Merry Christmas Everybuddy!!

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas + Happy Howlidays + Happy New Year + Thank You for being MY friend!!

Our weather has been super yucky, raining cats and dogs. So we had an indoor X-Mas photo shoot today,

Me & my Santa hat!

We had to put up with the usual SIT-STAY FOREVER command. I don't know why STINKY looked like there was a magnetic repulsion between him and I,

(mum: It's your super-bi*ch power Sunshade! Sunshade doesn't like other dogs in her personal space, and Jaffa has learned that ever since the beginning. Here he was trying to obey my command while making sure he doesn't get into Sunshade's space. Sunshade of course was oblivious to all this. She doesn't really care much about what Jaffa does nowadays because she knows he would never challenge her.)

Sporting a couple of different looks with the Santa hat,

It can STAND!!!

Mum, being the kind of mum that she is, had to come up with something.......

She wrapped my X-mas scarf around my head,

According to her, I looked like Mrs. Claus.

Mum reduced the magnetic repulsion between STINKY and I by physically pushing his STINKY butt against mine,

And then a fly flew by,

Mum asked us to start caroling. Me being PERFECT and all started right away while he was still processing what was said,

Finally, it was processed (takes him a while), and he started caroling too, in his own way.....

Mum said STOP. So I stopped immediately, mouf sealed! He of course, was again, still processing the request,

One PERFECT caroler, one STINKY caroler,

Then I got tired so I laid down, and his face turned constipated,

He was constipated for a long time,

(mum: so the rule here is that Miss Bossy Face is allowed to touch Jaffa, but Jaffa isn't allowed to touch her. If Sunshade was on the bed first, then he isn't allowed to get into her personal space. However, if he was on the bed first, she could go and lie on top of him if she wanted (not that she does) to. He wouldn't do anything about it. While I have seen Jaffa get annoyed at other dogs, he just lets his Sunshade get away with anything and still loves her no matter what. Here, Sunshade decided to lie down, and she laid right against him. Jaffa knew that if he moved, Sunshade would feel him "touching" her and she would tell him off. I think on top of the personal space issue, a "touch" from another dog to Sunshade means dominance. Her being a dominant girrrrrl, that's a no no... LOL.)

My bootiful face,

His constipated face!!!!!

The constipation continued,

In an attempt to un-constipate him for pictures, mum decided to give him some treats. She delivered some into his mouf, and then left some by his feet to snap him out of it,

I saw that he didn't want to move for whatever reason, so I thought I would help him out with those treats that were probably digging into his feet,

(mum: When Sunshade is in physical contact with Jaffa, he won't move until she moves. So he didn't want to move to get the treats unless I fed them straight to his mouth (doesn't require moving). When there is food involved, Jaffa backs away even more from Miss I mean, Miss Piggy.)

MORE please mum?

You can see more of STINKY's constipation photos on his bloggie.

Wishing everyone the bestest X-mas and Happiest New Years!!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade & family

Merry Christmas Sunshade & Co! You have to assert your dominance in being top dog before the other gets the chance. I know this all too well with my Airedales.

Merry Christmas Miss Sunshade and Jaffa boy!! Miss Sunshade, you really know how to stand your ground. I'm dominate too, so understand completely! Hee hee, that's funny how poor Jaffa was afraid to move close to you or move away from you. You have him well trained!


My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Hi Sunshade, we hope that you had a Merry Christmas and that all is well at your house. It's kind of interesting how doggy dynamics work isn't it? You're the leader in your pack and that's that. We think that you and Jaffa, both look great dressed in your Santa hats.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Wonderful pictures! Sunshade, you are so lucky you ended up with an accommodating little brother who accepts your dominance.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you have a happy New Year.

We've just started our own blog, and we're going around trying to meet other bloggy pets. We love your Christmas pictures! Our Gramma took some of us by the Christmas tree, but we haven't seen them yet. Our Mama says she thinks you dogs are so cute and she wants to pet your noses!
