Christmas is over and we are back in our routine. Getting ready for Christmas was lots of fun. We got to help Mom make lots of Christmas gift baskets, write out our Christmas cards and wrap all of the gifts.
On Christmas Eve DixieLee and I got to open one of OUR gifts. We each got a fun toy that has a ball to catch on one end and a tail to tug on the other. I got a blue one and she got a red one. Or did I get the red on and she get the blue one?
Christmas morning was not so much fun. We rushed breakfast so Mom and Dad could leave early to go visit Mom’s human family. It was snowing really, really hard and it was really, really dark when the left. They were gone for a very long time and DixieLee was worried they were never coming back.
I knew Mom was coming back cuz she told us she was when she left. She told us Tracie, our neighbor, was going to take care of us and when she came home, we would get to open another gift.
Tracie, came to feed us and let us outside but DixieLee cried and wanted Mom and Dad. She was not on her best behavior, barking and carrying on. She wouldn’t listen good to Tracie except when she was bribed with cookies. Then she was miss goody four paws.
It was hard waiting for Mom and Dad to come home and to see what our other gifts were. Having very bad weather made it worse since we couldn’t go outside much during the day and they had to drive very slow so it took forever for them to get home.
It was well worth the wait! We got extra treats and our big gift was a new unstuffed Zanie! Unstuffed Zanies are good fun. They have TWO squeakers! I got a chipmunk and DixieLee got a coyote. Or did I get the coyote and DixieLee get the chipmunk?
It’s good to get back into our routine but I think it would be fun to have more Christmas times. At least the present part.
Hope your Christmas was good and you got lots of toys and treats and bestest wishes for a healthy and happy 2018 from everyone at Paw Pals Boutique.
