Sydney is now extremely jealous...  
...of the Nintendog on Mark's DS. :) Mark named his little Ninetendo Sheltie "Gracie" - which is Sydney's real (paper) name (well, it's really Graceannie... but we hate that!) Whenever Mark calls his little cyber Sheltie, Sydney gets upset and runs toward him. Whenever "Gracie" barks, Sydney starts to make little growling noises. Poor thing! If only there was some way we could let her know that no cyber dog could ever compare to her fuzziness! ;)

On a completely separate note, the goodies are starting to flow in at our work place. Tins of popcorn, cookies, chocolates, candies... Let the season's eating begin! :P Tomorrow one of our reps is treating us to a nice lunch in the back office from California Pizza Kitchen (YUM!). And if that wasn't enough, next week we'll be eating too much almost every day! :P On Tuesday, we're going to the bank wide Christmas party at Bishop Museum - and this year the food is being catered by Side Street Inn. :) On Wednesday, one of the wholesalers from one of the annuity companies is buying the back office Italian food for lunch from Assagios!! On Thursday, the branch that our office resides in is having their branch party and we're all invited - more eating!! And if that wasn't enough to make me gain 40 pounds, on Friday another rep is treating the back office to lunch. It's so nice of everyone to think of us during the holiday season, but OH MY!! the weight I'm going to gain!! :P I think I'm just going to start buying my clothes one size larger in anticipation. :P

In happy NYC trip news, I just purchased our tickets to see "Rabbit Hole!" in January! :D I have to admit that I'm much more of a musical person, but I do enjoy a straight play every once in while - especially one written by my favorite playwright (David Lindsay-Abaire)! I'm so excited about "Rabbit Hole!" :)

Hope you're all having a nice evening. I'm off to give the fuzzy dog some attention so she'll stop growling at "Gracie." ;) Big *HUGS*

Hahah! Smokey's ears pop up when Joe's Nintendog barks! He named his Nip-nip. I swear, Joe and Mark are so much alike. ;)

Haha! They are SO similar - it's almost scary!! :) What kind of dog is Nip-nip? "Gracie" looks a little like Sydney did when she was a puppy, but Sydney was much cuter, of course. :)

You know, I am not sure what kind of dog he chose. I will have to ask! :)

LOL how funny about Sydney being jealous. It's sad she doesn't understand that "Gracie" does not even begin to compare the fuzziness that is Sydney. :)

Wow that's a lot of eating. :D

It is pretty funny! She just runs to Mark when he calls "Gracie" - it must be the tone of his voice. :) I can't wait to see Gracie grow up - right now she does look a little like Sydney did when she was a puppy (of course Sydney was much cuter - and WAAAAAY fuzzier!) ;)

Too much food!! I need to stop eating!!

How funny and somewhat sad at the same time about Sydney. I'm sure she knows how much better she is though! :D All her fuzziness!!!

All that talk about food made me a little hungry. :P Have fun enjoying the holiday food! :)
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on December 9th, 2005 04:21 am (UTC)
Poor Sydney dog!! She's lost a little self esteem since "Gracie" entered Mark's life. She's worried that she'll lose her "princess" status in our house. ;)

The food is so good, and so thoughtful of everyone, but AHHHH the calories! :P

UGH... I'll be 500 pounds by the time the holidays are over, I just know it! :( Dieting will certainly have to be my New Year's resolution... if I want to fit into my clothes. :P

Dogs are so funny! We used to have this little miniature furry cat, and we sat it on the mantle...it made Sarah go CRAZY. It was this tiny little thing, and you could barely see it, but she would bark at it and growl at it all the time. :)

Enjoy all of the holiday food! :D It sounds delicious!

Hope you're having a great week.
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on December 9th, 2005 04:26 am (UTC)
That's SO cute and funny about Sarah and that miniature cat! :D I can see Sydney doing something similar. :)

It's SO sweet of everyone to send us food and bring us lunch, but AHHHH my clothes are not fitting anymore! :P So much for healthy eating! ;)
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: (dogs) jack and jillaudienceawaits on December 8th, 2005 03:55 pm (UTC)

Poor Sydney! I wish there was some way to let her know that she's still the princess of the house. ;)

Hahahaha, poor fuzzy dog! And a big hooray for your NY trip!
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on December 9th, 2005 04:28 am (UTC)
Poor Sydney, though it is amusing to watch her run to Mark when he calls Gracie. ;) And I can't WAIT for our NYC trip!! It's been way too long since I've been there!

Poor Sydney - but I also had to smile, all the same. :) And I'm sure, at heart she knows that she is the best dog you both have, she just needs to tell that Gracie. :)

Oh, so much eating - listening to you, I'm going to feel hungry again. I understand your thoughts in regard to gaining weight (here it's mostly the sweet things) but I hope you will have fun, too.

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.
Sheri: Sydney Dogshutterbug93 on December 9th, 2005 04:31 am (UTC)
Haha!! Sydney knows deep inside that she's still the princess of the house. ;) I'm sure she'd have no problems telling that to Gracie. ;)

The eating is so much fun and so delicious, but the weight gain is dreadful!! Next week there will be entirely too much food!! :P

Big *HUGS* Sabine!!

Hi there! Thanks for your comment! Aren't dogs the best? I do have a page for Sydney on Dogster here:


But, unfortunately I haven't started the "blog" feature of her page just yet. BTW, your icon of your dog is adorable!!
