Duke vs the snowman

I hope you will all forgive me for the mess in here, my blog is deciding what it wants to wear for the holidays. So far it's not sure about this look so it may change several times.
Now on with today's post

I may have been busy in the kitchen over the weekend but Duke was busy with other things. He was reacquainting himself with some of the snow people who reside here in the winter
He seemed to be totally unimpressed by the happy snow couple who strolled by on their way to the steps.

I can't say that I really blame him. Yes they were polite, they smiled at him, but they were rather shy and didn't speak to him at all.
One particular little frosty however, belted out a happy little jingle for Duke and they seemed to hit it off quite nicely.

This resulted in some rough housing that you might even describe as wrestling.

So I bet you want to know who won this bout right?

Well the whole thing was declared a double knockout. No winner.

Duke has to learn how to duke-it-out with those snowguys... they could pile-up him, and you would never know?

Don't tell Duke he didn't win. He won't like that. How adorable. Well anything Duke does is adorable to me.

Have a terrific day. My very best to Duke. :)

I'm having a hard time keeping Lily away from the gingerbread house. She seems to think the candy might be for her. I wrapped a stuffed toy and almost had to put her outside,she wanted to mall it. Not sure what she would do with a singing snowman.One year one of my cats tried to eat all the artificial birds I had on my tree. She lives out in the stable now, good old Treetrimmer, she was a self-feeding wild one when she came to my home.You have a great elfin smile. Very nice header.

All I have to say is, that is one tough snowman :)
I tried decorating my site for the holidays, but there's very little I can do with free photo editing software...oh well.

Grace said...

Grace said...

Wow - I right clicked on the background and that brought up the whole picture - WOW!

Donna said...

ROFL!!!!!!

Erika said...

This looks like when my son "plays" with something musical.

DSS said...

Ha! Louis tries to "play" with the decoration at my house, but unfortunatley he usually wins :(

Duke is a wonderful host to the winter time visitors in your house!

Daisy said...

Your header graphic is cool! I think duke doesn't like the frosty personality of those snowmen. They gave him a cold reception!

Ann said...
