My Christmas Gifts

Hello, Puppers! Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful day with friends and family, and that you got a nice thing or two from under the tree standing in your living room! Can someone explain that to me? Why do humans put a prickly tree in the room, hang stuff from it, and then WRAP gifts and put them under it? I mean, the tree already doesn't make sense, but WRAPPING the gifts? The point is to get a gift and enjoy it, and by wrapping it, you're pretty much hiding it! It just wasts MORE trees by using the paper! Man, I should get the humans a book for Christmas next year titled "How to Not Waste Trees: for Dummies"....Not that that exists, but still.....
Anyway, lets move to what I got. Well, this year was very successful. Normally I get a collar and a couple extra Scooby Snacks from my human dad, but this year, oh wow, I got THREE different kinds of treats! How great is that?!? I got Canine Carry Outs, Bac'n Bites flavor, which are little strips of doggy bacon, that smell oh so wonderful, and taste one million times better (and by the smell, THAT'S saying something!), and I received all natural dog treats from a company called Wet Noses, apple pie flavor. They are from some friends of ours that visited at Thanksgiving. They have a doggy named Gypsy. Maybe I'll scan a picture of her on to show you guys her. She's pretty cool. Anyway, those treats have (according to the package) no corn, no wheat, and no soy, which is apparently not good for doggies. They are REALLY good, and they also smell scrumptious. My human sis says to tell you people (doggies, actually) that if you went by smell, she would totally be eating the treats. (luckily it says for doggies only because I want them all for myself!) The last treats were made by my sis all by herself. They are made from peanut butter and other stuff (see the recipe on my sis's cousin's blog here.) They are called Beg-ables. I never really liked peanut butter, and my sis knows that, so she was a little unsure that I'd like them. Well, lets just say they aren't my favorite. I eat them, but mainly because I figure, heck, what else can I do? It's lying there! Might as well eat it......
I hope you have a good day!

You are totally spoiled! Homemade treats, all natural treats! I guess you're worth it-- at least your human sister thinks so. And I feel bad because I should have sent you something. Maybe for your birthday. When is your birthday, anyway? I should check the blog because I'm sure your sister put pictures up and your birthday was just recently. Oh well. Maybe for New Year's!

I know, I AM totally spoiled, but you're totally right: I DESERVE it! I work really hard for it (my sis says "Yeah, right".)
My birthday is August 8, 2000.
That's okay, you don't have to send a gift.
Boomer once sent me a gift....*sniff*....I miss Boomer!
