If I could, I’d come to each of your houses and give you a wiggle and a woof. I’d lick your face if you let me and wiggle in your arms if you picked me up.

I’d bring my favorite stuffed squirrel to play with and you’d toss it and I’d run, grab it, and bring it back to you. If you have slippers lying around, I’d grab one of those and run with it. I love biting the end of a slipper, shaking it like the dickens back and forth, and then bounding up to the top of the sofa with it as my prize. Eventually, you’d get it back.

I love wearing my new little red collar and going on long walks, but not past the two reindeer on that one guy’s lawn. They have pretty white lights shimmering all over their bodies, which is cool, but they move! Can you believe it? Their heads swivel from side to side, which totally freaks me out. I lunge at them, and Mom says, “No” and pulls me away. I turn and growl a bit and then let them be.

I hear it’s like that with some families at Christmastime. There might be one or two relatives that cause a little disturbance and others want to lunge and growl and make a big noise. I think Mom has the right idea. Turn your cheek and walk away. If at all possible, of course.

This is a time of year for much family good cheer, eggnog, bacon squares, board games and laughter and fun. May your days be happy and filled with love. Whatever you do on these special days, remember the reason for the season. God loves you. God loves me too, or he wouldn’t have given me this wonderful home. I’m thankful.

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you!
Wiggles & Woofs,

    Charlie: I’d love the doggie kisses! I’d hate to give you my cold, though. Hope you and your family stay well and have a Merry Christmas.

    Charlie Bear, you asked how we are celebrating Christmas? Mom bought stupid antlers (cloth) to put on our heads. We look ridiculous! (You can see us at Marsha Hubler’s Facebook page.) Mom also bought me a red collar with a big bell on it. She says I HAVE to wear that because when we go for walks and she lets me loose from the leash, I run like crazy. With the bell, she knows where I am.
    Our peeps have already given us goodies for Christmas. I just devoured a chewy bone in about five minutes. Skip is still working on his after about 15 minutes, but that’s because he’s old and his teeth hurt.
    I’d place a safe bet that we pooches have been adopted by very loving peeps. I’m very thankful for that. Luv you, Bailey

      Bailey and Skippy,
      Sounds like you are having a fantastic Christmas already — bones and antlers on your head and jingle bells ringing. Awesome!

      Woofs to you and Clyde & Merry Christmas. Have a fun sleepover, and enjoy a special bone on Christmas morning. I’ll be sure to tell Mom Peep your great sentiments.
