End of Weekend, End of Christmas

Man, this weekend was a BLAST! I really enjoyed the Dogs with Blogs 2nd Anniversary Chat Pawty! I'm so excited to have met so many new furry friends. I hope you all enjoyed the pawty, too!

So I woke up today, Monday morning, all happy and cheerful and still in a party mood after a wonderful weekend. I went up to my human Lizzy, and gave her a goofy little smile. So, Lizzy, what are we gonna do today?

Lizzy looked back at me and said, "Hey Sparky! Guess what we're gonna do today?"
That's just what I asked you, Lizzy. Man, sometimes I wish humans could understand doggie language.

"Guess what we're gonna do today?," Lizzy asked again. "Today we're gonna take down your Christmas cards!"

She said we were gonna take down my Christmas cards, heh heh!... Er, wait a minute... What did she say? Did she say MY Christmas cards?!

(If I didn't already enter my evil eye picture in Deetz's contest, I'm sure this one would be a real winner)

Lizzy, you can take down your one Christmas card, but not my 80 + cards! I won't let you! They're mine!

Again, I wish humans could understand doggie language. She took down my cards.

Lizzy, it's only been 5 months... Couldn't they stay up a little longer? Just 6 or 7 more months? They'll be back in season then...

Sigh... It's gonna be a long 7 months 'till I get more Christmas cards again...

Lizzie: you are too cute sweetie! You remind my mom very much of a pooch she had growing up - a poodle mix and you look very much like her. :)

and I have to say we're a tad jealous of your xmas cards - you are one popular pupper!

luv ya

PS. I soooo want a brother! I'm working on it!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, Sparky, how could she! That was mean, taking down your Christmas cards before the 4th of July - at least.

You thought our entry in the evil eye contest scared you? Well, your response to the cards scared us!

We can't wait to see all the entries that are submitted.

BrandytheGreat said...

Aww, Sparky, you look soo cute!

Joe Stains said...

I see my card there! I can't believe the nerve of your Mom, sheesh!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh no! That's sooo unfair! I think our cards should be left up hanging on the wall for years! Mine have been taken down on February. It was the most saddest day for me ciz I couldn't admire them every morning I wake up. Sigh...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Stanley said...

Hey, Sparky Bud!

My girl just took down my Christmas cards too? (Are she and Lizzie involved in some evil plot to kill our Christmas spirit?)

Your face is so expressive, man? I think you should send that evil eye photo to Deetzy and tell him that THAT is your entry. I bet he'll let ya.

I didn't get to spend much time at the chat pawty, but it sounds like it was a total blast for everydog!

Don't worry about the cards, Sparkster. You'll be getting more soon enough. Enjoy your spring weather!

Goober love & smooches,

Poor Sparky. It's sad that your cards got taken down, but it will only be a few more months before new ones come in! I'll have to make sure to send you a card this Christmas.

much love,

Lady Kaos said...

Hi Sparky!
I had a blast talking to you! I'm adding you to my list of links so I can check in on your blog daily - well, and daily as I can.
I can't believe she took down your cards! I know Lorenza in Mexico is still receiving cards so technically the exchange isn't over yet!

Gus and Louie said...

Oh that is very sad but Xmas will be here again before you know it and you will again have many wonderful cards to look at..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Chef said...

No Fair!

Sparky, I think your scary eyes let humanlizzie know just what you thought of her taking down your precious Xmas cards. Maybe next year she'll think twice. My humanlinda thinks you are a real cutiepie, by the way.

Willow the Black Dale said...

Sparky, pal I am so sorry to hear about your mom taking down YOUR cards!!! If you send me your address I will send you a just because card! I couldn't stand to see your cute little face so sad laying on those cards. Pilar had to run and hide so she wouldn't cry...hoomans.
hugs and slurps,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Sparky!
Looking at your pictures I can see how unhappy you are with Lizzie!
Kaos is right. I am still getting cards! Believe it or not I got one today!
Kisses and hugs

Moco said...

I love the picture of your bed head. Make sure you keep all those cards until this Christmas. You canhang them back up and then you will twice as many.

Hey sparky!!

My mum just recently put all my cards in a scrap book, but i agree that we should be able to leave up old christmas cards until next christmas!!

Wow that evil eye picture sure is a winner!

Jean M Fogle said...

At least now you can look forward to the next batch of cards next Christmas! YOu are one popular dog!

Awww Sparky, I can't believe Lizzie put all the cards back up when she saw that face in the last pic... how can she say no to those eyes??!!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Oh my crap Sparky! You totally scared me! I wish you coulda posted that picture for your scarey eyes photo! I'm sure that one would be a winner!

I can't believe she took down your cards...those are YOUR cards! Maybe you should tear up one of her stuffies...let her see how it feels. Well maybe don't do that, she loves on you...don't wanna take away the love!

Noah the Airedale said...

Bummer matie. We know how you feel. Our cards came down ages ago. We miss them.
Your scary eye pics are great. Winners for sure.
We enjoyed the chat pawty too. It was the best fun.

Deetz said...

You are adorable Sparky!!! I cannot believe she took down the cards. That was alot of cards Sparky and you are so fortunate to have so many friends. Christmas will be here again before you know it and you will have triple the amount of cards!!!
THAT was a great scary eye photo too, so mum went ahead and entered it also. lol

Toffee said...

I can certainly see why you are so popular sparky! OM-dog!! That photo is THE scariest photo - my mom was going to go over to Deetz's blog to ask for a late entry but she thought she'd check and see if Deetz already saw the photo - and he did! It looks like a winner! I am still trembling......

4xBs said...

oh Sparky, it's so sad to have your christmas cards disappear like that. how will you get by without them? it's going to be a very long time until christmas comes again.


Deefor said...

I thought my humans were the last ones to take them down-- Last weekend! Maybe it's good my humans don't understand doggie language.


Thor said...

Oh Sparky,
Taking down your Christmas cards wasn´t a good thing!


The Thuglets said...

Sparky..that last photo of you is gorgeous. How could she resist your pleading eyes?

Did you get to keep your cards?

Have A fun weekend.

We're sorry that Lizzy didn't listen to you. Humans need to learn dog speak! Our cards went away a long time ago, so consider your dogself lucky. We think you look very furocious in your evil eye pictures! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Deetz said...
