Christmas!

Cinnamon got some nice things for Christmas, in her stocking she got a stuffingless penguin for her to play with, and a bag of doggie treats which are peanut butter flavored. Her 'big' present that we wrapped was a doggie snuggie, though unfortunately the largest size was too small, and she looked uncomfortable in it so we will take it back an get her something else. It was fun taking pictures though.

Happy Birthday Cinnamon! 15 Years old!!

We made her a doggie cake this year, it was a dog specific recipe so no sugar or anything crappy in it. It was made mostly of peanut butter and bananas. I tried it and it was a little bland... BUT she loved it. Look at her chow down!

Breakfast in Bed

Since her leg is still hurting pretty bad we've been putting her food on a plate and bringing it to her in her bed. First meal was on a paper plate, but now they're on our nice plates that we use, cause she deserves it.

The reason you see cheese and crumbs on the side of her bed is because when she eats she tends to take a bite off the plate and then move her head away from it to chew so sometimes little bits fall out of her mouth. And the reason you see cheese is because she loves it.

And everyone loves breakfast in bed.

Vet

Cinnamon's hind left leg has been hurting pretty bad lately, so we took her to the Vet today.
We had to leave her there for a couple hours to get xrays and blood work done, I know she was probably very scared and uncomfortable so when she got home we gave her one of her favorite treats: Frosty Paws, a brand of doggie ice cream.
She loves it, she just sits there and licks the cup empty. I hope it makes her feel a little better.

Under the Tree

For some reason, Cinnamon loves the Christmas tree, both last year and this year she has spent as much time near and under it as she could. Nearly knocking it over at times, which is funny.
Everyday there seems to be new ornaments on the ground that she knocked off the branches.

Shes very pretty sleeping under the tree.
And that green present that shes laying next to, its her present.
I bet she knows that.

Working

Often when I'm working, Cinnamon will make her way under my desk and have a nice sit. I'm fine with it, except for one time she sat back by that mess of cords and my monitors flickered off... So now I make her always sit closer to me facing out.
I don't know why she likes it down there, but she does.

Shiverin

The past two weeks have been very cold, in the 20s and one day as low as 13degrees!
Our house doesn't have the best heating because we have vaulted ceilings so the floor where Cinnamon usually is has been incredibly cold. So much so that she has been shiver-shaking.

Now we follow her around and wherever she lays down we put her snowflake blanket on her.
Sometimes when she gets up for a drink of water or something, the blanket will fall off of her, and when she goes back to wherever she was she pulls at her blanket trying to get it back on her... Its very cute. We help her of course, wouldn't want her to freeze!
