Hello! Christmas is fast approaching, like only 20 days away. That is pure madness! Stores are pretty much beyond hectic every single day now and the weather is truly getting frightful. Today’s advent calendar post features a silly Boston terrier dressed as an elf! So, don’t think about all the holiday shopping you still need to get done or how the days are still getting shorter. Just curl up with a eggnog latte (as I am currently enjoying) and look at just how much this poor Boston actually puts up with! Every time I dress him up, wrap lights around him or even just try to take a photo he just “bites the bullet” and lets me because he loves to be able to share his overload of cuteness with his fans.
On a side note, I feel like these eyes are screaming ” How many more of these do I have to pose for?” The answer is 20! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
Happy Wednesday December 4th! According to the song on the 4th day of Christmas you got 4 calling birds but I thought a Boston in a moose sweater was a little cuter!
We are getting really excited for our Christmas in Texas and we still need more stuff to do on our road trip down there. Check out the post, Christmas in the Southwest , to see where we are going to be and make sure to send in recommendations for where you want to see Basil visit!
Its December 3rd and here in this house we have most all of our holiday shopping done, so that means its wrapping time! Basil was such a good sport during this photo shoot. After, we rewarded him with plenty of treats. He was such a good boy I almost forgot he got into the cat food last night! oO
I was planing on only posting a few photos but so many came out great, I thought I would share them all! Enjoy!
FYI, these bows are not meant to stick on dogs! If you want to take your own photos like these make sure to have a happy human helper as well as a patient dog. Treats will help too!
On the 2nd day of December Basil gave to thee… The perfect Christmas tree!
On a side note to todays Basil’s Travels advent calendar post, both of these adorable photos were taken at Little Switzerland Frasier Firs in Little Switzerland, NC. In the mountains of North Carolina we found a friendly family tree farm with hundreds of beautiful Frasier firs. It was absolutely perfect and Basil had an amazing time. Trees are reasonably priced and the land & view was worth the trip. If you’re in NC and have yet to pick out your Christmas tree please consider Little Switzerland Frasier Firs for all your tree needs! For those of you on the west coast, let me recommend Keith & Scott tree farm in North Bend, WA. When we are on the west coast this is were we always cut down our tree. They are great, have a lot of different kinds of trees, and are dog & family friendly. Hope everyone is having a get start to their holiday season and make sure to check back here everyday for more BT advent calendar photos!
Today is the first day of December so we are kicking off the very first Basil’s Travels advent calendar. Everyday you will be treated with a super cute Christmas themed Basil photo. You’re welcome! Happy Holidays!
On December 13 we are headed out on a road trip to Texas. My sister, brother in law and their 4 kidlets are currently living outside San Antonio so this family is going to join them for a not-so white Texas Christmas.
We’ll be on the road from Charlotte, NC to San Antonio, TX and passing through Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. We would love to make a few stops along the way and need recommendations from you. Let me know where you want to see Basil go in the comments below. I’ll be posting from the road so you can see what kind of fun we get into.
Also, keep voting for what you want Basil to wear for his meeting with Santa. Multiple votes are encouraged!
