Camille Didn't Get the Concept Of the Bird Ornaments On the Tree Until...

"Mimi" took her over to "see the brides on the tree", as "Auntie Nicole" asked her whether she did earlier. She kept looking out the window and barked at first when she thought that she saw birds, despite that "Auntie Nicole" kept telling her that they were "on the tree over there".

"Mimi" eventually had to take her over to the tree, and she looked over "Mimi"'s shoulder even then at first.

As for Reilly, she got that the "birdies" were "on the tree over there" when "Auntie Michelle" took her to it right away.

Of course, neither Reilly or Camille get that the "birdies" are ornaments, and "Momma/Auntie Nicole" wanted to take an ornament off the tree and show them "the birdie" to see how they'd react to it for that reason. "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi", though, misheard and thought that "Momma/Auntie Nicole" was being "sadistic" by tricking them about a "burglar" being around. "Mom-Mom", on the other hand, understood what she said and thought that she was being mean overall.

Update [12:45 AM EST on Monday, December 4th]: "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" finally got to show Reilly and Camille two of the ornaments to see how they'd react. Though Reilly actually saw both and Camille saw only one, their reactions to each were essentially the same: curiosity and desires to sniff-vestigate. Reilly also, however, licked her lips after she sniffed the cardinal ornament, so she may have wanted to eat the ornament—then again, she had been distracted by Camille's reception of treats from "Auntie Michelle"; so, she may have been licking her lips for treats!

12:22 AM & Reilly Is Not Barking At the Fireworks Yet

Patiently, "Momma" is waiting to hear as the next New Year's fireworks go off as a neighborhood-rule violator once again uses a holiday to commit reckless endangerment and breaches of the peace...

12:26 AM: The girls just came down a-barking and "Mom-Mom" stated that "The fireworks woke them up."

12:27 AM: "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" explained to the girls that a "dingbat" set off fireworks.

12:28 AM: After Reilly gets scritches from "Momma" for about a minute and flouts "Shanah Tovah" as she gets distracted by a "nasty", she rings the bell to go "peedy" outside.

12:30 AM: She rings again (Hint, "Auntie Michelle"!)

When (or if) "Auntie Michelle" finally decides to take Reilly "peedy" for the night (and Reilly rang the bell again at 12:31 and 12:32), "Momma" will see whether Reilly behaves during her "peedy" session to start off 2017 well. Whether "Auntie Michelle" puts the computer down already and takes Reilly "peedy" is another question...and she finally put the computer down at 12:33.

At 12:34 (as "Auntie Michelle" kvetches and is at least taking Reilly "peedy"), "Momma" continues live updates to chronicle 2017 so far...

12:36 AM: Reilly actually behaved, per "Autie Michelle"! And "Momma" thought that she ha a guilty look at first!

12:38 AM-about 1:00 AM: "Momma"'s final thoughts for the night and first night of 2017:

  1. Taking Reilly "potty" took "Auntie Michelle" long enough; didn't it?! Meanwhile, tonight is Day Eight of both Christmas (January 1st) and Hanukkah (Zot Chanukkah; Tevet 2, 5776, per moonwatchers in Israel whom stated that the New Moon occurred on December 30, 2016). Little Christmas (HaMolad HaKatan) is coming up, though. Still, "Momma" could use a "miracle" (Of course, the appropriate interjection is "God willing"; not "Hint; hint, God!")
  2. God willing, "Momma" will write about how she seemed to be at least of some use as "Auntie Nicole" while "Mom-Mom" and Camille's "Mimi" had to trim Camille on Friday. "Momma" will also (God willing) write about how, according to "Mom-Mom", Reilly was afraid when "Momma" kept the hannukiah lit for Zot Chanukkah.
  3. "Momma" and Reilly wish everyone a Happy 2017.
"Night nights" and Happy New Year from Reilly and "Momma"!

Reilly enjoys the first day of Chrismukkah 2016 with "Mom-Mom" and "Auntie Michelle".

PS 1:30 AM: Reilly's "Great-Granddaddy" Allen would've been 95 yesterday, and "Mom-Mom" did bring up the milestone this time.

A Summary Of Chrismukkah At Reilly's 🙂, And No Miracle Of a "Daddy" For Reilly 🙁

The highlights are as follows:

  1. At About 1:23 AM On The Day After Christmas: The female canine equivalent of Clara's brother Fritz decided to growl at the female canine equivalent of Clara...over toy monkeys, and this despite (as one can see below) that "Fritz"—or rather, "Frizz"—stole Reilly's toy monkey and put both monkeys in her crate on Christmas Day!
  2. The First Night Of Hanukkah (December 24th): Camille "Frizz" Czarnecki also stole Reilly Czarnecki's toy dreidel at least once. Speaking of stealing, admittedly, two Czarnecki humans used one of the toy dreidels to play the dreidel game when the two Czarnecki canines went to bed—though does that count as stealing or just playing the dreidel game with a treif dreidel in terms of kosher-for-human-use dreidels? By the way, each Czarnecki human ended up with halb of the pot—of course, neither of the Czarnecki canines could have any gelt!
  3. Reilly ended up really liking her toy monkey—in fact (as one can also see below, and on Twitter), she's snuggling with her monkey (which "Auntie Michelle" gave her to snuggle before she and Camille went "night nights") as "Momma" types (and who can resist tweeting cute pictures of Reilly and Camille?).
  4. Reilly still doesn't have a "Daddy", and "Momma" still has no clue what Reilly's possible "Daddy" wants*. At least Reilly's happy and healthy—and able to have the toy monkey that Camille wanted to steal from her, although a toy monkey and a "Daddy" for her (who could help "Momma" keep her happy and healthy) are far different.

*Can't he at least give her an idea—and surely, the same God Whom helped "Momma" to find a spare box of Hanukkah candles, just as He helped the Maccabees find spare oil for the Menorah, can move Reilly's possible "Daddy" to at least contact "Momma", can't He?

Merry Chrismukkah From Reilly & "Momma"!

Meanwhile, Reilly didn't exactly take the photoshoots well:

  1. The card was worth the photoshoots, though.
  2. "Momma" owes Reilly a treat.
  3. Merry Chrismukkah to all (including Reilly's possible "Daddy", of course. PS "Momma" could certainly use more support in doing these photoshoots, as "Mom-Mom"'s and "Auntie Michelle"'s condemnations of them—including accusations that "Momma"'s "torturing" Reilly—are quite the opposite of support.).

Over The Two Past Days Of the Winter Holidog Season...

Two "dogs"—adult puppies—have kept the Christmas and Hanukkah Season incredibly unboring. For example, the brat known as Camille defied "Auntie Nicole" by trying to stay out of her crate during naptime—since she knows that "Santa" is going to spoil her anyway:

Reilly enjoyed playing with the Fortune Cookies toy out of which Camille literally chewed the stuffing (with more on that later):

And Reilly also tolerated "Momma" once again as she wrapped up some online business and got to bed late, and let "Momma" flick up both ears for cute pictures:

Incidentally, "Momma" was exhausted and got herself and Reilly to bed much earlier than usual (That's what "Momma" gets for cutting off caffeine for the day too far from bedtime—and for relapsing into going "night nights" too late—at least Reilly got some more sleep last night.).

Reilly enjoyed belly rubs and scritches from "Mom-Mom" before bed, meanwhile:

And "Momma" thought again of whom she thinks—or at least hopes—will be Reilly's "Daddy"—and she thinks of him everyday (even though thinking of him is part of what exhausts her, albe that thinking of him will be worth if he ends up being Reilly's "Daddy"). Besides, for example and as Reilly demonstrated this morning, to have someone to roll over Reilly, ask her "Who rules?", and have her surrender to a belly rub would help—so would having someone whom could "get that puppy" (as "Mom-Mom" says) when Reilly playfully runs with a toy in her mouth.

How Reilly Coped With "Auntie Michelle" And "Momma" Having Friends Over

She coped well, actually—and she and "Auntie Michelle" even did an impromptu photo shoot, which was all impromptu on Reilly's part:

Relaxing beforehand.

Reilly is warming up to a friend.

Reilly's looking to see what's happening.

"Auntie Michelle" goofing with her furniece, whom's giving her kisses and receiving belly rubs.

Of course, "Mom-Mom" got stockings for her grandbrats.

PS To be honest, Reilly probably coped better than "Momma" overall—e.g., there were points when "Momma" sure'd've loved help to roll over a barky Reilly and ask her, "Who rules?". Also, puppies and even friends can't fill a certain kind of void.
