Gather around the fire, little pups, and let me tell you a Christmas story . . .
The older doggies might remember when I talked about the Hotel Captain Cook's Pastry Chef, Joe Hickel. He's the one that builds a big Christmas Gingerbread Village every year.
Uncle Joe has a website where people can go and watch him make his village every year. He has fans all around the world.
You can see his website here: http://www.captaincookchristmas.com/ It looks like this:
Come on Mama. Let's go. I'll steer, you work the pedals. I know where we're going.
When we got there, we had to stop and say Hello to Ol' Saint Nick. I gave him my Christmas list.
Mama gave him her Christmas list too. I told Ol' Saint Nick that mama's been good all year.
They also had a big Christmas Tree there. Isn't it pretty?
Bet you didn't know I could howl in German, did ya?
Hey Mama! I found Uncle Joe! He's in his civilian clothes!
Hiya Uncle Joe. How ya been?
Long time no see. I missed ya!
I decided to check out his village while Uncle Joe talked with his fans. He depends on my opinion, you know, so I gotta do a good job.
Let's have a look here. This looks very good. It smells even better.
Hey Mama, you getting this on camera? Doesn't it look pretty? Too bad you don't have as good a smeller as I do. It all smells delicious.
Look at the detail of this scene. Isn't it fantastic?
Oh look. This house is very pretty.
Do you see this, Mama? There's an ice(ing) cave!
Hey, what's this? Are those little people in there?
Oh bow wow! How did he shrink those horses? I think Uncle Joe might be magical!
Oh! Here's another very pretty house. Get a close up of this one, Mama.
Look here mama. Uncle Joe built a whole subdici- . . . subdiv- . . . subci . . . neighborhood!
That almost looks like our street, don't it mama?
I must shake your paw Uncle Joe. You did a great Job! You are a true Artist!
You know what? You did such a good job I'm gonna give you one of my SnooterSnacks. You earned it.
You go ahead and eat that SnooterSnack, Uncle Joe. It's delicious. And well deserved!
And that's the story of me, Uncle Joe and the Gingerbread Village.
We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!
