Christmas Stress

by Houndstooth on
Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about a few things on my mind.

I am starting to get a little concerned about the state of Christmas at our house.  My humans still have not procured a proper Christmas tree.  It seems there are some problems with the Princessmobile and the only available mode of conveyance at the moment is Dad’s hoop dee.  This is not going to get us to the tree farm to bring home a tree to decorate.  I’m worried that there may not be one this year.  Saturday the humans were busy with training for Küster and merrymaking with the SAR team.  Sunday they were shopping for things besides a tree and we dogs were all left at home because it was cold and snowy out.  I thought it made the perfect setting for getting a tree, but apparently not.  I hope they don’t expect me to go out and gnaw one down from a neighbor’s house, because that’s not happening, although I suspect Flattery could be persuaded.

It has also gotten cold here, and we had snow this weekend.

Dad thinks he can sneak Flattery and me outside and my human won’t know that he didn’t put our tummy warmers on, but he is wrong.  Just to be sure, Flattery let her know by holding her feet up and stuck my cold ears in her hand.  She assures me that this situation will be rectified, but I know how it goes.  It did bring an air of festivity to the place, though, even if it did make our toes cold.

I have my paws crossed that Christmas will not go to the dogs.

Flattery and Morgan have both been up to more mischief than usual and our resident elf is back.  I’m not sure that elf is a good influence on Flattery.  Flattery keeps telling me about things the elf tries to get her to do, but the elf doesn’t talk to any of the rest of us.  I find this highly suspicious.  I’m not sure who is up to no good here, but I don’t want us to get a black mark upon our good family name by having part of our pack on the Naughty List.

Somebody tell me how to find some holiday serenity.

I am hoping to just have some quite times curled up with my human more than anything else.  The hustle and bustle of the holidays is a human thing.  We canines don’t need the stress, as a matter of fact, our job is to help reduce stress in the humans we love.  It certainly seems like I’m going to have my work cut out for me this year.  The struggle with Christmas stress is real.  How do humans do it year after year?

    Bunny, Whenever your dad takes you outside without your warm coats, you need to stick your very cold noses somewhere the sun don’t shine. This is best done when your dad isn’t wearing much;)

    Hope you get the tree soon.

    You all take care. Sue, Polly & Honey

    LOL! Good blog Bunny! Maybe dad wanted you to hurry up and do your business so you would go back in a hurry…just saying or maybe he thought you had to potty so bad and didn’t want to you to wait to get the tummy warmers on…but he could of put the tummy warmers on when you got back in to warm you up or a nice warm blanket from the dryer to snuggle in. Have a good week. Hope the princessmobile will be fixed so you can get a tree!

    Hope you get your tree soon. We have a tree up but our humans have not finished putting decorations on it yet. We are not sure what the deal is. But Mommy has not been feeling well and has not been running around like crazy this year so we are enjoying more couch cuddles with her.

    By the looks of you Bunny the only that is stressing is mom

    You look lovely as usual! Sometimes it takes me a few weeks into December to get into the spirit. Rob likes to get the directions up in November, and I just wasn’t ready this year. I’m starting to feel it now…
