Aside from being forced to pose in humiliating holiday costumes, our dogs have it pretty good.
They’re loved. They’re probably getting a present or two. And they have a warm bed (probably ours) to crawl into at night.
Thinking of those who aren’t as lucky
It made me wonder what other dogs I’ve come to know in Blogville would wish homeless dogs could have.
From our houses…
In no particular order…
Frankie over at Will My Dog Hate Me wishes every dog’s person would recognize him as a special guy and not want him to be anything he isn’t.
Ty and Buster of Go Pet Friendly blog wish every family that makes big changes in their lives would remember to include the dogs in their plans.
Jasper, Daisy, and Lady from No Dog About It wish every dog had a person who would never give up on her.
Georgia Little Pea Ratatouille from Little Dogs on Long Leashes wants every dog to live with a person who, even when she’s kidding around, lets her love for her dog come shining through. Oh, and a bite of cream cake would be nice too.
Frankie and Beryl over at Greyhounds Can Sit wish every dog had a home with someone who finds great places for them to have fun.
Kolchak and Felix over at Kol’s Notes wish that every dog could count on getting delicious and nutritious food that would keep him healthy and strong.
Kenzo and Viva from Kenzo the Hovawart wish every dog had a home with a person who understands how good it is to use your nose.
Cleo over at Cleo’s Day wishes older dogs would find people who recognize their special beauty.
Lilly and Ginko from Champion of My Heart wish every dog had a person who recognizes that when times are difficult you can always find comfort in the friendship of your dogs.
Chick from Love and a Six Foot Leash wishes every pibble would find good homes so he could have the full attention of his people once again. Just kidding. Chick really wishes every dog could find people who discover his inner awesomeness without judging by appearances first.
Honey’s telling me I better stop here. I could still be going next Christmas eve.
So if I missed your dog, what would he wish other homeless dogs could have for Christmas? Please share his wishes in the comments.
Whether you spend December 25 reveling in consumerism, meditating on the birth of Jesus, or eating Chinese food I wish you a time of joy and peace.
