Santa's Village

Well we have to drive to the North Pole for this holiday tradition. 
Not really, just twenty miles north of us.
Then we have to find the walking bridge to get us over the waterfalls.
Found It!
Usually we go at night when all the lights are on.
But since Lee's camera does not do nights we came right before dusk.
Yep it is Santa's Village and I, Sweet William The Scot, am here to talk to Santa Paws.
First I checked in with the Post Office to get his address.  They directed me on down the road.
Well here is Licorice Livery.  Yep I can smell this is where Santa Paws keeps his tiny reindeer.
The reindeer are out hope that means Santa Paws is not with them.
This sure looks like a nice home.  Wonder if Santa Paws lives here?
Looking in the door doesn't show anybody around.
O.K. I'm a Peeping Tom.  Look at all those nicely wrapped presents under the tree.  Somebody who lives here has been good and they didn't even lock their door.
O.K. where is everybody.  No one home here either.
I can see through the window and all the presents are still wrapped.
Ye Olde Cocoa Shoppe.
Darn it is getting cold and we need something warm to drink.
Finally someone working.  I'll go around to the front door.  Maybe the elf can tell me where Santa Paws is.

Well no one is answering the door!
I'm going to the other side to look in.
Well it looks like the elfs are starting to take down the decorations and Christmas was just yesterday.
Didn't he ever hear of the twelve days of Christmas?
Well the Candy Cane Shop is the last place Santa Paws might be, maybe it is open.
Nope closed also.
Santa's village is working on a skeleton crew or migrant immigrant elfs from the South Pole.
I think the regulars all headed South for the winter.  Santa Paws is having himself a nice warm vacation.  Santa Paws is a Snowbird he is one who travels to warm climes for the winter.
Jeez I'm disappointed I didn't get to talk to Santa Paws.

Mt Adams Reindog Parade a Nati City Tradition

Well we have so many traditions in Nati City it is hard for me, Sweet William The Scot, to show you just one.
In past Decembers I have showed you
The Krohn Conservatory Christmas Display.
I have showed you
Scuba Santa at the Newport Aquarium.
I have showed you
I have showed you
myself riding on a horse drawn wagon in the annual Christmas Parade.
I have showed you
The Christmas train display at Union Terminal.
All of these are Nati City traditions.

Well in Nati we have another tradition it is the Reindog Parade that takes place in the community of Mt. Adams.
Yam Aunty that is where the beautiful church is and we could see the whole city when you visited us. Yep all us dogs get all dressed up and parade up and down the hills of this community.  It happens the first Saturday in December. We pack every parking space for miles.
This is a video of the 2011 parade.  We like this one because it has Christmas music.  But it is a time when we see old friends and make new ones.  It raises money for the SPCA.
You can catch the different years just go to YouTube and put in Mt. Adams Reindog Parade.
We are in some of the years videos.  The last year of Half Pence's life he could not make it from where I had to park up the steep steep hill.  I carried him but he walked in the parade, my little wonderful trooper.  I think we were almost last because the walk up the steep steep hill was so hard for me. The bestest Scot anyone could ever have.  Not a day goes by that I don't miss him so.
So watch and see all the wonderful dogs in their Christmas outfits that turn out for the Mt Adams Reindog Parade.

Gots To Hang My Ornament

I, Sweet William The Scot, gots to hang my ornament on my Christmas tree.
What happened?  Lee said we were downsizing but lets get real.  Downsizing, well I could lift my leg on the top of this Christmas tree.
Now talking about lifting my leg.  Well I got my Christmas present early.  Yep I got a pee pole.  I am eight years old now and finally Lee got me a pee pole because I finally stop peeing like a girl.
See my pee pole.
Every time I use it Lee opens the window and says William, yep that's my name, stop peeing on the new carriage lamp post.  I don't know what Lee is talking about because it is my pee pole.
Well we painted a Frosty pole out of the extra wood from what went in my pee pole.  Yep I helped I got white paint on a paw.  We decorated the porch so Santa can find my house ~ it is the one with the pee pole.
Well it is suppose to snow tomorrow and they just put down that beet juice stuff on our streets for the predicted one inch ~ JEEZ.
I got my sled out.
