Hey everybody - hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! We had a great Christmas here, lots of wonderful pressies all around. Mom ended up hurting herself using one of them (more about that later), and since she's kinda laid up, Carmen & I are going to do a post to show you all the cool stuff we got mom!
The tags on all of these gifts said they were from Dad, but you can imagine we helped him shop! Without our wonderful taste, he never could have thought of such cool things!
First of all, we told dad to get this super-cool picture - it's a Frenchie blueprint! How nifty is that? Good thing that Carmen & I measure up to all the specifications (clikc on the image to biggify & check them ou!!
We also whispered in the ears of some of the family (like mom's step-sister Aimee, who blogs about her human pup, Mayna). She was able to find two different Frenchie items that mom just loves!
|What a great bag for toting along our toys and treats!!|
|Sounds like a good motto to me!|
One more gift that mom got had to do with us, but it certainly wasn't our idea - a new Dyson. Mom has to vacuum ten times more than normal because of Mason, so we're guessing he's behind this gift. He's the one that does all the shedding around here, after all. Just when I'd finally gotten used to the old Dyson, Mason has to go and wear it out from sucking up all his furs all over the place...
That's a Dyson canister vac. Carmen & I (OK, especially me) were leery about this new appliance from the get-go. Spent lots of time barking at dad while he put the monster together.
|I don't know... Got a bad feeling about this thing...|
|Are you sure you put it together right, Dad??|
Mom was really excited about her this new
torture device canister vac, and decided to put it to work on Monday. After only a few minutes of enthusiastic vacuuming (accompanied by enthusiastic yapping from yours truly), mom had to put the Dyson away. Somehow she tweaked her back really badly by using the stupid thing!
The bad news is that mom spent the last few days on the couch, missing out on some really fun agilities practices we had planned (you know she's feeling bad when we skip agility!). The good news is that she is on the mend now, thanks to the great nursing care around here.
|We don't have "RN" in the titles after our names for nothing, you know!|
Mom's misfortune also gave us lots of extra snuggle time, which Carmen and I both took to full advantage. Don't worry, we Frenchies got lots of cool pressies for Christmas as well! Didn't want to share the post with Mom, so we'll be back soon to tell you about all the cool stuff we got!
