Mom took a picture of dad and me while he was scratching my neck:

gigadog_elfDad was just placating me.  You know why?  Mom is making me wear this ARFul costume next weekend.  Mom says that I’ll love it because we’re going for a long walk.  Yeah…a long walk, where people won’t see beautiful me, they’ll see beautiful me all covered up and looking like an elf.  

Also, it’s supposed to be -5ºF that morning.  That’s cold, even for a fluffy pup like me.  I have no idea what mom is going to do without a beautiful fur coat like mine.

She says it’s for a good cause, though.  Something about ARFritis.  If you can please donate, it might almost make it worth it to go out in public, especially in the cold, and both mom and I would be very happy.  (Although, let’s face it.  I’m a dog, so I’m pretty much happy all the time.)  It certainly would make it worthwhile to look so silly and undignified.

You can help by donating here.

Thank you!

I was buying some items at Barnes and Noble today when the cashier asked if I wanted to buy a book to donate.  I picked a Lego book of some sort, and the cashier handed me a card and asked me to fill in the “From” line.  I contemplated a second, and he said, “You can just write in Santa if you like.”

That didn’t feel quite right, so I wrote in, “Santa and Mrs. Claus.”  (Does Mrs. Claus have a first name?  I feel horrible for not knowing.)

The cashier looked and smiled.  “Hmm…no one has written that before.  But you know, that makes sense.  She’s probably the brains of the operation, planning everything out.  She should get some credit, too.”

Indeed, she should.   But I imagine the elves are going to complain that they were left out…or the reindeer.
