Just To Appease You



Dear Diary, 

Well, let's see... why am I not in the mood for Christmas my Mom asks.  Well...

1.  You moved my recliner and replaced it with a dozen houses, a forest, fake people and a train that makes an awful noise....

2.  Suddenly the house is filled with bright lights.  It's hard for a girl to get a decent afternoon snooze around here with all that brightness...

3.  There are days when boxes of stuff are everywhere and I have a terrible time trying to find my Gumby or my chew bone.  Geesh...

4.  You're starting to talk about my Christmas antlers and that red Christmas sweater and believe me, I know what they are.  You put them on me, laugh, shoot some pictures... then laugh some more.  



So you thought taking me for a walk in spite of the cold conditions outside was going to make it all better?  Not on you're life lady.  But I'll go.  Just to appease you.  You'll have to do better than that.  

Gracie.

  6. Gracie does NOT look happy; it sounds like she shares the same sentiment that others do when the Christmas holidays roll around; a lot of fuss!

    Hang in there Gracie!

  9. Gracie, Koda "feels your pain". Last year we moved his crate to put the Christmas tree there, he got sick, cost us a vet visit to get his stomach on the right track. Needless to say, the tree is going in a different location this year! But maybe there are some good things for the season ahead, there could be an extra treat or two wrapped up with your name on it under the Christmas tree :)

  10. Oh, poor Gracie! The indignities you must undergo at this this time of the year!! Never you mind, I think that mommy will have a special gift for you at Christmas, it's not all bad, even for a cute little white dog!

  13. Tootie hates going out in the cold....by herself, that is. So I have to stand out there with her while she does her business and I hate that! Since I got her at Christmas time, this is the first one for her. So far, she's liking it...I think! LOL

  15. Samson Says: Hello Gracie, I really feel for you. No decorations around here. I think Mommy is worried I might chew them all up. Hey, that's an idea...grab a few and chew on them and I bet she'll put them all away. Especially those antlers!!

  16. Oh how precious! I know three furry babies here at Verde Farm that are telling me right now they completely agree with Gracie. Pappy says if I pull out that red hat he is going under the bed and never coming out :)
