Lessons: How to Open Your Christmas Stocking

Step 1:  Locate your stocking...
Step 2:  
Ensure your stocking has been filled, as there is no point in proceeding to step 3 if the stocking is empty.
Step 3:  Take your stocking down from wherever it has been hung.  This step really shouldn't be necessary, but for some reason that remains unfathomable - humans have this weird tendency to display Christmas stockings hung on the front of things.
Step 4:  Get a good grip on the stocking with both front feet and look inside to survey the contents.
Step 5:  Getting the contents out of the stocking is the goal of all stocking opening.  Sometimes contents will be stuck in the "toe" of the stocking and you will need to pat with your paw to dislodge them.
Step 6:  Other items will get lodged in the cuff and you will need that firm grip on the stocking while you grab them with your teeth to pull them out.
Step 7:  While it looks a bit unladylike, there may be moments when you have to put your whole head in the stocking. 
Step 8:  Persistence is the key.
Step 9:  And more persistence... 











Step 10:  Make sure you have gotten all the toys you want before you stop looking.











Lastly, if you believe you stocking contents were inadequate, it is sometimes effective to take up a stance near the stocking, with head hanging low, using your most pathetic look.  Humans are really soft-hearted and can sometimes be persuaded to make it right once you appeal to their guilt.


Merry Christmas
Have a Joyous New Year

Cutest Dang Picture...

My friend took this picture and I just have to share it...  I'm using it as the background on my computer.  I get charmed all over again every time I see it...


Isn't that just to die for? 

BTW the same friend created our Christmas video.   We went to a Christmas lights display in a nearby town and Gimme had a great time exploring.  She was fascinated to discover there are truly beautiful things in the world, without being a reflection of her lovely self.  Who knew? 

A nice little girl gave her a really cute toy, but Gimme graciously gave it back when she realized the girl didn't have another one to keep for herself.
