Eat, Papa, Eat!

Mrs. Claus utters these famous words in one my of my favorite holiday shows, because who ever heard of a skinny Santa!! one wants to see a skinny Shane!
So after 5 weeks of nothing more than regular high quality food, a warm home, exercise and lots of brushing ...I think we can see definite improvement!!!
I took this photo the first few days he was with us
And this was today
 5 weeks ago..
 just a few days ago
 I am proud of our accomplishment and amazed at what a little food can do!! 

Now the title can also refer to the incredibly gluttonous time of year we find ourselves in right now.  Thanksgiving was a few weeks ago.  We left Shane in the capable hands of the Parks and we took the other four.  Shane hasn't quite mastered housebreaking enough to be trusted elsewhere. 
So we entertained our nieces and nephew by conducting a coloring contest.  Someone was taking this contest a little toooo seriously.
 But after a day of playing, cooking and eating, everyone was a little tuckered out..Cali is a good snuggle dog
 After that trip to Charlotte, NC, we came home and got our house ready for the next holiday!
 I was excited to get the blinky antlers that Shane so wonderfully and happily modeled for you previously in this blog.  So I asked the Diva to dutifully model them as well..I do so much for her.
 So I got that for about 3 seconds and then this happened...she is such a misfit.
 And since Cali does NOT need to eat more, I rescued the antlers for use on another day.  Have no fear..she will wear them again!
I don't have a macro lens but I was playing/bothering a bee I liked this shot..not excellent but neat  nonetheless!
 I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!!

Yes, I think the food has done Shane good. Food and some love.
House is beautiful, as is Cali the Reindeer Girl.
Happy Holidays!

The food has definitely agreed with Shane! He's looking great!

Cali and the antlers is one cute set of shots! I have a feeling it would be a similar set up here if we tried that with Kuster. lol

That bee shot is pretty darned cool!

Shane is definitely putting on weight and blowing his old coat. Looking much better. Cali put a smackdown on those antlers.

Funny pics of Cali. Great comparison shots of Shane. He does look much better. I'm going to keep digging and find his story. It must be a little further down. I've been so bad about visiting blogs. So hard to sit still with Maddie so busy... and of course she gives me so much I want to blog about. :-)
