Humans - Why do they bring shrubs in the house?

First of all - I would like to say... YIPPEEEEEE - we love all the cards we have gotten. Lenny was our very first card and all the cards have been just great. (Lenny, keep your eye out for something special in the mail!!!) Also - please don't be confused - my human not only sent out our snail mail cards(like she was supposed to), but she was so overwhlemed with Christmas spirit she convinced me we should send every doggie on the whole DWB list an e-card from our favorite website for cards - Jacquie Lawson. She makes awesome Labradory cards!!

Anyhow - this is what we did this week....

During our "Giving Thank Yous" vacation my human got a tree. The nice people at Bob's Trees put the tree in netting and tied it to the top of Jeep. Mom drove all the way back to Boston with that silly tree on our car and NOW that shrub is in our house.














I just don't get it - trees live outside all year long, but each year Mom drags one into the house?!?














Every year Mom says how much she loves Christmas, and get so excited and happy, then she brings the shrub in. There is sawing, grumbling, sweating, heaving and hooing. Mom at this point seems to loose the Christmasy glow.














I thought maybe this year we could hang my toys on the tree - I thought Lolly the Lobster would look fabulous hangin from a branch. Somehow my human and I didn't see eye to eye on this and she certainly didn't appreciate my decorating ideas.




















Finally the shrub is upright! Mom is now slowly regaining her happy face...













Alright Mom - get going and cut the netting off!














*SIGH* Yes, sawdust, limbs and netting everywhere!



















Woo Hoo - she looks to be a beauty Mom!!














Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree - how lovely are your branches....




















I give this tree FOUR PAWS UP!!



















Mom put the lights and the garland on, but apparently not my toys - what am I going to do with her??

Anyhow, my human says friends are coming over to help decorate our shrub so I will have to take more pictures when that is all done.

oh Dory and your Mama, thank you so much for your lovely e card, received yesterday!

It was so nice, it made Jeannie feel teary, but happy.

We are not in the DWB Christmas Card Exchange this year, we could not afford it, but our wishes are genuine to all our dog blogging pals.

We so much appreciated your kind thoughts and lovely e card.

It was the best.

We will put a real nice Christmas post on our blog later on in the month.

love and many licks, Marvin xxxxx

and lots of love and a few tears from Jeannie xxxxxx

Hi, Dory
Thanks for the e-card! I got it yesterday too.
I can't wait to see your tree all decorated. Maybe you can put there some of your toys when your mom is not looking!
Have a nice day

I think toys are a great idea!!! We haven't finished decorating our tree yet so maybe I can convince Mom to do it!!!

Thanks for the suggestion! Lots of Licks, Ruby

What a beautiful tree. It makes mom happy to see it. That is nice. Flash says it looks like it would be fun to pee on which is probably why we don't have one of those. :)
