I know what you're thinking, "Back from vacation?! Your last post was at Christmas! That's must have been some vacation!" But no, friends, I have not been on vacation since Christmas. The truth is, mom has been a blogging slacker. (Get with the program, ma!)
The vacation of which I speak is the one where I get to stay with my beloved cousin Hendrix for a WHOLE WEEK while my family is out of town! You may recall that I love, ..love, ...LOVE him! We have so much fun together!
And guess what? Hendrix got a new baby brother (a kitty) named Hitch since I last posted! I like him a lot and he likes me too. We like to chase each other and he especially enjoys playing with my tail, which I am usually wagging. My aunt shot this picture of us catching some Zzz's...
The other morning all of us fur-babies jumped in bed with my aunt and uncle to snooze before starting our day; what you don't see is my other cousin Harley (also a kitty) who is cuddling at my aunt's neck! My aunt says she might need to get a bigger bed...
My mom told my aunt once how sometimes I think I'm a lap dog (I love my cuddles!), but my aunt was still surprised when I tried crawling into her lap one day! This is one of my mom's favorite pictures—mom loves the expression of delight on my aunt's face! xoxo
My aunt is really good about taking pictures of me and emailing them to mom when we're apart. But as you know, I am not always the most cooperative pup!
Here my aunt tried repeatedly to get a nice mug shot of me, but I'm a busy dog! I've got stuff to do! I can't be sitting around posing! This last one was just a lucky shot...
In other news, I regret to share with you that my feline sister recently crossed the rainbow bridge. Holly would have been 19 years old this fall! She had a great life with a lot of neat experiences and was a great kitty. She got to live overseas for a few years and loved to eat tomatoes! Silly old puss... Mom misses her terribly! My little brother Smokey (a kitty) misses her too; she was 10 years old when he joined the family at six weeks of age. She's practically all he's ever known. I'll try to get mom to post a pic of her so you can see how beautiful she was!
Hope you have been having a great 2011! I certainly have! I know mom is looking forward to sharing some of my shenanigans with you soon!

I got to visit with Santa! I was REALLY excited to meet him!
My girl went with me and mom to see him. She seemed enthusiastic about our visit, but yet once she caught sight of him, she didn't want to get near him. Weird.
Mom said it reminded her of my girl's visit with Santa two years ago (see below)...
Hopefully my girl will have a change of heart about him this year so mom can get a nice picture of them together too!

Yesterday when I got up, there was this amazing white stuff all over my yard! I couldn't believe it! At first I was a little leery of it—after all, I've never seen anything quite like this before!
Initially I didn't want to leave the top step to go down into the yard to potty, but with dad's encouragement I did. Ooh! It was so cold! And so intriguing!
Soon my little girl came out and joined me in the yard. Once I saw that she enjoyed the white stuff, I started to enjoy it too! We started running around in it, traipsing all over the yard. I ran laps around my favorite tree, kicking up lots of snow with every lap! I especially had fun running and sticking my nose in it!
After we had tread in all of the snow in our yard, my girl started to get cold and was ready to go back inside.
I can't wait to play in it again! Hope you get snow where you are!

For the last few weeks mom has been leaving me out of my crate when she's running short errands. I've been doing great about being a good girl and not destroying anything while unattended—well, at least I HAD been...
