Holiday Update (Finally) - Part 2

Considering it is almost February, I'd better get the post-holiday blogs finished!

After Part 1 of Zuko's Shibamas Adventures, the fun continued. We headed down to Monterey, CA and stayed at the Portola Hotel and Spa. Right off Fisherman's Wharf, it was a great location for someone with a puppers to walk! Zuko greatly enjoyed walking the pier and obsessively sniffing everything in sight. He also spent time pondering the "noms" hanging out just off the shore and how he might possibly get one without getting wet.

"I know I can take them. If they would just stop hiding in that wet stuff!"

You can see more pictures from Monterey on Flickr here.

After ringing in the New Year quietly sleeping in his big comfy bed, Zuko was whisked off to Woodland, CA for more adventures. This time he was able to meet-up with the adorable @Sachisheeb - she commanded her humans to drive all the way down to meet him! Unfortunately, Zuko reacted the way he usually does with puppies (Sachi is 9 months old) - he growled and then ignored her. :-( The Shiba-people had a good time and I did manage to get a couple of pictures of the Shibas.

Cute little Sachi!

All in all, it was a good holiday season for the little Demon Dog and a good start to 2012!

Holiday Update (Finally) - Part 1

It was a very Shiba holiday season for us!

It kicked off with the International Secret Shiba gift exchange. Zuko sent his chosen gifts to  early in the month. He was very careful to pick out good Shiba gifts like cheeze and bouncy ball. Zuko also received his gifts from @iamkaiju early and was tormented by them sitting under the tree for days and days. And then something appeared in his stocking...

My Stocking iz Full!

But still he had to wait. 

The day before Shibamas was a gift unto itself. We had a mini Shiba meet-up in Redwood Shores! @furballMika was there, all the way from SoCal!  and Suki, Zuko's half sisfur, joined us! Here is a photo of all four of them (finally) sitting together:

Then, it was Shibamas morning! Zuko was very happy with his gifts from his grandma and Kaiju: 

All mine, mine, mine!

Overall it was a good start to the holidays!

Total Shibamas haul.
"It's all about the Shiba!"
