Happy New Year!

Hello there!

It's been a busy, interesting Christmas week - with family visiting and feasting.  The Dog Woods Pack have been included in the festivities - with many yummy treats going around  (much to Snoopy's glee ... for some reason she's been one perpetually hungry dog since she returned from the Vet!) and new toys. 

It's interesting to note how the dogs know the difference between their new toys and old ones even though they look exactly alike.  It's funny ... like Joe and Trixie.  They would wrestle for the one TuffTire everytime we play 'Fetch' but when I produce a new one - thinking it would be nice that they each have one to carry about, they ditch the old Tufftire in favour of the new one and wrestle each other for new Tire. 

Then there's their individual colour preference.  Tuffy likes blue - give him the black and blue, you can actually see his eyes light up at the blue ... and he'd go runing after blue ball instead of black.  Joe on the other hand prefers either black or red.  

So before the next round of busy-ness sets in and I won't have time to sit down and write, I'd like to wish each and everyone of you good readers and your adorable furry members of the family a very Happy New Year.  Here's to good health and peace!

  4. Hey Tuffy & gang,
    Happy Christmas to all of you and don't have too much of the bubbly on New Year's, you hear?
    Your pal,

  5. We have been enjoying the post holiday toy shuffle ourselves. :)

    Happy new year from your friends in Vermont! :)

  6. Well we like red things, and new toys are best, until the old ones are going to be thrown out, then we like them as well.
    All the best for 2010

  7. Best of the new year to all of you.

  8. Happy New Year to you and your pack.

    Sloppy kisses,

    Mango (and Dexter)

  9. Love the glimpse into dog dynamics. Sissy and Gretchen have color preferences too, which I thought was odd, but in talking to wiser dog folks, they say no... lots of dogs seem to have a "favorite" color!

  10. For years I've heard that dogs don't see color. I know they do. Monty always chose a pink toy over any other color. Morgan likes green. I think our dogs are smarter than those so called experts.

    We all wish you and your entire family 2 and 4 footed a happy, healthy and safe 2010. We're so glad to hear that Snoopy is feeling better.

  11. Happy New Year to you too Tuffy...

    Big Sloppy Kisses

  13. We are raising a glass to all of our friends at the Bells - we hope you will join us!
    Happy New Year.

    and a dog has to have certain particularities about stuff, otherwise life would get boring.

    Well done for you being all so different.

    Ok, you know what you should do next? Give them TWO new toys at the same time so they won't fight over it! :)
