The annoying Christmas cards are starting to roll in

[Holier-than-thou Papillion voice] "I’ve been soooooooooo busy this year! I’ve hardly had time to make these cards to send to you people! Yes, I’ve been keeping busy with my martini ‘n’ cigar parties, looking after the twins and my dog CPA practice. Hope you’re wellllllll!" [singsong]

Awwww, isn’t that kee-yoot? That lady’s got one of those novelty backpacks …

Vrrrroooom, vrrooooom!

… you know, the kind that look just like a … just like a …

Wow, they look so realistic up close.

Well, hi there!

I’m speechless, A. S.

Is it me, or does this tree get taller every year?

"Leroy, that’s too much tinsel on the left side … Somebody help Maybelle, she’s tangled up in the lights again … No, Betty-Bob, we can’t decorate the backside of the tree this year, because we just don’t have the — ornaments."

I'm re-e-e-ally not looking forward to putting the angel on top.

And then there were three…

According to my only real source of news, DListed, the Shiba Inu puppy cam is losing three puppehs today:

"It was announced that three of the puppies (Ando, Autumn and Akoni) will be leaving us today for their new lives!!! That leaves just AyumiAki. But they will probably be skipping out of hearts soon as well."

GOODBYE SWEET PUPPEHS! We shall miss your inappropriate licking, snorfing nap pile and stocked living room crib action.

‘Tocks ‘n’ Pads

[Sing to the tune of 'Cups and Cakes' by Spinal Tap]

‘Tocks ‘n’ pads, ‘tocks ‘n’ pads
Oh what naps this puppeh’s had!
If you’ve got to honk-shu, a striped carpet will do,
Find a nice bright sunbeam too

‘Tocks ‘n’ pads, ‘tocks ‘n’ pads
Biscuit-shaped toes are really rad
Got no visible tail, cuteness we all hail,
Sending a smooch priority mail

Chow and kibble, leg of lamb
"Yes please, sir" and "Thank you, ma’am"
Shiba cam

‘Tocks ‘n’ pads, ‘tocks ‘n’ pads
Pour some Ranch on your sal-ad
How sad it must "end"
But I’m glad I’d a friend
Sharing ‘tocks and padswith me
And pads with me…

Melina A., hopefully you and your Boston Terrier are singin’ along…

Death by Gossip

"… and Stacie and me were at the mall just now, and we found the cutest little tops, I swear to God you’ll just die when you see them, and she told me that Rhonda told her that she overheard Rachel telling Becky that Rachel’s husband had to sleep on the sofa the entire week because it was her birthday and she was really looking forward to getting the diamond pendant she’d been hinting about all year, but instead he gives her this big ugly upright vacuum cleaner, I swear it looked like something out of Star Wars, and then Becky said that’s nothing, let me tell you about the time Brad bought her the edible underwear for their anniversary, and …"
