Another tradition. This one does not involve big buildings, flying machines, or even riding in a car. In fact, we don’t even leave our neighborhood.
First, Steve and Hoppi fill little bags with goodies for our neighbors. If those neighbors have canine companions, then an extra little bag is added. I gladly share some of my biscuits with the other pups around our home.
Then the wardrobe department (Steve) places my Reindog outfit on me. It changes each year. This time it was a colorful and fluffy collar plus a string of lights (like humans put on Christmas trees). And out the door we go.
Every human always smiles, says thank you, and gives me a pat on the head. If I’m lucky there is a belly rub as well. Nice!
Steve likes a song that sings about a reindeer running to deliver gifts. No need to do that here. Nice to stroll to each house, deliver the gift, and enjoy happiness. Kind of like what we do when we visit all those buildings. And we don’t have to leave our little shady street.
May you have a wonderful holiday with the humans and critters in your life. Thank you for reading my stories. If I don’t see you on my adventures, I will look for you here. May your day be filled with sunshine, good humans, and biscuits!
Thanks for coming back to my blog. You make me happier than biscuits!
My book, Roxie Looks for Purpose Beyond the Biscuit, is still available. I share stories and lessons about friends, family, and fun. And I speak about purpose as well. (Steve says for dogs we might just want to call it “furpose.” He makes words up, I think.) The book holds a biscuit or two for you or for a friend!
