Siberian Santa Claus Comes To Town

The boys of The Herd have discovered the Siberian Santa Claus has come to town in her red and white suit and she knows who’s been bad or good.

Let me check that list of naughty and nice.
Let me check that list of naughty and nice.

Yes, our jolly old elf is deciding who deserves treats and who doesn’t, much to the consternation of the brothers who didn’t realize that she was watching so closely. But she has quite the list of transgressions and is carefully scoring everyone on the good/bad scale.

Let me decide who deserves presents.
Let me decide who deserves presents.

We hope that your Santa has rewarded you and that you and your family have the Merriest Christmas. We will be relaxing and enjoy a quiet day around the house—though we will break out into the periodic wooing of Christmas Carols.

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas beautiful Cheoh Santa! I hope the boys get at least a stocking stuffers. Thank you for another year of funny, and sometimes sad stories. We love the triumphs, and share in the bad times that have come this past year. I hope Christmas brought you all happiness, joy and togetherness. May memories sustain you, thoughts of the future light your way. Soft wood from my pack, Bolt, Siniy and Radar

    What a beautiful Cheoah smile in front of the tree. Something tells me she likes being Santa. Go easy on the boys, Cheoah, you were once young too. 🙂

    Merry Christmas to all of you!

    You know what I like best is the dog hair on the floor in the pictures. I thought I was the only one with the dog hair on the floor all the time (we have hardwood floors too with safe foam tiles on top because dogs don’t like slidding on wood floors) and it shows up so much more than carpet. We have german shepherds who never seem to stop shedding either. I figure if someone doesn’t like the hair, then they should not be visiting. Michigan without snow wishes you a very Dogmas Christmas.
