As we are nearing ever closer to Christmas day, I thought that I would present to you the 12 days of Christmas Frantastic™ style. Each day I will share a thought about the season and a quote that I hope will stick with you at least, if nothing else, until the next day. This will be like Forrest Gump of the Blog World....you never know what you're gonna get.
Day 1 is about the 4 legged creatures. It's about the dogs who race to the door when they hear you coming home. The ones who curl up on your lap even though (like mine) they are WAY too big to curl up on your lap. Those who defend your property or livestock from intruders both human and predatory. The cats who couldn't care less if you pet them right now, but in 20 minutes circle you looking for attention. The same cats who find the one spot on the bed that has clothing neatly piled to sleep on, instead of the remaining 98% of the bed, that has nothing on it! Those who purr so contently just because you are now in the room.
It is not just for the standard pets, but also for the others. Gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, goats all the pets out there...heck, even the finned fishy or the lizardy ones. Any companion creature that brings you joy and comfort is a gift to your life and should be treated like one.
Today is for all the pets that bring more joy to our day than we can even imagine.
"As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is." ~Eric Sevareid
Until next time.
