Our Christmas

Guess what, everybody? Mitch heard Santa on Christmas eve! He woke us all up at 3:45AM on Christmas morning and we went downstairs at 4AM so we just missed the big man in the red suit! DARN!!!! We checked the plate of cookie and they were all gone and Santa drank all of his milk too! We think our snackie held him until he got to the next house!

Guess what Santa brought us? Reindeer antlers! Mom says that mine was most probably shed from Dancer and Mitch thinks that his was shed from Rudolf!
This is the first time we have ever had these treats and they are Airedale tough! We're still working on them and we haven't even made a dent at finishing them off!
These antlerz are supposed to be good for us and they're not greasy and messy like a marrow bone is so we can keep them in the house mom says! whooooohooooooo If you haven't tried them yet, they get a TEN from us! Mom loves them too because it's keeping us occupied!
We got a Christmas pressie in the mail a few days before Christmas from our good buddies, Rudolf and Goofy! They sent us this adorable Dachshund stuffie dressed up as a hotdog!
And they also sent this pretty pink giggle toy that talks to us when we shake it! Um - I think they meant that to be for ME, Mitch, seeing as it's PINK!
They also sent these ice cream treats that we have never had before but we're dying for mom to open up the package so we can give them a try! We'll let you know how we LOVE them!These treats mom was kind enough to share! Bless you, mom! They are dog safe chocolate chip cookies! yummmmmmmm

Thank you so very much for our Christmas pressies, Rudolf and Goofy! That was sure super nice of you guys! We love everything that you sent to us! You are too kind!

We also got a Christmas pressie from our friend, Putter! She sent us each an Airedale ornie for our Airedale tree! Aren't they too cute?! Thank you so very much, Putter! We love our ornies so much and every year that we hang them on our Airedale Christmas tree, we'll think of you!

We did get a few other pressies and we'll tell you all about those in another posting.

Did you all happen to notice my booboo in picture #2? I have an appointment to see my vet this morning! Mom says that this is just not healing properly and it needs to be attended to! Mom is afraid that the dreaded surgery word is going to come into play but my booboo cannot go on like this any longer so we'll let you all know what the next step is!

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was good to you all!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch


  1. Hi Maggie and Mitch! You heard Santa? Wow! That was nice of you to leave him milk and cookies. What a lot of nifty presents you got - I know you'll enjoy them. Hopefully the vet will say the boo-boo is nothing major and it will go away soon. Paws crossed for good news.

    Your friend,

  2. Hi Maggie & Mitch
    You sure were excited. 4am is quite early. I didn't move until 10am on Christmas morning. Those antler ears look good.
    I hope your booboo doesn't require the dreaded surgery.
    Merry Christmas.
    Love Ruby

  3. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful day and quite a haul from Santa. Let me know how long those antlers last. We may have to contact Santa and see about getting a few ourselves.

  10. Too bad you missed the big red man. He didn't come to our place or maybe he's stuck somewhere in the roof like the water tank? Hmm. Must check out. Oooh, the reindeer antlers look delish!

    Still celebrating,

  14. hi Maggie and Mitch, that's so cool that you heard santa when he came to your house. did he slide down the chimney too? that's so exciting.

    Did we miss something? How did you get the booboo????? We hope it doesn't require yucky surgery.

    We didn't know we could munch on reindeer antlers? How strange. Bet they taste good though.

    ps. good luck at the vet

  22. Keep us posted on those antlers. My mom might get some for me if it's true that the Airedale Jaws of Death can't bite chunks off them.

  25. hi maggie and mitch..merry christmas to you!! we like those reindeer antlers too. they are also kerry blue safe...have had them for over a year and they are still chewable!!

  26. Maybe next year you will get to catch Santa before he lives your house. What a wonderful treat he left you both. I have never tried antlerz before but will be telling mommy to look out for them at the store! I hope your boo boo gets better soon!

  27. I hope you two had a great holiday. I'm a wee bit worried about your boo boo. My dog walker called me the boo boo girl when I had my knee surgery. You can borrow that nickname for awhile if you want to, since I'm not really using it right now.


  28. Where in the world do you get antlers for chewing?? I'd LOVE to have some! You guys are so lucky.
    Hope that booboo gets taken care of soon --- let that vet keep it, you don't want it anymore.

    Merry Merry!

  29. Merry Christmas to you my dear friends! Sorry to read that you didn't see Santa Claus, but he is very busy at this time of the year. Maybe next year!!
