Santa Points

Hi friends!

The second greatest holiday is quickly approaching. Christmas is in less than two weeks. Christmas is the holiday Santa Paws brings your presents, lots of people are around to sneak you food and everyone has a big dinner! You are probably saying, "Mister, if it has all that, then why does it come in second?"

I'm glad you asked. I rank Christmas second because unlike Thanksgiving, Christmas is also a very strange holiday that I don't completely understand. First, humans bring a tree inside the house then expect you to NOT pee on it. Then, Santa Paws brings presents, but he drops them down the chimney, where they get dirty. Plus, you're not allowed to bark at Santa! THEN, humans have to do lots of stuff which takes their attention away from you. Finally, lots of people ring your doorbell to leave packages. That doorbell is my arch nemesis.

So that's why Christmas is second. Too confusing to be first, but way better than Halloween or Firework Boomie Day (also called the Fourth of July).

I got a great surprise today. My daddy stayed home from that work place. Mom still had to go though, but I decided to give Dad an early Christmas present. I was a very good boy! My day started like normal. Mom gave me the B word (breakfast in case you don't speak Mister) and took me on a W-A-L-K. But Dad was still in bed! Once he was up, Mom was ready to leave for that work place. So Dad took me on a c-a-r r-i-d-e.

I really like Dad's seat warmers

When we got home, I didn't even notice Mommy was missing until way after Daddy finished the B word. I still got up on the couch with him. Until the Wood Guy rang my doorbell. He left us lots of logs for the fireplace. Then, I got back on the couch until Mom came home for lunch.

The best part is after Mom went back to work (well, that's not the best part), but I stayed on the couch the WHOLE time. Even when UPS Guy rang the bell. Dad told me to stay and I did. I never left the couch the entire time Mom was gone.

See? Snug as a bug in a rug

Friends, that is HUGE news for me. I hate nothing more than when Mommy is gone and it doesn't really matter if Dad's there or not, so for me to not pace and whine is a big deal, let alone relaxing on the couch!  Mom says I've earned extra Santa points AND big bed privileges!


  1. Well done you and let's hope you will fret less and less when mummy is away. Onwards and upwards. Not long now till the big day. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Good job. Staying in your comfort zone til mom gets home is good little one

  3. I'm so proud of you, Mister. It's hard not to worry when mom is away so to stay calm on the couch the whole day is just pawesome! Well done pal. I just know Santa will be bringing you something special.
