Pawmas Morning

Mommy wants me to make sure all the hoomans know she calls it Christmas day, since that is the day baby Jesus was born. But for all the doggies to understand, I will refer to it as PAWMAS day.
When we got to Grammi's house, there was a tree in the house, but it didnt have any smell's like the one in our own lair. There were lots of colorful packages under it too, but I was a good girl and stayed away. Grammi's was worried my tail would hurt the things hanging on the tree, but NOTHING ever came off.
On Pawmas morning, daddy and me went into Grammi's lair, while mommy kept barking, i mean sleeping. I knew there was something for me under the tree, so I went and sat down calmly and waited. But no one came to check on me. So I found my gift on my own and pulled it out and started to play with it.
By time mommy came in, everyone was baffled where the toy came from. But Grammi's knew right away. She told them I had gotten it out of my stocking on my own, because I am a smart doggie. I didnt touch any other gift, just mine.

Daddy said I was a real good girl, so he helped me with the rest of my stocking. I could smell right away what was in there.

Daddy let me help him get my treat out. Santa brought me some really good yummies.

Santa also got me a toy, that mommy said is for Princess Doggies.

While mommy was trying to open her gifts, I kept bringing more to her to help me open. Mommy was very impressed that I knew which gifts were mine and let the rest alone. This gift was a really big yummy treat bone.


I got so many toy's. I heard mommy tell someone that I got more gifts than her and daddy. Grammi and Grampi said I was on the "nice" list, so Santa brought me lots of stuff. I am sure glad Santa Paws found us at Grammi's lair.

All the unwrapping and playing with my toys was exhausting. I didnt have anymore energy left to unwrap my last gift. I needed to nap. What a fun day!! BARK! Sasha the Princess!

We just got back from our trip to Grammy and Grampi's. Mommy, daddy, Grammy and Grampi all said I was the best doggie ever. They were so proud of how well behaved I was. The Princess was in full rain.

When we first got there, Grammi gave me a present early. This little snow man. It was really little for a big doggie, so mommy was a bit worried. But I was real gentle with it. I nibbled it a bit, trying to find the squeeky.

Then carried it around for a few days. Mommy was very impressed by how gentle I was with it. She said she wished I was like that with other furries.
Right now I am really tired. It was hard work being an angel. I will paw more later.
BARK! Sasha the Princess!

OK, Im merry.... When does the eat and drink part begin?

Mommy told me we are going on another road trip, this time to her mommy's in AZ. She said they live in "pets cot", sounds like a good place for doggies. We have gone there before and I got to sleep in the big lair in wheels, with mommy and daddy. Daddy said he is going to do some work while we are there, so we will be gone longer than last time, but I will have plenty of time to sleep and meditate. Mommy said she may sneak off to visit my cousins, the maincoons. Sheez, I dont see what is so exciting about 2 balls of huge fluff, unless you get to taste them. BARK! Sasha the Princess!

How can I ever resist a face like this?

I came home to find this pillow in the middle of the living room. It is a mystery how it got out of one of her beds. Neither one of her beds are messed up. So I left it out and went about my business. This is what I walked into when I came back into the room...

What a SWEET Princess!

Well, son day came and mommy said it was time to head home. We made another stop along the big water bowl, and while daddy was sniffing around, mommy took me for a last walk in the funny dirt. She loved looking at my paw prints. Then daddy found what he was sniffing for. "What is it daddy?"
He said it is something to put around the big water bowl in our territory, so we member this road trip. BARK! I will remember the smells!

We loaded up and started moving. This time it was a long long move. I was excited at first.
Then we kept moving and moving and moving and moving... "aren't we there yet?"

We finally got home after dark. I was so tired. Too much excitement for such an old lady like me. So here I am the day after we got home:
And here I am the day after the day after we got home:
Pretty much all week, this is how I have looked. I love my territory!
BARK! Sasha the Princess
Note from mommy: Sasha was such a good girl on the trip. Although I noticed her back legs getting weaker as she had to lay longer during the ride. The hardest/funniest part of the trip? Well, two stories- The first night in Monterey, she was pacing late at night. Guessing she had to go potty, I didnt want to irriate sleepy DH, so I tried to quietly sneak out the front door with her to let her potty. Well, they only had planter boxes, too high for her to climb up on her own. At this point, DH came to the door and gave me his coat to wear (as he stayed warm behind the door) since I was only in my skimpy nighty. She finally took the first step up, and I tried unsuccesfully to lift her behind up. At this point a dog in the next room barked, and Sasha got distracted trying to figure out where the other dog was. So DH called (wispered) me back into the room. Then he tossed on his pants, and came back out with me, and ended up having to lift her front end, and then her back end, and she instantly squated. So here we are at 2AM wispering "Good girl, Good girl"...LOL
2nd funny... we left her in the back of the 4-runner with her bowl of food (peanut butter hidden at bottom as an enticement) so we could run into Chili's for a bite to eat. When we came out, she was not only in the front passenger seat (bad girl!), she was STUCK. Her front legs on the floor, her back legs on the seat and her head resting on the dash. She couldnt turn or move. Poor girl. Thank goodness we had eaten FAST! She hadnt even touched her food. It was so funny, but so sad at the same time. We had to open opposite door and lift her behind so she could turn and climb across other seat to jump out of truck and stretch.
Oh the joys of a Dane!
Note from Sasha: "I AM SO EMBARRASSED!"

Road Trip- Part 3

After snuggling with mommy and daddy on the masters bed, mommy took me out for a walkie. She said that her and daddy stayed at the same place last year, but since they didnt go for walkies, they did not realize how close they were to the oshen. So it was a good thing I came along to show her all the outdoor wonders. This spot was a few minutes from our safe place. Mommy said it was bootiful to look at in the morning.

So we walked along the big water bowl. It made very loud noises and I got a little scared.

Mommy found this nice walk down to the water bowl. I was as eager as her to head down to the water. But just before we got to the bottom, she changed her mind, and went up some steps.

Good thing, because before we knew it, we would have been hit with all this water. Mommy was pretty scared that she had backed up just in time before this happened. There was no warning and it came real fast. I dont think I know how to swim to save mommy either.

I kept looking for the little furries we have in trees in our territory. Mommy kept trying to tell me there werent furries where we were, but I just knew I would be able to find one.

The rest of the day, mommy and daddy drove around a lot. We got out and walked some. There were lots of other doggies, that I got a little upset about. Then mommy and daddy drove to several places finding somewhere we could all eat together. We found a spot, but the ground was cold, so I just stood and kept an eye out for danger.

I was pretty tuckered when we got back to our safe place. I slept all night, unlike our first night. I think I was too tired to hear anything. Barkarooo.... nothing like a good sleep in front of a fire! BARK! Sasha the Princess

ROAD TRIP- Continued

BARK! We were back on the road again. It was a long long drive. I got pretty tired trying to watch it all. Mommy had daddy pull over a couple times so I could get some sniffies in. But the biggest surprise was when we got to where we were going. Mommy exlaimed loudly after daddy shut the door. "Sasha is a special guest!" See what they left for me? I was too busy sniffing the perimeter to make sure everything was ok. So mommy said I could eat later. I knew I was going to like this other lair to sleep at. Mommy said it is called the Vik door in.

Then we all jumped into the machine again and went for a short ride. They left me to sleep in the machine for a little bit alone, then came and got me and we walked around. Lots of people wanted to say hi to me, but each time, mommy would run into a store, so I had to keep an eye on her to make sure she was safe. Mommy actually gave some stranger the flashy to flash at us. It was pretty cold out there.
But the BEST treat of all, was when mommy said I could get up on the pack leaders bed. Oh, it felt so good. I snuggled up between mommy and daddy and made all kinds of noises to let them know how happy I was. This is a fun trip!

BARK! Sasha the Princess!
