The Holidays are nearly here

Spread the love

Woof !!!!!!!!!!!


Mom and I have been busy as always and with the holidays creeping up on us it seems as everyone is having Christmas events for us pampered dogs.
So Mom sat with her schedule and all the dates BOL to see what she could do and fit in although there are some on the same day, plus of course Mom wants to do something for herself too, which I am not sure I agree with.


On Friday I was spoiled as Uncle Matthew came to see Mom and brought my Christmas Bag from the Shanti/PAWS project which had yumm treats, and two new toys, one I really love which is a unicorn.

Happy with her Unicorn

On Saturday there were quite a few events including the Santacon but because the weather was so bad, sheets of rain, we decided to cuddle inside instead. When the rain stopped for a little bit Mom took me to our favorite pet store and stocked me up on my favorite chews, Turkey tendons so I have a stash in the house.

Shhhh don’t tell Mom I hide them so she will get me more


On Sunday the sun appeared, so we went for a long walk to the Castro District where they were having the annual Skivvies Santa Run. This is a fun event, a fundraiser for the AIDS foundation in San Francisco. What happens is everyone congregates in skivvies at one point, and then they do a run finishing at the same place where they started. There was band playing Christmas songs and jazzy music, Santa Claus and lots and lots of skivvies with Santa Hats. I even met some dogs there joining in the fun. We took a slow walk home from there through the dog park which was great as I had a good run without my leash.

The rest of the week has been normal BOL as Mom has been doing things and I have been hibernating from the rain, but Mom is really proud of me as I have actually been walking in the rain if I need to go out. It has taken Mom nearly 8 years I think to get me to do it, better late than never. The best part is when I get home Mom doubles my treats so it is worth it.


OH!!! Before I forget one lousy thing happened this week, I got a bath. Can you believe it is raining but Mom still insists I get a bath. How dare she ! I made sure she would suffer when we got home and what I did was rolled all wet all over her bed so she had to change all the bedding. Ha I love that kind of payback.

Thank you Ally for the photo 


This coming Sunday, I am going on an adventure, as must not forget that Hanukkah is around the corner so am going to a Hanukkah party with Mom. There are going to be lots of people and children so it is going to be lots of fun. Mom says she will pack my dinner in her bag plus treats so I will not starve BOL.

I will be posting next week our Hanukkah doggy latke recipe for everyone so you can all get your humans to make you something new.


Now am going to relax, just ate lunch as I was not in the mood for breakfast, have walked Mom good today so she is tired, 


Have a wonderful warm weekend everypawdy

  1. Layla, you sound like you had the best week (except for the bath)! The skivvies event looked like a lot of fun – and what a great cause. I can’t wait to read your Hanukkah doggy latke recipe – we like trying new things!

    • Rebecca it was so much fun and LOL yes the bath is torture HA. The recipe is great and healthy and can be made all year round also. It will be on the blog this coming week.

  2. Layla, you’ve sure had some busy and festive days! Skivvies run…brrrr…okay, it’s snowy and raining here, so the thought makes me shiver! That is some stash your momma found—good for you for finding some great hiding spots! Love all the pics…especially of you and Santa Paws! Enjoy all your festivities…and I hope Mom finds a little time to relax with you, too!

    • Dorothy thanks and brrrr is true but its great to go to the fun events especially as they are walking distance from my home. Layla and her stash is just so funny and am sure there are more somewhere. I am planning relaxing time this coming weekend. Happy Howlidays

  3. I totally related to staying in when it’s raining. Plush was supposed to go see Santa Paws on Saturday but it was pouring – torrential downpours. I didn’t want to go out it, let alone bring him out. Maybe next week we can find another event Santa Paws will be at.

  4. It sounds like you had a great weekend except for the bath part. Those Skivvies are so festive! I think it is too cold to have something like that around here in the winter.
