My two-legs doesn’t seem all that happy at the moment. I know she’s worrying about stuff, ’cause she hasn’t even dug out the Christmas tree yet. And there isn’t even a hint of a turkey…
She doesn’t even mention the mud on my nose and paws when I’ve been burying stuff…
But she says it’s all good and I needn’t worry. And I trust her, so what can I do?
She says lots of things seem harder this time of year, for lots of people and that we have a lot to be grateful for… like food and shelter and each other.
And she’s right, really, we don’t need much more than that…
Though turkey would be nice.
But maybe you could put a little hope and warmth in the stockings of those who don’t even have that much?
My friend Maggie and her two-legses have not had a great year, but I am hoping things are looking a bit brighter for them this Christmas.
Maybe you could put something really special in your sack for Maggie?
My letter to Santa is to ask him to make things easier.
Hopefully we can enjoy Christmas with all the trimmings but there are some significant differences around us. 2019 has not been a good year, but it is nearly behind us now and my two-legses are doing OK, but it has been hard on them for various reasons.
The lady next door looked after me one day when they had to go out. It was really hot so I couldn’t go as I normally would and I made her nervous. She’s very nice though and spends a lot of time in our house at the moment whilst she finds her feet after her husband died. I don’t mind as she sneaks me bits of biscuit, but she’s not used to dogs and I didn’t understand that, so I’m trying to make amends and be forgiven.
I hope Santa can spread a little bit of relaxation and worry relief this way. We can all cope with problems one at a time, but not loads altogether.
PS: Could you hide or chew the antlers, or would that put you in the doghouse?
About Maggie’s two-legs
Maggie’s two-legs is Di, who writes at pensitivity101. She says of herself, “I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 ‘Home’ was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.”
