    Ruby and Sydney

    Thank you all so very much for the information on Santa Claus. Between the postings from you (thank you so much) and the discussions with all our other Cavaliers on the Cavalier web site "Human Talk - The Cavalier Chat Room on Human Owners", we are getting hip on this dude called Santa. Also, by keeping our ears open, we've also heard Mom talking about this jolly old fat man, with a beard, wearing a red suit called Santa Claus. Apparently he comes down a chimney, (if you have one, if not he has other ways to get in), and then leaves us presents under the tree we decorated. Now normally, anyone coming into our house uninvited will hear about it from Sydney and I. But if this Santa guy is hauling down some doggie treats and chew toys, well let's just say we can make a bit of an exception, can't we Sydney. Reading some of your posts it appears we have to put together a list of presents we would like Santa to bring us and then mail it to Santa. Some other Cavaliers said it was too late to send a list to Santa now but we have a feeling that if Santa is half the person we have read about, we could have our list arrive on Christmas Eve and he would still answer all our wishes. But just to make sure we have all our bases covered, we are getting down to business. First of all we had to wait until Mom and Dad left. Once they were gone, Sydney got some paper and pens down and she started first. Before Sydney had gotten much past her name at the top of the list, Sydney thought she saw some headlights coming down the drive,



    And boy, did we scramble out of the kitchen and disappeared up the stairs as fast our little legs could carry us,




    We disappeared up the stairs and slipped back onto our pillows when suddenly Sydney remembered she had left her list on the kitchen table.











    Luckily it was a false alarm and it wasn't Mom and Dad. If they had come in and found her list on the table, we would have been busted for sure. Quickly getting back to work, Sydney completed her list first but only because she had a cup of coffee to keep her awake.



    And this is what Sydney is asking Santa for this year

    Endless Dreams of Running
    Basking in the Sun
    Unconditional Love
    Coming Home After a Trip
    Unexpected Treats

    And while you're at it Santa, Sydney also wants you to bring her

    Extra Large Box of Squirrels
    New Driving Gloves
    Lady and the Tramp DVD

    Once she finished her list, I started mine, but trying to figure out what I want Santa to bring me is really hard work. Before I knew it, I had accidentally dozed off. Guess I should have done like Sydney and had a cup of coffee too:




    A little bit of a nap must have helped, because when I woke up I figured out that this is what I want Santa to bring me on Christmas



    Lots and Lots of Wet Kisses
    Peaceful Afternoon Naps
    A Soft Chewy Squeak Toy
    A New Pillow And My Favorite Spot in Front of the Window
    Unexpected Treats
    Mom or Dad's Lap to Curl Up In and Nap

    And of course I could also use the following if its not too much trouble Santa:

    A New Laptop All My Own
    Any Book on Programming in C++ And Java
    A Vera Bradley Handbag like my Mommy's

    After finishing our list, we knew we had to mail it somewhere but no one knew the right address, so we are taking a guess and sending it to someplace called the North Pole. We're not exactly sure where that is, but we have total faith in the U.S. Postal Service.



    And mailed it during one of our late night runs to the doggie store for doggie treats.

    Looks like we have yet again come to the conclusion of another Ruby and Sydney adventure. Our only task left is to prepare for Santa's arrival. We understand it is a tradition for human children to leave Santa a plate of cookies and a glass of milk. In honor of that tradition, I practiced leaving Santa a plate of our own goodies, with hopes he would enjoy them while he is here, but of course Sydney just COULDN'T resist and had to go take some.



    I told her if she did something like that on Christmas Eve, Santa might not leave any presents for her. Sydney whined about how she liked treats and couldn't resist but promised she would behave on Christmas Eve.

    Well, better run. Mom and Dad are back from the store. Only a few days left until Christmas. We'll get back with another posting on Christmas Eve. Until then, so long everyone and make sure you have everything ready for Santa. We do.

    Ruby and Sydney - hope you both have a wonderful Christmas. I have a feeling you will get everything on your list...well...maybe not everything I'm sure your list will get to Santa as long as you posted it to the North Pole. Everyone knows that's where Santa lives and I'm sure the postman up there is very familiar with his house. I've so enjoyed your stories....have a nice restful Christmas and we're looking forward to your future tales!

    Ruby Here,

    Santa came to our house! Santa came to our house! Sydney and I must have been good this last year because we cleaned up. Of course, it was a bygone conclusion we would get something because, after all, aren't Cavaliers good all the time? But it's good to have Santa validate that fact. Sydney and I got lots and lots of squeaky toys, chewy sticks, bags and bags of treats, and a really cute ball with 10 different colored balls inside. That is it on the left: (Sydney is off the all the rest of my goodies but that's okay, I have my favorites)



    Sydney and I take turns taking all the little balls out of the big ball, squeaking them a few times, and then scampering off to hide them all around the house. Mom and Dad keep finding them upstairs, downstairs, on the stairs, etc. We also got a little extra credit when we put one under the cushion on the sofa and it made Mom jump and squeal when she sat on it. We also got a new house to replace our current residence in the kitchen. We like it there because its warm and we can keep an eye on Mom and Dad there best.





    Oh yes, I got Sydney the driving gloves she asked for and the large box of squirrels. There's a lot, I got a gross (144) with a good discount. She lets one out occasionally and chases it across the yard but it scampers up the closest tree and disappears. Everyone in the neighborhood keeps complaining that there seems to be more squirrels this year and we just smile and keep looking cute. Now we are ready for the New Years holiday and we understand from Mom that you humans make promises to yourselves for the New Year and call them resolutions. In the spirit of the holiday, Sydney and I have come up with some resolutions of our own which we would like to share with you now. What do you think?


    Ruby and Sydney's New Year's Resolutions

    I will not wake Mommy up by sticking my cold, wet nose on her bottom.
    I will not chew my Dad's toothbrush and not tell him.
    I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, since it seem to cause Mom to think I was bleeding.
    When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining outside.
    I will not drop soggy tennis balls in the underwear of someone who is sitting on the toilet.
    We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.
    I will not steal my Mom's underwear and dance all over the back yard with it.
    The sofa is not a face towel. Neither are Mom and Dad's laps.
    My head does not belong in the refrigerator.
    I will not play tug-o'-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
    I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.
    I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.
    The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.
    I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.
    I will not eat the cats' food, before or after they eat it.
    The computer's mouse is, unlike a real mouse, inedible.
    I will stop trying to find the few remaining clean pieces of carpet in the house when I am about to throw up.
    I will not throw up in the car.
    I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., when we go to the beach.
    "Kitty box crunchies" are not food.
    I will not eat any more socks and then re-deposit them in the backyard after processing.
    The diaper pail is not a cookie jar.
    If you can help us think of any more, let us know.


    As soon as the New Year's holiday is over, Sydney and I can start where we left off before the holiday's, with our last adventure in Washington D.C. We have lots of stories to tell and pictures to share. Don't worry, it won't be our last trip. In the New Year, Mom and Dad are taking us on lots of trips here in Virginia and we may even get to see Queen Elizabeth. She has promised to come to Virginia to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in 1607. We are also going to spend time in the Hamptons in New York, (Mom grew up there), Charleston, South Carolina, and maybe for our big vacation a trip to England, Scotland, or Ireland. More to come so try to keep up.

    Ruby here,

    90%? Uh, no. No one said anything about actually keeping them. We thought it was a good joke. I'd better go tell Sydney. I thought we could for sure keep one or two, but 90%. Not sure I like New Year's like I did Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    If you happen to see Wesley or Cody on one of your cavalier sites...be sure to let them know about the cat food one....The litter box is NOT a 24 hour all-you-can-eat buffet!!
    I love my Wesley, Cody, Zoey & Stewie
