All I can say is that we must have been very good hounddogs this year because we got pressies all the way from Louisiana. Our blogging friends The Cheesehounds sent us a package as well.
It all starts with a package dropped at the door
Of course, again, the mean ol assistant took that box into the back bedroom to see what was inside. I think this time was a good call on her part or their could have been some fur a flying over these goodies.
Bags of goodies stuffed in a big ol box
The sweet card they sent
Can you see what we see....
Look at all these goodies
Have you ever seen a bone this huge? We will be saving this for a good snowy cold day
These are no small ones either
These are what our Momma got
The most awesome keychain with a pink cadillac and a basset. These are designed by Terri Davis and you can find her Etsy website Here. She makes everything by hand and all her sales go towards Animal Rescues
And this my friends will be the new tradition for next year......We don't need an Elf on the Shelf we will have a Dog on the Shelf. BOL
Here are a few snap shots (action) of the dogs with their new toys
Amiees action shot on snatching a treat from my hand
Sorry we have none of Winston because he started to whine and pout because he wasn't liking the treats. They were to hard for him, he is such a whinner. He is so picky on treats and appears to only appreciate the finer soft ones. BOL
We want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU to our Southern Basset Friends The Cheesehounds for all the fine selection of toys and goodies.
We got our present in plenty of time for Christmas but our mean ol assistant made us wait for Christmas. We didn't agree with this because as you can see the package was smelling pretty good when it was sitting on the front porch.
Yep that label says our name. Bring it lady and stop snapping pictures
This was one tough package to open so the our assistant assisted us with opening and then taking lots of pictures of everything before the pressies were handed out to each one of us. Look at all this loot we got from them and they were even nice and included our mean ol assistant. BOL
Look at all these goodies
We each received two gifts for ourselves and they were all addressed to each one of us.
For All of Us to share
Of course our mean ol assistant cheated and while she was in the backroom taking pictures of everything she opened her pressies first. Oh my I didn't think we were every going to get to ours since she was so in love with what she got.
A new basset hound calendar and it is different then the one we got her so she now has one for home and one for work. She also got a wonderful book that is from the time frame she was a child (she said she wouldn't give that date away) BOL....It was a story about a Christmas Kitten and 3 basset hounds all living together. So very cute and she just loves it and will make a nice addition to her collection of older books with basset hounds in them.
The story and illustrations were just precious
Okay mean ol assistant get to the good stuffs so we can see what we got.
Winston got to open is first
Off to the bedroom he goes
What did you get Winston?
Oh you gots a new toy...Do you think he will notice if I snatch it
Amiee was next in line to get her gifts
What ya got there Amiee?
Another new toy...Isn't he so cute
Bella was next to get her gifts. All this Christmas stuff is very new to Bella and she doesn't understand the concept of opening gifts yet. So she needed a little help but once she got her toy off to the bedroom she went with it.
These are all our toys we got. We had no idea that you could by Doggie Toys at Toys R Us. Mom thought when she first seen them we had gotten baby toys. BOL Then she read the tag and it says dog toy on it. So know if you are at Toys R Us shopping for the 2-legger kids you can pick up a new toy for the 4-legger kids. How cool is that.
Oh, wait we are not done yet we got Christmas cookies as well. Good thing Mom realized what these were before she gave them to us to open. She took care of that for us and then gave each one of us a yummy Christmas cookie treat.
Num Num Num
Thanks again for all the great presents and we be by to check up on you. Mom is just thrilled with her pressies and Thanks her from the bottom of her heart for the extra mile their Mommie (Susie) went to purchase her gifts.
Sniffs, The HoundDogs
P.S...Our other new friends that we sent gifts to are from Canada and they are Sam, Owen, Jetta and Tuvia over at http://mydogsam01.blogspot.ca/. Check them out some time.
Why hello to our fellow blogging friends, sorry for our abscence but things have been crazy at the Hound House. Mom has been busy with lots of work stuffs and then doing volunteering at the local shelter as well. We have hardly got to see her except when she is running in the door, running out the door and leaving us behind.
But we have finally got around to it looking a little like Christmas around the house.
Mom and Dad left one day and decided to bring the outside stuffs inside the house.
Oh, Christmas Tree
Ornaments on the Hound Tree
Once the tree was up we moved to getting our Christmas photo taken. We are just thankful this time of the year only comes once.
Bella look at the camera and not the treat on the floor
Hey Lady, are you just going to hold that treat way up there and not give it to me
Please GOD will you just let this be over with and please remove this item from my head.
Whew glad that is over and we won't endure this again till next year.
We then moved on to doing some Christmas cards for the card exchange. Whew that was a lot and they all were placed in the mail last week so we hope everyone has been receiving them.
Good thing we got these done because look at all these Christmas Cards we have recevied from our blogging friends. And we still have several more to add and print from the e-cards we have received.
(THEIR'S - Humans)
Who do you think is the most popular at the Hound House?
After having all our cards read to us and placed up we then moved on to a little pre-Christmas celebration.
Let the unwrapping begin. BOL
After all this we then a heard a knock at the door so we sprung from the couches to see who was there.
Look Look a package as been delivered to us....
Yep it came priority mail and smells good
Yep it is even addressed to us The HoundDogs. Hey Lady stop snapping pictures and bring this package in for us.
(Note: More to come on the goodies of this package)
We have hung our wreath on our door
And we hung our mistletoe
Whew I think that has concluded our pre-Christmas planning and festivies.
So bring on that big ol' jolly man in the red suit.
