What is Christmas? the Terriers

When asked the of the Meaning of Christmas, the Terriers replied:

LACIE: "Well, I mean Christmas is pressies, and totally glittery lights and shopping on crowded city sidewalks and kissin' boyz under the mistletoe and did I say shopping???"
STANLEY: "I think Christmas is about snugglin' with my family watchin' football and walking at the park and hoping that someone drops a hooge chunk of that ham I see sittin' on the counter."
SCRUFFY: "Lacie and Stanley....Christmas is sorta about pressies and shopping and scoring ham, but I think it's like this... you know that feelin' ya get when the hoomans come home? That's JOY. And how our house feels when Lacie finally stops shrieking? That's PEACE. And when the hooman looks in our eyes and we give 'em a slurp? That's LOVE.
And you know how ya feel when when Mumsie looks at our leashes hangin' on the wall...well, Stan and Lacie...that's HOPE.
And that's what Christmas is all about!"

Merry Christmas, Everybody!! WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Scruffy, Lacie and Stan

Scruffman, you are so wise for sure. Now, about those holiday "hats." Momma says you are all totally adorable smoochie (yes, even the beast), but I say you look kind of foolish (especially Stanny).

Hey! Have a good holiday, OK? And I am NOT marrying that Lacie creature regardless of what she might think.


Gus said...

Scruff did it again.. you helped me understand hoomans.

Thank you and Happy Christmas

Easily I agree but I contemplate the brief should have more info then it has.

I must agree with Eric - one does not expect such profound thinking from three dogs who look like the sisters in a canine production of Fiddler on the Roof.

Well said, Scruffy!

Hope all your Christmas dreams came true!

Your pal,

Hi, everyone -

We are so sorry that we have not visited in a loooooooooong time. Mama has been so busy with school and work so she is making up for some lost time.

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
