Happy Holidays and a merry Christmas!! Blogmas day 25!

“All I want for Christmas is…” Blogmas Day 2!

 This is Basil’s present face. He notices there is yet to be any gifts under the Xmas tree and wants to make sure we all got his list.
Today I’ll share with you Basil’s Christmas list. He slipped this very list to me just the other day. Can you say needy? Geez!

What Sir Basil Boston- Pants of Fancy-ville wants for Christmas

  1. All the sticks. (10 inches in length or shorter preferred)
  2. A years worth of Puppuccino from Starbucks
  3. New boots. For hiking. I hike now.
  4. A new daily meal between lunch and dinner.
  5. A subscription to Loot Pet. Loot Crate’s new upcoming monthly box for dogs.
  6. Season tickets to see the Seattle Seahawks. Well, better make that a suite because I have delicate ears and the sound at The Clink is really loud.
  7. Treats!

What do you think? Is this a good list? Has Basil been a good dog this year? What does your dog get for the holidays? Let me know!

Basil loves Santa!

Santa Photo 2014The 2nd year of getting to see Santa Max at the Carolina Place mall and Basil did great! I even love the silly side eye he seems to be giving everyone in this photo!

Make sure to be following us on Instagram for even more photos I don’t post on the blog.

Christmas Day is here! December 24th-25th!

Hello all! Hope everyone is having a great Christmas and got everything they wanted from Santa. Basil was very blessed and got a few bones, a Good Day Dog collar subscription, and a Seattle Seahawks themed bow tie. We are having a great day with more family and now its time to just sit back and relax. 

So, have another glass of eggnog enjoy the last couple of hours of Christmas 2013.

Basil meets Santa!

Last night was pet photos with Santa at the local mall. We got dressed up and fought the wind, rain and traffic so we could have our first family photo with jolly one himself.

Basil loves places like malls and really any shop that allows dogs, so he was beyond excited. Not only did he get to see Santa but he also got to say “hello” to other dogs and a few adorable babies while in line. Once it was our turn Basil pulled me to Santa, he was ready to go. We adjusted our hair and Basil’s brand new Chilly Dog sweater and took a seat. After that is was just a few squeaks of a dog toy and clicks of the camera and we were done.

All the photos came out great and the one below was the chosen one! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and if you are in the Carolina’s and still need your own photo with Santa make sure to check out Santa Max at the Carolina Place mall. Also, makes sure to head over to his Facebook and like him there as well! 

Happy 15th day until Christmas!

Travel well, Nap well, Live well!

Let it snow, Let it snow! This Boston wants snow!

Its December 6th and we just got Basil’s new Chilly Dog sweater in the mail. Its absolutely perfect and fits him like a dream. It has a cute little hood that keeps his puppy dog ears warm. Now all we need is a little bit of snow!

Currently in the Carolinas we have been experiencing some serious warm temps with the high being 75 degrees today! (Seriously?!) Basil and I are just hoping for some cooler days so he can show the world how cute he is in his new sweater. For now he will just get to look adorable in the house and on Monday when he gets to meet Santa. Check back everyday for your daily BT advent calendar picture and on Tuesday to find out how it went with Santa!
