Thank you to all who have ordered calendars to support our cause. Limited quantities are still available. If interested, email me at

Happy Festivus

With M&D being such big fans of the TV show Seinfeld — evidenced in part by my namesake — it only seems fitting that we share the story of Festivus with you. 

Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as a way to celebrate the holiday season without participating in its pressures, religious aspects and commercialism. It was created by writer Dan O'Keefe and introduced into popular culture by his son Daniel, a screenwriter for Seinfeld, as part of a comical storyline on the show. The holiday's celebration, as shown on Seinfeld, includes an unadorned aluminum "Festivus pole," practices such as the "Airing of Grievances" and "Feats of Strength," and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles." Celebrants of the holiday sometimes refer to it as "a Festivus for the rest of us," a saying taken from the O'Keefe family traditions and popularized in the Seinfeld episode to describe Festivus' non-commercial aspect.

A Festivus for the rest of us

Deck the Halls and Brushtown Bullies and Boxer

Triple Threat decked out for Christmas

More than just halls with boughs of holly are decked out in Brushtown, Pennsylvania. Keeping up with Grammy Knowlton's tradition that Christmastime was the time to put your best paw forward, we decided to don our holiday attire a little early in hopes that we will inspire you too, to get in the spirit. 

PS - After countless hours and tutorials on how to remove red/green eye from photos using Photoshop, Mom gave in and allowed me to post this photo of me with my demon siblings.

Times flies when you're having fun

Oh my how the time doth fly when you're having fun, and we have been having fun. The Triple Threat has been so busy as of late that once again it has taken away from my blogging duties. I know, I know. Everyone is busy during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

So much for a white Christmas!

Speaking of the holiday season, Dog Scout Troop 161 once again participated in bell ringing for the Salvation Army at our the local Wal-mart in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. I must admit that we "rocked the Red Kettle" and brought in lots of Fi-dough.

Even though we contribute money to various causes throughout the year, bell ringing definitely tops our list for activities that we love doing the most. After all, we get to have fun and raise money for those less fortunate than our elf selves.

Relief ringers arrive for a changing of the guards

After a photo shoot for our 2012 Calendar, we were allowed to release some pent up frustration in the backyard by attacking a Mad Elf. Enjoy!

Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday Season!
