Christmas Helpers

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  We've been really busy helping Mom with indoor stuff lately and thought we'd show you just how hard we've been working!

Part of our Christmas things are stored in the way, WAY downstairs area - Dad is the one who goes down there to get stuff.  The rest of it is stored upstairs in one of the guest rooms.  Mom goes up there, then carries it to one level or the other - up and down, up and down, for lots of trips.  In order to help her, Ammy, Zim and I strategically stationed ourselves along her route.  Here's a shot looking from the guest room across the cat-walk and to the stairs:

That's Zimmie curled up into a cinnamon bun, then me, then... can you see Ammy down there on the landing?  Woo.  Let's look at our layout from the other side, coming up the stairs.  Here's Ams...

...then me...

...then my kid brother:

Pretty helpful, aren't we?  I'm sure Mom thought so, too.  Every time she stepped over us, she said, "What would I do without you?" or "No, no, don't get up!"  (We didn't.)  Stormy was napping on the bed the whole time; I don't get why Mom smothered her in smoochies when we were done and told her "Thank you!"  She was in the bedroom the whole time, tucked out of the way - not along Mom's path!  Can you figure that one out?!?

Anywoo, the redheads left to go do other things; Amber wanted to check the weather, and Zim wanted to go through the cool Christmas cards we've gotten from some of our friends.

Mom had a couple more things to carry down from the guest room, so I went in to see if I could help.  While in there, I saw St. Nicolas!

St. Nick and me

I always thought he was bigger than this.  Ha woooo!  I think Mom appreciated my humor.  In case she didn't, I decided to strike this pose for her once we got back down the the kitchen:

Ho ho ho!

How can you look at that and not get in the Christmas spirit!??

I hope all of you are being as helpful as we are! 


  1. Wow, you are all incredibly busy with your Christmas helpfulness. Somehow, we all get to help outside when they are moving things inside. We can't figure that one out.

  2. You guys are such good helpers! You also do a good job at imitating an obstacle course!

    Hugs, Kodak

  3. You are so adorable and I missed seeing your beautiful faces. I love the ho ho ho photo. I am back and stopped by to wish you Happy Holidays. It will take my mum forever to help me catch up....
    IT sure is cold here in KS, uh? I wish we could play together.

  4. It looks like woo are being of great help to your mom. I'm trying, but it isn't going so well. That was furry nice of woo, Dave, to pose with that silly thing on your snooter. The things we do to make our humans happy!

  5. We think that you are helping your mom travel safely by encouraging her to watch where she is stepping.

  6. Wow, you guys are so helpful! I like to help my dad in the kitchen. I'll help him catch anything that falls. :)


  7. You all seem to be about as helpful as we are! Sometimes we even help by following Mom every where she goes. If she falls down, we can break her fall. Somehow, she doesn't seem to appreciate our helpfulness!

    Merry Christmas!

    Yes, Kona is where the coffee comes from. My mom grew up picking coffee. She's really happy that she doesn't have to do that anymore. :)

  10. Way to go pups! You're very helpful. Obviously Stormy is alpha over your mom too because Stormy could just nap while you and your mom were hard at work!


  11. Such great helpers, especially the donut!!! Of course, we know woo had to help Mom find her way down and then back up - woo were just being her signposts, right?

    Woos, the OP Pack

  16. Dave,

    You sure do take some cute pictures. You guys work really hard over there, too. I had no idea that St. Nick was so tiny. I think that if I didn't know any better I just might eat him . .


  17. Hi AO4!
    It looks like you did a great job helping your mom with the decorations! I always thought St. Nick was bigger too! You guys have sure helped me get in the Christmas spirit!

  18. Woo were just looking out fur here -

    Siberian Speed Bumps are such a dogsend!


  19. Awww... I just LOVE that last picture! That has totally gotten me into the Christmas spirit!

  22. Y'all are better than following the yellow brick road. Those humans have a hard time seeing the truth sometimes.

    Great job one and all. And a big Ho Ho back at ya.

    Loving Life,
