I wish I could take credit for setting this shot up but it's all Bella...
Crazy, lazy, spoiled dog.
Just waiting for that ball to drop so we can go to bed.
Happy New Year, friends!
You made 2012 wonderful for us.

I feel terrible that I forgot to include Haopee from My Dogs Love Me for their gracious gift to us this season. See, they won a contest over at Dogs N Paws but because the prize could only be shipped to the US, they gave us their prize instead! I offered to have it mailed to them in the Philippines but they wouldn't hear of it.
So Bella has a nice new reflective collar. It arrived yesterday and I haven't gotten a picture of it yet but it looks great. And I promise, Haopee, I'll send a picture right over as soon as I get it. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. And thank you Dogs N Paws for running the contest! What a fabulous bunch this community is.
More cards! Bella is just embarrassing us with her plethora of Christmas card goodness. Her total (including online greetings): 34!Review Tuesday: Printcopia Printcopia - Update
The humans in the household DOUBLED our stash and now are at a whopping total of (wait for it...): 2
While the post was written last week, our first giveaway contest ended this week and we have a winner: Congratulations to Hilary from Feng Shui Canines! We hope you enjoy your new 8x10 Canvas Print. And thanks to everyone who participated.Christmas photo-shoot outtakes #1 - Author's note
Thanks for all the kind words about the pictures. Bella was such a trooper for our first real prop-filled photo-shoot. It's her mom who has so much to learn. But at least I finally figured out how to get the lighting in this room of the house to work.
Czizo from Life with Beagle noted that her Lulu would have no interest in participating. So allow me let you in on my very secret secret: Treats. Lots and lots of high-value treats.
|Uh, Bella, the Santa hat is supposed to go on your head...|
|This had so much potential if only she'd kept the costume on.|
|I admire her determination in trying to keep the hat from slipping off.|
"If you want to arrange it
This world you can change it
If we could somehow make this
Christmas thing last
By helping a neighbor
Or even a stranger
And to know who needs help
You need only just ask."
|Love the lip, Bella.|
|A little nervous...|
|Gimme a kiss, pretty girl.|
|Oh, so close!|
|What are you looking at?|
|This isn't so bad after all...|
