I had a Christmas Eve adventure – well, a Christmas Eve eve adventure, last night. Anyone out there remember this cute pup I babysat for a friend? Clara is a Lab/Heeler mix. She was a puppy in this photo, with plenty of white on her back and sides. She and Chewy played hard together.
She was only four months old in this photo. Last night Clara’s parents, who live half an hour away, had come to town to Christmas shop. They had all three kids in tow (two teen boys and a first grade son), and their timing belt in the car snapped. Great timing, huh? Ooooo – bad pun. Sorry. So I had the privilege of being the first person to answer the phone when they called looking for a ride home. There were six of us in my Prius. That, in and of itself, was a Christmas miracle. And a Christmas Eve adventure. Take a look at the pretty Miss Clara now.
If you’re FaceCrack friends with me, you know that I post photos of dogs who’ve been lost, found, or in need of adoption, several times a day. My friend, Clara’s mother, saw a puppy photo I posted, a little girl in need of adoption, and went, that day, and adopted the pup. She’s a tiny black thing that they named Zoe, only seven weeks old a month ago. Unfortunately, I could only get fuzzy photos, since Zoe was uber excited about the Beef Liver Taffy I keep in my purse. Say hi to Zoe, internets.
The two pups couldn’t be in a better home. They have three boys to play with, as well as three cats to badger. There’s a huge fenced yard to run and cavort in. They’re loving life. And last night they discovered Jones Natural Chews.
The two happiest dogs in the world – this was a great Christmas Eve adventure for all of us. And it was great to catch up with old friends along the way.
Now! Have you entered the Rabbit Entree’ Jerky giveaway? Jones Natural Chews is giving away a bag of yummy jerky to one lucky dog! Click on this sentence to be taken to the giveaway post! The treats are, as always, 100% all natural (and just three ingredients), and 100% grown and made in the USA. They snap easily into small pieces, making them great for training puppies and large dogs alike, and they’ll last a long time if you snap them. I don’t like giving entire sticks to dogs. They honestly don’t know the difference. And I can give them lots of small pieces, equalling a stick worth, and they think I’m the most generous person on earth. Devious, that’s me.
There are three morals to this story:
- Post lost and found dog photos when you see them, locally – you never know when you’ll help make a love connection
- Answer the phone for friends in need and you’ll have adventures!
- Always keep a bag of Jones Natural Chews on your person – you never know when they’ll come in handy
Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
Until I write again …
