Seasons Greetings to you!
It might be a bit funny to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays with a silly Santa Puggy, but I just could not resist showing you all this picture of Oliver.
Isn’t Oliver just the most adorable Santa that you’ve seen this year??! Do you see his little red Santa hat and his little red coat?
Okay, so maybe Oliver is a bit grumpy looking like Santa, but he’s still adorable.
Hmmmm… I wonder why, oh why, sweet little Ollie Ollie Ollie Boy is looking so grouchy.
Maybe Oliver is grumpy because the holidays are nearly over. Oliver, do you like Christmas?
Maybe Oliver is grumpy because he hasn’t been having a good time this holiday season. Oliver, are you having any fun?
Maybe Oliver is grumpy because he wanted red boots to match his outfit. Oliver, are you missing something?
Maybe Oliver is grumpy because he wants to be running around in the warm sunshine instead of being wrapped up for blustery cold snowstorms.
Oliver, where do you want to be for the holidays?
Maybe Oliver is grumpy because he is sitting by himself. Oliver, do you have any friends to play with today?
Maybe Oliver understands that the holidays are difficult for a lot of people, and maybe he is making a compassionate, empathetic statement for those of you that have struggled through the holidays this year. Oliver, do you know how painful the holidays can be?
Oh Oliver, I wish you could have the very best of days, even if you do feel a little bit grouchy. You are a beautiful little puggy, a precious friend, and oh so very dear to me.
I will always love you, Oliver.
Thank you, kids, for stopping by to see Oliver today. I am sure he is glad that you came to visit with him.
And, may I ask…. how are your holidays?
