Shhh! Ginger's sleeping on her Christmas presant

In case you were wondering if there was anything under the tree for Ginger, you're not alone.

She was wondering too.

Now if Ginger was a person she wouldn't want socks or sweaters.  She wouldn't want movie tickets or bath salts; I think Ginger would be all up into restaurant gift cards.  Despite her small size she's an eater; or would be until she exploded if given an opportunity.  

Besides her muffins (dog beds) the only thing Ginger cares about is of the edible persuasion so we found her a giant holiday dog bone.  Oddly, you were supposed to light a(n actual) candle.  I'm glad we did not.

We set it before her, unlit.

013

She grabbed it and bolted.

014

She walked and walked and walked all over the house hauling that huge bone. 

015

Until she decided she had no idea what to do with it and would defer the decision until later. 

016

She proceeded to do what she always does with things she wants to deal with later; bury it. Although burying a thing that size..

017

So no one in the Universe *cough* knows where it is and that  turned out to be quite a production requiring a lot of pillows.

018

Making it invisible took forever. But she was pretty focused.  These are a few of the many pictures I took of her burying the giant bone with invisible dirt.

I guess if you cover your treasures with thirty-seven pillows and the dog bed Lin made you and then go to sleep on it well, yeah.  Maybe your secret is safe.

Call me strange but I was wondering about Ginger the other day. She hadn't made any guest appearances lately so......

I understand her quandary - that thing is almost the same size as her! I would sleep on it too!

What a happy holiday pup! Happy New Year!

Okay, my YEAR is made! I'm glad that Ginger still likes her pillow that I made for her. :) And I don't see any bone anywhere.

We used to have a dog that would do that--bury every treat he got. Problem came in because we had a gravel driveway and we'd find all these little pyramids all over with his treats buried....and his nose bloodied and raw from all that work. Poor thing.

Thats an awesome gift. I can totally see why she had to hide it. lol Weird that they had a real candle to light for a dog bone though.
