No, not snowy…  it’s been flip-flopping from bitter cold to unseasonably warm here.  We’re talking Snowy.  You know, the cute white terrier in TinTin.

Oh – pardon me – happy Thorsday to you!  And happy Hanukkah to Jack (blogless) and our other Jewish friends.  Personally, we’re interested in celebrating the winter solstice with tree hugging, but you’ll have to go to Mama’s blog for that and for a peek at our Christmas card photo bloopers.

Did you know TinTin is an internationally beloved comic?  We didn’t either.  Mama says we can’t go to the theater to see the movie, but perhaps she will.  How’s that fair?!

Anyway, Mama got all obsessed with this Snowy character yesterday.   Some of you might not know that the Jack Russell Terror before me was almost completely white, so she’s rather drawn to white terriers.  Then, there’s our friend Cory, a white Westie who is plenty spirited too… so I hear.

Good thing there’s this internet thing.  Mama Googled, and in an instant, we learned that Snowy was inspired by a white fox terrier.  You can read more about that here.  I’m counting on her buying the DVD when it comes out, so we’ll get to see Snowy eventually…

Since this is almost assuredly our only post before Christmas, we wish you a very merry Christmas!  Here’s a doctored version of the photo Mama used on both of our cards this year.

    We didn’t know about Snowy or TinTin. We do like your card, but we liked the one with Sissy looking over her shoulder, too. We have some where one of us is looking somewhere different from the others and Mom says it natural. We’re never all on the same page. Merry Christmas to two of our favorite pups.

    Mom is hoping to get Dad to see that movie, but she isn’t too optimistic. Very nice card – happy holidays to you too.

    LOL The Knight looks a bit perturbed with having to pose. Mine is the same way. Either he looks grumpy or he makes an insanely good face. There’s a reason I don’t bother with family pictures. lol

    I don’t know anything about Snowy or TinTin. I love the family picture! It’s great 🙂
