Christmas Surprises

Stella here: I wonder how many of you know Tsar, of the Portuguese Water Blog dogs.  He is just a one of a kind, rare character and I just love him.  I don't get to tell him that but I do!  The other day I got a package in the mail, that had some of the best smellings on it and my Mom laughed because I chased it all over the kitchen floor.I was having so much fun, I was laughing too.  I couldn't get a picture of Tsar off his blog so you will have to go look yourself, but he is very handsome.

We  opened the box and it was a present from Tsar to me for Christmas time.  Look at what a perfect pin of me he sent!   I let my Mom wear it because it looks so nice on her coat and it makes her think of me and Tsar all the time!

I am sure you will want to know who made this beautiful pin.  This was made at Desert Impressions by the artist Barbara Hansford.  You can find her at http://www.etsy.com/shop/hansford800  If you visit her shop she will tell you exactly how she makes them and that she makes 130 different dogs and cats.  You can tell her Sue and Tsar of the Porties sent you.

And thats not all!  Tsar and Fudge put on a Winter Concert for us.  They each sang a different Christmas song with Noah as the back up.  They should go on a tour they are such good singers, but I think they would get homesick if they went too far from home.  If, somehow you missed this Winter Concert, you really should click on it and listen.  Tsar is such a good singer and sooo handsome!

This kind of surprise is the most fun part of Christmas, I think.  Thanks for reading and I just had to tell somebody how fun its been!

Kisses, and Merry Christmas

Sue and her crew are just such nice blogger friends. That was such a nice thing to do for you, Stella. The pin is very lovely. We also enjoyed that singalong caroling the other day - we could hear them loud and clear.

Hope you aren't too buried in snow - wish we had some.

I have had a blast buying dog pins from the Etsy shop you linked to. I didn't know I had so many dog friends who maybe need dog pins!

What a fun surprise for you Stella! You and Mom sure deserve it. You is very special too. I would not have growed up half so good without your watchful eye and telling me to be nice to people and stuff.
