I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas. I had a really great one. This year, Amy’s niece Ashlie got her this book, What Dogs Want For Christmas. After reading it one afternoon, it got me thinking, “What does this dog want for Christmas?”
I tried to give Amy some not so subtle hints. I am a border collie after all.
But as it turns out, a townhouse in the suburbs of Northern Virginia isn’t the best place for a flock of sheep. So, I had to settle for some other things that wanted for Christmas like…a blizzard the weekend before Christmas so that by the time Christmas arrived, Amy’s parents’ backyard would have the perfect amount of snow to play snow frisbee!
Here I am with Ashlie and Kaitlyn, we all LOVE the snow.
Playing snow frisbee makes me very happy.
Not only does snow frisbee combine playing in the snow with playing frisbee but, whenever you get thirsty, you don’t have to stop and go get some water, you can just eat the snow!
Delicious! (As long as you stick with the white snow.)
Even people love playing in frisbee in the snow. Amy’s cousins decided to play ultimate snow frisbee. Here I am scoping out the competition.
Get out of my way Kathy, that frisbee is mine!
So what else was on this dog’s list for Christmas? Maybe it’s behind this wrapping paper.
It’s tooth paste! Okay, so you might think a dog getting tooth paste for Christmas is as exciting as a human getting socks (actually, Amy did request and receive socks for Christmas a few years ago) but I actually love toothpaste and getting my teeth brushed. Yay!
She also got me two doggie cookies from Wylie Wags, an angel, because of course, I’m an angel, and a cupcake.
Finally, what does this dog, really, really want for Christmas? This! That’s right, a laser pointer, more than anything, more than toothpaste, or doggie cookies, or snow, chasing a laser light is my favorite thing in the world.
And okay, maybe she didn’t get it in time for Christmas but the day after Christmas, Amy bought one, two, three…SEVEN laser lights! They were all half off and she stocked up. I tend to go through laser pointers pretty quickly, so this should hopefully last us for the next year at least. Best Christmas EVER!
