Some Of Our Christmas

This is just a small part of our Christmas.

First of all, did you notice my gay apparel? I have on my Santa dangling earrings. And this is Elvis. He is a chocolate cocker spaniel that Dr. Amber saved. He had Parvo and she was able to save him. He also has hip displeasure. We are fostering him until a transport can be arranged to send him to shelter in Florida that specializes in broke dogs. They have a vet who volunteers his time (for a minimal cost) to help out pets that can otherwise become a loving family member (which he is fast becoming here.)

This is Dr. Amber (her name is Amber and she is a doctor of veterinary medicine, thus, Dr. Amber – clever, huh) and her boyfriend, significant other, lover, pet handler or what ever, Bob. Seated is step-son, Steven and his wife, Laura.

This is Marni and her most favorite Christmas present. It’s a toy dog you attach to your leg and it humps and moans (and get faster and louder as it goes.) She took it home to Carl (who wasn’t able to come over) who I’m sure will trash it. After he takes it to work.

And this is a Keurig K-Cup – one coffee cup dispenser. You get a little cup and stick it in the top, press the button and out comes on cup of coffee. Marni gave it to Judy for her birthday (Dec 26) and we have loved it. It came with a variety pack and I have used most of the coffee. Judy is using the tea and hot chocolate. We ordered refills today.

Which reminds me! I don’t seriously ask for money from you guys, and I won’t now. But if you log onto Dr. Ambers web site ( you will see a place for donations. Don’t go there because of this. But if you happen to hear a little voice in your head telling you to go there, then it’s probably God telling you to go and donate fifty to seventy-five percent of your income to her non-profit organization. Or not!

What I am suggesting is the spot that says, “Give Back America. Org” If you are going to be shopping on-line anyway, click on this button and it will take you to many companies like Wal Mart, Home Depot, Amazon, Barns & Noble, etc. If you do this, Ambers group will receive a percent (I don’t know how much) of your purchase and it will not cost you any more. That way everyone wins. You have your purchase and you gave to a need organization that saves hundreds of animals each year. And it didn’t cost you one cent more. You must log in to her site first, but everything else is automatic and the same as usual when ordering. We will appreciate it, too.

Awww what a beautiful Cocker Spaniel! That would be a hard one to let go of.

Love the Santa earrings!

I'll check out Dr. Amber's site! I love Marni's new doggie. hehe But I really love that coffee pot!

Have a Happy New Year, Coffey!

Nice Christmas update. But I'm curious about that "one-cupper." Do you & Judy fight over who gets the first brew?

Coffeypot said...

Tookie, thank you.

E.Craig, no fight. It was her gift and she had hot-chocolate and then I had an Italian coffee.

Southern (in)Sanity said...

Great pictures.

How did I know that fancy coffee machine would attract e.Craig's attention?

I will check out Dr. Amber's site.

Pamela said...

I'm jealous of the ear rings.

Hey -- how did you get such good looking kids? hee hee.

a/k/a Nadine said...

How nice that you are fostering the chocolate dog. I am such a sucker for dogs, I could never been in close proximity to your Dr Amber and her good works. I'd end up with 80 dogs and my own episode of Animal Cops.

Coffeypot said...

Pamela, they came with the marriage. Three tax deductions extra that year. Marni is mine.

Nadine, send me your address and I'll have her send you a few.

I could never foster a dog. I would never want to give him back! I fall in love so easily.
Sounds like you had a great holiday. Love the earrings, btw.

Cant Hardly Wait said...

have a rockin new years, dude. i know you will with those sexy earrings.

GrizzBabe said...

Elvis is gorgeous!! I hope he finds a good home.

Cup said...

Hope you had a lovely Christmas.

BTW, I turn fifty in three months. I could use my own humping dog.

SuvvyGirl said...

Elvis is adorable and so are you as his priscilla. :) Those one cup coffee makers are wonderful. i can never drink a whole pot and I hate to bother with the whole measureing thing. :P I will definately keep an eye out from here on for the donate thing. If I ever have the means to do it I will open my own dog rescue thing. Or after mine are all gone be a foster parent for them. I love animals...probably more than people.
