Our Adventures With Retired Racing Greyhounds, Truly, Maggie and Walker

Let the Holidays Begin!

Yay!!  We're all on holiday vacation!  To celebrate, Sawyer and I went shopping for Christmas regalia for Those Brindle Kids.

Truly got stately gold antlers . . .
. . . in recognition of the regal boy he is.
He's such as good sport.  I love him.

Maggie got a candy cane hat with dangling mistletoe.  Maggie has always reminded me of Cindy Lou Who from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"  - the original, animated version, not the Jim Carrey version. 
This hat is perfect for her.  See the resemblence:

A face of pure innocence - just like my Maggie

 When we went to the SEGA adoption kennel, we wanted a specific dog. 
But Maggie's little, timid, smiling face changed our minds and made our hearts melt.  She came home with us.
Isn't she cute?
I think I'll go kiss her!

Since this is Walker's second Christmas, we thought traditional colors would be fitting for his antlers.

He sat on the sideline smiling the whole time Truly and Maggie were wearing their antlers.

In the end, Walker felt that he would best enjoy the holidays "antler-less."  So be it.

In true Maggie fashion, and since Walker wasn't going to wear his antlers, she borrowed them . . .

 . . . then she gave her mistletoe-candy cane hat to Paulie. 
Now everybody's happy and full of Christmas Spirit!  (Paulie agrees we're full of something, but he's not sure it's Christmas Spirit . . .)


  1. I love them! Oh, the candy cane is just too cute for words!

  2. Fabby photos. They all look very happy, even the cat:)

  3. Your kids are so cute, and so patient and happy to wear things on their heads for you. Paulie on the other hand…

  4. Totally LOVE the regalia. And the models just look fabulous! Even Paulie who doesn't look that excited about any sort of regalia.
