This is the season where we do dog sitting. For the past three years we have had someones dog who needed to go out of town for the holidays. This year we got TWO! Dogsitting reminds us that though we love us some dogs, they require approximately 110% more responsiblity than the cats. I never realized how much the cats clean themselves...we were knee deep in dog fur by day two.
We had Marley for ten days, he is a Catahoula Leopard and such a sweet boy!!! He is known to be a skittish dog as in his early years he was subjected to a not so nice person. It took him three days to warm up and after that he was super excited every time we came home and loved to cuddle!
The number two dog is a German Shepherd named Salvador. Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí to be exact. Sal is a German rescue around 3 years old and is in need of about 15 more pounds. He is a SUPER smart dog, yet hard headed, and a complete snuggle bug! He is soooooooooooo sweet!
He and Marley hit it off immediately! It was confirmed that they were gay lovers when 1) Marley had to go to his home and they both searched for each other for a few days and 2) When we took Sal up to meet Marley at the pet store they were in such joy they immediately tried to hump each other.
I got KK a Playstation 3 for Christmas...it was hysterical watching her open it. The squeals could be heard for miles. It is actually a good gift for the whole family as it is a Blu-Ray player and also has a nice partnership with Netflix for streaming movies right to our TV. Needless to say she got up quite early the day after Christmas ready to go shopping for some new games and was stuck to the couch for the remainder of the weekend.
I hoooked up the Playstation 2 to my TV and also...wait for it...wait for it...the ORIGINAL Nintendo NES.
Step back, that's right, my ORIGINAL Nintendo STILL works and I happen to have quite a few games for it too! After helping Larkin clean out her room the other day (you are welcome) we found about 20 NES games in her room, so we had those to play too.
Larkin and I saved the world in about 45 minutes playing some gorilla warfare game. We are just good like that. I shot a couple hostages, but in the end we got those bad Chinese looking guys. We also played Super Mario Brothers 3. Best. Game. EVA! Best quote of the game by Larkin: "Go gooo tiny baby Jesus Mario!!!"
I played Gun Smoke, Wizards and Warriors, Iron Sword and California Games for the remainder of the weekend. My thumb is sore. OH! And I attempted to play The Adventures of Link, but they only give you like three lives and then you have to start over. I need more than three. More like 70. Plus there was alot of reading. Psshaah.
As for Christmas day we went to see Avatar. AWESOME! Stop reading this now and go see it. SO GREAT! As for Christmas dinner we had IHOP. Equally as awesome! Nothing says Christmas like double blueberry pancakes with hashbrowns and scrambled eggs!
Hope your Christmas was fun!!!
