How was your Christmas? Mine? Been busy. Expanding my belly. And my brain box. Devising a Festive End of Year Game for you to play. Thoughtful eh? It's a SPOT THE DIFFERENCE GAME. Know it? When two photos look the same. BUT. There's a small difference in the second photo from the first one. Phew. Got it? (Mango. Pal. No need for you to tax your relentlessly huge head. Get Dexter to do it) Play bowing to you everybloggie. Here goes.

QUESTION 1 . Easy Peasy one to start. I'll help. Spot the difference between

me hanging up my Christmas stocking for Santa, Martha and Bailey

and this photo of me opening my Christmas stocking the next morning. See??? Teehee!!! Thanks a squillion Martha and Bailey. But. Didn't I bark to put Pupcake the right way up?

Question 2 Now. Spot the difference between this . . .

and this . . .

Would you blogging believe it? After all my effort. Wasn't allowed either.

Question 3 Spot the difference between this photo . . .

and this . . .

Hmmm. Tricksy. Cos our eyebrows and beardie are 'xcatly the same. Crumbs. Don't think do you . . .I could be a Santa Clause clone?

Question 4 This one's a brain drainer. Spot the difference between this . .

and these . . .

Did you put your pies on it? HAAAA!!! A trick question. The answer of course. NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL. Both are Mince Pies !!!!

Question 5 Last one. Spot the difference. This Wishbone from the Turkey . . .

and this . . .

WHAT THE HECK???? Who put that photo there??? Silly blogger. NO similarity between those two pictures. None. WHAT SO EVER.

Okey dokey. That's it. Game over. 2009 nearly too. But one last photo. From me to you. Wishing you a wig wagging good one. Truly. May all your hopes and dreams come true. Happy New Year to you and yours everybloggie.

Eric, that blur of a wig wagging tail in your last picture filled us with a happy boost that should get us through the last day of 2009, the night of celebration (wherever we are - we haven't quite decided) and the next few days till our people get home. You are a picture of enthusiasm. And anticipation. And pure expectation. What a great way to usher in the New Year.

We're happy to be a (foster-related) extension of your family. Makes us feel special, it does. Here's hopin' you have a wonderful New Year's Eve and an amazing 20-10.

Please deliver our love to Miss Enid and Sweetpea (you were so honorable to apologize to them) and all the rest of the wheelies; to Otis (has he found his chill pill? - he might need it for the evening); and, most of all, to your people. They are pretty special, they are. Yep. It's true.

Happy New Year!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh my brain is dry after staring at these pictures. Ah the Turkey wishbone does look like you derrier, hehe!
May it be the start to a pawsome new year.
Love ya lots!

Martha and Bailey said...

That was very hard for us Eric! First of all we must apologise for putting Toffee in head first!
In actual fact we are going to blame Martha for that mistake - it was probably one sweet sherry too many!
We hope you and your family have the best New Year.
"Lang may yer lum reek!"
Thanks for the laughs in 2009 - not to mention the spins in the zoomer.
We look forward to 2010!
love and kisses

Wiggy Waggles back at ya for a Yappy New Year.


Joe Stains said...

woah, that is quite the wishbone. lol

Happy New Year!!!

Toffee said...

tee hee - Joe Stains said "bone" - tee hee.

Thanks so much for rescuing me from the stocking - I was getting a little itchy from the wool and a little itchy to see my cutie (mince) pie boy!
(did you know they do not have mincemeat nor butter tarts in the US? Mom says that is okay with her b/c she doesn't like raisins but I still find it a bit odd)

opening up a bottle of to share some for a toast?

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Loved all the pics. Even your wishbone butt is cute. teehee.

Happy New Year Dear Eric!!

Jake of Florida said...

We play that game all the time in the newspaper so we were prepared and of course, I, Jake the professor, in the fullness of my (almost)eight years spotted the differences right away. Smart is smart, right???

My doofus brother had a slightly harder time -- but did figure out the essence of the game: to share more giggles and love and friendship as the clock ticks down to a brand new decade.

We love you Eric, and thank you for all the wonderful new kinds of belly-shaking terrier insights you find for us.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Bobby said...

You can nearly counter surf, a little more effort and you would be there helping yourself.
I could just spot the difference in those photos, except the last two, I think one could be your face but which one.
All the best for 2010.

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Happy New Year Eric. We hope it is a very good year for you.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Mango said...

That was a most challenging game for the Mango. Of course question 4 was totally cheating as it was the exact same photo twice. As for question 5, I do see some similarities, mate.


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Mom felt like she was at the eye dokhtor!

Which was khlearer A or B?

Happy 2010 to my TERROR pal!

I hope woo have a foxy new year!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hmm...Scruffy is still stuck on number one...I think his brain has some damage or somethin'...all that flatus he emits has done somethin' to it....

I want to pawsonally wish you and Miss Enid and the other Wheelies a most wonderful New Year. Perhaps this will be the year for Wheelie takeover??? Just teasin' ya Eric!!

We wanna thank ya for givin' us the giggles from the first day you've been bloggin'...

A toast to Friendship, dear pals!

Lacie and the other dogs raise their glasses!!

Happy New Year!!!!!!!

Laciecakes, Scruffy and Stanny

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Eric
Well that's just the ticket for us dogs who like an intellectual challenge. I think that between us, Gail and I managed to work it all out!
But now my old brain is a bit tired (nothing to do with the single malt, of course...)
Cheers, H.

the 4 Bs said...

hey Eric, that was a fun game! we don't know about that wishbone picture though. that one was tricky. hee hee! we had to stare at the pie. now we're drooling. darnit.


Petey said...

Ah Bestie, A very grand Dogmaney to you and yours! That last photo might just be the BEST ONE EVER. Paws down. The rest of us adorable terriers don't stand a chance at MangoMinster this year if that's your entry.

Having a swell time in the sand. Pop on over, woncha?

Your pal,


Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

Great post Eric. Your butt could be confused with a wishbone though... Mom says her gram used to make mince meat pies. she wonders if its the same thing. beef, raisins, some kind of alcohol, and some orange and lemon tasting stuff and some spices, and probably some other stuff too.?
Anyway,have a Happy New Year
your pal, Morgan

Sophie Brador said...

That was a blast! Thanks for the giggles Eric.
