Pee ess... Muzzer says Schmauss Songs, a DWB blogger tradition, will start on my gotcha day, December 5. Hanukkah songs as we discover them. We take requests, but we do recycle, because we have favorites!

Remember...The first "official" holiday is December 6th, for St. Nicholas day. All you doggies best have stockings, not just the itchy ones.

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi, Gussie...

I think all these Christmas Memes are gonna get my Mom in the Christmas Spirit, too...

I can't wait...

Abby xxxooo

omdog Dad says brussel sprouts smell like pee?? Dad is a sissy about food, Mom loves them. Speaking of pee, that is one thing I have NOT stained, the tree!!

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

Loved the meme. Mom loves brussel sprouts and we eat anything mom eats!
We can't wait for the songfest to begin!!!!

Princess Patches said...

Great job, Gussie! Our mom and dad love brussel sprouts, but we've never had them...mom says they will make us too gassy. We say...so what? We are looking forward to your songs too!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Patience-please said...

We are so looking forward to your christmas songs!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hmmm...so if you sautee brussel sprouts they don't stink? We need to get Mumsie busy on that...she loves them, and the house smells like a barn when she's done...

Yes...Asta and the stain award don't seem to belong in the same sentence do they...Mumsie caught her in the act or the large stain would have been blamed on Duffy who was three feet from her at the time...Lacie isn't speakin' to us and Asta is going to kill us, but she's away for Thanksgiving so we're safe for a while...

New York was fab, Gussie...so much night life...so much beer...so little time!

Barkin' at ya Man...Scruffy

We can't wait for the Schmauss songs (one of our fave things of the season), and LOVED your very honest answers to all of the questions. You are always so revealing, Gussie!

Goober love & smooches to all the women at Casa de Gussie,

Wow Gussie you've got Christmas spirit! My Mommy wants to make homemade eggnog this year! She found a great recipe that calls for rum & she just loves rum! But Daddy only lets her have it during the holidays so she puts it in whatever she can! BOL!
