So now onto our Christmas report! It was sure a grreat time with Grandma and Grandpa and Momma. I got so excited to see Grandpa!!! Um... a little TOO excited.
What's that on my ankle, you say? Um, a bag of frozen peas. I kinda of took a hard spill jumping off the couch to greet Grandpa. We thought I was okay at furst, but a few hours later my ankle was really swollen and I was limping badly. Oops. But Momma gave me some anti-inflammatories (we keep it for when my arthritis flares up) and iced it regularly. As of this morning, I'm not limping anymore!
Little mishaps aside, it was a really wonderful Christmas. Momma and Grandma and Grandpa had chili and cornbread on Christmas Eve, then after the grandpawrents left, we settled in as a family to watch A Christmas Carol before going to bed.
In the morning, it was CHRISTMAS!!! Santa paws knew how grreat we were this year and gave us lots of pressies. You can't see real well in this pic, but Jessie and I were very enthusiastically sharing the same bone. And Pigeon got a whole can of tuna to herself!
Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Gracie were there too. Gracie has only been here once before -- we usually go to her house, and she was SCARED of Pigeon. Not the big doggies more than twice her size, but the kitty her same size! Grandma said a mean ol' cat attacked her once. It was kinda funny to see.
We spent the rest of the day playing with our toys. Jessie got a cool new alligator, but she just cared about her bone. And look at my giraffe!
By the time dinner came around, Jessie and I just conked out under the table. I was too tired to even hope for scraps!
We hope you all had a totally pawesome Christmas too, and enjoy your BOXER DAY!
