Christmas Joys #15 - Merry Christmas from Coco and Malone!

Mr. Malone was very excited about a Christmas visit from Miss Coco (named after the elegant designer, Chanel).  Malone had a special bath and grooming session and Coco came in her seasonal coat and hat.  Unlike celebrity columnist Hedda Hopper, Coco doesn't care that much for hats and lost hers during the first few minutes of running through the house with Malone.  Except for a minor disagreement about a treat, the evening went swimmingly, and Miss Hopper would certainly have wanted to include this soiree in her newspaper column.

 I hope that you will continue to join me throughout the month of December as I post about some special decorations, traditions, collections and memories that bring the joy of the season to our house. Perhaps you will want to respond with your own story or comment about what brings happiness to your heart at Christmas. I would love to hear from you and look forward to sharing a bit of Christmas! Annie

How cute. It looks like they are sitting on the back of the couch in your 2nd pic. That is one of my chihuahua's favorite spots to hang out, especially if the sun is shining there.
