Now on to the main story! Usually my mom is the only one running around preparing for company, but this time, it was my turn. That's right! I was expecting visitors at my house. The girls from Southern Fried Pugs talked about a road trip on their blog and when I found out they'd be passing near St. Louis, I had to make sure they stopped by. I was so excited when they accepted my invitation. And a bit nervous too. I know why mom gets a bit uptight, it's hard work making sure the house is in order. I had to make sure all the furniture was smelling just right, the pantry was stocked with yummy treats, and I had to pick out the best toys to lay out in case we wanted to play. A couple days before Christmas we got a call that they were on their way over! I had dad pass out snacks right away so we were all quite attentive.

Sisters Tallulah and Petunia were more feisty, I could tell, and to the complete and utter embarrassment of my mom and dad, I got a bit snippy with them. Then because I can't see very well, I tried to nip at poor Isabelle's tail as she passed. I was put in quarantine on mom's lap and the girls took advantage of my dad's open lap.
Then we had a surprise guest...Gampy! He wanted to meet the girls (and their momma, of course)! Isabelle made sure she was in prime butt scratchin' position,
while the sisters started getting sleepy from their long journey thus far and made themselves comfy on the couch.
Soon it was time to say goodnight since they had to hit the road early the next morning. What a fun time we had! It was so great to meet the girls and their nice mom. I hope to see them again and redeem my snippy behavior a bit. And I just wanted to say thanks again for all of the great gifts. I played with my skinny reindeer so much after you left.
I'm going to make sure that mom doesn't pack it up with the Xmas decorations because I love to play with it!
