Merry Christmas

Good morning and Merry Christmas!  As I was getting up this morning, I crossed paths with the kids who were just going to bed.  Instead of the kids hovering around the tree at 5am waiting for Mom and Dad to get up, there was Zeke…locked in on his Christmas stocking.  (Of course, Zeke has to have his own stocking.  Of course it’s monogrammed with his name.) Our bird hunting dog won’t hunt birds, he won’t retrieve tennis balls, he’s scared of cats and the dark, but that nose knows precisely where his treats are.  He wouldn’t break his stare for the first photo.  And after telling him that he had to wait for Rachel and Eric to get up before he could get at his stocking, his shoulders slumped, he dropped to the floor and cried “no fair.”

So, Zeke and I played loops of Sean Quiqley’s Little Drummer Boy at a HIGH decibel level.  Hoping that the kids would eventually roll out of bed and we can get this party rollin’.

Here’s a little mellow wake-up music on Christmas Day by Sean Quigley banging out the Little Drummer Boy.  (Love his gloves btw.)

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Peace be with you and your family.

From,

Dave & Zeke (and the rest of the Kanigan family still fast asleep)

  12. That’s too funny, the way Zeke sits so tall when he’s waiting for his treat. Ruby does the same thing. Beautiful shots of Christmas anticipation. All the best to you and your family.

  19. My dog, knowing where the turkey is lurking, has taken to sitting in the front of the floor-level fridge with saliva pooling on the floor before her two neat forepaws. I think she believes that if she stares at the fridge door long enough, she’ll hypnotise it open.

  24. Our hunting dog is the same. He doesn’t like it outside if it’s too hot, too cold, too much grass, etc. etc.. Rabbit in the yard? Clueless. Take out a container of meat from the refrigerator? Instant attention. He so would not succeed if he actually was used for hunting something besides his food dish.
