Holidays from a Dog’s Perspective
PA - Okay. This year I’ve just got to ask! This is my fifth
holiday season. That’s 35 holiday seasons in human years. Yet, I’m
perplexed. Here’s my quandary.
you go away every morning – to do goodness knows what, and I guard
the house between my naps. (What can I say? It’s a dog’s life.)
Then you’re home eight hours later wanting to play with me and my
squeaky toys. So I indulge you until you’re worn out, and we snuggle
in front of the television until it’s time to do it all over again.
Now, I think
this is a very nice routine. So why do you insist on doing everything

home all day doing the oddest things, and I can’t sleep.
gone in the evening, and that’s OUR time.
- You play
strange music – some with dogs barking in it. (You don’t
laugh when I bark like that!).
- You bring
outside things inside. And I must say, I’m confused about the
whole “go potty” routine at this point. I “go”
under trees outside – why is it different in the house? (By the

- And worst
of all – you embarrass me. Those reindeer antlers are ridiculous!
I don’t understand any of this, I’m willing to compromise
and let you proceed with your strange traditions, because I love you so
much and am devoted to your happiness. Invite all those people over. Just
know they’re going to spill things on the carpet – so don’t
blame me for -- well, you know. And, please tell your guests in lieu of
hostess gifts you’d like them to go to www.dogtoys.com and bring
me cinna-swirls, p-nutty biscottis and chip nips so that you can stop
feeling guilty every time you tell me “no” when I beg for
For the record,
I like the big red paw stocking and all those toys and treats that jolly
man in red put in there. He can come back!
