14 DECEMBER 2007
I filled the dogs' Christmas stocking today. I admit, it's as much for my amusement as theirs. The stocking is fashioned after "The Dog" style of photos, topped with a dog head with a big nose and little eyes, and, appropriately, it's a Cavalier. Gracie and Wally saw me stuff it, so they keep returning to it to sniff. Last year, Gracie (Wally wasn't around then) kept barking at it. We'll see if Wally can resist it this year, or whether he can refrain from nibbling on the Christmas tree. I've gone fake again, with the narrow tree I bought last year. It's quite pretty, actually, though I miss the sweet scent of fir and the sticky sap on my fingers. And the falling needles and the fire hazard. Well, maybe not all that.
