Wait a second, what’s that smell?

Toby the Christmas cookie thief

COOOOOOOOOOOOOKIES!!!!

Santa’s sleigh is on his way, so I’ll be signing off to spend time with this little cookie monster and the rest of our family :-) Hope you all have a wonderful holiday break filled with joy and laughter (and snow, if you’re lucky!) Thank you SO much for another great year here at Little White Whale – virtual high fives all around! I’ll see you back here in the new year, friends!

Toby the French bulldog dreams of turkey

Time has been flying by so quickly that having a few days off to loaf around with friends and family sounds like absolute heaven. And as you can see, Toby’s been dreaming of this day ALL month :-) Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with lots of love and buttery mashed potatoes!

toby the french bulldog in his Halloween pineapple costume

Happy Halloween from this tasty little pineapple I picked up at the grocery store! He’s always absolutely thrilled when Halloween comes around – can you see it in his face? And here and here? Toby’s costume this year was super duper easy to make. I stapled a piece of elastic to a toilet paper tube and layered green construction paper leaves around it for his hat, and used some markers to draw a geometric pattern on a kids yellow tee. A girl we met on the street commented that the costume would translate well into a human costume too, and I totally agree!

On another note – Hubs and I were reading in bed last night when out of the corner of my eye, I saw the closet door on his side of the bed suddenly shut by itself à la Paranormal Activity. To say I freaked out would be an understatement!! So we peered over, half expecting to find some gruesome goblin, and…we found one! It turns out that Toby was in such a deep sleep that he toppled halfway out of his bed, causing his leg to hit the closet door. He totally got me back or dressing him up as a piece of fruit :-) Well played, Toby, well played.

Wishing you all a safe and fun night!

fall with toby

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this photo my husband took of me and Toby while we were at my aunt’s house a few weeks ago was…

My buddy (my buddy), my buddy (my buddy)! Wherever I go, HE goes!

Hope you all get out there and enjoy the fall weather this weekend!

Toby the French bulldog tantrum

Behold, Toby’s new trick of the summer! He calls it the “I kindly disagree with the direction we’re going in”, alternatively known as “I wish to sniff this rock for an extra 30 minutes. Please go on without me”. It is simultaneously hilarious and frustrating, as passersby scoot around us and giggle at the scenario – me desperately trying to get his butt off the ground, and Toby pretending he has no bones in his entire body. We’re a regular Laurel & Hardy act! Luckily he’s turning 3 next month, so hopefully these Terrible Two tantrums will soon be ancient history…fingers crossed. Otherwise we may have to invest in a little red wagon to pull him home in :-) Happy Friday!

patriotic Toby

“Are we SURE we bought enough hot dogs? Maybe I should count them again…”

Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend filled with fireworks, watermelon, and sunscreen! And hopefully not too much rain from Tropical Storm Arthur [Debbie Downer trombone sound]. Happy 4th of July, friends!
