[25dec2009: Merry Christmas}

Darwin's first Christmas and it was great!  She had a blast opening her presents (and some of ours).  She would have been happy with wrapped cardboard boxes actually.  It was a lot of fun and she had a very full day.  Cuddling on the couch with dad is a perfect way for her to end her exciting day (so spoiled).  Pictures to come later... I'm feeling too lazy to download them. 
Here's a video Jason uploaded of Dar opening one of her presents:

We were trying to keep things clean and throw away wrapping as we opened, but at the end we thought it'd be funny to take all the paper out and let Darwin have a chance at complete chaos.

Needless to say, she loved it.  
Tomorrow she get's dropped off for boarding at Daynakin Great Danes.  They are local great dane breeders up north and though it's  a trek to drop her off, I felt more comfortable knowing she would not be in a kennel and with people knowledgeable about the breed.  
We'll be on vacation so we'll see you in the new year!
Merry Christmas to you all and have a happy new year!!!


  1. Be safe and have a great vacation!

    Darwin looks like she is very very happy!

  2. We can definitely personally recommend Daynakin Great Danes because that's Bess' breeder!! Darwin will be in the BEST of hands!!

  3. You got paper for Christmas? What fun!


  4. Not bad present opening for your very first Christmas! Paper is fun too. Twice I went back to the trash and pulled the paper out! I think Momma had accidentally thrown it out.
    Sounds like a pretty good babysitter you are going to! I hope you have fun and your parents hurry home. Oh Momma says they should have a nice trip too before they hurry home!
    See you next year!

  9. You are a PRO present opener Darwin! How cool that the boarding place sent a report card home and a treat! Sounds like a cool place!
