Don't you just love my candy cane striped lounge pants!
Once the food was done and the house was cleaned I tried to shine up the hounds a bit. They had a busy meet and greet coming up and I wanted them to look their best.
After their big night of entertaining they both tried to curl on my lap.
Which was good because Santa would soon be coming. By the look of them, you'd think they got into to the ole punch bowl!
Santa didn't disappoint and brought them some squeaky toys and chew bones.
Gloria even attempted to play with her toy (this is a rare event). She was doing good until it squeaked. Then she ran and hid by me.
Fred was still too tired to even stand, so he just laid on the floor and chewed on his toys. I think he kept squeaking his on purpose just to scare poor Gloria!
Awwwe.......look how enthusiastic he is!
So now that the hounds had new toys and more messy chew bones everything was good. Especially since my daughter and her husband got us this bad baby for Christmas!
This will make life so much easier when it comes to cleaning up after two messy basset hounds! Not that I look forward to a mess, but I can't wait to try it out. Today we have our kids and grandkids for boxing day dinner as we just do presents and brunch on Christmas. So throw two hounds into the mix and I'm sure there will be a mess by the end of the day. Then I will get to try our new Bissell Little Green!
