Ani’s Advent 2020! Meet Ruff, Smidgeon and Cathy Cade!

Dear Santa,

Yay! We are finally counting down to Christmas! It seems to have taken ages to come around this year! But it hasn’t been a great year for anyone, two-legses or four. I mean, there is this bug thing going round and I know it is worrying people and stopping them from meeting and hugging… and that is never good! Even flea treatments don’t stop me getting hugged, so it must be a really big bug… She tells me that you don’t have to worry about it though and that the reindeer are safe from it… so that’s one bit of good news!

There is othernews, though, not so good. They’ve dug up my fields to plant a high speed train line across them… which means I can’t walk where I usually go any more. All my lovely green has gone… And to make matters worse, my two-legs is broken and getting her out for a walk is not easy any more.

She says it is because I get too excited… but what’s a girl to do when outside beckons? She gets excited too when they get to go out to play, so I know she understands!

So, there may have been a bit of comfort eating going on. Although, so far, I haven’t gone quite as far as Lucky… well… not this year. Yet. After the last time I pinched the turkey… and the ham… and the salmon… I don’t fancy having to diet at Christmas… or spend it in the doghouse!

Come on over to The Small Dog’s Blog
