cut back a bit.

I guess my idea for this giant size cookie cutter is out then?

It's nice to drive in the car without having to worry about touching Veil or Maddy and them getting annoyed with me.

Lots of room to stretch out today!

I don't think I'm fat, I'm just big-boned... I will have to ponder this one for awhile.  Mum says I won't even notice a 1/4 cup less food... we'll see...

Happy Belated 5th Birthday Maddy!

Not again...

Oh, I am a bad Mum! I totally forgot Maddy's Birthday yesterday!  I was so busy looking at the calendar that I made of the hounds that came, it didn't even register. It just popped into my head tonight!!

Maddy: Veil, I think totally forgetting my birthday is far worse than what happened to you! But at least I didn't have to endure the birthday hat, like last year!!
