I've been Christmas tagged

I'm a little late in the game. I've had trouble getting computer time what with the puppy and all. My person just isn't getting on as much. That should soon pass, so we just have to be patient.

For Christmas tag, you say three things you want and three things you don't. Here are mine

Things I'd really like
1. I'd like at least three solo fetch sessions a day (right now, I often have to share with Rafe and he steals all the tennis balls)
2. More chest rubs sitting next to my person on the couch

3. For my favorite person, Moni, to visit me every day

Things I'd not like
1. Another new kitty2. Any kind of grooming or baths
3. For my person to keep trying to teach me to "roll over"

I tag Cubby, Pappy, Max, Ayatollah Mugsy and Chester

The Rules: The player of this game starts with "3 things he/ she would love to get for Christmas" and also has to list "3 things he/ she definitely does not want to get for Christmas". Then he/she tags 5 friends and list their names. The ones who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. And the one who tags need to leave a comment that says "you've been Christmas tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

A note on our puppy: Copper asked what kind of puppy he is and if he'll look like the rest of us. He's a little Border Collie and he will look a little bit like all of us (except for Renzo). He'll be speckly, black and white like Tansy and me; his ears will probably stand up like Hamish's; and he'll have a smooth coat like Rafe. Just like all of us, he has a white tip on his tail and his tail curls under like a shepherd's crook (little known Border Collie fact--when Border Collies are working, we hold our tails down, very close to our bodies, but when we play, we hold them up. There are some YouTube videos of Border Collies "herding", but you can tell they are really playing because their tail is up instead of down). He already has started to do the typical Border Collie crouch and stare that we use to make the sheep listen to us. He's been using it on the dastardly cat.

That picture up there is our holiday picture--we also used it to apply to the HULA hoop.
