For those of you participating in the DoT Dogs Ornament Swap, I have already emailed you your swap pals. If you have not received your swap pal please email me.
This was to be a secret swap and everyone has someone different this year, although I wasn't very clear on this and I apologise. So a semi secret swap is okay.
If you already know who you have or who has you, just sport a case of sudden amnesia when you package comes to you from your pal.
Here is a recap of some important swap rules:
This Swap will end on Dec. 29th
Rules: Make, Create or Purchase a special ornament for your swap pal dog or dogs family and include a favorite special treat for that dog(and their doggie brothers and sisters if you get a multi dog family, usually a bag/box of treats is plenty.)
Use your imagination and have fun.
Please don't forget to mail your package to your pal no later than Dec. 20th.
(because life happens and there are many detoured plans so if you are running late please email or your pal to let her know...and if you need help also don't hesitate to email me.)

Meet Thor who owns Marjie and her family:
Thor was born May 5, 2001. Weighing in under 3 pounds, he's now about 100 times that weight! Thor was one baby from 2 litters born days apart totalling 25 pups, so he certainly felt right at home in the household of 9 two-legged puppies which he joined at 7 weeks.
Thor's people include 6 human brothers and 3 human sisters. He's also been known to round up the odd cat who wanders through the yard, because all dogs know cats really just want to play with dogs. He also plays with the guinea pigs, although those critters are so small that they can confuse a guy.
Thor doesn't go upstairs, nor does he sit on the furniture, although he has been known to sit on some of his people on the furniture, upon occasion (just so Mom doesn't catch him!).
Thor's brothers sometimes bring him home dinosaur femurs, which have to be sawn in half so Thor can trot around with them.
He has a lobster, who recently had open heart and claw surgery.
But a guy with big teeth sometimes does damage he doesn't know about!
Thor also has a rope to play "Pull!" with (he has pulled apart the previous 3 ropes). Mostly, Thor likes to sit in the middle of his people, or romp in the yard with his boys.
For Thor's 7th birthday, he had applesauce cake with meringue topping. Hooray! Finally, a guy gets the recognition he deserves, and gets dessert!
Some people refer to English Mastiffs as "gentle giants", and in the case of ours, the title certainly fits!
Happy Dogs on Thursday!
Edit: For some reason beyond my comprehension Mr. Linky is having linking problems and some names (includinging mine) had to be reentered as they were lost in cyber space. So if you see you name moving around the link list that is why. I will try and keep an eye on it today.
