Merry Christmas

christmas_2014_family_portrait_lifetimewithdogsChristmas has come and gone so fast but it was a nice one. Lots of laughs, smiles and doggie kisses. It was bitter sweet because Lady was not here to celebrate it with us but I know she was here spiritually. Princess and Oliver remind me daily to keep smiling and enjoy life.

I love my dogs so much and because I spoil them just a little bit, I did get them gifts this Christmas. They received nice winter jackets about a week before Christmas. I decided to give them their jackets early because it was really cold here. Let me tell you, they look so fashionable! Today they got a Bobo dog toy, a squeaky bone and dog treats. They seem very pleased with their gifts. Especially the treats!


Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas. Hope you feel stuffed with food and celebrated the birth of Jesus. Don’t forget to hug and kiss the ones you love because cherishing every moment is what counts.

What did you get your dogs this Christmas?

Merry Christmas from my pack to yours

Christmas is just around the corner (time flies so fast) and every year the center of my Christmas cards is my pack. I mean just look at them, they can make anyone smile. This year I didn’t really create a card online or offline but this photo pretty much says everything. Who needs words when a photo can speak for itself?

Below are individual photos of each of my dogs showing their Christmas spirit to you all.







I will tell you, it is no easy task catching a pack photo that looks great. Every second one of the dogs looks away, closes its eyes or jumps off the couch. Treats help but patience is the main key. I took about a hundred or so photos and kept only a few of them. But the ones that I kept really expressed the pack.

Anyways, enough about my pack, what about yours. Do you include them in your Christmas card? During Christmas how do you capture your dog in the Christmas spirit? If I do not write on Christmas, I hope everyone has a joyful and safe Christmas!
