Pittie Posse Secret Santa, Take 2!

Last year was the inaugural PPSS (you guessed it, short for Pittie Posse Secret Santa).  Secret Santa - Pittie PosseWhich make’s this year the 2nd annual!  Our buddies over at Our Waldo Bungie organize this, and we couldn’t be more grateful for being included again this year!  And there are even more possie members!

Last year Knox and Lola were gifted a super cool dragon toy with like hundreds (ok, maybe dozens) of sqeakers!  It brought hours of entertainment to these two, thanks to Kate and her crew over at Kate with a Camera.

This year we received a very prompt package from our Secret Santa!  We were so super excited to open it.  Do you have any idea who could have sent it?!

Why of course, the cold-weather experts from  the arctic tundra Chicago!  Our virtual buddies Miss M and Mr. B were gracious enough to custom make Chocko his very own adoption year hoodie!  How warm and athletic does he look in his hoodie?hoodie 006

It even makes his butt look cute 🙂

We’re amazed how perfectly it fits, and super appreciative of the very thoughtful gift.  We can add it to Chocko’s growing collection of winter wear.  Chocko even has Mr. B’s Christmas card face smack over his crate, to keep him company.hoodie 020

A Happy 4th of July

Did you all have a happy 4th of July?  We did.  

We laid very low this year due to the heat and the fact that the 4th fell smack in the middle of a work week.  We were remembering last year’s 4th, with Mr. Knox and Ms. Eve…that was a busy 4th!

This year, we did a bunch of relaxing, lounging, stooping, and people watching.  Oh and some tennis ball chewing…can never do too much of that now, right?!

We barely even got up off the sofa to stick our heads out the back door to check out the fireworks!  That’s okay…sometimes ya just need a day to do some serious stoopin’.  And in Baltimore, you can’t get more patriotic.

Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th just as much as we did!

A recipe for a Perfect Christmas

We hope everyone had a great holiday!  Despite the fact that Knox missed Lola a lot during his trip to New York to visit his Grandma, he figured out a recipe for the perfect Christmas!

It started with a lot of staring out the window waiting for the guy in the red suit who looks like a big chew toy…

Add some cookie sniffing  (He did sample some, but not directly from the table!  He was on clean-up-the-crumbs duty)

and a good amount of time opening Christmas presents with some of his favorite human relatives.  Sprinkle in some awesome chew and tug time with the dragon (thanks to the Pittie Posse Secret Santa)

And finish off with the best part of all:  Playing Ball!  Green grass!  and Chilly temps!

Nothing compares to a little bit of mud, a lot of space, and a green ball.  Even when its 34 degrees.

And maybe add in a little romp with your favorite Schnauzer…if your into that sorta thing 😉

There!  You got a recipe for the perfect Christmas!

We hope you enjoyed your holiday just as much as we did!
