Harley says, "Ho Ho Ho! Happy Holidays, Everyone!"

  Hi!  I'm Harley!

Usually my mom is tying up the laptop doing stuff.  But she's off doing other stuff tonight, so I thought I'd take my turn and wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season.

and to share a few of my favorite things that you might enjoy also.

Like - 

Evie Anderson's Corgi Art - which you can buy at her Etsy shop.

My mom buys some of Evie's notecards, and refrigerator magnets (LOTS of refrigerator magnets), and totes, and boxes and stuff at her Evie's  Cafe Press shop.  Stuff like this:

We think Evie and her Corgis, Chloe & Gwenevere,  are very, very cool.

And, you know what?!  We love "The Boss!"   Do you??!  Especially when he sings this song about Santa Claus.  Mom & Dad dance around the sunroom when they play this song on the stereo.  (don't tell them I told, okay?).

And what Corgi on God's green earth didn't just adore Tasha Tudor.  This is one of my favorite paintings she did.  I'm going to miss her.  lots.   I never got the chance to meet her, but I always enjoyed looking at her books while my mom would read them to me.  Do you know that she wrote books about Corgieville?!  She did!  AND, she had a house named Corgi Cottage.  How 'bout that?  I wish I had gotten to meet Ms. Tudor and all her corgis.  sigh.

And snow  - - -   I do love snow !

I hope you all are surrounded by joy and love this holiday season.

Your friend,

What a wonderful post! I didn't know there was a corgi store on Etsy...thanks for the link! These pictures made me smile. Chloe sends her love to Harley!

Oh are such a sweet little thing. Smudge said that she really wants to play with you. Maybe take a romp in the snow. Happy Holidays to you and your folks!

Thanks, everyone! I like this blogging stuff! No wonder Mom is here all the time!

Evelyn, thank you - I hope I do too! and I also hope you do.

Elizabeth, please give Chloe a kiss for me. She's a beauty and I love her. She will fall in love with all the stuff at Evie's Etsy shop (and don't forget her Cafe Press shop too!).

Hi Jill! Mom's gonna buy me a bow tie! Or at least, that's what she says. She's having some problems finding one in town, so I think we're looking on-line now. I want to make a playdate with Smudge - let's do it soon, 'kay?? I love to play in the snow!!

Thank you le0pard13 (i love your picture, but I'm a little scared of big cats and their claws!).

Merry Christmas, Harley! You and the Barley's are one lucky family to have found each other. I love snow and "The Boss", too.

Harley Doodle, may your Christmas be very merry! Have fun in the snow, I do!!! My mom is typing this, her name is Bobbie, she loves me lots. That photo is her, not me by the way. Happy Holiday time to you and yours!

Hi, Harley. Mom and I loved your post. She's a fan of the Boss, and I like snow (duh, what dog wouldn't), so we each found something in it just for us. Happy holidays! Woof woof woof!
Love and wags,
