Merry Christmas from Lola & Gracie and Visit from Santa Paws

Merry Christmas from Lola and Gracie!

Santa Paws stopped by with some Christmas gifts for Lola and Gracie since they’ve been such good girls this year . . .

Sweaters, treats, and a couple of toys.

Note to Santa: Treats are really all we’re interested in!

But we’re pretty cute in our new ‘Christmas-tree-in-a-truck’ sweaters.


Maybe I spoke too soon about them being good girls. . .

 This is Lola-speak for “I want my treats!” ;)

Santa Paws shopped at Target for sweaters and toys and treats at HomeGoods.



Wishing You Love, Peace and Plenty of Treats this Christmas!

    Just love what you’ve done with the babies! Mine loves his Christmas and gets lots of toys and goodies too. He loves nothing more than when I hand him a present to tear it open for his surprise. He is like a real little boy when it comes to his gifts. By the way I love your motoring tablescape…just adorable!

    So, so sweet! We lost our Bichon Molly last month after 13 years. This makes me cry-I miss her so! Please give Lola and Gracie hugs and kisses from me! They are adorable! Merry Christmas!

      Hi Pat, I feel your pain. We lost our Chloe last February. Gracie is 13 too. Doggie kisses to you, Merry Christmas 🎄🐾🐾

      So sorry for your loss Pat. We too lost our precious pup (13 1/2) in July. I miss her being underfoot looking to taste test the goodies. She battled cancer since 2012 and they didn’t think she would live past 2014 but I’m thankful puppy prayers gave us extra years with her. They called her the Miracle Dog. It’s never enough time though. It makes every day but especially the holidays so sad but no one can grieve for us-something so personal and so hard to do. I hope you carve out a bit of merriment today.

    Miss Honey and I are waiting patiently for the rest of the family to wake up. Even at 17 years old my girl can hardly wait to see what Santa Paws has brought her this year! I absolutely love the Christmas sweaters. I think they may be the best ones yet. Merry Christmas from Lake Tahoe!

    The girls are absolutely adorable in their truck sweaters. Thank you so much for taking the time to post photos. They always warm my heart and make me smile. Did the girls’ cousins not come to visit? I was expecting a four-white-dog Christmas picture…:-)
    Best wishes for a wonderful new year.

    I just got around to viewing this. I love all their presents, and they did good taking that many pictures before treats. I love the truck pillow in the background that goes with their sweaters. I have two cats (our only children) that I love to dote on. Whenever I see your posts with the dogs I wonder if I should also get a dog! I’m glad someone else loves their pets and likes to baby them! I hope you had a great holiday season and look forward to all your posts in 2019!
