1 Week!

Now it's just one more week 'till Christmas! I'm still waiting for Lizzy to put my presents under the tree so I can take a "peek" at them. I promise I won't shred them this time, Lizzy!

While I wait, (for either Christmas or my presents, whichever comes first) I'll sing this song... (Oh, and I did not write this song, I just found it on the Small Dog Forum)

Marking Around the Christmas Tree

Marking around The Christmas Tree
What a doggie holiday
Just doing what comes naturally
Even though it's Christmas Day

Marking around The Christmas Tree
Gotta squirt each present twice
Spreading our scent on all this stuff
It's a doggie paradise

There may be some screaming when the humans rise at dawn
(but remember)
Grandma wraps her gifts in plastic
Hey - come on - it's nothing drastic

Marking around the Christmas tree
We just do what boy dogs do
Doing our duty gracefully
And we'll share our loot with you

Marking around the Christmas tree
All precautions were in vain
We must own everything we see
So we stake our doggie claim

Marking around the Christmas tree
We don't see the problem here
But if we're caught we know that we
Will be dragged off by the ear

People shout and tell us we are evil little curs
(but remember)
We're not trying to be snotty
YOU installed this indoor potty

Marking around the Christmas Tree
Gonna check our list off twice
When Santa visits, we know he
Can just sniff out who is NICE!

I'm still keeping my eye on that Rascal cat.

She's been staring at that tree for a long time now. She's probably trying to figure the best way to to climb up and catch that "bird" (angel) on the top of the tree.

Rascal's not the only one staring at that tree. Marble also seems to be waiting for the right moment to scramble up and knock everything down.

I have to keep one eye on each of them. It's a tough job, you know.

I'm just glad White Cat is too fat and lazy to climb any tree! Otherwise I'd need three eyes!


Peanut said...

I think all fat cats are lazy. Ours is laying on the arm of the couch with a blanket over it. Stupid cats. Keep an eye on the other to though.

Sophie Brador said...

Great eye ball picks! Just don't follow those kitties up the tree.


Arabella said...

I'd wait until the cats attack the tree and then go for my presents!

Tofu Burger said...

Hi Sparky!

Gots your wonderful card! Mama is in *love* with your big brown eyes! I only have little ones :)


T-man said...

What beautiful eyes you have! I have to say, those are two good looking cats. (ooh, i can't believe i said that!!)

Part of the fun is waiting :) Enjoy your wait..I'm sure Lizzy will make it worthwhile for you!


Tasha & Eva said...

Oh, Sparky, you have so much that you are resposible for. Those darn cats!! We think that your tree is very pretty!! We can't have a tree this year because of the remodeling that the humans are doing. We got your beautiful Christmas card today!! Thank you so much. You look so festive in your Santa hat!! Keep those cats in line! Belly Rubs, Tasha, & Eva.

Snowball said...

Your Christmas tree looks very pretty. You looks so cute in all the pictures.


Lorenza said...

Yes, Sparky, just a few days more for Christmas!!
I am sure you will get lots of presents!
Great close ups!
Have a good night

Charlie said...

You wouldn't really squirt that tree would you, Sparky?

LOL that song is great!

Brilliant photos (as always!!) and good work keeping an eye on those cats!


Huskee Boy said...

Hi Sparky,
Thank you for the wedding wishes!
I think you'd better stay away from the tree when Marble and Rascal decide to 'catch' that 'bird'.. trust me, you don't want to be anywhere near the 'crime scene' when this happens!

Bella said...

Hi my friends looking as gorgeous as ever It's just ONE WEEK till christmas !!!

Hammer said...

Hi Sparky
Our mum hasn't even put up the Christmas tree yet. I hope she does this soon.
Love from Hammer

Ferndoggle said...

Woo Hoo! I can't wait till Santa comes. I'm so excited to open all of my presents. We put up our tree this weekend & I haven't peed on it once! I think that fact in itself means I should get 25 bully sticks.


Ferndoggle said...

Pee Ess...we got your card, Sparky! Thanks so much. We love it!!

Lenny said...

Good job keeping the kitties off the tree, Sparky!

Your friend, Lenny

Ginger said...

Hi Sparky!!

Cool song! I haven't seen too many gifts under the tree with my name on them either. I'm started to get a bit worried!! I THINK I've been good this year - I only growled at Hero a little bit & I DID share all my toys with him, after all.

Hope you get lots of good stuff!!

Gus and Louie said...

Our kitties always hide in Mom and Dad's room. Louie jumps up on the bed after them but since he is deaf he can not hear them growling at them. He only knows that he is in trouble when those sharp claws come out... Keep your eyes on them..

4xBs said...

Hi Sparky, that's a funny funny song. maybe that's why your presents aren't under the tree yet!

hee hee.

you keep an eye on those cats. you can't trust them at all.


Girl Girl Hamster said...

Hee nice xmas song you have there to get us into the mood. Oh you need so many eyes to keep tabs on your cats

~ Girl girl

Amici said...

Keep up the good work watching those cats. Tigger (the cat living with us) tried to get me in HUGE trouble last night...which I didn't appreciate. Thankfully my Mom came to my rescue.

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Sparky,
That's a great song!!! Have you marked your tree yet?? hehehehehe.
We don't have any prezzies under the tree yet but we know Mama has something hid in her closet. Hmmmmm, and it's on the very top shelf so we can't reach it, darn.....
Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
