Happy Hanukkah Everyone

Spread the love

What a busy weekend last week.

TGIF!!!! Friday has arrived and our plans are to kick back and relax as we had such a busy weekend last week, especially Sunday.

On Saturday it was raining all day so Mom would take me out for quick walks or as she called them swims as the rain did not stop, we need the rain but it can also become a headache and I do not like getting my paws wet so I was riding around in my stroller BOL.

On Sunday was the annual Skivvy run which is a fund raiser for the AIDS Foundation of San Francisco, the guys run through a part of the city in underwear, they close off a street and people party, have fun and of course eat lots of food. The sun was shining, it was chilly but worth going to. Layla met the Grinch, and he was kind enough to hold her so I could get a photograph of them together. I took many photos and am sharing some of them here.

Me and the Grinch, he has weird furry green hands which kept me warm


In the afternoon we went to our annual Hanukkah party, light the Hanukkiah and eat latkes yummy. It was wonderful being with friends and celebrating the Miracle of Lights. For those that do not know the story of Hanukkah in a short version the Maccabees found oil for their lamps for one day but it lasted 8 days and that Is why for 8 days we light a candle each night, and eat fried foods, traditionally latkes and sufganiyot (jelly donuts). The children play a game with a spinning top called a Dreidel, and each time they win they get chocolate coins or as they say in Yiddish Hanukkah Geld.

Happy Hanukkah Everyone


By the time we got home Mom was exhausted and so was I but it was a diverse day of fun and well worth it.


The rest of this week we have just gone with the flow which is what Mom likes BOL, so to all my friends celebrating Hanukkah, Chag Sameach and don’t eat too much BOL


Be safe and have a wonderful weekend

Love from Layla

  1. I absolutely LOVE the photo of Layla with the Grinch! Her expression is priceless! She’s probably thinking “mom, I better get a good cookie for letting this weird guy hold me.” LOL I doubt I need to worry about her getting rewarded. The photo was well worth it. Henry probably would’ve been trying to sniff his face (mask) to see why he looked different. If nothing else the furkids are entertaining.

    Can you believe I’ve never had a latke? I’ve always wanted to try one though. I may need to whip up some doggie ones at the very least.

    Your Hanukkah pet safety tips are excellent. People don’t often think about holiday or Hanukkah pet safety tips. These are great! I’ll be sharing them and your story with all my dog parents.

    Try to stay warm and enjoy your week.

    • Terry I love the Grinch photo also, it made my day LOL and yes she got lots of treats that day, was totally spoiled as always. Latkes are delicious and I can eat them all the time LOL – as for the hazards we need to remind all pet parents as we should rather be safe than sorry. Stay safe

  2. Happy Hanukkah to you and your momma, Miss Layla! And might just add, you look so pretty in all of your pics! You are getting some good beauty rest (I see your photos on Facebook!) You are certainly having a fun holiday season, and I think my fave pic (currently because I do love them all) is the one of you with the Grinch! You always have such wonderful activities with your mom! I really enjoy being an armchair traveler with you! Pinning to share with others to enjoy!

    • Thank you Dorothy and am so happy you enjoying our adventures as I love them also and they are wonderful memories. I love the photo of here with the
      Grinch it made my year LOL. Happy Holidays and always good to see you here

  3. Happy Hanukkah Layla and Mom! I hope you enjoy the 8 crazy nights of this festival of lights. I wish I could eat some Latke’s with you, I Love them! It’s great that you included some pet safety tips for the holiday. I tweeted & pinned!

    • Thank you Cathy and I agree latkes are the best yummmm. We had a wonderful evening at the event and I agree it is so important to remind everyone of the hazards, stay safe.

  4. I think Mum needs to have you and the Grinch made into a photo canvas you look so cute and Grinch looks so REAL!

    It’s amazing how we all celebrate and (if we are lucky) get super cute photographs for our trouble LOL!! Well done you and Mum!!

    • Thanks Marjorie and the Grinch was real, a guy all dressed up LOL.. I love that photo too I think it is one of my best of her. I love going to all events for the fun
      and just to be outdoors with others. Happy Holidays
