Jeez Louise, it’s been hard to keep the cat in the bag this whole past day (mostly because I LOVE to
eat chase cats, but also because I HATE keeping secrets)! We got our Secret Santa gift in the mail on Wednesday, but mama wouldn’t let me write about it until today. Sheesh!
What’s that? You wonder what Secret Santa we’re talking about? Well. I will tell you. Last year we were invited to participate in a “Pittie Posse Secret Santa” with some other dog bloggers who also have dogs that look like handsome devil me and my silly Doodlebug of a brother. There were only a few bloggers playing last year, but this year has grown — there are TEN dogger bloggers playing this year!
So yesterday you saw me and my ‘Bug sniffing our package all over, trying to figure out what was inside. You must be dying of curiosity just like we were! Here’s our big reveal:
Our Secret Santa was Emily from Our Waldo Bungie. Lucky us, because she is also the creative mastermind behind Tiennot Knits – those adorable custom dog sweaters you’ve seen floating around the interwebs!
I already got to dogmodel those gorgeous sweaters with my former foster sisters Stevie Wonder and Little Zee, so this time the stakes were raised even further — handknit bowties! Don’t we look so dapper in them?
Just look how the colors and knits bring out my grumpy expression and Doodlebug’s dopey one:
These bowties are the real deal. The ‘Bug and I put them on, and even when I got silly and wore mine on my head like a present bow, we felt like total hipsters. Check out this craftsmanship.
They even smell delightful!
I do believe we will be wearing these dapper duds to Christmas dinner this year!
And as though that were not enough, Miss Emily got me another present because I’m her favorite internet celebrity. Check out this beautiful soft pillow! At first I was confused because I thought Miss Emily was calling me an old soul (who, grumpy ol’ me??), but then I realized: it is the pillow that has an old soul! I don’t know what that means, exactly, but it sure is squooshy and comfy to nap with!
