This year Momma and I went home for Santa Paws Day. It was a long trip. Not quite as long as it was to Arizona and back, but still eight hours. I had to sit in the car for eight hours like a good girl. We stopped about half way and I went for a walk. Momma gave me frenchy fries. And then we stopped about two hours later 'cuz Momma had to put gas in the car. Then I went for another walk. When we finally got here, I got to sleep inside. I've been sleeping inside at night but I have to stay in my kennel during the day because there are other doggies here. I just wanna play with them, but Momma says they would be mean to me. So we go for walks and I play ball in the back yard with Momma. Yesterday, I got to see a little baby like me. He was so little. And there were kitties there too. And today Santa Paws came! So far I have gotten 4 toys! A horsie, a hamburbur, a bear and a puppy. The horsie is in my house with me. I like the hamburbur, it squeaks! Though it doesn't taste like the hamburburs Momma gives me. Momma says there is more Santa Paws Presents for me later tonight. I can't wait. She even says there's one from Daddy. Momma went over to Daddy's the other night. She says I'll see him soon. I hope so. He throws the ball far. Maybe we'll get to go out and play ball when we get back home. Daddy likes to hit the ball and have me chase it. He hits it far away and I have to run to get it. I like going on vacation. Momma says we might take a vacation to the ocean in the summer. I don't know what the ocean is, but Momma says it's like a big swimming pool.
