Tis The Season - Pay the Tax

Tis The Season and in our house that can only mean one time. Time to pay the hat tax.

What is the hat tax you ask?

It is the price we pay for living as 'freeloaders' in this house. Lady says since we do not contribute financially, and only cost her money, several times a year we can amuse her by having to wear hats or dress up so she can take pictures and post them all over the internet. 

Here are the pictures from the first round of Christmas hat tax. Because the Man is still recovering from surgery, this year we only put up our Hanukkah themed tree because Lady could do this on her own (the 15 foot one is too heavy for her to do alone).

Hope our humiliation amused you all!

Tis the season!


  1. you paid that tax very well and even with tipp ;O)

  2. Momma and I reached an agreement -- I'll wear whatever silly thing she wants and pose with whatever she asks, but I WON'T wear anything on my head!!

  3. I hope you pups still got your two yum yum doggie treats for posing so nicely. I'm with Matilda: nothing goes on the head that I can't pull off and play keep-away with!

  4. Mama is very amused...but we are bowing our heads in solidarity!

  5. Hat that is 100% hilarious....but I guess it is better than having to give up Precious or treats

  6. Sorry, we did laugh. Hat Taxes....hmmmmmm. You protect your house and peeps from marauding turkeys, and deer, and foxes. We think you do a great job...not to mention all the love and laughter you bring to your home. Just cost money, indeed. Your hat wearing did give us a giggle this morning, too.

  7. i am totally amused and happy to see you being silly.. I love to see what your lady passes around about you.. glad you have a tree and sorry dad is still not back to normal.. I love the idea of Hat Tax..

  8. You two do not look very happy. We're glad we don't have to pay a hat tax around here too.

  9. We hope the Man is doing well. With the crazy funk Mom is in, we haven't seen those hats around here YET - but we have a funny feeling they will be making an appearance soon:(

    Your tree is very nice.

  10. Pay the tax!!! It sure did make me giggle!

  11. Oh yes! I was amused!!! BOL!!!!! Ma says she totally agrees abouts the tax. I do not. I thinks we puppers do LOTS to contribute. I am goin' to put that in my letter to Santa Paws.
    Anyhu, since the peeps are the ones that can open the treatie bags and reach the foods, I guess we have to play along. at least they aren't antlers.....

  12. I really, really love this! Because you may remember, I have just done the same thing at our house, but there was no play n' pay legislation. But after reading this, I am in TOTAL agreement about the hat tax. So, from now on, it's going to be the law in our parts! :-)

  13. We are not going to let mOm see this!

  14. {Snicker} Oops sorry, I did enjoy your humiliation, but just for a quick second. Cheer up, the season is quickly flying by.

  15. Dear friends,

    Please do not tell our person about the hat tax. Thank you.
