A busy couple weeks coming up

since I just started a new job and I don't have enough vacation built up to visit the in laws in Alaska (it's their year for Christmas) we decided to go to Vegas :) We are big fans of Vegas and far be it for us to pass up a free stay!

This means that the girls will be boarded of course. I realized this will be our third Christmas with the girls and the second one they will spend at the kennel. We were home with them the first year but traveled to my parents the second.

But when we return from our 3 day Vegas stay we will have guests so that will make the girls happy! My parents are coming to visit for the Rose Bowl. Being an Ohio State Alum and living in LA I feel it is my duty to be at the game so I bought 4 tickets. Now I still need to get Ohio State cheerleader dresses for the girls but I have yet to find them in the right size. May have to settle for red tutus and bandannas :)

The girls slept all day today and had no interest in a walk so we took it easy tonight. If they get energy tomorrow, the DH will take them to the park for some fetch :) I am also sending out my Dogs With Blogs cards tomorrow so I know they might be late but better late than never!

Have a great time. I'm sure the festivities after Christmas will make the girls forget about their kennel stay in no time.

I think the kennel stay will be fun for the pooches; imagine getting to spend the holidays surrounded by all your favorite dog friends.

You just have to tell yourself that they like going to the kennel, they get new experiences and get all those great smells and barks at other dogs in :) I wish I could take mine everywhere and I did when I just had Lennox, he's escaped from hotel rooms in several cities..hehehe...

Hi Girls,

Wow you get to go to the doggy spa for the holiday. What fun you'll have with all the other doggies! I bet more fun than your pawrents will have in Vegas.

(I had my mami type this message for me. She's my secretary. I will go with her to the mailbox to drop off my card for you though. I love to go to the mailbox!)
