Matt must really...

love me or he was just really sick of me using his laptop all the time:-) He got me a one for Christmas :-o It's a Dell Inspiron with Windows Vista and the keyboard is so nice I swear I've typed less typos! The best part is I can download photos right off the smart card and don't have to use a stupid camera adapter- I lost the cord anyways! Thank you Matt- I love it!-when you read this....I also got an 8'inch digital frame at which my family joked that I will only put pics of me on it:-) Ha, they're half right, it will be me and the animals....
after I opened the laptop my family was like "well, damn, everything else under the tree is crap", lol. It wasn't though, we all had a fantastic Christmas. We spent Christmas eve over at my parents' house with the dogs and I'm happy to report that Peanut did very well. Last time we stayed she cried all night and wouldn't settle, much like the first few days we had her. She slept in the middle of all the festivities just like any other good greyhound would.



Limo got me back shortly after this pic was taken...I left the hat on the table while we went to Matt's parents' house and she ate it. Luckly the Santa hat was safely put away so it's still intact.
My Mom made Peanut a beautiful new doggie coat, it's fleece and snuggly!

The little brown dog is Poly, my parents' mixed breed...I got them the DNA test for Christmas (results are in), anyone want to take a gander at what she is? They listed 3 breeds and you'll never believe what they are. I'll save the results for another post!

This is my mom and her dog, Bailey, I got the DNA kit for her too as she's mixed also, but she's a fraidy cat and we decided that my mom doing the swab in her mouth would be the least detrimental to her progress trusting and liking humans:-) I'll have to post her story when her her DNA results arrive...it's a cool one I think.



Here is Poly in her favorite spot with my dad.
These were the only couple of "human" pics I took, lol, of course they had to contain their dogs in them. My mom had her camera too so she got some human shots;-) I don't say it enough, but I have the best family ever, including Matt of course even though we aren't married yet :-)





...Limo is spreading Christmas Joy to my BIL, Stephen.
I hope you all had as Wonderful a Christmas as I did!
I'm off to clean stalls now in 60 degree weather, OK, I know, that was mean!

Glad you had a great time! We have one more "Christmas" to go, Sunday at my mom's. That one is always the best (don't tell the in-laws I said that! lol)
Love your laptop... but I'm biased, I have the same one (except in purple)

Sounds like a great Christmas. You'll love that computer, I have the same one(but mine's a lot older). Love all the pictures of the dogs and will be interested in the DNA post.
We're supposed to have 60's tomorrow, maybe it will melt the snow.

What a swanky new laptop! Congrats. I'm very grateful for mine now that I'm bedridden for a while. Mine's a Toshiba Satellite with Windows Vista and it's really great except for a few upper keys that got soda spilled on them about a year ago. The keys get stuck, but thankfully they aren't keys that are used much. lol!

Your parents have such warm friendly smiles. I'm envious of you, in a good way. The best part is that they obviously love animals as much as you do. :)

Merry Christmas to you!

Not have your own laptop until Christmas? I think you were deprived! LOL Well, CP is King of the Uber-geeks, I think! We must have about 5-6 computers in our house that are useable, not to mention the boxes of parts...

I am so glad you had a good Christmas!

Sweet laptop!! I like it - looks familiar to me, an Inspiron... wonder if Dell's Inspiration was an Apple Mac Book? LOL! Don't let my computer teasing bug ya - it's like I have a sickness I cannot not pass up an opportunity to harass Dell. Good computers though - I think you'll be happy with that one. And so lucky to get one for Christmas.

Love that picture with Limo!

Okay I will take a guess at the breeds here:

Lab - mini pin - or Doberman and...lets see....something off the wall....how about Golden???

Am I close?? Let us know soon...
