This year with the girls was so much fun! Grannie and Grandpa came bearing a TON of gifts! Now, They get excited just having company but when company comes in with bags and boxes (some of them smelling very good) it is all the more reason to get excited.
Daisy takes the approach of “try to open every present at the same time while wiggling your butt back and forth in excitement”. Bella is much more methodical, waiting to be presented with the gift that is hers then smelling it up and down very thoroughly before deciding if she likes it or not.
The thing is-Daisy is just as happy when you open your own present. She just wants to be a part of things. The only human gift she tried to steal was Grannie’s praline scented candle (Pralines are a very popular candy here in Savannah). I guess it smelled so good she thought she’d try to eat it! One of her favorite things was a toy in Bella’s bag. A long green squeaking dog thing. If you are on our Facebook page-its the toy she was laying on in a recent picture.
Bella did so good this year! The noise of tearing paper and the camera and all the excitement didn’t bother her much at all. She stayed right in the mix the whole time. If you held out something for her to sniff, she’d very gently sniff all over then wag, wag her tail to share in your happiness.
One of the funniest things was towards the end of the morning. Daisy had been all wound up and excited. She eventually ended up near Grandpa asking for belly rubs-which he happily obliged. He stopped rubbing but she didn’t move-and about 30 second later her head is resting on his shoe and she is just snoring away!! Like a little kid who just collapsed from exhaustion after too much excitement.
The girls came away with some serious swag. New collars, lots of treats, new toys, and a new sweater for Bella. They’ve already been enjoying a lot of it. We hope your holidays were just as fun!
It’s been a while but we are back in the blog hop! Good to see y’all again!
