My First Christmas Party!

That's right - this is my very FIRST Christmas party that I've attended!
My raiser had many that she planned on attending - but most of them decided a Christmas party is better in January. So I've got many to attend NEXT month. I don't get why they call it a Christmas party... if it's after Christmas!?
Oh well! This Christmas party was quite fun; with lots, lots AND lots of food - but I wasn't allowed ANY at all to taste :(
I was a very good boy, and stayed in a down-stay while everyone ate - my raiser sat with a group of girls - who all decided to eat on the ground... which made my "leave it" very hard. But I was good - and didn't touch the food once!
After they took forever to eat - the girls opened each other's gifts; and handed out their homemade Christmas cards. then heading outside... to play flashlight tag! I was furry good at keeping my raiser running - I don't know if I ever stopped running...
Soon we got tired of playing and we headed to my raiser's friend's room to hang out for hours on end.
They turned on some awesome dance music... and danced to it - all while I was in a down-stay watching them dance. I wasn't allowed to join in on the fun at all :(
I was a good boy though; and didn't break the stay - even when they stepped on me a couple times...
My raiser is soo very proud at how well I did; and she even took my coat off later on in the night - and I stayed calm just for her!
My raiser looks forward to taking me to other Christmas parties (after Christmas) they are great exposures for me - and she's so happy I obeyed!
Below are some pictures of my awesome down-stay beside food (she didn't take any later on in the night - but may get some off her friend's camera).
Enjoy! (notice I'm wearing "my" Christmas collar in the pictures below- it is the same one Frankie & Toby both wore)
