DECEMBER 1st! Yipee!

In light of our recent conversation at the Petsjubilee Forum about Lucy and Linus, I thought it might be nice to let the Peanuts characters say a few of their own words about Christmas.

Since Etsy is bursting with holiday goodies, I’ve included a handful of appropriately themed artwork for you to enjoy!

24 Days until Christmas!

“I know nobody likes me. Why do we have to have a holiday season to emphasize it?”
–Charlie Brown about not receiving any Christmas cards

“Get hot water! Get some disinfectant! Get some iodine!”
–Lucy about being licked by Snoopy

“My own dog—gone commercial. I can’t stand it.”
–Charlie Brown, dismayed about Snoopy entering the “Lights and Display” contest

“Gee, do they still make wooden Christmas trees?”

“Are you going to let all this beauty go to waste?”
–Lucy explaining why she should be the Christmas Queen in the play

"I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards, and decorating trees and all that, but I’m still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed.”
–Charlie Brown

“He never got his picture on bubble gum cards, did he?”
–Lucy explaining to Schroeder why Beethoven isn’t so great.

“Charlie Brown, you’re the only person I know who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem.”

Twas The Night Before Christmas Sasha's Version Part 2

Twas The Night Before Christmas Sasha's Version Part 2
(Click on the pictures to see how you can get one of your very own.)

When out on the lawn there arose such a noise
I sprang from my bed to see was it the squeaky toys.

Away to the door, I zoomed like a flash,
Around the corner to hide my Bobo stash.

The moon shone bright on the new-fallen snow,
Which hid all my yard squeakies far bellow.

When what did my bulging eyes should sees,

But a small sled, and eight miniature doxies.

Cause a little red driver was breaking no laws,

I knew in a sec that it must be Santa Paws.
More rapid than snakey mice his doxies they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

Holiday Safety

For most of us, the holidays are a time of warmth, caring, sharing, family and friends and of course the true spirit of Christmas. However not everyone feels that way. Some look upon the holidays as ways to take advantage, scam or even harm someone.

The following are several links regarding personal safety, your home, your pet, etc.


This one from Money Magazine:

Hidden dangers for our animals:

Do NOT give out your address and/or phone number in a store with a bunch of people around that you do not know.

Please note that this provided as general information. If you feel you need for information, please contact your local police department.

Wishing everyone a very happy holiday season.

Since it's Thanksgiving, I thought these tips might be useful this week :)
-Feed her first: If your dog or cat is really full, she just won’t be as inspired to beg for more.

-Don’t give in to guilt: No matter how she manipulates you with those Oliver Twist eyes, remind yourself that she is already well-fed and doesn’t need people food.

-Make her leave for leftovers: If you decide to slip her a snack, do it away from the table.

-Say it with spray: To discourage brazen behavior like stealing food or being too pushy, use the plastic bottle you use to spray plants and hit whatever part of your pet is handy.

-Isolate the problem: When your cat or dog is driving you crazy, tell her “No!” and calmly put her in the other room and shut the door. Eventually she learns that if she doesn’t beg, she doesn’t get sent away.

-Try a sticky situation: If your pet’s begging includes jumping up on the kitchen counter, try putting strips of double sticky tape in strategic spots. Pets hate the sensation of getting a little stuck.

Give in -- just a little: Some people love feeding their pet at the table. To compromise, try slipping her something healthy, like lettuce. If she doesn’t like it, you’ve done your part, and if she does like it, your not loading her down with fattening food.

*These tips are home remedies only and should not ever be used as a substitute for any treatment that may have been prescribed by your veterinarian. If your pet has a medical problem, we urge you to seek competent medical care.

Thanksgiving Quotes

Some for fun, others for thought…mixed with some fine Etsy art!


What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?

- Erma Bombeck

There are a lot of New York City Thanksgiving traditions. For example, a lot of New Yorkers don't buy the frozen Thanksgiving turkey. They prefer to buy the bird live and then push it in front of a subway train. - David Letterman

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. - Erma Bombeck

This Thanksgiving is gonna be a special one. My mom says I don't have to sit at the card table. - Jim Samuels

My mother is such a lousy cook that Thanksgiving at her house is a time of sorrow.
- Rita Rudner

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day. - Irv Kupcinet

*It took me three weeks to stuff the turkey. I stuffed it through the beak.
- Phyllis Diller

You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out. - Jay Leno

Thank God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues, which the idle will never know.
- Basil Carpenter

Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all. - William Faulkner

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. - William Arthur Ward

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!
