One of the highlights of my blog this year was hosting the Great Yorkie Bark-Off and, especially, collaborating with two creative dog lovers, Alana of Dexter’s Ruff Life and Luciana of Gangs of New Yorkie.  We all worked hard and had a blast, but I know Luciana would agree that Alana was the talent behind the video — as evidenced by the fact that she has gotten more than a million (!) views of her mini-films, starring two adorable Yorkies, Dexter and his new-to-the-household little sister, Peppermint. Both are little trouble-makers — and bundles of fun.

Here are two Christmas-themed examples for your enjoyment.

Did I mention that Alana has a wonderfully warped sense of humor — and a willingness to put herself out there?

Alana has had kind of a tough year — her life through dog video is an open book, so I’m telling no tales (tails?) when I talk about her divorce. So here’s to a very happy Christmas, Alana, and a better next year. May Dexter and Peppermint continue to cheer you up when life is tough.

That’s my wish to the rest of you, too. May you have a wonderful seasonal celebration — or retreat — with the furred, feathered and/or bipedal family members that bring you joy. And to those who are going through a rough patch this season, remembering loved ones who have passed (yes, I’m thinking of you, Clare), hold the good times in your heart. Those who cared about you would not want you to be sad.

  1. Those three are a HOOT! Merry Christmas to all – and remember, the true Christmas season begins Christmas Eve and lasts twelve days :). Woohoo!

    1. You’re very welcome, Alana. Frankie says I don’t want no stinkin’ Yorkie kisses. He can be pretty bratty too!

  2. Yes I am having a hard time with Christmas this year due to losses both furry and bipedal. Thanks for changing the tears to giggles.

    1. I was also thinking of you and William and Brad, Rebecca. Glad this could raise your spirits, just a bit. Tomorrow — Godiva chocolate liqueur will help (along with the other libations and chocolate food item 😉

  3. Now that the sun is coming back to our side, we pagans can take a deep breath and look forward to spring. But it’s sure fun to get some cute videos to enjoy.

    I can’t imagine solstice videos would be nearly as much fun. And don’t even get me started on Maccabees routing Syrians from the Temple…

    I hope you and Frankie enjoy some quiet time as everyone stops rushing around for just a few minutes.

    1. Thank you, Pamela. Same to you and Mike and Honey! P.S. The problem with Chanukah videos would not the violence but the boredom. The holiday’s miracle is that lamp oil lasted for 8 days instead of one. Come to think of it, it’d be kind of like watching the Yule log…

      1. Speaking of the Maccabees, I was just watching the old Friends episode with the Holiday Armadillo on Christmas Eve (Ross tries to explain Hanukkah to his son, who was more excited about Santa Claus). I don’t really have anything to add, just wanted to reference the Holiday Armadillo and tell you that I hope you had a lovely holiday. 🙂

  4. Thank you from the bottom of my heart (as the Jose Feliciano song says) for remembering Archie in this post. And the VERY BEST to all your readers and their pals–a fine and tasteful crowd if ever there was one.
