Merry Christmas to All…..

Leo’s first Christmas at the House of the Fox Dogs, and I think he enjoyed it!

There were lots of interesting things to look at and unwrap:

And at first, even Bel had fun–what’s in this bag?  (There were dog treats in there–a gift from my mother).

But the holidays can be stressful, too, especially when others climb all over you in a rush to get at the presents.

And then Bel starting getting a little anxious:

Leo was enjoying checking out the stockings, but Bel thought, When will it ever end?

P1010827

Leo loved it!  He loves the limelight too.  Bel?  Not so much.

Handsome Oskar had to have a timeout with his presents upstairs.  Oskar doesn’t share well, and at some point he decided he should have ALL THE THINGS.

I’ll be good now, I promise!

He had taken his Himalyan chew upstairs, and was torn between coming down to be with us, and guarding his chew.

Toby had his chew and a quacking duck toy in his room.   He came in to investigate the wrapping for a bit, but decided that he would prefer to spend the holiday alone with his stuff.   We could hear him quacking his toy merrily from his room.

Toby says “Hmmm…..nothing to eat.”

Bel had been in and out several times by then, but still seemed to be anxious, and was now frozen in front of M’s chair, where she stayed for most of dinner:

Bel says “the holidays are so stressful.”

Leo decided that holidays are about eating ALL THE THINGS and decided that he was willing to eat anything and everything, including brussell sprouts and then salad:

Leo says “That looks tasty!”

P1010852

Leo says “Lettuce! My favorite!”

P1010853

“Hey, what about me?”

Overall, Bel was less than thrilled with the holiday.  Either that, or she was just stuck:

Oh god, is it STILL Christmas?

But the rest of us had a lovely day.   And we wish you all wonderful holidays, and peace, blessings, and abundance in the new year!
