Denali (Athabaskan for "the great one")is the original name of Mount McKinley in Alaska, and the highest peak in North America. Also the name of a really cute, blue-eyed and practically all-white Border Collie who happens to be deaf.
1. I graduated from another obedience class and proved how super smart I am, yet again.
Mom says it took the first two weeks or so for me to stop staring at all the other dogs and actually pay any attention to her, but then I realized I was there to play games and work with Mom, not the other dogs. Apparently, if you do your job good, then the instructor gives you a certificate and a Kong toy! And now we can sign up for the next level of obedience.
Oh, my doG! This has to be the best holiday ever. Mom said that someone named Santa was coming to give me presents, so I waited and waited for him....
But, alas, he must have brought the presents while I was asleep.
He knew just what I wanted though: new frisbee, tug toys, treats, bones. And of course, it was good seeing all my human family. I showed Uncle Matt and (soon to be) Aunt Bekki how good my wrestling, I mean snuggling, skills are.
...and last but not least....
3. Not one, but TWO snow storms!
We got snow this week (well, not necessarily the same week, but in a 7 day period anyways) not once, but twice! Once in Maine right before we left and then again while we were in Connecticut visting Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Maddie.
Anyways, here are some pics of me and Oreo playing in the snow in Maine:
Oreo is Mom's Aunt Candy's dog and lives down the street from us, so we play all the time. She loves to roll in the snow and play chase with me.
And these are pics of me trying to run in the snow from the blizzard:
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and is enjoying what snow they have as much as I am!
