My first card

Pleeeeease, Mom, let me take the hoodie off...

I guess I am stuck with the e-collar for a few more days until my paws heal up. I've really been trying to be good, but they are so itchy and it's just too tempting to nibble on them. I even let my mom cut my nails yesterday, which I NEVER let her do. Aren't I good? Don't I deserve a break?

I did get a brief respite from the hood so I could read my first DWB holiday card! Thank you Comet and BLU! I am so excited to start receiving real cards in the mail - just for me!

(My dad is helping with some of the cards. He's not as quick as me and my mom, so I still have some cards waiting to go out...sorry guys!)

Comet and BLU sent a beautiful card complete with holiday shapes and glitter! Wow! They are talented artists, and two good-looking dogs, too!

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
His Most Serene Highness Lord Lenox the Encompassing of Goosnargh on the Carpet
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title
I finally went and figured out my own Peculiar Aristocratic Title. My mom thought it was especially appropriate. You can see some of that Goosnargh in the bottom left of the second picture. Time to get out the Kids'n'Pets.

Oh man sorry about the collar. That isn't good. This getting cards is exciting I think.

Liza said...

Love, Dory

Molly the Airedale said...

Bummer about the lampshade, Lenny! We're sending AireZen that it's removed super fast!

Lenox of Goosnargh. I like it, especially if Goosnargh has anything to do with goose poop. Sorry about that cone, but how it is for acoustics. Get your mom to play your favourite CD. It might sound awesome in there.


Jake of Florida said...

Hi Lenny,

Yeah, I know how nasty that cone can be -- but it will soon be gone and you'll appreciate being able to sniff stuff without bonking into everything!!

Your pal,

Just Harry

Cairo The Boxer said...

I hate that kind of collar! I got your card today in the mail! Thanks! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season :) You must be so tired from hand writing all the cards. See you soon :)

Agatha and Archie said...

Lenny would you like to borrow the round flat collar Archie used? it has army fatigue coloring and you be The Supreme Allied Commander like he was. We have a lot of goosnargh too!!hee hee Love A+A

Kirby said...

Hi Lenny,

Sorry you are back in the collar. I hated mine, you are such a trooper. I hope your paws feel better real fast. Don't you love getting your own Christmas cards? I bet I get more than my parents this year. He he he!!

Your pal,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Lenny
Sure you are not so happy with the head cone! Get well soon and you will get rid of it in no time!
Blue and Comet were very fast!
Have a good night

Joe Stains said...

we are so excited for the cards too! we are sorry you have to wear the collar :(

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Lenny,
Awww man... I have the same problem! I have an allergy that never seems to go away and it makes me want to bite/ lick my paws all the time. Medication did not seem to work..
My mom seem to think that mine is a behavioural problem more than anything else cos I don't lick/ bite when I am out for walkies.. =(
I hope your infection clears up soon!

Gus said...

Charlie said...

Oh Lenny, that hoody thing looks problematic. It'd always be knocking into things and just when you're about to get your teeth into something good... well, hope you get it off soon -- you deserve a break! Unless, of course like Sophie said, the acoustics are good...

Sarah said...

Hi Lanny! Nice to meet you. Thank you for the holiday card!

Roy & Gwen

Deanna said...

Hi Lenny! Nice to meet you! We got our first card today, too! It was yours!

Thanks a million!

A thousand symapthies on the cone, man.

the many Bs said...

Hi Lenny, we got a card from you too! it's so exciting. we love that cute picture of you with all of your stuffy friends. it makes us gigle.

we're so sorry about your stupid cone-head. we hope you can get it off soon and let your paws heal. are you allergic to your food? can't you go on a special allergy free diet? or raw? anything but vegetable-alien... that's okay for humans but not dogs. you need a bully stick!


Noah the Airedale said...

G'day Lenny,
Too bad about the Elizabethan collar matie.
Guess what we got today, a card from you!!!! Thanks ever so much. We love it.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

Comet said...

Hi Lenny -
So sorry to hear about the dreaded cone. We hate that thing!

Glad to hear that you received our card. To answer your question about BLU's name - it is in all capital letters because our girl is sick! She named BLU after bluetongue virus, which scientists abbreviate as BLU.
What was she thinking?
Comet and BLU (who is not a virus!)

Harry said...

Hello Lenny, awfully nice to meet you. Thank you for our ovely card. You are a very handsome boy!

Toodle pip,
Harry x

T-man Angel said...

Hi Lenny! Thanks for the's the first one I got :) I'm putting up all my cards on my wall, and I'll take a photo of them sometime soon.

I hope you get to ditch the collar soon. Those things are the pits!!


Ricky Pepper said...

Hi Lenny!
We got your card and it's so cute! Thanks so much. You look a lot like our buddy Axel (you can find his link on our page :)
Collar = not cool but glad you got a rest from it to read your card!

Stanley said...

SOrry about the lampshade/collar deal. Hopefully, that will be coming off very soon. I'm sending healing goober smooches for your paws!

Enjoy the cards. What a cool idea!

Hi Pal. I have never had to wear the lampshade, but both my sisters have. Too bad. I hope your paws get well soon. BTW, we tagged you on our website. Answer the questions when you get a chance.

Maybe when she's asleep I can sneak some treats!!!!!
