Christmas is coming! As you can tell by the picture, Sparky is getting into the spirit of things. The bathtub is one of her favorite playgrounds, and that's where she takes many of her toys. Yesterday she raided the box where I keep bows and ribbons and carted off two of the bows to the bathtub, where she sounded like a herd of elephants as she played. It's hard to tell in the above picture, but Sparky has just tossed the green bow and I snapped the picture as it flew through the air.
A RED MOHAWK
The next two pictures show Sparky wearing a red bow that makes it look like she's sporting a mohawk. She was Not Happy when I stuck the bow on her head, as evidenced by the severe frown in the second picture. (Look at her downturned mouth!)
The next two pictures show Sparky carrying the green bow in her mouth and leaping up to snag a bit of curling ribbon that I dangled enticingly above her head. In the second picture, I caught her in mid-leap. All her feet are off the ground. It took her 2 seconds to shred that ribbon! I can hardly wait until she discovers the presents under the Christmas tree--all of them wrapped in ribbons and bows!
