Hello! It’s me!
It’s been a long year … my only year on the planet, but who is counting? And let’s be honest, winter isn’t exactly delighting me. Look at this nonsense.
That’s called gray and rain.
Three months of perpetual mildew took a toll on us. Mom took matters into her own hands … she proudly announced earlier today that we’re off to Arizona on Monday! Woo-hoo!
But Christmas is coming, so let’s not rush the season just yet. Christmas is a time for family and friends. And television. But more on that later. This afternoon, I received the best Christmas Eve present ever … my neighbor Zoey stopped by! Oh the fun we had! We played and urinated and played.
When we weren’t playing, we frolicked.
At this point, I decided to draft behind Zoey …
… and as the winds blew around her, I pulled out to take my position, not unlike a Kyle Larson pass at Talledega.
We waited for Mom to come up the hill … I’m told that the wait is the hardest part.
We waited, of course, for the opportunity to partake in the greatest Christmas tradition of all time. I’ll let you pick the tradition via multiple choice.
- Opening Gifts.
- Ample Worship of the Anniversary of the Birth of our Lord and Savior.
- Watching Twenty-Four Consecutive Hours of A Christmas Story on TBS.
Yes, the answer is (3) … and I don’t know how this turns out, but if I were Ralphie, I’d be careful. He could shoot his eye out if he gets what he wants for Christmas!
Meanwhile, my afternoon play session with Zoey wore me out. I rest now, saving energy for our big trip to Arizona!
Merry Christmas to Dash and all the Hillstrom family! I was thinking of you last week when I returned to Appleton! Brrrr….very cold! (at least our plane didn’t skid off the tarmac!
Appleton is lovely in December!
Merry Christmas Dash!!! (And Merry Christmas to Ma Dash and Pa Dash, too!) 😊🎄
‘Round about now the thought of some Arizona sun and warmth sounds mighty good Dash! Travel safely and enjoy!
As a well-traveled pup, I’ve been to Arizona, so no big deal for me!
Can’t wait to see you in Arizona. A State full of wonderful sights and legends. Be watchful on your drive down so that no chupacabras waylay y’all. Oh, when you get here, there are kokopellis, Gila Monsters, lizards, mountain lions, coyotes not to even mention ROADRUNNERS” . So beware of what might sneak up on you while you’re exploring the desert.
And by the way if you hear a Ho-Ho-Ho tonight, that’s Santa bringing toys for good little Doxies.
Better not have the fireplace aflame.
See You soon.
Tell Grandma I’m looking forward to napping in her lap!
We watched “Scrooged” Now there’s a dumb Christmas movie. Happy Holidays to Dash and his whole family!
Dash here – we are watching Scrooged as we speak!
Merry Christmas! Woke up to 28 degrees–yikes! I really want to go with you to Arizona and enjoy the warmth. Be good and send a picture of you and dad and mom in the golf cart. Enjoy! Auntie Janet ( thanks for the Christmas Card)
Hope you had an awesome Christmas little bro. Mom has been so busy, my blog details are sadly lacking. Have fun in Arizona.
