A few years back my mom told my brother and I that she hoped we would soon be able to give her the joy of once again hearing the pitter-patter of little feet in her house on Christmas. I’m not sure this is what she had in mind:
“Hey Grandma! We hear you have treats!”
My brother, James, and his dog, Dutch, came up from DC over the weekend to reunite the entire two and four-legged family. Dutch is the elder statesman – a nine year old German Shorthaired Pointer who we like to call George Clooney on account of his increasingly gray fur. The three have had a blast romping around the house together.
After a good romp the three enjoyed some appetizers
And at the end of the day they join us in front of the fire
For man and dog, it’s good to have the whole family/pack back together! Wherever you are and whatever you celebrate, I hope you travel safe and enjoy some time off around the holidays. Don’t forget to give your pet a few extra treats for us!
