It's That Time of The Year!

That's right, and I don't mean the Holiday Season either (although it is that too, yipee!). What I'm talking about is the time of year when it's cold enough to finally break out my Hudson's Bay Company Point Blanket!

I absolutely LOVE my Hudson's Bay blanket!  My wonderful husband Steve got me this for Christmas in 2009. The Hudson's Bay point blanket and coat played a huge roll in the fur trade industry in Canada with the native population from 1670 on, leading to the birth of a nation!  Click the link here Origin of the Hudson's Bay Company to learn more about the history of the Hudson's Bay Company of Canada, the Fur Trade and the Point Blanket.  One Hudson's Bay point blanket was used in a Canadian home for over 50 years after being salvaged from a wreck on Lake Superior and spending several years under water!  This I learned from the pamphlet chalk full of information that comes with the blanket.
Now Freddie, he's not as excited about the blanket as I am.  He's not allowed to go on the bed until one of the hounds sheets covers it at night.

"Why Momma?"  "Why can't I go on your blanket?"

Sorry Freddie Spaghetti.  No hound fur on the blanket!  Besides you've got bigger things to brood about after Detroit got all those bad penalties against the Saints last night! :(

Now, Gloria.  She just doesn't care!

"'Cause while Freddie's brooding, she's in the big comfy chair!

  1. Hi Guys,

    Great to see you on the Blog Hop! :)

    Hey Freddie, you know what?! I think Gloria might have the right idea buddy!! She looks way comfier than you do on the floor......

    Big wags,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  2. No hounds on the bed!!! No fair! No worries Freddy, you have it good. Hannah and I are only allowed on the bed on Friday night. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!!!

  3. OH. NO. That is tough Freddie. You might go back to that not so familiar couch. Or start figntin for your chair! Call a penalty on Gloria and take it up for review!

  4. That is one sad face. We think you should give in. :)

  5. That looks like a very comfy blanket!! I would be sad too if I couldn't lay on it!!

  6. That Hudson's Bay Blanket looks really comfy and cozy. I think you should let Freddie on it.

  7. The blanket is lovely, but you did highlight why I dont buy nice home furnishings/accessories, too much risk of breakage, and the hair factor. I cant resist some nice clothes though I have a few outfits I keep wrapped in plastic and am very careful to avoid dog hair in, but the stuff is in the air!

  8. It's funny, 'cause the first thing I thought when I saw the picture of that blanket was "It's a beautiful blanket, but nice blanket + dogs = many problems", LOL. Glad you have that in mind.

  9. Glad to see there's another dog mom who's a football fan! Ironically, the Saints are my favorite pro team. And my neighbors son plays for Detroit. Small world! How nice to meet you and your hounds. :)

    Oh, and I am protective of my winter quilt too. The doggies don't understand why they can't sit on it.
