Holiday Dog Date

We haven’t yet begun decorating our house for the holidays. But last Saturday, Scooby and I went on a tree-decorating date.

We didn’t tell Luke the date was with his sweetheart, former foster dog Minnie.

He doesn’t like it when others move in on his girl.

She still loves belly rubs.

Minnie was happy to see her old friend Scooby, even though he leaked on the rug within five minutes of arriving.

He didn’t seem as embarrassed as I did 10 minutes later when I knocked over a wine glass. (For the record, it was my first glass of the evening.)

Can’t promise it won’t happen again.

Lucky for us both, Minnie and her mama Holly are laid back, easygoing folks. They had recently entertained another canine houseguest – Minnie’s new cousin dog, a one-eyed Great Dane puppy named Baby.

I had a great time helping Holly decide where to put all of the pretty birds and other creature ornaments she bought for her tree.

In the end, the tree looked great, especially with the dogs in front of it.

What kind of holiday preparations happen at your house?

Do not actually give a dog egg nog.

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.

  1. What a great date – we’re sure they can get their own back when they come to help you with your tree!

  2. Reblogged this on dogdaz and commented:
    Looks great, but no eggnog here.

  3. I have some quandries about a tree and Grady, not knowing how he will cope with it being blind. I just don’t want it…er, watered.
