Countown to Christmas: Three More Days

christmas-6-2016-thek9harperlee

In the last few weeks, my human mommy has taken hundreds of photos (only a slight exaggeration) in hopes of getting that perfect picture for our Christmas cards. Tallulah Bee and I have humored her, mostly because she bribes us with treats. In fact, we purposefully look away from the camera, move slightly, or close our eyes just as she snaps so we can get more treats. Shhhh . . . don’t tell her that. It’s our little secret.

Anyway, Mommy managed to get a few favorites along the way and today we begin the countdown to Christmas. The Bee and I are modeling our gorgeous Geaux Fideaux monogrammed bandanas. If you’re interested in getting your very own Geaux Fideaux original (they’re working on Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day looks), just send an Instagram direct message to @geauxfideaux. 

We’re all smiles as we await Santa’s arrival!

On the Tenth Day of Christmas: My New Raincoat and a New Challenge

Tenth Day 1 thek9harperlee

And on the tenth day of Christmas . . . I took my new rainy-day style to the streets. You might recall that last week we had lots and lots and lots of rain and I had a little difficulty finding a raincoat to fit my extra-extra-long body. Well, friends, the soggy weather has returned, but fortunately my new raincoat arrived in the mail a few days ahead of the first raindrop. So just before dark, I slipped into my new dog boots, snapped up my new raincoat, and headed out for a brisk walk.

I absolutely adore my new raincoat. It’s lightweight and fits perfectly. Best of all, it looks nice with my new dog boots . . . which I am also starting to love. So bring on the rain, Mother Nature. I have what it takes to weather your storms.

On the Third Day of Christmas: Rain, Rain, and More Rain

Third Day of Christmas 1 thek9harperlee

And on the third day of Christmas . . . it rained buckets. The weather humans said to expect more rain tomorrow and more of the same next weekend. So my human mommy decided that it was time for me to have my very first raincoat, and she set off for PetSmart to do some shopping.

A little while later, Mommy came home with three possibilities. This was my favorite, but there was just one small problem: Turns out I’m not an extra-large girl. I’m an extra-extra-large girl. The horror! The sizing must be off, right? Or maybe I’m a little bloated from the holidays, right? Actually, I’m not so much big as I am long. I know, I know, I know . . . that’s what they all say. But really, I am kind of an extra-long girl . . . or make that extra-extra-long girl. Unfortunately, there’s slim pickings at the store when it comes to garments for extra-extra-large girls, so Mommy turned to those Amazon people, who seem to have everything in every size. My new coat should be here next week. Hopefully, it will fit. Until then, maybe I’ll cut down slightly on the treats.
