Christmas 2010 Memories

We had a wonderful Christmas which included SNOW!! It came later in the day though so Mamma and Daddy were able to travel the 30 minutes to Grandma and Grandpa's house. They watched the little one open TONS of pressies and there were even pressies for his unborn sister! She won't be here until May but everyone is VERY excited to meet her.

I just like smell baby bellybuttons- don't ask.

So anyways, we all got new beds just in time to keep us warm after a snow jaunt. Mamma also put hot water in our food so we got warm food in our bellies too!

Harry is enjoying his bed but Lilly doesn't really get the point of a bed. Or maybe she does.

Why should she lay in that bed when she can have Mamma and Daddy's king size bed?

"I am good with the big bed. Thanks Mamma!", Lilly says.

Harry sleeping peacefully...

Lilly still not sleeping in her bed.

This is me, Calhoun, practicing my zoomies in the snow the day after Christmas!

This is one of the patio chairs with snow. Melting had already begun.

Our flag at the front of the house with snow on it.

We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!

And Michael Vick is STILL an idiot...

So Mr. Vick wants a dog...

I cannot even begin to explain how vile this is.

Any thoughts from my fellow dog lovers?

Momma Heartbeat

UPDATE: I am still stewing. I suggest that he go to one of the rescues that spent countless hours and dollars cleaning up a mess that he created. Just ask one of those volunteers if they'll adopt out a dog to you MIKE. Having a dog in your life is a privilege NOT a right.

I seriously think the absurdity is going to send me over the edge. AHHHH!!!

2nd UPDATE: He actually is banned from ever owning a dog but the fact that he utters such a statement is insulting to all the people that were left holding the leashes of the dogs he terrorized and those that work everyday to rescue dogs, end BSL, and every responsible pet owner out there. He is a tough pill to swallow, especially for us Bully lovers. *Remember Calhoun is a boxer/ bulldog mix.

UPDATE: We didn't get any snow this weekend but it is FRIGID! And by FRIGID- I mean like Momma ran in 17 degree cold this morning. She's a smart one. I was quite comfortable asleep in my warm bed but I did give her the stink eye...

Here We Go Again...


As if we don't have enough craziness going on around here, what with tornadoes and all? We are supposed to get some snow on Sunday.

For all of you who get like 80 gazillion inches per year, we get like 4 and everything shuts down. Then the snow melts during the day, freezes and people crash their cars the next day.

It's all fun and games for a little bit but then my paws get cold and I just want to go inside and sleep next to Momma on the couch. And I know that my Sibe friends (Thundering Herd, Khyra, OP Pack) are gasping in horror.

Us Boxers just don't have the fuzziness necessary to enjoy this snow!

Nikki and McIver are better equipped- maybe Cheoh can teach them the snow slide!

Now for your viewing pleasure... pictures of us!

Nikki loves the snow. Isn't she pretty?

Lucy, Nikki and me playing in & eating snow!

Bad Storm Last Night (AKA end of the WUUUURRLD!)

We had a really bad storm last night. We lost power at about 8pm. Momma and Daddy were stumbling through the house to find candles and the flashlight. I just laid on the couch until they could compose themselves. Finally, they got me some light so I could sleep like a civilized pup!

I hope Puddles didn't have to endure this silliness...and I hope she didn't have to drink warm beer 'cuz her fridge went out!!! TRAGEDY!

We have yet to see the delightful "southerner" describe the incident as sounding "just like a freight train" and explaining how she "told Earl it was gonna be the end of the WUUURLD!" All the Heartbeats are born and raised southerners so we can say that without offense! We just say a prayer that one of our relatives doesn't pop up on the screen!

Main Street in our town!
 **Momma Heartbeat here. Yes Calhoun and the other furkids were rather unaware brave last night. We definitely had a storm. We aren't prone to tornadoes but I think we must have had a little one. The pictures above show the streets in our neighborhood. It was quite scary. It was so dark though we just knew it was raining and very windy. Then the transformer blew and we heard sirens. Somehow we went to bed about 9pm. And the power came back on about 11pm which scared us to death! Hopefully, we will have some daylight when I get home to take a look and make sure we didn't get any damage. Our gigantic old trees make me nervous during storms. I think we'll be fine though. I don't know how all our blog friends in tornado country do it!**
