Before we get too far from the holidays, I wanted to share just a few more photos from Christmas Day. Blind Stella and Tanner weren’t the only ones trying to help themselves to boxes of goodies. We were surprised to find blind Bugsy had wandered into the living room, sniffed around, and quickly figured out that a particular care package was stuffed full of dog cookies of one gourmet variety after another.

Bugsy’s nose must have been going crazy with all the different yummy aromas coming from that box!
