Hello 2011!!!

The Frenchies donned all their finery last night to welcome in the new year.  

Let's get this party started!

Well, actually.... they slept through it.  Snoring gloriously in their crates while we were down the street celebrating with family.  But who knows, maybe there was a party here that we just didn't know about?  If there was, this is what it might have looked like...

Can I interest you in some champagne?

Think the top hat is a bit much?

Ah, yes - much more dignified.  Gotta love the tuxecdo.  Kinda feel James Bond-ish.

Or perhaps a little more like Marlin Brando...  Now leave the gun & take the cannoli!

Of course Carmen would be the most elegant hostess...  At least when she wasn't too busy posing for glamor shots!

What can I say...

...the camera just loves me!

Going a little retro here - you can call me the Greta Garbo of Frechies!

Is it midnight yet?

Getting verrrrrrrry sleeeeepy.....

But really, they just aren't party animals. It was waaay after their bedtime after all (or so I think).

Maybe we shouldn't have had that last glass of champagne!

Thanks to everyone for their comments on our last post and header photo.  Yes, Brutus really did that - absolutely no photoshopping (although technically he was chewing on the horn, not blowing it)!  You just have to have the camera within reach at all times around here - never know what might happen.

Hope you all start 2011 off on the right paw.  For us, it's just relaxing with family & friends, and enjoying a bunch of bowl games! How do the rest of you get the new year started??

You little party animals!
We watched an old movie with our peeps and hid under the covers, when the fireworks started!!

It was a quiet night for us here too - a bit chilly outside but toasty and warm inside with lots of yummy treats.

Happy New Year!

Heh! My New Year if off to a lazy start. I waited to see the ball drop last night and then took cold meds. I woke up after noon. So much for our New Year's hike! Maybe tomorrow! :P

Happy New Year to all of you!

My two aren't party animals, either. Although, Marge did proceed to jump all over everyone in my house whn the clock struck 12 AM. Maybe she knows something we don't - I hope it means that 2011 is going to be awesome. :)

Great New Year pictures guys! Rugby had to stay home too, although I am sure he would have loved to come along!

Hello 2011 indeed!

Happy 2011! You two round little pups are total camera hogs. Maybe you need to go pro.

Party animals!!! We are so NOT party animals. Our entire household was asleep at 10pm. So that that bipeds could get up and go skiing at 9am in 2 degree temperatures. Seriously. I think these people need their heads examined. I'm just saying! Happy 2011 to all of you! (And yes, I would believe that your bitey face is much like our, although I would tend to think when you jump on each other you are probably as wide as you are tall! Heehee. You should encourage your Mom to get some pictures.... *grin*)
