9 Reindogs, ready for their journey

Above, Santa is ready for his journey.   He is inspecting the toys that the elves are putting in the bag. 
WE have spent most of the week with our personal trainer getting ready.  Yesterday our cousin picked up one year old Lulu from the rescue to spend the holidays with us.  Lulu, along with Ginger, will make the team of Reindogs a full nine.   I have been shining up my nose, getting ready.   No more mistakes like last year.  

Last year I came in for a landing in a heavy snowstorm in Michigan, I saw a nice level place and touched down.  I landed on little Timmy's trampoline, hidden beneath the snow.   Between the trampoline and Santa's big belly, it took a full two minutes before we stopped bouncing.   Dancer and Prancer (Bella and Molly), will never let me live it down.  

Then there was the time that Santa ate two rum balls and drank a glass of eggnog in Cleveland, before we were across the line into Illinois he was seeing double.  He delivered a "Tommy the Train" to a little girl named Nancy, and when he went down the chimney next door he left a "Barbie Ballerina" doll for Jonathan.   Realising his mistake, he quickly backtracked, but when you do Santa magic in a hurry you must be careful.   That is why Jonathan thinks that "Tommy the Train" always wears a Tutu. 

But enough of this Santa shop talk.   We have to get ready to make our journey.   Lulu is a little larger than our replacement Golden Reindog last year, so we have to let out the harness a little for her.  We could use a few more dog treats under the tree this year, and a few less carrots!

  1. Good luck in your worldwide journey tonight Mogley! I hope to see you flying across the sky!!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. We are so jealous, Mogley. You get to fly around the world with Santa and all we did today is watch mommie wrap Christmas presents and fill the bird feeders.

    We will be looking up to the ski tonight, maybe we can see you and the other raindogs flying across with Santa. Lots of luck!

  3. MMMM, if you don't want your carrots, you can send them here!!

  4. Fly fast tonight - you've got a lot of places to visit! We've got our cookies ready! (Mom was going to put out some scotch, too, but apparently the Utah Police are cracking down on DPUIs (delivering presents under the influence) this year, and we'd hate for you guys to get pulled over....) We'll try to stay up late enough to see if we can possibly see you!

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Good luck, Santa, and the Reindogs for a wonderful flight! We will post ourselves at several windows and see if we can't see you on your travels. You'll all be resting up tomorrow!

    Kisses and Merry flying,

    Stella, Ali Zophia the cat, and Mom

  8. Mogley,
    We will keep our eyes on the sky tonight and hope to see you.
    Merry Christmas.
