Their first Christmas

Christmas was very different this year,
with Jerome and Fino.
Its magic was in full bloom!
Fino and I were left alone on the 24th,
but on Christmas day, we celebrated with the rest of the family
and everything went well.
We did bark a lot during lunch,
but we were told to stay in one room and as you know,
cavaliers love human company more than anything...

Our brudder Jerome received many fun toys and new clothes,
such at this warm pj.
He had a wonderful time!
His grandpas, grandmas, uncles and aunts, all wanted
to hold him in their arms,
but mom had to explain that
they'll have to wait a little more
because he has to form an attachment to his parents first.

After the family celebration, we needed some time off.
Mom relaxed with Fino...

And so did I.
The little one is settling well: he is very affectionate
and he loves to play with me.

See you all later this week!

Another turn on Santa's lap

As I told you before, I got to see Santa
twice this year.
This time, I was by myself with the big man.
I was a bit afraid because, as you know,
I'm not quite sure the "nice" out-weighted
the "naughty" for me in 2010.
It turned out very well:
I received a big bag of treats for free!

Santa, you gotta love him!

After chasing Fino, playing-fighting for toys
and watching after Jerome, I'm exhausted...
If you look closely at the little guy, however,
you can see that he is not ready to call it quit.
OK, I'll run after you one more time!

An early Christmas gift

OK, before showing you my 2nd Holiday picture,
I have to tell you that I received an early Christmas gift.
A BIG one.

See, the doggie daycare where I stayed while my parents were in China
phoned mom last week to inform her about a baby cavalier
who had no family.

Mom first answered that she had enough on her plate,
dealing with Jerome's adaptation
to his new environment and taking care of
one "naughty doggie"
(I must assume this is me...),
but then, she
agreed to give the little one a try.

How can you resist a face like this?
His original name is Pixel, but Sophie renamed him Fino.

So far, we get along very well... except when Sophie and Philippe feed him.
I think I should be the only one in the house to get kibbles, Kongs and treats.
You already know that sharing is not my strong point, right?

Other than that, we LOVE to chase each other, which makes Jerome laugh.
And we love to relax together.

Fino is really nice with Jerome. He lets him pet him, roll on him and play with him.
How does he do that?

I think 2011 will be really exciting with so many babies in the house!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays everybody!
This year, I saw Santa twice.
This is the first picture, with my brudder Jerome.
I'll get the 2nd one this week-end.
Don't forget to read my list, Santa!

My first Christmas card!

Look at what I got in the mail:
my first ever Christmas card!
It's from my dear friend Remington and his owner Beth.
I'm so touched and happy!
What a great family!
SpongeBob is smiling for you this today!
Rem, I haven't forgotten you.
Mom ordered cards from on Etsy
from a nice US lady a while ago... and she has not
received them yet. The post here can be really slow...
She bought new ones locally
this morning and will mail them tomorrow.
It's beginning to feel like the Holidays!

All soft

Sleeping in?
After being washed, that's the best thing to do,
even UNDER my
very own pillow!
Yesterday, Jerome and I had our picture
taken with Santa. We'll receive it soon.
I had to look my best, so mom had me all wet and
applied some fancy shampoo and conditioner
from Isle of Dogs that Faith and Kosmo's mom,
the super nice Sara, sent her.
Sophie swears I've never been this soft!
I still have some mats on my chest...
Does that mean a trip to the groomer in the near future?

Who would have thought that my
toy squirrels would challenge
my big brudder?
He loves them as much as I do!
You know what?
I still can take them out much faster than he does...
but I'm watching my back!
I haven't seen much of Jerome this week
because he had to go to the hospital every day with mom.
He is fighting a virus that he probably caught in China...
We'll know for sure what it is tomorrow...
Mom says that he's been very brave.

I'm beginning to love this little guy!
I have to admit that I'm not always
on my best behavior around him, his food and his toys,
but I'm working on it.
We are both big babies with lots of energy!
And I feel we are both dearly loved.
