Grammy is coming tomorrow.  We've got her stocking ready.  We hope you are almost ready for your holiday, too.  Below are some of the "almost good" pictures from our Christmas photo shoot.

Happy Holidays, everyone!  Hope you take the time to stop and do something silly this month. 

 
 
It has been a bad year.  We haven't blogged, because it was too depressing to talk about sad stuff.  We weren't sure if we would be able to keep Gracie, because she has never learned proper potty training, and that was too scary to blog about.  Also, THE TALL MAN's Father passed away last month, after a brave fight with cancer.

We fought and fought.  And we lost.  Our whole family helped Papa fight his cancer, but we lost.  We also lost our best attempts to potty train Gracie.  That said, we decided that we couldn't give her back for tinkle troubles.  We don't give up on puppies.  She wears a diaper for most of the day, and she doesn't seem to mind.  Please don't email potty training advice, since we've exhausted the subject with the help of knowledgeable people.  Her accidents are decreasing, so there's still hope.

Despite a troubled, downer year, we still have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.  Sophie, Gracie and I, Maggie Grumble, have dry fur while it is raining outside right now.  Our bellies are full.  We have four legs that work.  We are thankful for car rides, Ritz crackers and days when we are not dressed up in costumes.  We are thankful for our people who hold us up, smiling, and ask, "Who's a baby puppy girl?".  They always answer for us.  "YOU ARE!"

While I don't especially like wearing hats, I really enjoyed this event.  Sometimes I'm nervous in crowds, but I had a lot of fun today.  We keep trying new things, going to new places and it has helped me be outgoing when meeting new people and pets.

This is a picture of everyone at the Easter Parade.  Sophie couldn't go because it was 90 degrees and she can't handle the heat or prolonged walking.  Our town's Easter parade is just people wearing Easter clothes and "parading" down the street.   It is a fun time for people and pets.  Also, my foster Mom from HART sent Sophie and I a nice Easter card.  Thanks Kim!

I made a new friend.
 
 
Sofie got a two foot long bully stick.  I've been  helping her eat it, since she is a little slow.  I got dog treats and a hairbrush.  Hairbrushes are a dumb gift, by the way.  I'm just sayin'...

Maggie and Sofie wish you the best of Christmases.  May your bed be soft, your fur dry, and may your kibble be dotted with tasty treats. Most of all, may you have someone you love to share all of this.
