Actually, this looks more like a photo of The Royal "Me" (hee, hee).
But the reason for the title is that Alli was just cuddling with me, and said out loud: "I guess we'll keep him."
Alpha then noted, having had to get up in the middle of the night every two hours (along with Mom), that by "we", she must mean the "Royal We", as in not her ;-)
But don't worry, I'm pretty sure Alpha and Mom will keep jumping to answer my every whim. 'Cause I'm a very lucky dog.
Worthy of royalty -- indeed.

So here's the deal. I'm almost totally better now, since the vet has increased my dosage of medicine.
My fur, er hair, is coming in beautifully. I don't seem to be shivering as much. My hoppers are working great.
But there is one remaining problem: I want to drink lots and lots of water.
So my parents give me little saucers of water whenever I ask for it. Even in the middle of the night. 2-3 times.
And then I usually ask to go outside to pee. Needless to say, it makes for a restless night for everyone.
But hey, that's why I'm called "HM Frito". Do you know what 'HM' stands for?
Some think it stands for "His Majesty". But Alpha figures it just stands for "high maintenance". Either way, I'm special ;-)

Look who's got the big smile today -- it's Alli!
And that's probably because she's just so darned happy to be taking me on a walk.
Way to go, Hawaii girl. I hope you don't freeze too much ;-)
Well, at least it's not really-really cold right now.
And as you can see -- not a white Christmas for us.
Hey, ya know what? I'm totally OK with that ;-)

Even though the 'rents are keeping the German house much warmer than usual, I still need to keep myself toasty.
And what better way than to actually burrow into my Minky Cave.
Even better than my Minky Sandwich.
Now if someone can just keep the photographer away, life will be perfect ;-)

It was a tough Xmas morning, but someone had to do it.
Early wake-up, presents, waffle breakfast, and some Johnny Mathis in the background.
Looks like some folks had to crash (before noon mindya).
But not Alpha, nope. Always with the flash photography. Jeez
And lucky for you all.
Otherwise you might have missed this cutie pie snoozin' close-up.
But now, your day is all set. You, too, can rest now ;-)

Ho Ho Ho!
We got up early (since Alli is still on Hawaii time), and celebrated.
Aka -- "opened presents" ;-)
And while there were some nice presents under the Xmas tree ...
... everyone knows just who is the best present of all ... c'est moi!
Merry Christmas everybody!

Well, it looks like it won't be a white Christmas over here.
We had 4" of snow a few days ago, but now it is all gone.
And we're left with some muddy trails as a result.
Fortunately, Mom and I are here to brighten up your day.
You are SO lucky ;-)

Well, will you lookee who has arrived! It's my girl, Alli!
And after she and I took a long nap together on the sofa, it's time for some loungin'.
I lead a really rough life, don't I?
But hey -- it's my girl -- and anything goes for us.
I'm happy, happy, happy to see Alli, Alli, Alli.

I'm visiting the Vet, so I get a little bit nervous.
So what does Alpha do?
Well, of course, he takes pictures.
Thanks for all the comforting Alpha.
But at least you all are the lucky ones, since you get to see another Frito close-up!

What were you thinking?
I'm well ahead of you right after the gun goes off.
And I'm even further ahead, as we run down the Böblingen school running track.
And no surprise here.
I'm ahead of you at the finish line as well.
'Cause your a slow poke.
At least compared with moi (aka Speedy Gonzoles)
But the question is, do you think Alpha is more like Slow Poke Rodriguez or Sylvero Gato?

Well, that awesome vacation had to come to a close at some point.
So we're headed home, or at least back to the hotel
So that wraps it up for one more of our Alpine hiking adventures in Switzerland.
I hope you liked all of the scenery.
Mom and Alpha say next year they might try the Italian alps.
That is, if they haven't gone bankrupt by then (hee, hee).
Would probably make things cheaper, anyway ;-)
Switzerland is really pricey these days.

So there it is.
The Aletsch Glacier. It's really huge, but this is only a part of it. In fact, it's the largest glacier in the Alps.
And as you can perhaps tell, it's been receding for a while.
We didn't walk all the way to the end, for that would have been many more miles.
Boy, that sure is a beautiful trail.
I can't think of a prettier place to hike.
And what a beautiful Mom too.
And such an adventurer.
And as for Alpha ... well he's just a little strange ;-)

Man, this is a long hike.
Are we going anywhere in particular?
I mean, what's at the end of this trail (and how much further is it)?
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
A glacial pond and I got to get cooled off again.
This time straight for the grass -- who needs a towel.
So is there anything else cool up here?
Holy mackeral, there's a herd of cows up here.
And they seem to be a little territorial.
They are chasing Mom back down the trail.
Way to go Mom, thanks for creating a diversion for us!
We owe you one (hee, hee).
