Secret Santa Paws came!!!

Cowboy and Cindy Sue have been waiting with bated dog breath for many days for this day to arrive.

Secret Santa Paws came!!!

If you don't know about, it's a dog web community...yep, much like FaceBook or MySpace...but for dogs!! Cindy Sue and Cowboy have their own pages (and they have more friends than I do!!!). I've (we've) met a lot of really nice dogs and their owners over the past couple of's a lot of fun.

So pups belong to a small group called The Dog House and they draw names every year for a gift exchange...hence "Secret Santa Paws"! I put my two in as a single. So, their package came via mail yesterday and we picked it up today. (Teresa the Post Mistress called yesterday to let us know we had a that small town service or what!)

Our Post Mistress knows Cindy Sue & Cowboy...
They get more mail than we do!

Oh my gosh!!! This package smells like dogs... & treats!!!

Hurry up mom!!! What's the problem?!? Ok, we go...

Wasn't that fun?!?!?! We all thought it was!

Look at all the lovely pressies from Primo and Mona Lisa!!

Cindy Sue took her treat over to the wood stove...
she daintily chewed to her heart's content.

Cowboy enjoyed his on the kitchen floor.

(Abby, no photo available!)

Abby took off to the out of doors to body slam hers and probably bury it!

Who had more entertainment...dogs or humans? Well, we all had a great time and will look forward to Secret Santa Paws next year.

Merry Christmas to everyone's critters!

Such lucky dogs!

Perhaps we need to do something like that for our ponies, but I'm too tired to think up a clever Santa name. Someone else can do that.

I hate to admit it, but the combination of the song and the video had my eyes watering....Great pics of the dogs enjoying their treats.. :-)

Loved watching the dogs open their present! Santa comes tonight for mine! They each have their own stocking. I'm sick, I know!

Have a great holiday!

Cutest video! Glad to see how spoiled your doggies are! (as they all should be). Gotta go check out dogster for Angel and Snuffy! Happy Holidays!

Smooch is so incredibly jealous, and she listened to your every word as you were opening the box, thinking you might toss her a treat through the speaker. Merry Christmas to all of you - stay warm.

How great is that! We need that for our horses! They scored bigtime!

I can not imagine life without a dog in it.

Merry Christmas,

Having pup friends near and far is the best! I enjoyed watching them open their presents. I think I'll get my camera out to see if I can get a good video. Merry Christmas to you all!!
