A Mostly True Christmas Story

Please bring me a box of Milk Bones, a rabbit-proof fence for the yard, and a new toy...

Naughty list? Dad's gloves? You heard about that?

I'm getting nothing for Christmas.

I didn’t know there was a naughty list.

What if I find new gloves for Dad? See? I found these in the closet...

So they said if I'm really good between now and Christmas, I might get back onto the nice list. I'm trying, but it's hard. Mom and Dad leave stuff everywhere, and sometimes I get nervous when I'm alone, then I need to chew on something. You understand, don't you?

If it weren't so cold, I'd stay outside until Christmas. I never get in trouble out here.

And then what happened? Rudolph, did you stop for the Misfit Toys?

Can I get back on the nice list now? It’s Christmas Eve, and I promise that I’ve been really, really good!

    Adorable, Rae! There’s another children’s book!

    This is so cute! I love the one in the crate – “I didn’t know there was a naughty list.” The look on the face is so contrite.

      She’s always very subdued after she destroys something.

        Guess she got whatever it was out of her system. I just know she’ll be a good girl from now until Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

          Thank you! (I have to confess that this all happened a few years ago. For 2012, she got creative and found unique new ways to make the naughty list…) 🙂

      Thank you! These photos were a lot of fun, and I’m delighted to be able to share them!

    Wonderfully fun, and reminded me of my kitties … they do try to be good but we leave so many temptations around … especially at Christmas … and then of course, while we sleep or are out …

    Hope your holidays were wonderful, Rae!

      We had a great holiday this year! Hope you did, too!
