Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

Hi Ya All,

I'm hoping you have had or are having a PAWESOME Christmas!!

Scarlet, Zoe and me at Grandpaws' on Christmas Eve, it was also my Grandpaws' 82nd Birthday!! Zoe managed to get decorated with a gold ribbon, whereas Scarlet and I donned the Xmas collars.


Then Zoe decided she would like to help her sister get the collar off. Uncie had to go find the collar at least once.

We had heaps of peeps to entertain and bark at. When they first arrived and walked into the house we gave them all a good barking!! We were told to "shuuush" a lot! Mum didn't get any photos of peep visitors because she was too busy with feeding them and chatting!! Humph!


In the afternoon Scarlet and I helped mum with shelling some prawns (also called shrimp in some parts of the world) and we scored some end bits.......yummers!

Then it was time for dinner. Mum made confit roast duck legs with sour cherry sauce, roast pork with gravy, roast potatoes and carrots and beans with onion and bacon sauce. I quickly took up my spot on the bench seat next to my dad dad, in preparation of tasting some duck and pork. Can you see how determined I am to not budge until I get a taste??  Hey dad.....where is your cherry sauce and gravy???????

I can say the pork and duck were excellent!!  :-)


WOOOO HOOOO!!!........ gift time...... let the tearing and ripping begin!! What's in this one??


It's a squeaky stuffie Penguin!


Zoe comes over to check out my Penguin too.


OOOooooo - Christmas cookies from the "Woofery" bakery.


This is me and my new favourite uncie M - he is visiting our family from Hannover, Germany. We have a special bond! This is a double stuffie - there are two animals kinda back-to-back, weird huh??


I also gots this "Hide a Bird" thingy - it's a soft bird house with two holes, and mum hides these 3 little birdies in there, and I try to get em' out......


See I got out two......then Zoe pinched the house to try and get the third one out!! I don't mind sharing.

You can imagine how tired I was at the end of the night. It was a really hot day it reached 39 degrees C (102.2 F) and Grandpaw had both air-conditioners going for everyone. My peeps had to practically carry me to the car afterwards.

It was Christmas Day the next day - and all I wanted to do was SLEEP. So I allowed my peeps to go off and do the next party without me. At 5:30pm they came home and collected me for the second pawty.... a visit to auntie Lynny and her sister and brother-in-law (who are visiting from the U.K.).

Here I am on auntie Lynny's patio. That's where the peeps were eating and drinking AGAIN!


Auntie Lynny has 3 rescue dogs - Lily on the left, Pip on the right....


And then there is Zac....... he has a crush on me..... and I keep tellin' him that I am spoken for..... my Dex in the U.K. is my boyfriend !


Lily was tryin' to "schmooze" up to my dad dad....


And there were socks to investigate on the sun lounges.....

When mum couldn't hold her eyes very open any longer..... we went home...


We were all pooped..... and I played with my new "Hide-a-Bird" toy for a bit before bedtime.


So that was a small peek into my Christmas! Pawesome Time!!

Hope you all had a Great Time Too!!

    Great to see all the pups enjoying the day!

  8. Hi Rubie, what a great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Bet you were totally tuckered out by the end. Fab presents too. We agree, it sure was hot but that's Christmas in Oz and we wouldn't have it any other way. Wishing you a wonderful, happy and healthy New Year. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  11. Boy I almost came thru the screen for that plate of food you pictured.

    And wow what a load of gifts you got.

    I would have been happy to take a nap on Christmas too, if I had been as busy as you were.

    Glad you had a great Christmas

  13. Ooh, Rubie, you've been having such a great Christmas! Look at all the foodables!

    I had some extra humans over at my house - but none of them gave me any food! I did get lots of pats and attention, though, so I just had to suffer on through.

  14. Wow, your family sure knows how to party for the holidays! It sounds like you had so much fun and got great pressies! We love your penguin. We are not allowed to have any more stuffies for a while because Gramma says we have too many. :(

  15. Wow! Your Christmas Pawty looked Pawsome!!! Oh, and we love shrimp too, although I thought prawns were really larged sized shrimp, like the same species but slightly different or something? I've seen them being called both here in the states, and when I order them, prawns are usually huge and shrimp are much smaller.

  16. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2012 Rubie! I adore the photos they are all so wonderful, love how you got in to the Christmas spirit with a Christmas collar, very festive! My Aunty Judy wouldn't stop cooing over the first photo saying how absolutely gorgeous you all are, but she is Jaspers Mum so she loves all Shnauzers! I think you all look super cute! It looks like you had a really good Christmas and that Santa Paws was incredibly good to you! You must have been a really good girl all year! I'm glad that you got some Christmas dinner too, you are so lucky! Love and Licks from your friend Frank x x x x x
