Festive Friday with Arty's Letter to Santa!

 It's that time of year again...where Mama brings the antlers out of storage, along with lots of other decorating stuff....

 Yesterday we put up our Christmas tree!!!

 Here is MY ornament! It is very special because I got it from Tank, one of my very first Bloggy furiends! Tank had to leave for the Rainbow Bridge this year, which makes this ornament even more special!!

 This ornament is more Arty's...because he likes to woof!

 No tree trimming pawty is complete without playing "Put the garland on the doggy" game!! Poor Jakey, he is such a good sport!!

Today is also Santa Paws List Day over at Ranger's place!
We are letting Arty read you his letter today!
Dear Santa Paws,

   I have been a mostly good boy this year. I hardly ever growled at my brother Bilbo and Dory and I rarely get into fights over who is in charge any more. Best of all, I haven't growled at Mama or Daddy at all!! 

   The biggest thing on my Santa list this year is that Mama takes me with her (and Dory) to the BAR. I am going to be a very good boy and train hard with Mama but if you could somehow help talk her into taking me, that would be great!!

   Next, I would love it if you could do your best to help all my fur-iends in shelters around the world find fur-ever homes, that would be pawsome!!

  Finally...I would LOVE it if you could make me not be itchy anymore....The V-E-T put me on special food, and that doesn't seem to be working...if you could help my Mama and Daddy and the V-E-T find out what's wrong with me...that would be, as my friend #MaddiethePug says, #prettykewl!!!

Love...your bestest Shih Tzu Fur-iend,

PeeEss...Ignore whatever Ernie the EOTS says...he is a troublemaker!!

Now,  for the bestest part of  the trimming the tree season, sitting back to relax and watch the lights twinkle!!!!

We hope you enjoy a relaxing weekend!!!

i just finished putting up my little tree in the nook and the best part was standing back and taking photos THEN sitting down to admire. i love tree lights and i also love sweet little dogs in Christmas Attire... you all look adorable.. i will ask around about itchy stuff... it is not fun to itch. to keep baby from itching she took benadryl twice a day. maybe ask the vet about that.

Your tree is just so very pretty and special. We were sad to learn about Tank - he lived in our city of OP.

and Arty, you HAVE been a very good boy, we are sure Santa Paws will be very kind to you.

What a pretty tree! Hope you get all you ask for, Arty!

KB Bear said...

I knew Tank, and I'm so glad you have his ornament to remember him. I didn't know he'd crossed the Bridge.

And Arty - I hope all your wishes come true. Most of all, I hope that you can figure out the itchiness. I think you've been a fabulous boy this year!
