Kid-tested, Mother-approved

Holiday parties are super fun -- new people to meet, yummy food (hello sir, can you spare a crumb? I can twirl and spin and sit and stand), and little strawberry- and milk-flavored kiddos running around. They have delicious fingers and cheeks.  The kids loved me, and my mom has been pleasantly surprised with how well I have handled the gaggle of kiddos (four little girls under the age of three).  

Pet me in the eye?  I wiggled my tail.  

Hit me with a bouncy ball?  I wiggled, went looking for the ball, and brought it back to the baby so she could throw it again. 

"Borrow" my crate to use as a playhouse?  You got it, little lady.  

Grab my tail?
I am one patient pup.
 No problem at all!  I ignored Miss Ada for a few minutes, but then turned around and gave her a big kiss.

The kids all loved me, and I gotta say -- they were all pretty cute as well.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from Baltimore!

No way, Mom! Did you see the thermostat?
 It is WAY too cold to go outside.
I think I will just stay here in bed and hybernate until springtime.

Big news!

I celebrated my fourth birthday on November 8th with a Tivoliz family vacation. It was awesome! I love all of my redheaded family members, especially my cousin DiTa. We went hiking, wrestled, cuddled with Debbie, ate chewies, did not steal shoes or toilet paper, and drove all the way to Salisbury, MD for a dog show.  Hotel time! 

The hotel was fabulous.  Squishy beds that aren't mine.  Lots of weird smells to sniff.  The perfect girl vacation, with Jaeger-baby and Wrigley as honorary girls for a few days.  Mani/pedi's anyone?  I wanted pink nails, but Debbie said maybe later.  Pink is fierce, Debbie.  No one can stop a girl with pink nails.  Anyway, it turns out that pink nails weren't all that necessary. Wrigley and I were signed up for three days, but we both finished our Championships on the very first day!  Wrigley won Winners Dog, and I won Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best of Breed! That's right, ladies and gentlemen, I am a new AKC Champion. Just call me:
