Scout's Christmas

Scout had a good Christmas this year, I think.

She didn't try to drink the water under the tree, or eat any of the Christmas presents. She did have to stay by herself for awhile on Christmas Eve. but he didn't have to stay in a room by herself while the people came on Christmas Day, like she did when she was a puppy. She was possessive then, and kept stealing things and growling at people. She made friends with my neice, who at first said what she always says, "I don't like big dogs," but by the end of the day said, "I guess she's all right." Scout got a little bit of turkey (just one bite), she got a Scarf from grandma and grandpa, she got a new squeaky toy and a new bed. And she got 1/2 of a small piece of pumpkin pie (that was a mistake.)


She also gave me a present (it is more blessed to give than to receive, you know). She gave me the book Angel Dogs.

For our part, we had a pretty good Christmas too. We are glad she is part of our lives.

Smokey sends Christmas greetings to Scout. He found three new hard rubber toys in his stocking. (He disembowels squeaky toys and stuffed toys.) He also got two or three bites of chicken, which he enjoyed very much. Smokey says he thinks that maybe he wouldn't be as scared of Scout as he is of most big dogs.

So, Scout snagged some pumpkin pie did she? Just the thought of her makes me feel happy. Merry Christmas to you all.

As long as I'm here I thought I'd scroll down and see the pictures again. She's such a doll.
