We've been very busy this week. Daddy has been away on business, so we've had to help out Mama more than normal. We make sure that we take her for her walks every day. Today, it was snowing, so we decided to just go in the afternoon. She seemed fine with that. She said we could skip our afternoon walk if we wanted, but we needed to check our pee mail since we didn't go this morning, so we went. We've been entertaining Mama in the evenings by trying to learn new tricks. Last night, we supervised the cleaning of Daddy's chair and a few spots on the carpet. We didn't really enjoy doing that because the carpet cleaner is very loud.
Daddy will be home tomorrow night! He will give us ear rubs and lots of hugs. We really miss him when he is gone.
Hope everyone has a nice New Year's Eve. We are staying at home with the folks.

Here is Scout waiting in line for her present. She received a dog that has squeakies in his feet. Scout wanted squeakies in the belly, so Mama fixed him the next day. She recycled squeakies from some of the toys that we don't play with and put two squeakies in the dog's belly so now Scout loves her toy.
Here I am with Scout's toy. I had to test it out for her.
After we played with our toys, Mama gave us our bones. Look how big this thing is!
Scout is having trouble getting her mouth around it.
Excuse me, I'm busy playing here.
Yesterday, we just hung out with Mama and Daddy. Here Scout is enjoying the warmth of the fireplace.
I was really tired after playing with my new toys, so I took a nice long nap. I like that Santa guy. He brings good things to us.
Hope everyone else had a "greyt" Christmas like we did.

It has to be mine. It looks huge!
Then, I decided that Scout's present had to be around some where. I walked into the next closet and I saw TWO huge bones! I have never seen a bone that big before. We will be chewing on those bones for a long time. There is a bag that looks like it has a stuffie in it. That is probably Scout's, but I know she will share it with me.
I thought that Santa brought presents. I don't understand how the presents got here already and how come they are not wrapped? Maybe there isn't really a Santa, but I met him last year. I'm really confused!
The Greyhound Who Found His Presents Early

Mama asked me this morning why Scout and I get so excited about going for a walk. How could she not know? Walks are so exciting! It's like going shopping. You never know what you are going to find. Each day there are new smells. I always have to mark areas to let others know that this is my place. Just the other day there was a new Christmas banner hanging on the mailbox. That's my mailbox, so I marked it. Mama was not happy about that though. Someone keeps marking our rock, so Scout and I both have to re-mark it. Yep, we double team that rock. One of these days the other critters are going to learn that it's our pee rock and not theirs. There's always new things to see. New leaves appear on the road. We have to check them out. Sometimes we find things to eat on our walks, but I have to be quick because Mama doesn't allow us to do that. Today, we saw the UPS truck driving down the road. Scout refused to move because she wanted to see what he was up to. I think she thought he was bringing her a present. You just never know what you are going to see on a walk. You might see people, deer, turkey, skunks, cats, other dogs. It's an exciting world! So, that's why I like to walk. Any other questions? LOL

Mama said she told him what we wanted which are bones. He said he knew the perfect one for us. It's like two feet long and peanut butter flavored. Yummy! He said he will throw in a few other surprises for us. We can hardly wait.
Today, we baked cookies with Mama and listened to Christmas music. It sure is a fun time of the year.

The Greyhound Who Knows That Santa Is Watching
Friday, December 4, 2009
Mama brought the rustic tree upstairs and set it in the foyer in front of the window. She put lights on it and a few ornaments. We supervised her and celebrated when she finished by throwing our toys in the air and playing a song with our squeakies.
Here's our tree.
We live in a rustic type of house, so we think it looks nice. It solves all of our problems because Santa will now visit, the tree is out of our way and Mama has always wanted to have a tree in front of the window but never has before.
Mama said we will put up our stockings on the fireplace this weekend and we will add a few more decorations around the house. Christmas time is fun!!!!
