Christmas with Our Dog Lucy

Having no children of my own, I spoil our dog Lucy and she milks for all it’s worth. We sent parcels back east to my family and wrapped up a present for their dog; Lucy knowing it was a toy tried numerous times to sneak it out of the box—when it comes to toys and treats it’s impossible to hide it from her.

Christmas eve she woke up to go outside, once indoors she stopped by the Christmas tree knowing her presents were there. She gave a whimper, but she was told she had to wait until morning.

Since we’re staying at my grandparents for the winter in their basements suite, their dog Sally comes downstairs and visits often; so naturally they had to open their gifts together.

Warm Wishes for the Holidays

Tis the season to be jolly and I’ll be making the best of it (grin). I have a three day schedule that starts tonight with dinner at my aunt and uncles’. Tomorrow is another gathering and feast at another relatives’ and last but not least on Boxing Day a big dinner at my grandparents.

With all this celebrating I’ll have to add another notch to my belt.

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to spend the holidays with my relatives on Vancouver Island (something I only did once before), I’ll also be thinking of my family back home in Ontario and wishing they were here with me.

I wish you the very best for Christmas and the holidays.
