Yesterday was Mardi Gras – “Fat Tuesday” – the day before Ash Wednesday (and the start of Lent) when practicing Catholics, like my Mama have to fast. Mama has been stuffing herself with all kinds of good food, like donuts and hamburgers.
Since Mardi Gras is a holiday in my house, you know what that means . . . Mama made me dress up.
Then, she put me a silly basket and clipped a fake flower thingy in my hair. She thinks it was so cute, but I don’t really agree. What do you think?
I put up with this because I love you.
Do you remember Chanh, my Shih Tzu boyfriend from Nashville?
(Technically, he is my ex-boyfriend, since I am in love with Louie the Shih Tzu and Duncan the Westie. But Louie is my Twitter boyfriend. I am kind of a dog playa. I love all doggie boys. I just can’t help myself.)
Chanh is on “vacation” this week and staying with me. We are having lots of fun playing with each other. We enjoy playing tug-of-war and wrestling with one another.
Mama thinks it’s funny how she’ll throw a toy, and both of us will run after it in our Shih Tzu way. I’ll grab half of it, and Chanh will grab the other half. We trot towards Mama with the toy in both our mouths. She thinks it’s the cutest thing.
Hey, Gracie’s Mom… You do know I’m a boy, right? And purple is for girls!
Yeah, I’m totally not happy with this purple bow in my hair. Not cool… Not cool at all.
I guess these golden beads aren’t so bad, but still. I look ridiculous. Not manly at all!
This is so not what I want to be doing right now.
Hmph. Are you done yet? Take this bow off!
Sigh. I give up.
Mama wants to know whether you think our Mardi Gras costumes were cute, or just riduculous?
She didn’t have any Mardi Gras beads (except for the golden one that Chanh wore), so she dressed up as festively as she could. She laughed and thought it was the cutest thing.
I am just glad it’s over. I do not like having anything in my hair. But I put up with it, because Mama is the love of my life.
Hope you all had a great Mardi Gras!
