A Not So Adventurous Weekend

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about our weekend.

There was a lot going on with our family this weekend, but not much of it involved  us dogs directly.  Friday, Mom and Dad were watching Peanut and Tractor Guy for a very important reason.  Their new baby sister was whelped and somebody needed to keep an eye on them.  After the human puppy was born, they went up to see her for a little bit, too.  She’s a tiny little thing, and I have a feeling she’ll be a cutie like Peanut when she gets bigger.

Twinkle ToesSaturday, I did accompany Mom and Dad on a little shopping trip.  They went to a place that was really pretty and festive, and I walked along the sidewalks with them while they did a little window shopping or waited while they ducked inside a few stores.  There weren’t any dog treats or toys for sale anywhere, so I wasn’t paying really close attention to what they were selling.

City SidewalksIt was fun to see all the people looking festive and cheerful while they shopped, though.  Have you noticed how humans seem so much friendlier and more cheerful this time of year?  I think there really is a little magic involved in this time of year.  I know I wag my tail more because I see the humans smiling and laughing more.  It’s infectious.  It seems hard to keep a glum face this time of year when you see so much happiness and warmth everywhere.

Busy SidewalksIt made me realize that we have a lot to be happy about.  I mean, how many hounds have humans that will get shoes to match their ensembles?  It’s good to see people celebrating and making merry.  Part of me wishes this time of year happened all the time, but then I think about how Mom said we have to cut back on certain things this month, like dog bakery cookies, so we can get gifts for everyone, and I think maybe it’s okay to have something to look forward to just once a year.  After all, part of what makes it special is waiting all year for it to get here again.

  • There is fun in the waiting and preparing. MY MOM actually likes the season of Advent a bit more than Christmas. . But it is nice to see a lot more happy faces. Makes the world more beautiful, just like you do Miss Bunny.

  • This time of year can be so stressful and I already feel myself getting incredibly overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done. Thanks for reminding me about the positive parts and how it is supposed to be about joy and not about checking things off a to-do list!

  • Oh, another Bald Puppy! Sweet! And yes, it’s quite festive here too…but oddly it’s 70 degrees so it’s not as festive as normal…we need some cold!!

  • Congratulations on the precious new little one!!! Soooo adorable! Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness!

  • Congratulations on the new baby. What a great time of year for a new addition – dressing her up for Christmas will be so much fun. And I’m sorry to hear about the dog treat rationing, Bunny. I hope Santa has you on his list and he makes up for whatever other shortcomings this month brings.

  • Awww! that human puppy is adorable!! It is nice to look forward to something all year isn’t it! 🙂

  • Ryker

  • Congratulations on your beautiful newborn human puppy! And how nice that you were able to go shopping. Very nice poses with that shopping bag!

  • Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

    So what’s in the Gap bag – a pretty new scarf for Miss Bunny?

    Maybe you can get Mom to make you some cookies instead of the fancy bakery ones, we bet they might taste even better.

    I am not sure about humans being more cheerful this time of year, I notice the roads get more dangerous as we approach christmas as people are all stressed out trying to buy christmas presents for each other!

  • Beautiful baby and beautiful post! Love those snowflakes!

  • Karen Millar

    It is good to have these special holidays but what makes it just right is that they don’t happen every day and that makes them extra special! Thanks for sharing your day, Bunny!
