That is fantastic, Chopper!

So I just talked to a friend and told her about what my grandson said. She said to tell my husband that all he can hope for is to be compared to Mrs Claus or one of the reindeer. :)

That;s so sweet, Don't you just love those grand kids? I know mine keep me fighting to be healthy and well more than anything else. I love them with all my being as I can tell you do too. Hugs to you grammy.

"Better than Santa Claus" - I like that so much more than, "She's the bomb."

Babe, I have a cookie jar that the g-kids love to help me fill. I also have a drawer in the kitchen that belongs to them. It has stickers, coloring books, markers, drawing paper, pencils, etc. It is so important to them to feel like they have special things at my house that are just for them.

So...I'm not crazy having a special box of things for Patron???

Anyhow, here's Patron meeting his second cousin on his Dad's side. Her name is Nala and she's the result of a chihuahua and yorkie match. A playdate that went cutely wrong.

I have a sinking feeling as to who is the Alpha...

Major cuteness!

Patron was too busy protecting his people from the strange dog. Nala is just about the most mellow dog I've ever met. We did have a bit of fun and Nala is so soft and cuddly.

She belongs to one of the women who works in medical records, she lets me "borrow" her for my puppy fix, Patron just happened to be back to work today.
