When Toby Met Baby

Before I get to the meeting of Toby and Baby, I feel I should introduce Baby.

Because this isn't just any baby, it's my nephew.

On December 10, 2009 at 4:49, Jackson Elliot was born unto the world to my brother and sister in law.


This means it was the first Christmas for the baby, and our first time having a baby at the Jakel Family Christmas. Grandma and Grandpa J were very proud and happy to hang with their first grandchild.



And Toby was very curious about this new little bundle was getting all of the attention. So, we introduced them.


I think I've seen Toby have that look in his eye before. Like when he saw a pork chop resting on the counter and attempted to swallow it whole.

Thankfully, Toby deemed Jack inedible and did not try to eat him.

Snow Dog

We finally got our first heavy snow of the winter last night. From the looks of it, I'd say we have about 4 inches on the ground at our house.

I love the snow, but the only problem is - so does Toby. Which means, he goes outside and doesn't want to come back inside. And then the house feels kind of lonely without the little big guy here.


So, if you happen to come driving by our house you'll most likely see this snowy face looking back at you.


And you should tell him to come inside because his owner misses him.
