My Man had a bunch of time off for Barkmas this year so we got to do lots of stuff. He was off on the 18th and didn't go back until the 2nd.
I got to play Santa Chance at my rehab vet, my vet, my friend's training place where I get get kibble in the morning (never call them treats because I will shun you for life), and the vet clinic where the vet techs carry treats for me in case we meet in the parking lot before they open. I also took stuff to neighbors and dog friends.
We got the bed and nightstands moved from my room into my Woman's old room. We got the stuff that needed to be moved from upstairs put into my room. We got the stuff from my Woman's room moved upstairs. This was all done by his 1st day of vacation.
I like having my Man's stuff in my room. He has tables for his trains and I have a bed under one of the tables. That makes 2 comfy beds in my Boy-and-Boo cave!! I use them both too.
We also started on my bed for the back seat of the truck. There's no seat back there so I can't ride in the truck. It will be like my Jeep bed and my Man says there's plenty of places to attach it too!
The neighborhood was a little sad though this Barkmas. My neighbor Buddy lost his Woman the day my Man's vacation started :-(
Just before Barkmas, our old outdoor lights started to dim so my Man went to several Ace Hardwares and found enough lights to replace them. After they did that, they found out the problem was caused by 1 strand of lights that was corroding. So, we have lights that wrap around the beam, run around the outside of my window, and run between the posts like before but we also have lights that wrap around the top rail and the stair railings. I can see really good outside on my porch with the porch lights off now!
Barkmas was a good one. My people realized on Barkmas day that Whole Foods made a mistake with our prime rib order. It was way bigger than they ordered. It wouldn't fit in our roasting pan! So, they hacked off what wouldn't fit, which was several pounds, and I got to eat the boneless prime rib meat as part of my raw meals :-) It was nummy! I got to eat cooked roast in place of my normal raw meal that night. My people almost lost fingers it was so good.
I got a bunch of toys from neighbors, Santa brought me some treats, and my people got me a tetherball made out of playground ball material and 3 stuffed animals.
When I found out Santa had made it into the house yet again without me noticing, I had to run around to all the rooms where I have buried my treats to make sure that fat bastard didn't steal anything.
I got 2 new soccer balls over Barkmas break. One was at the school and the other was at my house.
Up next time: New Year's, Fence Emergency, Man's Birfday, SONIC
