Merry Christmas!

To all of our friends out there in Siber- (er, cyber-) space, we wish you the Merriest of Christmases.  May you get your fair share of turkey and ham, and the best chew toys as presents.

We take you back to Queen Natasha the Evil’s first Merry Christmas in 2003 to show you that, even as a puppy, she was always in that Christmas spirit:

Santa who?
Tree branch
Seriously, it fell off the tree.

    Hello Thundering Herd, do you remember that christmas season every member of the Herd made its wish for Santa?, I always laugh when dear Kiska asked for smarter brother (Qannik)

    Talk about way back!! I still have my tree with color codes. Mariah always tried to grab the branches and run with them. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2001 so my tree is getting up there!! Evil Sibes are the best..

    That 2nd picture of the branch from the tree brings back memories-the color at the tip showing where it goes. WHAT FUN! Another Christmas will soon be here and hopefully some happy memories are made and no eating of nasty things off the trees-and or presents!

      Oh, yes, we’d get the colors wrong and the tree wouldn’t be shaped right. Believe it or not, we still have one of those in the house this year.
