Our Human got to Post Today

We were visiting Maggie and Mitch's and Lorenza's bloggie and they were posting the same game. And so, we thought it would be nice to answer the same Qs, but since this will be our first Christmas, yet, we will be giving the floor to manang...
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper, although gift bags come in handy sometimes for those last minute gifts.
2. Real tree or Artificial? We don't have a lot of pine trees here, so we go for artificial
3. When do you put up the tree? there won't be any tree today because Aki and Poopie are still too hyper to be left inside the house with it. *sigh*
4. Wreath on your door? land lady says no drilling in the house, so we don't have that, either. *sigh again*
5. Do you like eggnog? we don't have eggnor per se, but we have the "eggnog cookie" although I doubt that is what the authentic eggnog looks and tastes like.
6. Favourite Christmas gift received as a child? stuffed toys are the only things in my christmas list
7. Easiest person to buy for? Aki and my dogs (aside from myself, of course!)
8. Least easiest? My friends who have everything
9. Do you have a nativity scene? we had one, but it was so long ago.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? we'll do both so we can spread the cheer with as many doggies as possible.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? a shower gel. :(
12. Favourite Christmas Movie? The Town Santa Forgot and the Yogi's First Christmas.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Normally, October or November, but we'll just do it when we get to Bacolod this year, because we will be bringing Poopie along.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? err.. yes. It will just sit in a corner and gather dust, if I won't.
15. Open presents on Christmas eve or morning? Christmas morning, although some gifts arrive rather late, so I open it when I receive it..
16. Lights on the tree? Yes, if we had one. But there will be lights on the house.
17. Favourite Christmas song? Jose Mari Chan's Christmas carols, esp. Christmas in Our Hearts
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? stay home!! that is what Christmas is for- togetherness!
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? yes, but with much help.. hehe.
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? we had a star but an angel would be nice.
21. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas? ham and pitsi-pitsi with lots of melted cheese (this is a local kakanin or snack made with mushed cassava and normally sprinkled with grated cocount- although i prefer grated cheese, instead)

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Christmas rush and traffic. But what i feel bad about most is not being able to spend Christmas and New Year with Aki since Poopie and I will go home and visit my family and other dogs in Bacolod City *wails*
23. Favourite Tree ornament, theme or colour? I'd like to redo my high school Christmas tree project- a non-traditional, spiral wire tree wrapped with golden weaved abaca ribbon and lined with pine leaves and flowers.
24. Favourite for Christmas dinner? ham with lots of ham sauce.
25. Brussels Sprouts - love or hate them? haven't tried it yet, but I sure do love broccoli
26. Favourite accompaniment to the Christmas Pud? hmmm.. chocolate sauce?
27. Favourite Christmas Carol? Christmas in our Hearts
28. Your very Favourite Christmas Thing? Being able to spend time with my family (although, it
won't be really complete this year, because Aki will be in Cebu... buhuhuhuhuhuhhu) for almost 2 weeks
29. A Christmas wish!
Good health, Joy, Peace and Love between all people regardless of race, color, gender, religion and status in life. For every living being, be it humans, animals, insects to somehow feel the spirit of Christmas, take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily living and just bask at the blessing that is our life.

Personal wish: that Aki will be okay with his tito (i.e uncle) Emer and that the dogs in his temporary day care will be nice to him and that he will make new friends. That he won't get sick, get bitten or get into a fight with a dominant dog and he won't get lonely and he won't get scared of all the fireworks. That he won't miss us too much and won't feel that we have abandoned him. (We will be going home on the 20th and will be back by Jan. 4. I am bleeding as I write this but for now, bringing him to Bacolod with us for the Holidays is not only an big ordeal but it will also stressful for him considering the length of travel)
30. Tag a Seasonal Six!
I know some of the puppies have already been tagged, so we encourage anyone who wants to play to feel free and play along with us. This will be a very good opportunity for us to know you better through your Christmas Traditions.

We would like to make a special tag to: Aki's mommy Secretary and their dogs Moymoy and co.

Have a happy weekend every pup!

Well even though I am a grumpy old dog I like best for all mankind and animal kind to get along to gether.
If it was so then I would have been treated better, then I would not be a grumpy dog.
