Sharkey Helps Decorate for the Holidays

Posted by Francesca

It isn’t officially winter yet, but snow has started to fall and  Sharkey and I were quite surprised yesterday morning to see it.  I started thinking that the guys had better finish getting the outside decorated for the holidays before more snow starts to accumulate.  I guess they were all thinking the same thing.

Well, well, well!  It looks like it snowed last night!  You know what that means, Sharkey?

Oh look, as if by magic, Gyurme has appeared.  And it seems like he's getting ready to string on the lights.

Excuse me, Gyurme - Just so you know, I'm quite good with the Christmas lights.  I can help, if you like.

Sharkey, must you always be so boastful?  You think you are the best at EVERYTHING!

I'll bet that Gyurme would rather do it on his own!

This should be a good one.  I'll just observe Sharkey's little spectacle from up here.

I have to paw it to you, Sharkey!  I take it all back.  You did a very fine job with the lights and Martha will be impressed.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Sharkey,
    I am sooooo impressed with this new skill of your's. You are very talented. That snow looks mighty inviting, anyway as long as one has a coat on. We might get a little snow tonight. Nothing big yet though. I guess everyone back East is gettin the snow---not poor us. Mom says we just have to have it by Christmas, so I have been singing White Christmas with her alot. Well, keep up the good work on the decorating. Looks marvelous!!!!!!

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • It's not Winter yet?!?! :shock: you could have fooled me with the snow and arctic temperatures we've been getting in Chicago this past week. Phooey! :mad:

    You two look so smart in those coats of yours and warm too. Good job Sharkey. Psst, pass it along to MommyMartha to blog about the farm once the decorations are all up please. I can't believe GK was hanging out inside with all that snow on the ground. HE'S THE ONE WITH THE FUR COAT!!! :lol:

  • Good Morning F & S

    Sharkey good job with the tree it is really pretty. I love to look at Christmas lights. The front of our house has all kinds of lights it looks so festive.

    Well I hope Santa wasn't watching me yesterday because if he was I know what I'm getting for Christmas - snowman turds :( I couldn't help myself I knocked Dad's book off the table and chewed it up. Of course I had some help from Sophie so she should be on the naughty list too. It was a hardback to I could only destroyed the middle section. Mom was pissed when she came home from work so I just stayed out of her way.

    I wonder what I can get into today????? ;)

  • Sharkey, You did a magnificent job in helping to decorate the Christmas tree. It looks absolutely beautiful. and the both of you girls look very fashionable with your coats. Love them.

  • Got to hand it to you Sharkey...well done job!
    Somethings wrong with this picture, G.K. with his think fur inside and you outside????
    The tree looks lovely Gyurme, but where are your coveralls?
    Grandog Annie and grandcat Kyle will come for a 11 day visit from Milwaukee while their mommie and daddie go to Florida to warm up...it will be interesting to see if Kitty will get along with them, as she usually is outside when they visit, but it is -0 and Kitty will not go out.
    Have a great and safe day everyone!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Like you two, I just love Christmas time. Mommy and Daddy put the tree up early this year; they usually wait until after the tenth of December. It’s been up for over a week now and I just love sleeping under it. They put it up on some boxes so I don’t knock down the decorations with my tail. I still manage to get a few every now and then. You did a good job with those lights Sharkey. My only question is this; why does GK stay indoors when it is so nice and cool outside? I love the cold and have to be made to stay inside. It will be a little warmer today; should get up in the upper 30’s.
    Catch you later, Kirby.
