We put on the festive hat and asked Nickie to put on her most festive face for you. There you have it. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
Nickie is ready for the holidays! The tree is up, the shopping is done, and the stockings are hung. She is keeping her paws crossed that she is on the nice list this year so there will be lots of presents underneath the Christmas tree.
Even our pug is hesitant to get out of bed on Monday mornings. Who could blame her? However, as soon as she heard breakfast was being served, she perked up a bit.
Here we demonstrate the tree stages of how many dogs deal with new things.
Step 1: TERROR! Variations include fear or slight concern, as shown here.
Step 2: EAT IT! If unsuccessful at eating it, proceed to step 3.
Step 3: Investigate thoughtfully to see if it actually was a threat or edible. If the latter, return to Step 2.
Perhaps this is not the best and most gracious way in this case to greet an old friend, but I don’t think the penguin will holds a grudge.
We were feeling pretty guilty about taking Nickie to the groomer at the pet store to get her nails trimmed because she absolutely hates it. While she was being beautified, we did a little shopping and came across this indestructible nylon bacon flavored bone. We splurged and bought it as a consolation prize for her, and the two are now inseparable. Not even her old favorite octopus toy could distract her from her chewing.
Our pug oscillates between boundless energy and heavy, snoreful sleep; daring adventure and devastating lethargy. Nickie was really psyching herself up to go down those stairs, and it was looking like she was going to descend. Then she started having second thoughts and was clearly trying to evaluate whether it was really worth all the effort. The verdict? Not worth it.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and when we saw this awesome t-shirt, we had to get it for her. It was a little tight in the shoulders, but overall, we were not disappointed by the result.
