Spreading Christmas Cheer


Could this face be anymore pathetic? It's like he pulled my sleigh to whoville with a cut off branch strapped to his head. Actually, he just came in from playing with a tennis ball for 30 minutes, so he can be a little tired. I tried placing a Santa hat on his head for the picture, but he thought the pom-pom on the end was something he should play with. Maybe for next year...

When we took him for his walk this morning (6:00 am, for those wondering) his nose was on DEFCON 3. He spotted five deer in the neighbor's yard a split second before we did and Valerie barely escaped with her arm intact.

The deer hopped across the street to another neighbor's yard, and Danny was sniffing like crazy. He was so distracted, he almost forgot to do his business. Well, almost is kind of a strong word since he always finds the most inopportune time to do his business. On the way back home, the deer found their way into our yard and we watched them hop the stone wall between our yard and the neighbor's just as the sun was peeking out behind the trees.

A worthy reward for getting up at "oh dawn thirty" (as my southern friend used to say).

It seems like a great majority of my posts about the dog gravitate towards poop somehow. Is anyone else disturbed by this?

Wow, he's *painfully* cute, and he does look like the dog from "The Grinch ..."!

Love the dog portrait!! You picked the perfect angle with a great background. ;-)
Dogs and poop just go together, so I don't find it disturbing. ;-)
