It's this time of year...

...Where we can dress up and act like goofs, and not care what others think...

...Where we can decorate anything with Christmas lights and it still looks pretty...
...Where I can lock the stupid cat outside in two feet of snow and not let her in, even if she does the Puss in Boots face from the Shrek movie... (Humans didn't approve. Where's their sense of humor?)

...But most importantly of all, it's this time of year where even on the cold, blue wintry days, we should still be able to find the golden beauty around us...

...The beauty of family, friendships, and love...
....Let's make this Christmas one to remember...

Merry Christmas to you all!

...With love from Sparky and the family.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Sparky,
Look what I found! I read Yahoo today and this article caught my attention, read on:
6 unusual high paying jobs:
One of it is:
Pet Psychologist
Don't be so shocked. Even Sparky sometimes needs help to keep from gnawing through the neighbor's bed of prized roses. Once the local vet has ruled out physical ailments that can contribute to rude pet behavior, people who love their animals may need to call in a trained, certified behaviorist or pet psychologist."

Haha, you should ask for some commission since they used your name, I guess, without your consent?
Muahhhh!

Hi Sparky!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! That cat looks soo cute (well as cute as a cat can look I guess, which isn't nearly as cute as you!) Love all the pictures!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Sparkyyyy! I love the 'Puss in boots' photo!! I can almost see kitty begging to be let in!! Hey, then again, we've got to be nice since it's Christmas!
Hope you had a wonderful time and wishing you and yours a new year ahead that's filled with even more joy, love and good health!

Also, we LOVE your zoomie snow photos, especially with all the little snow berries on your beard! That coat is totally STYLIN', and I'm not that into clothes, man!

Goober love & smooches,
