I am LOVING having a dog! I know, you already know that, but I just have to say it again. Brodie is so great. Yes, we have certain issues, like his sock fetish and his tendency to climb baby gates if I don't double them. But for the most part, he's wonderful. I've really enjoyed him during the Christmas season. I was a bit worried about how he would do with the Christmas tree, ornaments, and presents, but he really hasn't messed with them. I did walk into the living room the morning after I put up the tree to find him lying in front of the tree, chewing on his rawhide and staring at the tree. It was so cute, like he was mesmerized by the lights! I have taken a ton of Christmasy pictures of Brodie, so here are a few of my favorites. The one with Santa was taken by a professional photographer at PetSmart on Saturday. It's actually a photo of a photo, so the quality's not so great, but I love it! Enjoy the pics, and I hope you have a very Brodie Christmas this year.
