My Rottweiler Elf

I had a few gifts to wrap so asked my resident 'unwilling' elf to help me. Told Ben to sit so I could put the elf hat on him but he felt embarrassed. Ben said he was a killer Rottweiler and this was beneath him but because he loved me so much would sit for a photo shoot.  Uh, he got a cookie as payment.
As his mom didn't like how the one eye was covered asked Ben to go to the kitchen for another photo shoot.  He decided to lay down for this one.  And, BTW, his lip sometimes sticks on his teeth so he is NOT growling or showing aggressive behaviour toward me.  He is a sweet boy but no doubt would protect me to the end.
As moms would have it I wanted one more shot to get the bell to hang just right.  Although I tried all the key words to get his head up in position he just looked out of the corner of his eyes as to say..."please, enough is enough and give me my other cookie".

So my Ben elf got his other cookie and retreated to the computer room where I'm posting this.  I just looked at him now as a sleepy boy in the only furniture he is allowed on which is covered with a fleece throw.
 Another photo by the paparazzi fur mom.
Will show an update on my rug soon but did want to give everyone of my blogger friends a 'hello' from me and Ben to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and to my Jewish followers a happy Hanukkah.
