Hi folks!

It’s December 23rd….and that means one thing….DUNCAN’S BIRTHDAY! Yep, the doodle turned 7 today and we celebrated the same way we do each year. I force him to wear his party hat and then I give him a toy and treats.

Good boy!

Good boy!

He knows the drill and stays still like a champ long enough for me to snap a pic or 100 two.


And after picture #97 we start to get this

Get this thing off!

Get this thing off!

Plus, he just went to the groomer so he looks and smells delicious for the holidays.

Well, I haven’t run a single mile this week. I am going to try and squeeze in a run tomorrow before I hit the road to visit my friend Susan for Christmas Eve.

And since this post is all about Duncan and nothing about running I’ll sign off by sharing my Christmas card…


Thank you all for reading my little blog. I’m going to get started on a post highlighting my top 10 favorite memories of 2015 and hopefully get that up before the new year.

Happy and Merry Everything!

What are your plans for the holidays? Do you celebrate Xmas? Did you Celebrate Chanukah? Anyone celebrate anything else?
