On Frozen Ground

Finally! So thankful it's Thursday and the ground has froze up. Which means no more muddy dog paws to wipe every five minutes and best of all all the poop is frozen when you go to clean it up! Yipee!  Oh, this makes my life sooo much easier.  Although now the poop is just turdcicles to Gloria.  I just have to beat her to it!
Since I had a little more free time today, I actually got some Christmas baking done. The hounds didn't know what to think since they didn't get to taste any as it was all chocolate today.

Gloria sat patiently waiting at her t.v. table.

"I'm ready for my cookie, Momma."

But just couldn't understand why she couldn't have a cookie to try.  Did she actually think she'd need a knife and fork?  She's such a neat freak.

"I want a COOKIE!!"

He just threw his normal temper tantrum on the kitchen floor.  He hasn't learned that it doesn't get him anywhere!  Sorry Freddie!
Now I'm off to wrap, I mean try and wrap some presents while Fred watches quietly. Ya right! Time to put in my Michael Buble Christmas CD,  pour a glass of wine (it's five o'clock somewhere, isn't it?) and wrap some gifts.  Wish me luck!


  1. Bet your house smelled good today! Poor Pups though, lol.

  2. Turdcicles - so true: I follow Danny (dachshund) and Sheila (sheltie) around the yards while scooping poop cause they find it faster than I! Love the photo of neat freak Gloria - how patient.

  3. Oh don't wrap the can make wrapping tricky.

  4. I love 2browndawgs comment! What is it about those turdcicles that attract us so much...? They are so delicious!

  5. We call them Poopsicles at our house. BOL Have a great day! Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  6. Hi Y'all,

    Since Gloria is such the "neat one" drink the wine and put some sweet treats in the oven for bribes while she does the wrapping. NILF...good way to earn them.

    Oh, did you say she needs thumbs to wrap? Nice thought though.

    Y'all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  7. Yes -- I agree -- Mike and Beth have an easier time picking those presents I leave in the yard when they are frozen....ha ha! Have a fun weekend!

  8. The best part of this Christmas card exchange is meeting new friends and getting to follow their blogs. Have a great day. I love your blog.

    pawhugs, Max, Bugsy and Knuckles

  9. chocolate makes the world sweeter for humans! good job getting the baking and the wrapping done. wine is off limits for us dogs too. guess it goes with the chocolate:)
