Christmas Cheer paw-t one.

Firstly, I hope that you all had a terrier-ific Christmas day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and/or Festivus!  As I said before Santa must have turned a blind eye to all of the mischief I have been up to as of late - namely the numerous trips to the kitty litter box (yum!) and going over my "minutes" with all of those late night calls to sweet Eric!  Do you see all of those presents behind Riley??  MOST of those were for US!!!
Above is a picture of yours truly near the presents.  Do you see the ones wrapped in the decorative orange paper?  Those are from (sigh) Eric!!  I wanted to get at them right away for fear that Eric mailed himself over and could potentially be suffocating!

Here is a picture of Riley being a little bit too exuberant about his gift:
In case you were wondering the gift was a moose squeaky toy.  Here is one of me - much less exuberant and more lady like....don't worry the jacket is made of  "faux" fur...
We each got squeaky toys and greenies thanks to Nana & Pops:
I got a special "Fox" squeaky cause I am a foxy lady (or so I am told)
I pleaded (after I finished my Greenie of course) with my pawrents to let me open my gift from Eric by giving them my sad hazel brown eye look....
Pawrents can be so dense sometimes so I had to hint a little stronger about opening Eric's gift...
....stay tuned for the next post when we reveal Eric's big package...and after that Ms. Sophie (Santa?) Brador's fabulous surprise!  Thank you Eric!  Thank you Sophie!  Thank you Nana & Pops!  Thank you Santa(s)!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Well by the time you read this every doggie blogger will have celebrated - I hope Santa was good to you all!  Santa must not have been informed about the NUMEROUS times I snuck into the kitty litter box because he was VERY good to me!  I was also very lucky to be spoiled by my Nana & Pops and by a very sweet and special wire foxy terrier who is **sigh** near and dear to my heart.

Thank you all for being my friend.  I wish you good health and plentiful yummilicious treats in the year to come!!

Hello friends....I know it has been a while but mom was away in Michigan and dad was too busy working to help me with my bloggie...sigh.

Yesterday I received a verrrrrrry romantic peemail from dear, sweet Eric - can you see his handsomeness in the photo above?  I know it is a small photo but it is not hard to see what a (sigh) cutie pie he is! 

Anyway, he took this picture under THIS tree while out on a walkie.  Do you think it is a mistletoad tree?  I think so because there are berries on the tree and he strongly hinted that he was "waiting"....oh! he is so doggedly romantique!!  KISS KISS KISS!

Oh....Eric....I am just waiting under the mistletoad...
(mom here: Toffee, the word is mistleTOE not mistletoad)

I am disgusted.  "Someone" de-stuffed the goose stuffie.  We have had this stuffie for years!  Yes, for years!  When you squeezed the goose it honked just like a real Canadian goose AND it was purchased in Canada, eh!?

Do I look like the guilty party?
Or does Riley??
...look at that face!  This is most certainly the guilty party!  He is practically smirking!
Good thing mom sensed the goose's demise and bought a new one (albeit an impostor since it was not purchased in Canada)

Flying fur.

Yesterday Riley and I went to the local dog run because it was a beautiful day and mom wanted us to have a chance to run around off leash.  When we got there we met Mazie a beautiful young labradoodle.
While there I just did a lot of this
And this
...wondering when I will get to speak to dear, sweet Eric again...sigh....

Riley did a lot of this
...and tried to do a little of this...actually A LOT of this so we had to leave (he really needs those lessons from Lacie girl on how to be a gentleman!!)...
Mazie was visibly upset when we had to leave.  See you again!
(addendum: mom is not so sure that she wants to go back there because she unknowingly stepped in dog poop!)

Can you hear me now?

After having a most pawtastic Thanksgiving dinner at my grandpawrents tonight I got so "tripped" on Tryptophan that I got the courage to dial up *sigh* dear sweet Eric.  Please note, thanks to Petey I have a super cool pink celly phone to do so! Thank you Petey!!

Mom!  What is Eric's number!?  Oh wait!  I have to call Petey first to thank him for the celly phone and to ask for some tips for conversing with Eric because after all they are best pals.  Oh and I also have to make a quick call to Asta to wish her mommi a very happy birthday today. Riley wants to borrow the phone too - something about getting "gentleman" lessons with Lacie next week.  That will have to wait - Mom! What is Eric's number, again?!!!
Okay, here I go...I am dialing...ooh, I am so nervous...

Eric? Eric? Hello? Are you there?

What!? It was just a fabooolous dream?!

Toffee! Toffee!  Are you awake?  

Huh? What are you talking about? I was in NYC visiting with my friends.  What? I wasn't there? It was just a dream? What? A hallucination brought on by one (or ten) of Lacie's famous Mango smoothies?

Oooh! You were sent home with a gift! For me!
Let me at it!
Look at all of this cool tissue paper! And a squeaky Cuz for Riley and some goodies and pig snouts and a squeaky chicken and a squirrel and a pink princess Nylabone and a cell phone and...A CELL PHONE!!!  Thank you so much for these fabulous gifts!!!
Eric! I am going to call you AFTER I take care of this pesky squirrel...
Eric! Are you there??
....I am waiting...Toffeetails operators are standing by...

A fabooolous visit - Take 3

After a little bit of coffee to, er...umm...sober us up, Asta suggested that we take our humans out for a walkie.

Duffy agreed even though he was still a little tipsy I think

Hey?! Where's Petey?  He had already grabbed his leash and ran out the door in excitement!
From the left is Duffy and his mom, Petey and his mom, Asta's mommi, Asta and my dad.

We met some interesting friends on our walk - and greeted them accordingly.
Duffy was convinced that he could see Eric and the UK when he looked out over the water.  He would not believe us no matter how hard we tried to convince him that he was looking in the wrong direction because he was looking at Jersey and that even though I do not have anything against Jersey, being a Springsteen fan, maybe Eric might feel slighted comparing his country to the Jersey shore....but I digress...
...you can see Petey in the background of this picture too...

After a lovely walk along the water my friends showed me their 'hood.  
Such a beautiful area chock full of fancy stores and lovely brownstone buildings.  Everyone was so friendly too!
Petey, wanting to give a good impression as Eric's best buddy, insisted on showing me all the best spots to get dog treats.  He had to twist my paw real hard to convince me...

Look at the "big man on campus" flirting with the ladies!  He is one smooth fella!
mmmm.....can I have another smoothie to wash down my treats?....

A fabooolous visit - Part deux

After a few glasses of Prosecco Petey & Asta had an ingenious idea of suggesting that all the pawrents or "two leggeds" as (*sigh*) Eric would say...insert dream sequence here...oh! anyway! Petey and Asta suggested that the bi-peds go and fetch something to eat.  

So off they went to some frenchy french restaurant - Mom said that she had the best steak sandwich and frites ever!  I, of course, would not know because apparently she didn't even think to save a crumb for me.  Here is a picture of the yummy dessert they all shared:

As soon as the humans were out the door it was time to Paw-Tay!

"Party? Did someone say Party?"...you may notice this familiar party girl, Myrna...
Anyone for a game of tennis ball?  
The four of us ran back and forth and back and forth in Asta's home chasing that fuzzy yellow ball!  Asta's long hallway is just pawfect for running and getting up to full speed!  Myrna decided to supervise whilst imbibing with her own glass of Prosecco - she is too sophisticated for tennie she said; plus she did not want to ruin her Chanel cloak.

After playing ball it was time for a game of bitey face!!

...and then tug of war....
"Quick! Quick! Settle down!"  said Asta.  "They are coming back! Put on your angel dog face"
Duffy vouched for us all..."yes mommy!  we were all very good while you were gone *urp* very good, indeed!"

Please sign my guest book. Woof.
