Holiday Card Pics - a sneak preview

Last night was the worst night of my entire life. At least we got treats. Here is a sneak preview of what may or may not make it into our Holiday Cards this year! (There were literally hundreds of blurry photos to choose from.)

Get in my belly!

Most people like it when my mama bakes things for them...but I have to tell you, for us pups, it's torture. Sparky had the right idea when he not-so-secretly sampled her wares some time ago - but it's been a super long time since Mama slipped and left something tasty within our reach. Until yesterday, that is!

See all those banana breads? I can totally jump up onto that table and make her start all over if I felt like it! I didn't because I'm pretty sure that Mama would've fashioned my hide into a handbag, and I have way more living to do. However, I did steal one when Sparky and Pandie went outside to go potty. I had exactly 3 minutes to steal the loaf, unwrap it and hide the evidence.

Unfortunately, I didn't find a very good hiding place for the yucky wrapper.

I was sent to jail, where I did the time for doing the crime. I didn't even pretend to be regretful as I licked the crumbs off my lips for about 20 minutes as my mom kept asking "Why Patches, why?"

Oh! My tummy!

If I wasn't a boy, pups and humans alike might think that I was in the "family way!" My tummy was huge and moved on it's own! I took it easy the rest of the day - partly because I couldn't move very well. I can't wait to see if my poo smells like bananas.

Vote in our Poll!

My mama needs some help with Girl Puppy's name. We have three choices to the left for you to pick from. My personal favorite is Flower...she's black and white, like Flower the skunk in Bambi - plus her farts can clear a room.

Chiquita means "little girl" in Spanish.

Pandemonium (or Pandie for short) is a fab name for her, because she is so full of energy AND she looks like a panda bear in the face. (Edited to add: my mama has been trying this name out, and the puppy actually comes when she calls her...)

We just can't decide!

Our new sister

Patches and I are proud to introduce our new little sister! She doesn't have a name yet, so we are all calling her "girl puppy." Girl puppy is a beagle/pekingese mix (my mama obviously has a thing for beagles, since we are all 1/2 beagle!).

Patches wasn't exactly warm and welcoming when he first met her. In fact, his bark - a high pitched woman's scream, I kid you not - scared the crap out of her. Um. Literally. As it does most living things. I liked her immediately.

Girl puppy is a bundle of activity. Patches was very sick and sleepy when he came home, but this girl is healthy as a horse, and is keeping us on our toes! We played so much last night, running around our house, that we all collapsed into a big heap on our mama's legs at bed time!
Yes, Patches is totally spooning me. Returning the favor, now that he's the biggest pup in our pack.

Girl puppy hasn't had a single accident in the house, and has gone pee and poop OUTSIDE. (She's a good pile pooper - no 360 degree poops like me, or the walk-a-thon poop like Patches.) She's also doing a great job going into her kennel!

If anyone would like to make a suggestion for a name, please leave a comment! I went two weeks without a name, and Patches wasn't Patches until a full week after coming home. I can't let that happen to Girl puppy!
