A letter of complaint… from the Small Dog.

Dear Santa, I feel that I have to complain…

‘Cause my rotten two-legs has done it again!

I rose to her challenge, my friends gathered near,

So I’d not spend Christmas dressed up like a deer.

So did I get antlers? Well, honestly, no…

That mean, sneaky two-legs came up with a bow!

And granted, it’s Christmassy, all red and white,

But really, dear Santa, does that make it right?

She left me, I fear, with but one thing to do…

I took the thing off… and I had a good chew.

Much love,

  1. Sweet Ani! Happy Christmas! 🙂 (Smart puppy, too!)


  2. Ani, I must be honest, if I had a dog as beautiful as you, I would give her a bow too.

  5. Well, a bow is a little better than antlers. Not by a lot, but… I’d rather a bow to antlers for sure. At least we saved you from the antlers this year. Lots of licks, Lilie

    Oh, Ani! Now that is plain naughty of her!!!


  7. So cute but have to agree with the dog I’d probably nibble the bow too LOL Merry Christmas 🙂

    You do look cute in the bow. Better than antlers. If it makes you feel any better, I had to wear a bow to the beach today. I guess all the dogs had to be dressed up for Christmas. Licks, Dot.

    Dignity preserved, Ani. Though it was kind of cute… 😉 Hope you got lots of treats from Santa this year and your two-legs, as well. Happy Holidays!


  10. Sadje says:

    A betrayal! But you do look cute!


  11. Well done, Ani! You really should head over to the next model agency! HRH has her hats, and you pretty antlers. :-))

    The only thing a sensible small dog could do! 🙂


  13. I must admit, I quite like the Santa hat. It has a real sense of “Je ne sais quoi.”

    Just hilarious! And, really, that wasn’t really fair she replaced antlers with a bow, Ani. I do hope you had a good chew! LOL xoxo

    At least you chewed it right up, Ani. Then hope you had a good day, lots of paw love, Dante Dawg. xxx

    Ani, I am shocked, I had to wear the antlers….I always do, I just pretend I don’t notice! But that bow well as charming as you look it does befit a busy guard dog as yourself! We need to come up with some sort of revenge on our two legs… Nothing too harsh but a reminder that it is us really who are incharge! Love and sympathy Ruby.💜💜


  17. Jennie says:

    Oh, nooo! Chew away, Ani.


  18. Lyn Horner says:

    LOL Ani you are the cat’s meow! Love you and your sneaky two-legs. Happy New Year!


  19. These humans can be downright sneaky sometimes! I had to wear a Santa hat this year. Really, I’m getting too old for this sort of thing; Christmas is for kids.
