Sometimes It's About the Dogs!
~Mildred , another blogging friend asked if we had picked up any special ornaments from a shop we enjoyed on our trip to Depoe Bay and here's the answer. Yes Mildred, we found 3 ornaments we just had to bring home from Sleighbells, near Lincoln City.Here is one of them. This is a Jack Russell terrier ornament that seems to have been made for our youngest son and his wife who have 2 Jack Russells, Shotgun and Ruger by name. Shotgun and Ruger go everywhere with them and we hope they appreciate this ornament. (Shhhhhhhh, don't tell them about it though, it's wrapped up for them to open on Christmas ) ~Here are the real live Christmas dogs, our puppies. 4 of our grandchildren dropped in this week while I was finishing up items to sell at the bazaar. Good thing I had sugar cookies to eat and red puppies to play with. Puppies and cookies at Grandmas.....how much better could it get? Here #1 Grandson is petting the pups. ~Before long, the puppies were worn out from all the excitement and began seeking refuge under #1Grandson, and snuggling themselves as close to him as they could get. That was the cue to put them back in their pen for puppy naps.~ ~Another picture of Beatrix , and beside her is Hawk, the Vizsla.They are decked out with Christmas ribbons , but not appreciative at all of their apparel.Hawk is the father of the puppies, Beatrix is the half sister of the puppies. See the resemblance between these two and the pups ?
