Last weekend I went shopping, and one of my wishlist items was a stocking for Zoe, since this is her first Christmas with us. We've had the same stockings for years, and Roxie and Xander have their own stockings too. They aren't fancy. Just your standard, traditional red and white stockings, with our names at the top. My plan was to find a similar one for Zoe. That plan abruptly changed as I turned down the holiday decorations aisle at Target. If you've been following Dogs Rock, you're probably aware that I, and therefore all my dogs, have a love of all things animal print. They have leopard print collars, coats, and of course my shoes, but it doesn't stop there . . . we love zebra print, giraffe, and so on. As soon as I laid eyes on the leopard print stocking, I knew it was perfect for Zoe and her impeccable sense of style.
Zoe's stocking in no way matches any of our Christmas decor from years past, but suits her perfectly. She has added a lot of fun to our household over the past 9 months, and deserves a funky stocking that's all her own.
Since we're on the topic of holiday decor, I thought I'd share some of our favorite ornaments. I wouldn't say that I have a "theme" going, but I have gravitated toward snowmen decorations over the years.
|Newest one. Added this year.|
|Who could resist this smiling face?|
|Last year's addition.|
|Last, but not least.|
And yes, we do have dog ornaments too . . .
|This one was purchased because it reminded me a little but of Xander.|
|In memory of Mike's Lhasa Apso, Dudley. xo|
