Wrapped Around The Christmas Tree

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”

Christmas past
  Our Christmas tree is up. Maggie and I are ready for the holiday visitors that will start arriving in the month of December. Before this Christmas happens we pay homage to those from previous Christmas seasons. When we brought down the Christmas decorations we found a couple of photos in the pocket of one of my daughter’s old swim team parkas. In the two photos were our dog Scotty (Maltese) and a photo of one of Maggie’s human siblings at Middle School age. She had our dog Scotty in her arms. Scotty has long since passed and is running up in Heaven with his buddy Annie (our Yorkie). It brought back memories of Christmas past. We say thanks to Christmas’ past like in Bob Hope’s famous song Thanks For The Memory. This year is Maggie’s 2nd Christmas. She’s more grown up this year, but her youthful sparkle is still ignited. Over our Thanksgiving holiday we had visitors. Maggie was thrilled. It meant more people to play with her or for her to play with them. Also on her mind were the food goodies perhaps accidentally dropped beneath the dining room table. Maggie is like a four pawed vacuum. Thanks Maggie! Over the holiday Maggie watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, football and more football.

The biggest treat for Maggie was our sleepy little visitor that came to play. I do believe Maggie thought she was just for Maggie-her own personal fun buddy. That’s a whole other story about their playful adventures together. Mostly, it was fun having our little toddler in front of the tree next to Maggie’s cozy bed. Maggie attentively followed her around and provided her with lots of giggle material.

After all the excitement of laughter and joy the Thanksgiving holiday brought us, it was over. It was then back to the quiet zone of just zany Maggie providing the laughter. Maggie missed her toddler play pal. She searched the house looking for the little munchkin sniffing here and there wondering where she went. Maggie and I think it was very nice having our happy family wrapped around our Christmas tree. It was the best gift before Christmas.
Hurry back!

    Great to hear that Maggie likes having munchkins around – not all dogs are quite so keen 😉

    Maggie is such a sweet soul, but I wasn’t sure how gentle she would be since she’s not around a lot of little ones. Maggie was amazing. Unbelievable. She reminded me of the Newfoundland dog Nanny in Peter Pan, ever vigilant watching over or playing with the wee one. So sweet. :) :)
