Post Corgi Christmas Post

Max and Merlin wanted to share their Christmas with everyone . . . Max started a bit early, sticking his head in an unwrapped box and stealing a grunting hedgehog present before the Powers That Be (confused) even noticed.
Max notes the fact their stockings were hung nowhere near a chimney and without much care. Once reassured Santa Paws had indeed visited, the Powers That Be (filling stockings) were forgiven.Merlin showed off festive eyes, while visions of sugarplum . . . err, beef chew bones danced in his head.Max was quite pleased with his IQube and proceeded to remove the santa hat squeaky balls and leave them for a patiently waiting Merlin . . .
whose toys must be pre-approved and pre-chewed by eldest brother before Merlin gets a turn.Max smugly carried around the empty IQube the entire day, proving once again toys can go in and out the dog door fifty times a day with no ill effect. Well, nothing that the Corgi Slave can't clean and return within the hour.
Merlin got the last laugh, however, as Max did the Wyoming Two Step in a vain attempt to remove the hated "Christmas Booties" from his feet.It took the "We Are Not Amused" glare from both dogs before the Power That Be (in big trouble) relented and removed the booties. Note the patented: "Don't Even Attempt To Put Those Things On Me" look from Merlin.

And Anubis? Perched atop the stacked kennels most of the day, practicing his disdainful expression. He finds Christmas tedious, and spent 21 of his 24 hour ordeal snoozing, only appearing for turkey, and to snicker at the dogs. I didn't tell him about the neat cat apparel I found online. Yep. Booties for little cat feet.
We'll let it be a surprise.

I vote for Anubis for president (of the house).

His expression is priceless!

Looks like the Furkids had a great Christmas! Their cousin cats did not fare nearly as well... tins of premium Fancy Feast were deemed unacceptable, and "the general direction" of this Power was ignored for the day. Happy New Year to all from the Northeast!

Carla said...

Cute or what :-) Poor Merlin, he looks quite downcast waiting for his toys.
Happy New Year!

Aww, they're adorable.

Happy New Year!

Meghan - they are, disgustingly so. :) Happy New Year

Anon - that's his normal expression. Covers a wide variety of occasions from 'where's dinner, to why are those dogs in here, to where's breakfast".

Constance Brewer said...

Nonny - Some say they are spoiled... they don't think so! Happy New Year from the Wild West.

Constance Brewer said...

Carla - Merlin can pull off pathetic at the drop of a hat. Don't be fooled. :) Happy New Year!

Constance Brewer said...

Gabriele - They have 'adorable' down cold. :) Gets them lots of treats.
Happy New Year!

My friend got a kitten first of December, and the cute little thing died from eating tinsel from the tree two weeks later. He is on a mission now to warn people of the dangers of dangley christmas bulbs around kittens.
(The fleas, however, remain in the couch....)
How do you keep your cat from using ornaments as play toys?

Constance Brewer said...

Stag - I don't hang ornaments on the bottom part of the tree. *g* Our cat is not very interested in swatting ornaments for some reason. It's the dogs I have to worry more about, crashing into it playing. So we used to put a baby gate barrier around the tree.

Tinsel is evil for man and beast. No tinsel on my tree.
