Christmas and Turdsicles!

Freddie was so excited the other day about the gift exchange that he worked really hard  to help fill the stockings we got for Sammy and Wally and get them sent off to South Africa.  Many thanks to Jazzi's Momma for all her hard work putting the exchange together!


When we were done I brought out the box with Christmas cards and stamps to fill out for the card exchange.


He kind of lost interest but I edged him on and he filled out as many cards as he could......


.....until sheer exhaustion set in.

Where was Gloria you ask?

Well, now that the cold weather is here she always wants outside as the turdsicles are in full bloom!

  1. Fred my Basset man you are the best of helpers. I always have trouble with the stamps sticking to my tounge. But they do taste good. Maybe you should put a few of the turdcicles in the freezer, then she doesn't have to go outside for them.
    Blessings,

  42. Dear Basset Momma,

    I apologize for my delay in writing this to you but I wanted to thank you for stopping by Suka's blog to write such kind words of sympathy after Suka's passing. It meant a lot to me and it really helps me in my grief knowing that others care and understand. Thank you.

    I am sorry Suka did not know your beautiful Bassets. They are adorable and seem to have great senses of humor. I know Suka would have truly enjoyed visiting your blog.

    Warmly,

    K, Suka's human
