Merry Christmas!

Howdy blogaroos! Squirmy here on the Eve of Baby Jesus’ Birthday Bash. I sent my email last night to the guy in red- and truth be told- I stole a few lines from Viktor. That guy was a pretty good writer sometimes- and I kinda liked his message. Plus I was running out of time and copy and paste was my friend.

We had CRAZY wind and rain last night. We didn’t even want to go out to pee. I bet there were a lot of inflatable Santas and snowmen doing the Hokey Pokey last night. And a few that probably went airborne.

The Warden seems to be ready for the bearded dude although I think she still has some cleaning to do. When doesn’t she have cleaning to do? It’s really a futile hobby. But she must love it – she does it all the time.

So here’s my partly plagiarized letter to Santa. I’ll probably get coal for stealing words..

Dear Santa,

Before I get into my list, please disregard the previous email list that I sent to you. I hit the “send” button before I was finished with my message. You will note that the previous list included some sheep and a goat. I have subsequently taken that item off my list because I realized that my human has enough work taking care of us three dogs -so sheep and a goat would probably not be a good idea. Fun for us canines…but not for her.

I have tried to be a good dog this year with “tried” being the operative word. You see I have been diligent in writing this blog most of the time. And I actually engage in some of my antics purely for my readership because really, if I was well-behaved all the time, the blog would be would become quite boring. I must confess, I do enjoy ricocheting off humans and other canines and chasing birds and rabbits and the neighbors’ cat in the woods and running like a maniac around the dining room table each morning and licking Frodo’s face and ears so they get all goopy and and and…. well maybe not EVERYTHING was purely for my readership. I hope you will not hold those “indiscretions” against me.

So back to the list.  I had World Peace as number one- but I realize that’s a BIG order…

Some toys would be nice – although none of those “educational” toys. Thanks but no thanks. Something basic – like a toilet paper roll would be fine. We quite enjoy those.

No clothes. Again – thanks but no thanks. Give those to someone else who really needs them. And enjoys wearing them. And if you need antlers to give to some poor dog and your elves have run out of time to make them – let me know. I have several pairs to donate.

Of course, I always enjoy some treats.  And an extra helping of food would be nice.  Mind you, I already have those too.

We have a comfy bed – which we DO share. Although I personally prefer to lie on the tile floor. On my back. With my feet in the air. OR under the area carpet. Like no one can see me.

Let’s see what else could I ask for? Santa – perhaps what I will ask for is not for me. I will ask for something for every person (and dog) who is reading this blog. I ask that they share the joy and happiness that Christmas is all about . A smile, a handshake, a phone call, a text, a hug – realizing that Christmas ISN’T about the presents – but about those moments that you share with others. Human OR canine. OK. Cats too. And ferrets. And rabbits. But not snakes. OK. Snakes too. But just for today.

Santa I ask for peace and happiness within the hearts of those reading this – even if just for a moment.   And that feeling of pure joy – that we dogs know ALL about.  That’s what I wish for.

Oh – and if you DO decide to drop off a parcel – and you can’t fit down our chimney – I’ll leave the door open. And I’ll remind Frodo that’s it’s OK to let you in. I’m not sure about leaving you milk and cookies – it is likely one of us would eat it. Sorry about that….

Safe travels Santa – don’t forget to buckle up and you probably should also be wearing a helmet.   Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!

Your best friend.


The Boss said I was a bit presumptuous saying “your best friend.” Too late. Besides – all dogs are best friends!

To our loyal readers….Wishing all of you joy, love and laughter on this very special day. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus!

Have a great one. Peace and paws up. And stay safe.
