This is a dog that has an annual Christmas party. Meet Albert. We went to Albert's annual Christmas Swap at Paul and Judy's house. What fun, every year.
I ended up with the ornament I bought! And I'm happy with that! Albert looks a little grumpy below. But perhaps the crowds make him a little worried.
Once most were gone he wanted a tummy rub! I kept him from getting into the treats on the dining room table, b/c he could reach if he stood on his back legs. lol And when we left, he seemed to say...."Why are you leaving? Don't go!" I love Mr. Albert. He's so cute.
All of our dogs got their grooming yesterday. We made it to the party on time.
We came home and then worked on cleaning up and picking up the house to get a head start on today.
Today we have to go get George's tires fixed and my oil change and get some birthday wrapping paper. I have to finish up the wrapping and do some planning for the next week.
I've invited Mom to come visit and I would go get her on Friday and take her back on Christmas Day. We have snow in the forecast possible for that day, of course. But they are not sure of the forecast - so we might have to alter our plans a bit on the timing if it IS going to snow. But we will get it figured out.
I got up about 4:30 or 5 this morning, woken up by Tugie who was trying to make a bed out of my chair pillow. I guess I need to redo her bed with a fresh blanket b/c she is tired of her bed. So I'll work on that today.
We stopped and got diapers for Tugie on the way home from the party last night. She has been peeing "lakes" and my guess is beginning to lose her control. My guess is her kidneys are starting to fail as she is drinking a lot of water and the peeing massive amounts. We are amazed that she is still with us. Bless her little heart. She walks like a really old woman but she still eats like a horse. She has been very sweet to allow me to put her diaper on. She has always let me dress her. So when we go outside we have to take the diaper off and put it back on. Thank goodness it is velcro like so you can reuse the diaper when we come back in if it is not soiled already.
The diapers were $16 a pack. I looked at a diaper made of material. I told George we'd have to have several if we went that way b/c I can't wash it every night. So we just went with disposable as at least we got a pack of them.
I need to order her more doggie shirts. I have two but we need to change them more than a couple of times a week. I do towels and such about once a week so how many ever will get me thru a week. A couple more would help. She loves her doggies shirts. It's hard to find just a basic doggie shirt in the store that is not a costume, really heavy, or has something stupid on the front. lol So Amazon here we come.
Oh that party was wonderful yesterday. So much food! Good people! Made new friends! Got to catch up with some old friends. Oh so fun!
Anyway, George is up so I'm going to fix us some eggs and get ready to go drop off his car. Ya'll take care!
