Turn up your volume and listen to my tunes..wooooof!

I am dog. I believe in unconditional love. I do not settle for infatuation or puppy love. I believe in true love to the end. I am a life-long lover who will lie at your feet, on the bed, by your chair, at your side. I am dog. I insist on your love. I will stay on a grave of a lover until my end. I believe in commitment. When we have chosen each other, I will be there for you with plenty. Out of my heart flows life and love. You fill my life with abundance and I am fulfilled. Unconditional love is the highest gift. I am committed to love.

Christmas crazies invade Kirby's World!

Kirby here-

Yes, it's beginning to look alot like Christmas around here! We are supposed to get lots more snow, and it's like single digit temps right now which is kind of a shock to the system after some high 30 degree days. I'm thinking it's the very cold temps that have shocked my mom's brain cells into thinking that I needed to get into the Christmas spirit too. So, before I tell you about the ultimate craziness my mom put me through let me share with you some special highlights.

Since this is my first Christmas with my mom, she said I needed an ornament for the tree. It was kind of sad, she had all these ornaments for Angel Max, mom still misses him at times and from what I know he was a very cool dog. So mom ran to Shelby's Place (thrift store for Harbor Humane Society-the only thrift store going to the dogs!), to see if she could find something. All the proceeds from sales go back to the shelter so me and mom are all for shopping here! And guess what...she found one. It WAS a little white dog hanging a wreath, it now resembles me. It's amazing what permanent markers can do. Mom marked it on the back with my name and date of my first Christmas! Here is a pic (you will see one next to it on the right-this was Angel Max's first Christmas ornament, mom thought it would be cool to put my first Christmas ornament next to Angel Max's)-yeah I like that idea too:
I also got my own Christmas stocking! Mom put my name on it. Don't you like what it says:I also have a new Christmas collar. Now, normally I wouldn't brag about having to wear anything, it's really not my style, but I don't mind wearing this collar thing as I have gotten a lot of compliments. Below are some pics of me modeling it:

Okay, now let me tell you about the Christmas Crazies that have recently invaded my mom's head. First it starts with me wearing a Santa hat. I didn't do this very willingly, I made sure I worked the system enough to get treats. I guess it worked, mom got some nice pics of me and I got TREATS! I know, in the pic above I look kind of pathetic don't I. I will warn you, I'm not smiling in any of these pics, I am only going through this for the treats, and the fact that my mom laughed alot and I love to hear her laugh, even it it's at my expense (nice guy aren't I).

My mom thought it would be adorable if I posed with this Santa Bear, yeah he's a bit too close for my style. Below we are having a heart to heart about how close he REALLY needs to be. So then, if one bear wasn't enough, she pulls out another one and this one has a beard. Mom says with my little white tuff under my chin and his beard we make an adorable couple! Yeah I got more treats for this one, "hee hee", see my smarty dog smile below: So then, my mom thought we would all look adorable in my big fluffy bed! Oh yeah, more treats coming my way for this: So let's end this day on the upside shall we? Mom decided she was going to wrap some Christmas presents today and I thought I would take a good snooze. So when I woke up, guess what was under the tree: A PRESENT FOR ME!!!! I can't wait for Christmas!

Now, maybe if mom told me in the beginning there would be a present for me, maybe, just maybe I would have smiled. Hmmm...yeah right!




  1. Hi Kirby - I saw you over on Mango's blog and thought I'd pop over to say hi!

    We agree that you are very cute - although my human thinks you're MUCH more handsome than Benji! :-)

    Hey - what a coincidence - I just did my latest post about our crazy humans making us wear santa hats (and I've got a great solution to help you avoid the humiliation!) - well, I think you posed with great dignity.

    Anyway, hope you'll come over to visit me too!
