I was so excited as my fwiends fwom awound the wowld showed up fow my pawty, I could hawdly stand it!
The woom was wawm and festive, we had a big twee, a bootiful menowah, lots of soft places to sit,and a table full of yummies..evewydoggie, hammie, cat and beaw wewe in the mood to stawt the holidays off with a bang.
The LadyMawia came without the west of the whippet waggle..they wewe gwounded bacause of a pwiow incident, and poow Sam I Am had to stay in the van that he dwove..I took him some blankies and a heatew, but he still was pwetty cold..I felt tewwible fow him.
So many fwiends came it was amazing! Harry bwought along baby Cassidy, but I think he must have had jet lag, cause as soon as he got comfy and the wawmth of the woom hit him, he fell asneeep,hehe
Fig bwought Petwa to her fiwst pawty evew..they insisted on sitting with Balboa
Snowball,Goofy,Chiyo,Boo Huskee, and Dopey aways seem to have a lot to talk about..they hang out so much at home,I weally think they should mingle mowe..
Scruffy and Lacie came as waindeew(we all had a good laugh ovew Scruffy's antlews which keft slipping fowawd , making him look a lot like Napoleon.
ChaChiLu and Jet found a gweat place on top of the sofa to obsewve evewything
Baby Stella sat next to Taffy who bwought hew a wed cawnation in his teef...Pinot , the youngest baby stayed close to them and looked awound with big eyes twying to take it all in.
Peanut was a little shy at fiwst and just stuck his head awound the cownew..I think he's still having sepewation anxiety fwom his Dadd going to Iwaqu, but he slowly joined us all in the fun when he saw how welcome he was.Stanley and Teka wewe aweady pwacticing theiw singing fow the cawoling to come
Noah and his sisters wewe so faw fwom home and fascinated by all the stwange customs..they awe the best behaved aiwedales I've met
Brody and Benson of the 4Bs made themselves comfy wight away..they awe such sweeties...
Snickers and Gussie wewe insepawable as oosual(whewe is that wing??could this be the occasion?)
Lola hung out with Butchy, and set tongues a wagging,heh..but then she is such a Diva that all the boyz go cwazy fow her
Penny and Shewman made fwiends with Keeley who sat neaw them..
The fouw puggies bwought theiw own pillow, just to be suwe they'd be comfowtable..they had nevew been hewe and didn't know what the woom would be like.
Ozzy and Rocky even showed up...they wew'nt suwe they wewe coming, but then Rocky was feeling bettew so they came!!!Tad wowe his special shiwt and sweatew outfit, and looked gweat as aways! he was still a lttle sad about Fig hanging out with Petwa...but we al twied to cheew him.
Zorra took a quick nap ,even though BenBen kept talking to him.... ,while Col.Sam and Katie found comfy places to sit.
Lenny , who looks soo comfowtable when he welaxes up against a pillow, sipped dwinks and talked about moosic descwibing the owigins of the Chwissmuss and Chanukah songs we wewe going to be singing. KousinKoobie ,Molly and I ,just welaxed and listened to tall the intewesting talk.
Flash couldn't keep his eyes off the food and kept licking his lips in anticipation of all the eatables
Dunstan showed up at the last minute, he hid in Jackson's luggage, I guess being neaw Lacie was just too much of a temptation to wesist.
Fow the fiwst time some of my cat fwiends came to pawty with us...I wanted them to be comfowtable and made some of Daisy's special peanut -buttew-lizawd sandwiches fow them..she stawted to eat one almost immediately..,but Momo and Opus and Roscoe, wewe content to hang out neaw the fiwe and just obsewve fow a while. Opus and Roscoe, thought they had missed the pawty, cause theiw flight fwom italy was delayed, but in the end..it was still in full swing, when they awwived.
Well all was weady fow the fun to begin!
Scruffy and Lacie bwought the biggest mistletoe-ball to hang fwom the ceiling..and Lacie stawted things off with ten minute wesewvations fow the boyz to come stand undew it with hew...then we wewe taught the dweidl game by Axel, and fwom then on, thewe was nevew a dull moment.
MY OWIGINAL PLAN WAS TO GO TO WOCKEFELLEW CENTEW TO SKATE, AFTEW WE HAD PLAYED AND EATEN WAY TOO MUCH.................BUT IT WAS SOOO FULL OF TOUWISTS,THAT I DECIDED WE SHOULD GO TO WASHINGTON SQUAWE PAWK INSTEAD(I'm basically a downtown kind of giwl anyway)
We had lots of snowball fights and a few of us twied slipping awound on the ice..to my gweat suwpwise and delight, Jackson was well enough to play ice hockey with Joey the pug, and a couple of wirey boys,Romeo and Scruffy!
Axel ,Jake and Just Hawwy (in theiw smashing yalmukas),as well as Archie and Agatha all came stwaight fwom celebwating Chanukah!
The puggies,Cricket and Daisy wewe all snuggly in theiw fuw coats.....
Of couwse my fwiends fwom Nowway,Nimbus, Bajas and Coco wewe wight at home, as was Faya who had a gweat game of tug with Lacie.
Joe in his new pawka finally had his snuggle time with Sophie laBwadow,
Bailey,Baxter and Benson wan aftew balls like cwazy..
speaking of balls Spawky wouldn't let go of his, and Butchy bwought along his football twying to tempt AmberMae to play, but she was too comfy lying awound....Keeley and Ume wewe playing hide and go seek..Col. Sam, and Zorra showed off theiw high jumping abilities, but Pacco was too cold to do it.
Maggie and Mitch wewwe smawt and wowe theiw new chwissmuss scawves to keep them wawm..Mitchy's feet kept sliding out fwom undew him on the ice...
Kirby looked totally comfowtable and used to the snow since he's fwom Chicago..it didn't fase him

I twied to get Stanley to pwefew me to his flamingo..it was hawd,hehehe
Lorenza wisely came in one of hew Gwamama's pawfect coats..she looked not only wawm ,but totally elegant!
Anothew fwiend who wasn't used to this cold was Charlie, the bootiful new collie fwiend fwom Osstwalia, but was so bwave and wanted to expewience the snow at it's fluffiest.
Little Clover and Cassidy both looked a little scawed of all the commotion and the cold too..
Randi, Marvin and Wally somehow managed to find sunny spots to just plop down in and sip wawm gwog...Ralph took the othew way of keeping wawm..wun like the wind!
Opus and Roscoe bwought theyw sleigh all the way fwom Italyand snuggled wawmly while watching evewyone,now that looks like fun!
I think we all agweed snow is lots of fun to play in..and this pwepawed us fow the upcoming skating pawty on Butchy and Snickers big fwozen pond.
Aftew we got back fwom the pawk ...we could all use a little mowe wawm gwog and hot chokolit..and then it was time to sing!!!!
What a gweat time we had!! Scruffy and Pacco both played the piano with me( I was dweaming of Stanley who was close by..and missed quite a few notes, so it was a good thing that I had some help fwom the guys)..accompanied by GirlGirl who bwought hew gowgeous pink violin!
Not to be outdone,Mitch andJackson also bwought theiw violins,and suwpwised us all with theiw accomplished playing...Koobie bowwowed his Gwampa's hawmonica, and FwasiePoo had his guitaw..Noah intwoduced us to the sounds of his didgewidoo fwom his native Osstwalia and all was accompanied by Daisy the cuwlyCat's dwumming viwtoo-ow-soty. In a pwotest Joe and Tannew left theiw dwums at home! and just pouted on the mantel.
Bob T.Beaw munched on his iwish soda bwead with huney(he bwought enough fow all of us) and tuwned the moosic pages fow me on the piano....
My Cat fwiends Sitka and Willow found comfowtable high spots to sit on..they'we still a little afwaid of so many doggies in one place.But my fwiend Sassy cat sat unafwaid by the fiwe and enjoyed the company of so many fwiendz.
Butchy and Snickers changed into the thiwd outfit of the night(they awe the best dwessed doggies along with Lorenza) ..having youw own pawsonal kootoowiaiw helps a lot..unless youw a kagillionaiw,heheh
