Well, we sort of got the shaft on Christmas Day. Mom & Dad went to visit family and we had to stay home! Bah Humbug.

And what's worse, I found out Mom was hanging out with my cousin Shamis. He's a Golden Retreiver (and he's single Amber Mae!). We weren't allowed to go play with him because there were lots of humans at our Aunt Katie & Uncle Kevin's house and we play kinda rough. And Sherman likes to hump Shamis.

He's eating one of my Moo Tubes!!!! Looks like he's enjoying himself.

Anyway, we got to open our first presents tonight. We got so many, we get a couple each day for the rest of the week!! Lola & I got a big honking hedgehog. We always share presents.

Because we have so much fun wrasslin' with them.

Somehow, I always end up on the bottom of the pile.

Sherman got a bunny rabbit! It looks freakishly like the real thing. He prefers to play by himself as he can be a giant grouch about his toys.

But he's OK with that. Obviously.

Christmas is Pawesome!!

We hope everypup (and hamster and kitty) had a fantastic Christmas filled with all of their favorite things!

Wow...Look at how much fun you are having playing with your new toys. We had a great Christmas too.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Lorenza said...

Hi, friends!
Sure being alone was not fun!
I love your happy faces! Looks like you are really enjoying your toys!
Happy Holidays!

Izzie said...

You look so happy! Mama won't give me stuffies, cuz I eat the ... er ... stuffies inside 'em. I also have already destroyed three of my gifts (but not the bed. I actually like it. But don't tell mama!). And mama says the wrapping paper she didn't manage to get outta my mouth should start coming out the other end....the paper was my favorite part of the gifts, while it lasted!

Joe Stains said...

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Sherman sure was going to town on that bunny!!

Grammie said...

Good job sharing your hedgehog, girls. Sherman looks like he is trying to surgically remove the rabbits kidneys.

Maggie & Mitch said...

Looks like you all got great toys! We love Sherman's picture with his new bunny! Have you ever seen a happier boy?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Snowball said...

Although you did not get to go for visits, you still get pawsome pressies. Wow... are you going to post about your gifts for the whole week?

Looks like you all did ok with Santa and presents, but we can sympathize over having to spend Christmas alone. Our mom and dad left us on Christmas Eve (couldn't go along as Grandma doesn't like animal hair- of all things) and Christmas Day (couldn't go along there either because our uncle and aunt have 2 big dogs and a huge cat who take up all the alotted pet space besides all the human guests. And our people also came home smelling of our cousins! They were obviously playing with them while we pined away at home. Bah Humbug indeed!

Mack said...

You guys can really play good together! I wish you would come over to my house and teacher my bad sister Paris how to play good!

Peanut said...

Oh my Penny it is cool you get to open presents all week. Mom only got us one thing (she said something about money) but we got a huge box from Grammie. You and Lola look like you are having fun.

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

oh my, I bet your Mum and Dad, just loved that squeaky toy, squeaking and squeaking all through Christmas!!!!!

I loved your video, you always look as if you are having the bestest fun ever!

Merry Christmas, I hope you got my E card, it took ages to send properly for some reason.

love and licks and all good wishes to you all for the New Year.

love from Marvin and Jeannie xxxxxx

The Brat Pack said...

Can't believe you were left alone AND they gave away your Moo Tubes!!! The horror!

You do look happy playing with your new toys though...especially Shermie with that bunny. Wonder what you guys will get next!


4xBs said...

Hey kids, those are some cool toys. we got all of our pressies all at once and it was overwhelming. we didn't know which ones to play with first! your way of getting a couple every day is a pretty good system. we might try that next time.

happy woofers.

Lady Kaos said...

You guys are having lots of fun! That is totally unfair that you guys had to stay home!
Mom says that rabbit look stoo real for our house. She says I'd be chasing it around all the time. Duh! I know the difference between a real rabbit and a stuffie rabbit! Sheesh!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh wow, Shamis sure is haaaaaandsome!!! But, how am I gonna choose between Chance-Lot, Rossi & him? It's gonna be hard, really hard. Maybe I'll just secretly go out with him without telling those other two. Hehehe! What do ya think? Oh my, that moo moo's tuba sure is yummy! I bet he can sing well after eating that, keke! Oh darn, the video's not working. Will come back again to watch it but those are some nice toys!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

wally said...

Merry Christmas dudes! Sherms, I'm with you. I don't like to share, though I do like to taunt my sissy with my toys. I love the picture of the Shermantor smiling, though I'm not sure if it's the rabbit or his secret stash of Santa Bock!


Asta said...

smoochie kisses

Petra said...

It looks like you guys had the right attitude, even though you had to stay home. But you were rewarded: what great gifts you got!

Gus and Louie said...

Hey you guys do the same thing that Louie and I do with toys!! Which ever toy I have he thinks he needs.. Mom usually tries to let Louie have them though since he is teething..
That just isn't fair...

Agatha and Archie said...

OMG! We have the SAME hedgehog!! Is yours named Hedgie??We have to play with him separately or else we fight over him!! Love A+A

2shibas said...

Sherman squeaking away on his rabbit in the background is priceless! : )

Kirby said...

Yuck, you got left home alone while your parents played with another dog. At least you got a pile of prezzies to go through for the next few days. Enjoy each one!

Your pal,

Girl Girl Hamster said...

You doggies look like you had a pawsome xmas with your toys. Sherman your rabbit does look very real. :)

A few years ago we were left in dog jail for a whole week while our family went away for Christmas. Mom took it the toughest - she's still not over the guilt! Thanks for visiting my Blog. I hope you don't mind that I've added you to my favorites!

wat a handsome chap came for a visit..

Stanley said...

Hey Penny!!

Looks like your parents made up for leaving you alone & giving away precious moo tubes. But still, can't believe they would do that. I may have to re-evaluate how I feel about them.

It also looks like you & Lola sure know how to wrassle a stuffy into submission. Don't worry about grumpman Sherm. He just needs some alone time to commune with his new stuffy.

Enjoy the celebration as it continues!! WooHoO!

Goober love & smooches,

Stella said...

Hey, Pen Pen!

You and Lola Sprout Beyonce are such great wrasslin' sissies! I could watch you two ALL DAY! Wishing my Stanley would wrassle with me as much as you two (probably) wrassle together. (I think he's a little scared of me).

Oh, and about my Sherm Sherm. I understand the grumps... cuz my bruzzer Stan is getting grumpier & grumpier about certain toys of his, and about prezzies we get in the mail, and about his food (when I try to help him join the clean bowl club).

(*Sigh*) I still don't understand older men, but I sure do love them!

Please give a big kissie to my Sherm for me, and give each other gooby kissies, oh, and your mama too.

Goobness personified,
Stella Bean Latifah

Yup, I know what that's like. My mom is always going out and cheating on me with other dogs and even cats! But we're finally back at our own house and I finally get a proper peak into that box you guys sent me. Woo hoo!

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Pittsburgh pups! I finally got to dig into the package you sent. Mom got some dumb book ... humans are so weird. I love my stuffie and balls and chicken feetables. Mom just posted all about it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. One thank you for each of you. And thanks Jen, for packaging it all up, and I guess for sending that dumb book. My mom says she's going to read it and it will make me feel better. Whatever. Let me at that kitty!
