Licks and Love for my Holiday Cards!

Hi all! It’s Dakota! If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great one! If you celebrate Chanukah, you are STILL celebrating!

I would like to thank EVERY FURRY who sent me a holiday card via snail mail!! Mom and I feel bad because this year we couldn’t send them to everyone, so we just sent them to those that we received cards from. Hopefully next year, we can send to everyone and participate in the gift exchange too!

Your adorable and beautiful cards mean the world to us!! We are posting them here, sorry that this didn’t come out great.

Cody and I were practically tied in the number of cards we received via snail mail…both of us got around 30!! Mom and Dad? We won’t talk about them BOL!

Thank you so much dear furiends!!

We love our cards!

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota

My Mom is a Grinch

Hi every woofie , it’s Dakota and while animals and people around the world are filled with joy, my sensitive Sheltie soul has been SHATTERED!

Why?

I’ll tell you why! For the past few weeks I have been watching my kitty brother receive holiday card after holiday card,  he has so many that I don’t have enough paws to count them all. EVERYWHERE I TURN THERE ARE CATS STARING ME IN THE FACE…..SO MANY THAT HE HAD TO MAKE A VIDEO TO FEATURE THEM, and his video doesn’t count the ones that came via snail mail!

 

 

Me? I have enough to count on LESS THAN TWO PAWS!!  Why? Because my thoughtless Mom added our address to my kitty brother’s card exchange list but COMPLETELY FORGOT to add mine to the WOOFIE LIST!! Don’t get me wrong! I am GRATEFUL for the woofies out there that thought of me in spite of my Mom’s inexcusable mistake…(I received cards from Easy, Sheltie Times, Dex at Fidose of Reality, Eva the Sheltie’s Mom, Ace,  and a woofie or two was sent to our family), but that is it. It’s NO ONE’S FAULT BUT MY MOM’S! You can see most of the cards for both Cody and I below, but there ARE some that didn’t make it into the collage.

If you have a Mom that was a rude Grinch and  didn’t put YOUR name  on a holiday card list, please feel free to grab our card below……….Oh and you are WELCOME to photoshop it to cut my kitty brother and my Mom  OUT  of the photo!

So, anyway, hoping you all have a more thoughtful Mom than I have, and I hope that Santa is EXTRA good to ALL of you! Thank you for visiting me when I know you have much better things to do!!!
