No snow in Windsor this week - just lots of rain!
So much for a white Christmas!
But hey, at least he won't need booties!

Harried New Yorkers hurrying down W 57th St last Friday were stopped dead in their tracks by the sight of two Yorkshire terriers high fiving each other in the window of a landmark store.
Even more unbelievable - the two cute Yorkies were taking pet trick requests from followers on Twitter who were watching online from all over – even Egypt and Japan.
This Friday and Saturday, Dec, 11th and 12th, Schmitty and Pudge will once again be taking pet trick requests on Twitter in the store window of Lee’s Art Shop in Manhattan to benefit pets in need. Some of the popular requests also include their show stopping “Ring the Bell” trick, hide & seek, play dead, roll over, and speak. Passers-by and online followers alike even enjoy watching them sleep - which they do a lot. Schmitty & Pudge are becoming America’s real live virtual pets.
Besides taking donations, Schmitty’s Healthy Do’s & Don’ts 2010 calendar along Schmitty’s signature New Yorkie products sold at Lee’s Art Shop and online at www.schmittysays.com are giving a portion of the proceeds to Bobbi & The Strays - a local no-kill animal shelter. Lee’s Art Shop is matching the funds raised during the “New Yorkie In The Window” event!

the true meaning of the season, it’s up to the Buddies to remind him that Christmas is not about what you get; it’s about what you give. Unleash a stocking full of Christmas cheer for you and your family with this fun-filled film, featuring never-before-seen bonus materials. It’s sure to be a holiday classic for years to come!
ANYONE who loves dogs, will love this movie! 2 young children watched the movie with me, and they adored it! It's a kids movie, for sure. And lacks elements for adults. However - be warned - they show someone pulling the beard off Santa - and they talk about how Santa is not real - and is JUST A MAN. So if your child believes in Santa - this movie may not be a good choice just yet.
This is an honest review - by law we must state that we recieved a free copy of the dvd from DogTime Media in compensation for posting a review of "Santa Buddies."
