If we'd've known what you were in for, we'd've tried to help. But we wouldn't've been much help. "Cause we would've loved to have seen that photo shoot up close and for reals. What kind of treats did you get for good effort? You guys were amazing! And you look so calm, cool and collected in that last family photo.

We hope your holidays are as festive and joyful as those photos were. We'll be showing these to friends and family. And we'll be seeing if we can grow some antlers like those that you've grown. In multi-colors, no less!

Merry Christmas, Dewey, Asta, Toby, Gram and Pap! We love you all! We're soooo glad we've gotten to know you this year. It makes this holiday the best ever!

Jake and Fergi and our people

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Woo should have barked fur me!

I'm khlose enough to have helped!

Happy HOWLidays to all of woo too!


Chef ·˙ ۛ ♥ said...

Dewey, I would have come and helped you out, but I kind of love the photo. But I can imagine what went on there trying to line you all up there with the antlers on and having to sit still. Is that why Gram and Pap are in the photo? Oh, I'd have loved to watch the action!

Well, I want to wish you and the whole pack a very Merry Christmas too. I hope Gram still has enough energy to go out and buy you your presents!

BTW, I mentioned you in my post today. I can't understand where all the squirrels have gone but I knew you'd be able to figure it out.

Bye for now.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dewey!
If I had known... Sorry you all had to endure that!
But... I am afraid to tell you... I had a good laugh looking at your pictures!
Those antlers are soooo big!
And the last picture is.... beautiful!
I wish you and your family the best!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Kisses and hugs

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh...that is hilarious!!! Those antlers are as big as you guys...they're like Mango sized!!!!!

Oh my...we wish you guys the best Christmas ever!!!!

Still laughin'...

Hi Guys!

Boy, what an indignity that must have been. Too bad that I didn't know or I would have been there to help you out. Of course, it probably would not have mattered. When it comes to this Holiday stuff the humans just seem to lose it.

Anyway, your pictures are great and you are one very good looking group! I love the family photo on the end. Gram and Pap look terrific, but Dewey, you are not smiling. You mom, Asta Marie, has a beautiful smile, but you look like you are really ticked off. Toby's not smiling either. Must be a guy thing.

Happy Holidays to you guys, too. Don't forget to let Santa in. Hehehe...

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses for Everybody,

Life With Dogs said...

What a beautiful greeting! And of course, none of us want to help you out of those costumes, you are too cute, sorry! :p

Tibby said...

Hi Dewey!
So sorry you were tortured like that! But you did get some wonderfully festive pictures so maybe it was worth it! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a joyful New Year!
:) Tibby

Mango said...

NO WAY! Remind me NEVER to visit you during the holidays if there are giant antlers involved making you look foolish and whatnot.

Momma loves the photos, but I say it is terrier abuse.


JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

That is a pawsome phote spread of you all and uh, I guess we all just have to put up with our humans antics and demands at this time of year.
Merry Christmas to you all!

Maggie and Mitch said...

You're not going to want to hear this but you guys look too cute in your Christmas antlers!
Merry Christmas to all of you!

Love ya lots

You are all looking so dearly deerish in those antlers that these two want to get some for me as well. Thankfully, it isn't easy to find a Christmas antler shop here - I am not as good-looking as you are and if I put them on...I'll have to give up my cutest doggie in the colony title.

BTW, your blog is looking wonderful. All that snow, that bunny rabbit and the snowman...it's beautiful.

Mercury is grateful to you for your encouragement:) Thanks.

I'll ask her to include you in one of the drawings. You are right - it isn't going to be easy for her to capture your charisma in her sketches...but I'll convince her that you won't mind. Will you?

Take care. A Merry Christmas to all of you:)

Licks n wags,

Maties, your asking us for help. Have you seen what we have to put up with. There is no hope for our pinkies. Christmas time is torture for us doggies.
We love your piccies. You all look too cute.
Have a great Christmas pals.

Rudy said...

Oh I had no idea you were in for such torture! We went through that a couple of years ago and it wasn't fun. You guys put up with your antlers better than we would have. Mom has to threaten us to keep stuff on our heads, so she doesn't do hats on us anymore.

You were all pretty cute though!

Merry Christmas and here's to more bloggy fun in the New Year!

Rudy, Josie, Ollie, Clancy, Emmy, and of course our Mom!

Hi Dewey,

Your comment inspired someone to make this Tiger Woods Caricature. Does it answer the question that you raised in your comment?

Forgot the link (Mercury's been shedding her absentmindedness all over the place)


Eric said...

Dewey pal, I didn't know I swear it. I'd of been over to help you quicker than you can bark Rudolph...who must be antler less now. How did you do your antler change in mid session? Did you meet Blizen and borrow his instead?

You know all the while I've been typing this Mom has been howling with laughter even rolling on the floor clutching her belly to hold in the sniggers. It isn't working let me tell you. Course I'm not laughing at all,no. Unless a good old snickering counts as a laugh. Crickey though - just thought what's in store for me?

Wishing you squillions of square love pals.Same to your Gram (who looks fab in her Christmas jumper) and to your Gramp too. Your'e bloggie is a blast and a laugh a minute! Thank you! Merry Christmas one and all.

Wiry love and kisses Eric xxx

From what I saw on the CNN, it's very cold in your place (heavy snowfall, snow-storms...) Keep warm.

Oh, BTW, I saw the terrier images that Gram had updated to her Flickr account - Jeff is really very handsome;)

Yes. Indians celebrate Christmas, Valentine's Day, and also Halloween (a recent addition.)

You said if Gram could draw she could buy chewies for you, Asta Marie, and Toby. Don't worry. Mercury can draw, but over here caricatures/cartoons aren't in demand - so even Mercury can't buy Chewies for me:(

I spoke to Mercury and told her that if Gram and Mercury got together, we could split the chewies half n half. You talk to Gram about it...if she's fine with the idea, we could get them to talk to each other. (Be careful, you might end up with that shock collar around your neck, for proposing this - I just had to talk to you about it because I can't stop dreaming about the KFC bucket that seems to have vanished from the menu.)

Stopping by one more time to wish you a wonderful Christmas Eve. And a glorious Christmas Day. Feel Joy. Know Peace. And realize Love. It's what it's all about, bottom line.

Love to all of you,

Hi Dewey,

I hope you are enjoying your holidays. I should confess that I miss your comments on my blogposts:) But don't hurry. I am sure you need a nice long break from this back-breaking blog maintenance work.

Have fun and have a wonderful New Year!

I think I'll make a post of your witty comments:)
I hope you are enjoying the Florida Sunshine. We have seen a sliver of a ray in the last four days.

Thanks for commenting and letting us what Obama is really worried about:)


William Tell said...

Oh, the things we do because we love our peeps, huh? At least antler season is only once a year. Or do they make you wear green on St Paddy's Day, and red on Valentine's Day, and...ah, shucks. Just grin and bear it. You do look cute, though. :)

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Hi Dewey,

I came to know that Florida is quite cold this year. I hope that your camper keeps you warm enough (of course, it must be much colder in the North - but probably the comfort of home could've helped.)

I hope all five of you are managing to keep warm:)


Jackson said...

Hey pals, those were some impressive antlers! Wishing you all a very happy New Year (a bit late...) J x

Hi Dewey,

Just stopping by to say hello. You need to motivate Gram into making a quick post - we want to hear about the Florida vacation:)
