I found out the other day that our Thanksgiving vacation to Palm Springs has been booked…it’s on!

Last year was so hectic with the new addition to the family I didn’t get to share my trip with you but rest assured I had a fabulous time in Palm Springs.  Aside from the heat of course, it’s my kind of town.  Fashionable, foodie, comfortable and relaxing…what more can you ask for?  I’m really looking forward to going again this year and I thought I’d share a few pics from the last year with you, since I haven’t gotten around to it before.  Are you ready?

I rode up there in my usual spot:

When I arrived I saw immediately that I would feel at home here:

And of course, I did make myself right at home.  There was lots of this:

Recently, our family went on a vacation.  We didn’t all go to the same place, though.  Jon, Liz & Noah went to England, and I went to stay at the lovely home my friend Stella the shitzu and her owner, Christina, for two whole weeks!

It was a brilliant holiday for everyone.  I got to play with Stella every day, lay in Christina’s bed and watch movies, eat lots of treats and I had two beds to sleep in, two bowls to eat out of, etc.  It was wonderful.  Here are a few snaps from my stay, taken by Christina:

I admit, when Liz came to the door I was less enthusiastic than perhaps I should have been.  What can I say, I was reluctant to leave!

But, when I got home, my little brother was waiting for me, and he was SO excited to see me.  I was even a little bit excited to see him.  Here we are, together again:

It’s good to be home.

Puggy Gift Tags

I know there are quite a few pug-lovers who lurk around this blog, so here’s a little something just for you!  Puggy gift tags!

Liz was inspired by these cute birdy ones at wrenandchickadee.  She made one for a friend, and then was inspired to make more because they are such fun to make!

Frenchie ones are in the works, of course, but these are available now in my etsy shop.  I also thought we should give a set away just for fun!  So, if you leave a comment below, I will use the randomizer to pick a winner on Friday.

Happy commenting!

I’m sorry I was m.i.a. this week but I was very busy entertaining visitors and working on an exciting project for my etsy shop!

And here at long last is the first-ever Henri Hopper Pet Christmas Stocking!  Can you believe I came up with this design back in 2000…and have been bugging Liz to make it ever since.  And she has only finally done it! She said it took her that long to finally learn to sew.

This one is perfect for someone named Fifi, I think…Liz is going to make me my own but I am still working on picking out fabrics.

I can’t wait to see what I receive in it!

More stockings will be added to the shop next week.  Liz and I will be working on them tomorrow.  Of course,  I will keep you posted.  Have a great weekend!
