Snortling with Mom

Oh, will you lookee here. The movers brought in another rug. Ooooooh, this one is a nice thick rug. So whadya say, Mom? Can I snortle here too?

OK, if you insist Mom. Let me start by doing some turnarounds.

Rule #16 of Life -- never turn down a good snortle once you've been given the green light ;-)

Let the snortling begin

When the movers unrolled the carpets in our new apartment, it was time for me to get to work too! Alpha had to hold me back until the carpet was properly positioned ... and then ...

I had to do some serious "snortling", which for those that don't know, includes rubbing whole body over the carpet, and doing "froggy legs", and making my snortling sounds.

Yes, you can say it, it is incredibly adorable. I'll share more later ;-)

And here's my king bed

Like I said -- the good stuff has arrived. Now I'm just a couple-a-sheets, a down comforter, and a quilt away from snuggling up with Mom and Alpha. Yep. Right in the middle. I like to be surrounded (hee-hee).

All the comforts of home

So on this move to Germany, Alpha tells me he did things differently. He found the apartment *before* he got us on the plane.

That meant (a) we knew pretty much what furniture to bring and (b) we did not have to stay so long in a hotel.

16 nights to be precise (on this end) but who's counting ;-)

Nevertheless, when you are a little doggie, you have no idea how long you have to live in that tiny room.

So needless to say, I was *really* happy when some of my stuff started showing up. Like the leather sofa.

And like my homemade bed that Mom made just for me. Yep, I could tell I was "home" again. Woo hoo!

Even better without snow

This might give you a better feel for the woods over here. Thankfully, the snow is gone for now (we're really not supposed to get that much here). And this way, you get to see all the cool, mossy tree stumps and leaves.

Let's just say that when Alpha gets his butt out of the chair, he'll have lots of woodland paths on which to to take me running!

Though I do wonder what these elevated blinds are for? If they are hunting wild boar -- wouldn't that mean that there are wild boar in the forest? That sounds scary -- hey guys, don't get too far ahead OK?

The long and winding road

Must be in a John Lennon mood ...
The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I've seen that road before
It always leads me her
Lead me to you door
We really do have some neat forest paths over here. Right outside our back door. It's great, and it means I get lots of walks (mostly thanks to Mom, since Alpha has to work). You can see how they just undulate through the forest, and go on and on. It would be easy to become lost, but then, it's not that far to any road if need be.

You can also see the wintery wonderland that gets created in these woods, when the snow is a bit wet and heavy, and then sometimes it can get pretty cold. But Mom bundles up and takes me out anyways. Thanks Mom!

And so this is Christmas ...

And so this is Christmas ...
... and a Happy New Year ...
... let's hope it's a good one ...
... without any fear ...

Looking for your Christmas present? Well, look no further. Check out that sweater, and it will be clear to all that I'm Baaaaack! It's been over six months since I've been on the blogosphere. My apologies to those who checked back only to see the same old me each time. I may be cute, but I understand there are limits ;-) And thanks go to Alli who said the only thing she wanted for Christmas was to see her Frito-a-Day updated again. Aw shucks, Alli.

So what have I been up to you ask? Well ... moving over to Germany, for one thing. Yep, and I'll try to bring you up to date on my new digs, and some of the cool places we've already visited, and the miles and miles (oh wait, let's make that kilometers and kilometers) of forests paths where I get to take my walks. In the photo above you can see I am checking out some logs that the ForestMeister left along a trail. 

And below, I'm visiting one of the MANY Christmas markets they have all over Germany. Check out Alpha and the hat. What's up with that?

So Merry Christmas Alli! And Merry Christmas Greg! I really miss you guys and hope you'll come visit me soon. And until then, at least send me e-mail, so Mom and Alpha can read it to me ;-)
