I knew something was up when they locked me in the kitchen. I could hear laughter and excitement in the living room and waited patiently till I could come in and join them.
And when I was allowed in the room, I saw the most beautiful sight I have ever seen in the whole of my doggy life. I think this is what humans would call love at first sight…
I tried to be cool, nonchalant even. I didn’t want them to know how I felt. But my heart was pounding so hard every time I passed it and breathed in its lovely pine-tree smell.
So I wanted to do something special, or wear something “nice” that would impress that beautiful sight. I remembered my little human kindly gave me one of her wooly hats that had a hole in it. So I put it on, but I think I tugged on it too hard and my head went through it.
“Oh no!” I ruined it and struggled to get the blimming thing off my head till I heard my humans say – “Look, Doc has is wearing a winter scarf. How lovely!”
And so I was pleased with myself and thought, this will have to do. Surely, the lovely tree will be impressed. Now all I had to do was wait for that golden opportunity when I was alone with my beloved.
Then it happened, my human and her mum were having lunch in the kitchen. I crept silently in the room and admired her from afar. And when I gathered the courage to come up close to her to declare my undying love and devotion … I got distracted by the many different lovely looking things hanging all over the love of my life. Her accessories were enchanting!
“Well hello, there” I began … but got distracted again by the different colours and before I knew what I was doing, my mouth opened and I ate one.
It was crunchy.
Crunch, crunch, crunch.
And before I could stop myself, I grabbed another one from the tree.
It was crunchy.
crunch, crunch, crunch.
And before I could get another one in my mouth I heard a very loud and cross voice – Doc!!! It was my human’s mum and before I could even apologise to my sweetheart, I was banished from the living room.
They won’t let me near my love anymore.
I don’t think I’m going to have a Merry Christmas after all.
Do you think my darling will forgive me for eating one of her accessories?
