A Visit from Santa Paws


We hope you had a dog gone good Christmas!


Chloe and Gracie were good girls (mostly :) and had a visit from Santa Paws. . .


Their stocking was filled with toys and treats and Santa found cute sweaters while shopping at HomeGoods.


We should have asked Santa to bring us some sweater weather since our December has been unseasonably warm with temperatures in the 70s.


But Chloe and Gracie agreed to model with the promise of treats.





It’s a good thing Santa Paws visits dogs that are naughty and nice. . .


And leaves treats for naughty dogs that jump on the table.

    I can always be assured of getting big smiles when I visit your posts, Mary, and Chloe and Gracie sure provided that for me this morning. It looks like they enjoyed a Merry Christmas, and give so much unconditional love and happiness to you.

    They are adorable Mary! Who were the cute duo that joined them yesterday? They looked so cute as well. Enjoy the weekend. In Clemmons we are just as warm as you – I don’t like it! I want Christmas weather for here, not Florida!

    Chloe and Gracie are always ready to pose for the camera. Miss Sadie was avoiding the camera this Christmas. I barely got a decent photo of her in her Christmas plaid collar. Too warm here for a sweater this Christmas. She did get a bag of treats from Santa Paws. It took her a bit of puzzling to figure out she needed to turn the bag upside down to retrieve the goods. ;-)
    Enjoy the last of 2015. It’s been a fun year of visits lakeside.

    Precious – they make me laugh. Love their “serious” expression – especially after getting caught on the table! lol. Life would be very dull without our fur babies. Enjoying the “afterglow” of Christmas and this just adds to the day. Thanks Mary.

    Our sweet dog and puppy got new coats. Our puppy, Peaches’ new coat is covered in mud! Just like a kid in the rain standing in the muddy yard! Merry Christmas!

    Such cute girls and so obliging in such nice weather! They are so fluffy and puffy, I can’t imagine clean dogs! The whole vignette is adorable, love grays and red too, surprise! Katie got a spouting whale which I hate to give to her it’s so cute… I have real dogs whose goal is to rip out stuffing and find the squeaker…. Merry Christmas indeed for your girls~

    I always enjoy your holiday photos! I sure can relate to the “naughty” pups! Lol! Our weather has been crazy! 65 degrees here in NY for Christmas is unheard of!

    I am feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland, I’m late, I’m late!! But I am so glad I didn’t miss all this preciousness!! They are so cute they could never be naughty! :) I bet every time you grab a sweater Mary, they wag and are ready to pose knowing treats are coming!
