Finally ... The Christmas Loot!

Just a quick reminder that this is what our tree looked like after Mom and Aunt Bec decorated it so carefully.

And this is what our tree looked like on Christmas morning. Please note the new arrangement of the ornaments. Also note that Mom and Aunt Bec did not use the tripod to take this picture so it is the picture that is blurry and not your vision.

This is all of the Christmas loot that we got. This is just our loot. Maggie and Jake took their loot home but you will see it in some of the pictures. The three cans of Snausages came from Grandma and Grandpa. Mom has not opened them yet but we will get to that ... (Oh, and don't look too closely at the edge of the area rug. We decided the edging could be removed. Mom did not agree.)

We have not been allowed to play with these toys. Mom says they are on vacation and will return later. Why did some of our toys get to go somewhere without us and how did she get this picture that looks like our sofa?

Here is a picture of the area rug after Roxie "played" with one of the toys.

Hmm ... it might have been Andy. He looks like he is making a run to get away from the evidence.

These are the toys that are in the toy ER (emergency room) awaiting surgery before they can come back to play with us. The square green one on the left has been restuffed with the grisly remains that were left on the rug. They just don't make toys like they used to ...

Maggie sat very ladylike on the other sofa and enjoyed her toys.

This is Sammy with Red Bear. Sammy picked Red Bear out of all of the toys.

Mom realized that Sammy loves Red Bear so much that she'd better have a Red Bear 2. Here is Red Bear 1 already missing an arm thanks to Andy and Red Bear 2 who is somewhere we can't get to him. Sammy sleeps with Red Bear and carries him around. In the morning, Sammy stretches and then goes back into his crate to get Red Bear. He runs into the den and drops him on the rug before he goes outside. When Sammy comes back into the house, he picks up Red Bear and takes him to wherever they are going.

And to end this exciting entry, we have a picture of Hot Diggity. Mama Lana sent him to us from Florida! We don't get to play with him but Mom likes him so he is going to get a place of honor ... that we can't reach. Sometimes it doesn't pay to be short.

And now, the Snausages: Mom says we can have them but she gets to decide how many and when. We think she is mistaken because Grandma and Grandpa gave them to us. We are going to ask them the next time we see them. They should be able to set Mom straight!

Texas, one of our dog friends, requested pictures. We hope this satisfies him!

We linked here from Tara (so sad) and love your little antics. My human speaks for me. My name is Roxie also. How come we have the same name? Are there more of us? Do you like to snuggle like I do? I do to my toys what you guys do (that green stuff on the rug). My best favorite toy is the BoBo from Petsmart...the one that's in the commercial. I've had three so far. I don't understand why the insides are so inviting. I live with a Macaw..if you guys don't have one you are lucky. I totally respect her beak! Love, Roxie the Doxie

Happy, happy, happy!
Play bows,

hey guys! my mom loves those dachsie statues! she doesn't have any but she likes to look at them in the stores. i have a favorite toy too, i call it brown bear (but one day mom and dad figured out that its a dog not a bear, but that didn't change its name) i bring it to bed every night!

Bob-kat said...

Aw, that is so sweet, that he takes Red Bear with him wherever he goes. Glad you Dachsies loved your loot. Who would have guessed there was so much stuffing inside them?

Happy new year to you and your mom.

*3 Big Licks and Butt Sniffs* Great work, Dachsies! Look at all the nice comments! Love the pictures! Sammy's Red Bear sounds just like my Santa but Mummy and Daddy take that away from me if they go out (maybe the neighbors don't like my Santa?). I used to carry my green big ball with me everywhere but now Daddy won't let me bring it inside (he seems not to like the mud and grass on it - but it doesn't bother me). I am so happy with your pictures! Your bellies are so low to the ground... what do you do with speed bumps?

Love and Licks,
Texas (and his humans).

P.S. I got to sleep inside while Daddy went to work this morning - snuggles to all!

I didn't know Snausages came in cans! I've got a lot to learn.

I love the picture of running Andy.

Snausages are good!

Happy New Year guys and to your Mom too!

Great stuff! And we have that exact same green fluff all over our bedroom floor. The little dogs LOVE the German Shepherd's big ol' worn out lumpy bed, but Cricket (the monster) keeps pulling the stuffing out. I've tried to explain, over and over, that when she pulls the stuffing out, it loses the fabulous lumpiness that she loves. Then...I stuff it back in and try to hide the little hole. You can guess what happens next - yep, she pulls it right back out again.

Arfs!! What a haul! We're coming to your house for Christmas!!

Wow Dachsies, you're people must really love you to give you so many toys AND have a toy ER. Our people didn't give us anything at all--our new puppy doesn't really count, I don't think.

Happy New Year

It would've been down within seconds over here!!!!!

Hey, that Hot Diggity is sooo cool, but I hope he doesn't give your mom any smart ideas about you guys, you know, for the photo of next years X-mas Card Exchange... *winks*

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Joe Stains said...

The Airechicks said...

Andy -
I like your style.
Could I get some tips from you on destroy and run?

Studly Dudley said...

Check out all that Xmas loot!! I hope your Mum's let you have some Snausages by now. It'd simply be CRUEL for her not to.
