My Christmas Card To You!

Standard

Hi Everybody!  Thanks for taking the poll about Teasers and whether you liked the way I do them now – with some easy and some hard………….looks like the most votes were cast for that so I’m leaving things the way they are…………WOO HOO!   Do you have this badge on your blog?  If not, you can swipe it and post it to tell everyone ELSE about Teaser Tuesday!!

TuesdayTeaserBadge

I’ve been receiving so many wonderful holiday cards from you in my email and Mom’s printing them out for me so I can keep them…..and even some are coming in my mail and THOSE are going up with the family cards in the doorframe around the living room door…..THANK YOU ALL!    This year I’m giving you my card HERE but if you want me to email a copy of it to you I can do that too so just let me know!

I’m visiting everyone’s blogs slowly but surely between other things around here but may I just say that ALL of you who put up holiday decorations – especially Christmas trees – are so lucky because your houses all look FABULOUS……..so many pretty decorations and beautiful trees.   Sure puts me in the mood for Christmas and I bet you feel the same way right?

Yesterday my Mom and Dad had lunch with their friends Miss Dianna and her husband Motor Man from These Days of Mine in a little town called Strasburg, Virginia.   Here’s my Mom with Miss Dianna (my Mom’s in the brown coat – Miss Dianna in the white coat!).

They had a lot of fun – and Mom brought back a present for me from my girlcatfriend the beautiful Sundae who lives with them!  It’s under my tree now and I’ve promised Mom that I won’t peek until Christmas.  It’s not easy staying away from presents under the tree – but I promised so I will be good (although at night when my Mom and Dad are asleep I might give the present a poke or two….tee hee).   My stocking is hung on the mantle with Mom and Dad’s but there aren’t any lumps in it yet…that means no little presents from them stuffed in the stocking YET.  What’s with that?  Don’t they know that Christmas is almost here?????

Stockings ready for stuffing!

Well, I’m off to see what Mom’s up to – she said something about running errands and maybe doing some shopping today……..MAYBE SHE’LL BUY SOME STUFF FOR MY STOCKING??????  YEAH!!!  I bet THAT’s what she has in mind………….

HAPPY THURSDAY!!  Sammy

All Dressed up for Christmas!

    • Hi Easy! I hope you’re feeling better? I’ve been thinking about you and hoping you’re a healthy Weimie again in time for the holidays. I just love your Christmas card – you were so sweet to send it to me. Mom says she’ll try to find a “middle of the road” Teaser for next Tuesday – just so people don’t get too discouraged….nobody wants me to win my new “I FOOLED EVERYONE” Award for THREE weeks in a row!!!!

      • I love all teasers, if I can solve it, or another friend knows where it it, it’s great. If we all have no clue, we are anyway winners, because we learnt something. I wish we had more teasers where bloggie-friends meet each other, like Doggy& the Moggies. That was a super thingy! Maybe we will find a sponsor who pays for the tickets? Maybe Mr. WordPress?

  1. Looking good in your scarf, Sammy! You have presents under your tree??? Wow! Mom has all the presents piled on chairs in the dining room and stacked in other places around the house. It’s something about how I “don’t know how to conduct myself.” I’m not sure what that means. Maybe it means I’m cute.

    Love and licks,

    • Hi Cupcake! Do you like my scarf and hat? THanks Cupcake – coming from you I know it’s sincere!! So your Mom won’t put presents UNDER the tree because she says you can’t handle it huh? Well….that is slightly insulting but doesn’t she realize that wrapped presents are just TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tempting?????? I’m sure she was just telling you in a different way that you’re adorable – maybe so adorable you can’t be trusted?????

    • Hi Tammy! Thanks for contacting us here and no of course I don’t mind you commenting on Sammy’s blog. We really don’t have all that many dog followers though – mostly cats so I’m not sure what kind of exposure we’d be able to offer The Uncommon Dog through the infographic. I think it’s a grand promotion though and wish you lots of luck with it!

      Happy Holidays!

  5. I’d say you open the gift now!
    What if it’s a fresh salmon? (not fresh anymore)
    Just open it!
    We are not putting a tree this year, Doggy called dibs on that spot and last hear he knocked the tree down a few times because the tree was where he likes to sleep.
    That’s also the place where he can look at all the entries of the house, his watchtower.

    • I can’t blame you for not doing a tree if previous trees have taken THE BIG DIVE thanks to Doggy. If the tree spot is his official watchtower then he can’t help himself! You can put all the dozens of presents from your adoring fans in a big pile SHAPED like a Christmas tree and have it in another part of the house (assuming you have made peace with the postmaster over the mixup in your address!!!!!).

  12. Sammy, that is a great card. Ours is in the video that Michelle made for all of us and will post on the blog closer to Christmas. We like you sitting on the train. All aboard! Your tree is so beautiful. Our mom finally started putting our tree up yesterday. She has three rows of branches on and lights on two of those rows. She is slower than taffy in an ice storm. We do know, however, that three of our stockings have a gift in them and that some boxes have not been wrapped yet. Yippee. We sent you an e-mail we think you might like. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
