  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Wow, I don't even know where to start! Deb and her girls were more than generous. This is the first time we've really opened gifts around the boys. Rio proved right away he was the expert on opening presents. Ziti was really only interested in stuff after Rio got it opened. Lol

So, without further delay, here's the run down of our amazing Secret Santa packages!

Here's the pile of presents before we got started on opening them.

Each pup received an awesome harness with matching leash from Shadedmoon. They are super soft, and fit each pup perfectly.

They each also received two sets of jammies, one heavy, and one light. The boys didn't have anything custom fit for them, so they are very excited for the warm jammies!

The gang received an awesome assortment of stuffies! They didn't know which way to go as more stuffies kept coming!

Up next, were several kinds of treats, a treat ball dispenser, and some Paul Mitchell puppy wipes.

Of course, no Iggy Christmas is complete without nice, soft blankets. The larger blanket was handmade!

The rest of the goodies were for me! There were Donut Shop K-Cups (my favorite!), an "I Love Italian Greyhound" magnet, 6 cute little Iggy fridge magnets, beautiful IG notecards, a pair of amazing greyhound bookends, and an absolutely beautiful necklace with the names of all four pups stamped on charms. Whew!

Here are some pictures of the chaos while the gifts were bring opened. Please ignore Paige's runny, red eyes. I don't know what to do to make them better! Also, try to ignore my messy couches. I no sooner straighten them out, and the Iggies attack!

Oh, I forgot to show Diesel's goodies!

Kim, you guys are so very welcome! I had a ball shopping for you and your crew. These pictures warm my heart. I'm so happy that Diesel enjoyed himself, too. My Sabrina wanted to steal Diesel's gifts. I love that the harnesses fit well. Niki sewed them from the measurements that you gave me. The heavy jammies were also made to measure by Marilyn at Sighthound Specialties. :)
