I dunno what that means, but Mom said it. I want all of you to come with me because I have some special stuff to show you.
First, here's my brother and best friend, Harper.
Now, we start to get to the really cool stuff with lights. Mom has been decorating. This is the mantel:
Mom's mom painted this wood plate with the little houses and people. Mom says it's called folk art.
Mom thinks Mrs. Rita will like this cat that's an angel. I think that's ridicurous to think a cat could be an angel.
These are two little wood trees in the foyer. They are NOT for lifting our legs on.
This is what the window in the foyer looks like from outside:
Mom's mom painted this plate and Santa Claus, too. The plate is supposed to have cookies for Santa on it. Mom won't put out the cookies because she says they'd turn into cookies for dogs.
This wagon and basket are on top of the pie safe in the family room. Each one has a teddy bear in it.
And now come with me to the very best thing of all, THE KISSMAS TREE.
I don't know why it's called The Kissmas Tree. Maybe because Mom and Willy Dunne Wooters like to look at the lights and decorations and then they smooch and talk lovey-dovey lovey-dovey all the time. Then they show each other a good time. It's so gross. Bleah.
Don't tell Mom, but sometimes when she's tapping on the computer I sit with The Kissmas Tree and enjoy the lights. Then I find Mom and I give her a kiss. I learned what a kiss was the very first day I met Mom.
Mom says this cute fuzzy ornament came from Kianwi at simply she goes. It's one of my favorite ornaments because Kianwi's dog picked it out for Mom. It says PEACE.
I think Mom wants to keep it up because it gives her more excuses to kiss Willy Dunne Wooters.
I say Merry Kissmas!
Okay I love you bye-bye.

P.S. Mom says please visit Miss Nicki at Nicki Elson's Not-So-Deep Thoughts. Miss Nicki is so nice that she has put our rafflecopter on her blog and if you send a birthday card for my Grandma Margaret's 80th birthday, Miss Nicki will give you a story for FREE! Mom loves the way Miss Nicki writes. Send birthday cards for Margaret to
PO Box 61371

Mom will write another update tomorrow about how many cards we have and which ones we've received. Thanks for helping Mom give Grandma 80 cards for her 80th birthday!
Thanks, Franklin, for the Christmas tour of your home. It all looks lovely. Be sure to be a good dog and not bark at the reindeer when you hear them land on your roof.ReplyDelete
Mom says no landing on the roof because it might get damaged and we can't afford a new roof.Delete
You sure have been decking the halls (and everything else!) at your house. Looks very cheerful. I especially like the homemade stuff.ReplyDelete
I think Mom decked everything except the halls.Delete
Your house looks beautiful and you Mom has some wonderfully painted decorations! She's so talented! I would love to kiss you by the Kissmas tree as you are such a handsome pup :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mrs. Maggie. Mom showed me your picture. I would be glad to kiss you by the Kissmas Tree or anyplace else. ; )Delete
Franklin my man\dog.....I don't think 'mommy' would appreciate you 'spilling the beans' about her and Willie Dunne Wooters!! LALALALALALA....I can't hear you!! lolReplyDelete
Great decorations by the way Janie! I can tell they mean so much to you.
Mommy shouldn't be smooching all the time if she doesn't want people to know. Mom said to tell you that your comment made her laugh, and thank you for complimenting the decorations. Mom loves Kissmas.Delete
Your Christmas decoration are delightful! As are Franklin and Harper :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Wendy!Delete
Very lovely, Franklin. Your house looks like a cottage out of a magazine. I love cottages.ReplyDelete
Mom says she would rather have a cottage at the beach. In Jacksonville, this kind of house is called a bungled-oh.Delete
There's a feeling of Christmas.ReplyDelete
Mom's been singing lots of Kissmas songs. I love it when Mom sings.Delete
I love lots of lights at Christmas and you have them all over the house. Good that you know not to lift your leg on those floor trees. ;)ReplyDelete
Mom would not like it at all if we lifted our legs on those trees. They're not real trees, so it isn't too hard to remember.Delete
Hi Franklin - well you've kept us up to date with what's going in your neck of the woods .. it looks just so pretty and everyone is enjoying themselves .. happy Kissmas build up .. cheers HilaryReplyDelete
I think the house is pretty, too. Cheers Cheers Cheers! Okay I love you bye-bye.Delete
Is it weird that as I read this there was a phantom dog breath smell that I imagined? Also, what's the line between arts-and-crafts and folk art? That's not to diminish anything, that plate is really cool. I'm just legitimately curious.ReplyDelete
I'm a dog. I'm supposed to have dog breath. It smells good. You smell like a pickle, and that's not so good. Mom says the plate is arts-and-crafts in the style of folk art.ReplyDelete
Can you send some of that Christmas cheer my way...It's not here yet.ReplyDelete
i sure can, Mrs. Barb. I'm sending you a big slobbery kiss right now.Delete
I wish I had a kissmas tree maybe I would get kissed more, but all I have is a Christmas tree and it doesn't make anyone want to kiss me................so sad................ReplyDelete
I wish I could give you a big doggie kiss, Mrs. Jo-Anne.Delete
You're lucky you have Kissmas stuff in your house. I've got nothin'. Not even a wooden tree to not lift my leg on. But at least they finally brought my couch in from the garage. I've missed my couch. I hide under the pillows and pretend it's my doggie-fort. Mom says the couch stinks like dog funk. I don't know what that means but I think my couch is wonderful and it's the best Kissmas present ever except for the spaghetti she let me eat last night.
Love, Eddie the Schnauzer
At least it's dog funk and not dog spunk.Delete
Mom told me to say that.
Now I know why I kissed this...it was when I had the flu! So happy you put my ornament on your tree :). What a wonderfully decorated house. It looks so cozy and filled with holiday spirit!ReplyDelete
Ha ha, I think kissing was on my brain! I meant missed this!ReplyDelete
You have kissing on your brain because you saw photos of Harper and Franklin. Franklin is especially kissable. So is Willy Dunne Wooters.Delete
