We do have a couple of photos of our Christmas gifts. As you know, Santa and his Reindogs have a delayed Christmas gift opening so that we have a chance to rest. Below, I select my favorite toy. Stella took her favorite toys to her cushion. Next photo, Stella shows me some Holiday love. Last photo, Nala shows us her wonderful form as she keeps watch by the door.
Lulu: We are pleased to announce that our cousins picked up Lulu from the rescue before Christmas and plan on keeping her for a while as a foster. We needed Lulu to make our team of 9 reindogs complete. We also needed to get Lulu into a foster home because she is indeed a lady in need. She is carried on the list of adoptable Goldens under "zzLulu" because she is part Aussie. This makes her a challenge because she also tells us she has been abused or hit by men, she does not like men very well, but men with something in their hand is especially scary for her. Combine some fear with the Aussie nervousness and high energy, and Lulu is indeed a challenge. Lulu is a beautiful lady, she has a very dark red coat, with a blaze of white on her tummy. When we first met her she barked continuously at the Chauffeur, even when he gave her a treat. Once she got used to him, she would bark again if he moved from one chair to another, or if she had been outside and came back in, any reason to bark at men. When he picked up a magazine she went wild. She needs to spend some time in foster homes to learn to trust again. She plays well with other dogs, and she likes women a lot. She is a lover, not a truster. Since everyone from our cousins home is going to spend a week here over New Years, we will get a chance to see if she can calm down with lots of attention.

Santa's complaints have started coming in. It turns out that Santa's brush with alcohol had greater impact than we had anticipated. First we had a very irate call from The Trump Tower. I tried to tell Santa that the card said "Dan at the Tramp Tower", not "Don at the Trump Tower", but he left the black velvet painting of Elvis anyway. The last time we made a mistake in delivering gifts to this address, two people got fired. We did get a nice thank you call from the Tramp Tower Homeless Shelter, they are enjoying a fine painting of water Lillie's.
Mona sent us a tweet reminding us that she is allergic to Reindog hair, and when I handed Santa the gift that he took down her chimney, apparently some hair rode along. Her nose ran all morning when she unwrapped her presents. We apologize, normally running in the air for a few hours at high speed removes all of the loose Reindog hair.
