Window Watchin', Holidays and Candy Makin'

Hi Ya !!!!

Here I am on my throne lookin' down on all my subjects. But I just wanted ta share some of what has been goin' on around here the past week.

We love ta get up on Gram's cedar chest ta look out the bedroom window. Ya can see so much when yer so high up lookin' down ta the front street. There's my Mom checkin' out ta make sure there are no intruders about ta come in.

She's very intense when she's checkin' out the world below.

Now, from this perch, we can see the side alley. Ya know, people try ta come up that alley and get onta the front street. And me 'n Toby have ta tell 'em that we don't want 'em ta do that.

Sometimes my Mom gets cold and Gram covers 'er up so she's nice and cozy. She also likes ta use the people pillows fer her head. Doesn't she look comfy ???
Now here's baby Parker on Thanksgivin' Day. It was a bit cold that day and he was all bundled up in his Winter hat and coat. It looks ta me like he can't move at all with all those clothes on.
And here's what the diningroom table looked like on Thanksgivin' before all the guests sat down ta eat. Gram didn't take a picture once everyone was seated cause she was too busy gettin' things delivered ta the table. There were 9 of us eatin' here on Thanksgivin'.
Now that the Thanksgivin' crowd is gone, Gram had started makin' her Christmas candy. Here's some of what she had finished the other day. Chocolate covered pretzels, marshmallows, turtles, raisin clusters and peanut clusters and chocolate covered Oreos. Gram made additional varieties last night and has a few more ta make before it's all done.
Once all the candy is done, Gram makes up candy boxes fer all the people who look forward ta it every year. She always says it takes longer ta put together the boxes than it does ta make the candy. And now ya can't see the tablecloth anymore on the diningroom table cause the table is full of the chocolate candy. Good thing no one wants ta eat there again til Christmas.

Can ya believe we never get ta taste any of that chocolate ? None, nada.....no fair, I say......how can chocolate not be good fer doggies but be good fer the hoomans ????

Well, that's all fer now guys. We sure had a great week......hope yers was good too....

This is Dewey Dewster reportin' on our week in review........

Maybe she would do a white khoated groundhog fur woo?!?

Wouldn't that be just the tastiest howliday treat?!?

Before my mom moved bakhk in with my doggy nanny, she lived down the street - a mile or so - or just a khwikhk jog fur me...well, her bakhkyard was a field and she always had those whistlepigs khoming up on her dekhk - until she got a have-a-heart trappie thing and took matters into her human paws!

Little Parker looks khute and reminded my mom of when Merdie's dad (my unkhle Paul) was that age (30+years ago) - he was a winter khoat that made him look like the michellin tire guy!

Keep your girls warm!

Hi, Dewey...

I have my Look Out Spots, too...You can't be too careful with all those people walking by...

Parker gets cuter every day...But he looks like he can't wait to get all those clothes off...

Chocolate sure does smell good...But my Mom won't give it to me either...She tells the kids to make sure they don't share chocolate with me when they come, too...I don't know how anything that smells that good can be bad...Ya know??

Abby xxxooo

That is a LOT of chocolate!!! I love the perch to look out the window! I am jealous of all of it!!

Koobuss said...

Oh boy... Those candy pictures are just fabulous. I can smell the candy from here.

Loved the picture of little Parker. He is so cute!

That's a great spot that you have there to watch your street, Asta Marie. I bet you get a real good view of all the squirrels and bunnies. You are so lucky.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

You all are doing a great job taking care of the house, Dewey! I love the photo of Parker too! He's so adorable, you can lick his face for ages! *wink*

Your family's Thanksgiving dinner sounds fun! Hope you managed to steal some nibbles here and there...*grins*

My gosh...your Gram is really good at making candy! Those look beautiful! Mom says she wish she could have a bite...hehe! Too bad us doggies can't eat them...no fair, I think!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mom is drooling over all those chocolate candies! We think it's so unfair that we can't ever have any to see what they taste like!
Baby Parker looks so adorable in his hat!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi Dewey!
I tried a whole bunch of times to come and say thank you for my wonderful poem and wish you a happy Thanksgiving, but my mom broke the computer so I don't know if any of my comments reached you. So in case they didn't - thank you! And I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I love that picture of baby Parker - his hat is pawesome!!
Your Gram's candy is making my mom's mouth water!
Love Clover xo

Hi Dewey,

Thanks for checking on me.

I am fine and these two seem to be fine too. I don't get to spend a lot of time with them these days, so I am not sure! They probably are working on some important FiB (Food-in-Bowl) project...and the way things are these days - I hope they do a good job on it.

I'll be writing intermittently until December end - In Jan, I expect to be back in form:)

Dewey, those candies made my mouth water. If they don't have chocolate in them, you would probably get some - right?

And I loved the way your dining table looked:) Did you get some of that turkey...your plan of standing next to Baby Parker's chair was excellent - I am sure, it must've worked!

I agree that Asta Marie looks warm and comfortable wrapped in that blanket:) She's cute...and so is baby Parker, who's growing up fast! Funny how humans grow vertically and not laterally....the way we do!

There was a question that you'd asked - can't remember now - I'll address it through my SAQs, FAQs, and UAQs post:)

BTW, I made a short post today:)

Licks n Wags,

Ouch...THEY ARE CHOCOLATE CANDIES! I read it, but it didn't register! My mind must've gone for a walk. And you really didn't get any. That's sad.

Doesn't matter...ask Gram for KFC.

Licks n Wags,

You are great watch dogs. And my mom says humans just say chocolate is bad for dogs so that they can keep more for themselves!

Daniella said...

Thanks for your kind message DD. Hopefully the vet is right and Ax just has a bad sprain. We so hope it is only that...we also feared poison frm the mouse etc...

Will keep you posted. Thanks again.

Oh my...Asta Marie...did you use a new Foxy Clairol rinse on your coat?? It's so dark and luxurious and you colors are so sharp!! You are on bootiful girl!!!

That candy had Mumsie clawin' at the puter screen...we had to put her into Stan's crate cuz we thought she'd scratch the puter all up!! Where does ur mom get the chocolate??? Those looked fab!!!!! Mumsie makes fudge here...one of her favorite days of the year!!!



Mango said...

That is a perfect observation post to keep intruders out. Good job.


Chef said...

Oh my, Dewey. How can you be around all that chocolate and not have any?? You know, I think humans just say it's delicious. I bet it doesn't taste good at all, right? Parker is so cute all bundled up. Mama used to bundle up my brother Daniel like that in a white snowsuit and he looked like a little snowman!

Your Thanksgiving table is just lovely and so inviting.

It looks like Asta Marie loves her job of watching what's going on in the street and protecting your home and family. She's so motherly, and really beautiful!

Have a great week.
