I think George and Beathoven like the bows (a little glittery doggy bling never hurt anybody...) . It's the antlers they're embarrassed about! But they'll forgive you, wdawson, as long as you don't show anyone the pics. :thumbs up

Jemma looks like she's seen an angel in that tree!

Hmmm... The Pack and the Christmas Tree have never mixed...even when I put the tree up without lights and only painted wooden ornaments and garlands... They eat bows... Santa hats last a maximum of 45 seconds unless they're very sturdily sewn... Hmmm... I have to find a non-perishable, chew-resistant, destruction-resistant Christmas prop... hmmmmm

Bah humbug, no holiday spirit here!

Lookin' forward to the pics, JM! I love all the bows and bangles already showing on the thread! :thumbs up

JM: My happiness of course. :evil:

Hazel, what about you walk them past a house with tons of lights and decorations and your hubby takes a pic? Oh, wait you live in the middle of nowhere...

Ok, I'd settle for a pic where at least one or two have red eye... Red's a Christmas color.:D

Hunter enjoys it because he knows he is getting treats.;) Cassie is too stubborn to make the association.:rolleyes: She can hardly sit still and treats make her go wild, instead of listen to commands, but having Hunter in the same pic makes it easier for her to stay still, she does whatever he does.:shrug:

Oh, Joey is just too cute!!! There was a pet adoption at my Petsmart this past Saturday, and they had a brown cocker that looked just like Joey. She was a little girl that had been forced to live in a cage and have puppies...and she was still basically a puppy herself! :eek: Oh, I wanted to get her so bad! But I don't dare get another dog with Billy. He is terrified of other dogs and I will not stress him out during his last days. But oh my, she was just the sweetest, most adorable thing. So calm and cuddly. Petey really liked her too. :) I learned that puppy mills are against the law in Minnesota, but not in Iowa, which is where she was rescued from. She wasn't adopted yet, so my trainer is going to keep me updated on her story. Hopefully she'll find a great forever home too. But I instantly thought of Joey when I saw her! :cloud9:

ps Meomy's office manager did the crafts- along with some of the playladies at the hospital (oops, they are called child life workers) (Well they play with me and they are ladies soooo...I can call them that?). My meomy might be good with that stethoscope and those other <shudder> needles but ask her to take a needle to a craft - forget it, :) of course one would think what's the big deal, they are just smaller needles, right?
