At 3:03PM yesterday afternoon, we officially welcomed winter to Cascadia. But the shortest day of the year was a busy one for the Cascadian Nomads canines. We started the day with our third and final Santa visit of this Christmas season. As it turns out, the third time was truly the charm because this was the first time since his first Christmas that Wilhelm did not scream the whole time he was with Santa. It was a Christmas miracle; the little doxie didn't make a peep. I guess "moments before zero hour, it did not pay to take chances." At long last, I have a Santa photo of Wilhelm with his mouth closed.
Even thought there was mischief that has caused the dogs to be forever feared by snowmen everywhere, do Wilhelm, Brychwyn and Huxley belong on Santa's naughty or nice list?
