Hey, It's Mater!

Well, would you look what we saw while running errands around town. It's Mater, from the Disney movie Cars. You remember, "Yeah, like tuh-mater, but without the tuh." He's even decked out with Christmas lights. Mom just cracked up, which isn't a good thing to do while driving but she couldn't help it.

We've had some foul weather with ice here, and our house has been without electricity for two days. Last night we all went to Mom's office and slept there. That's the thing about being a boss, you can make yourself at home if you want to. We all dog-piled on the floor, and this morning the place looked like a squatter's camp with bedrolls and clothes thrown all around. What a mess. The Family is beginning to feel a big doggy themselves, so it may be a hotel tonight. I didn't mind at all, as dogs can sleep just about anywhere, but apparently humans get up a wee bit grumpy in the morning without their ususal routine.

We're getting excited about Christmas. College Kid came home last weekend and put up a tree with all kinds of decorations and lights flashing. Now the bottom is blocked with boxes and bows so we can't sniff as close as we want to. This is good for Cap, as he gets a bit confused about trees being in the house and just what we're supposed to do about it. Silly old dog.

With all the news about the Montreal WFTs and their horrible situation, and pray that this will be resolved quickly. No dog deserves to suffer like those poor pups, and we have a special place in our hearts for all terriers. Even though we are camping out at the moment, we feel very lucky indeed. We're clean, groomed, well-fed and most of all, loved by The Family. That's the best Christmas a dog could have.

We heard about OK on the news and thought about you guys down there. We like camping here, although Zorra doesn't much. Of course, camping inside probably isn't as nice as camping outside in a tent.

Here's hoping you can get electricity back soon!
