Here in Kentucky we knew in advance we’d be getting a white Christmas. The chance of snow Christmas Eve into Christmas Day was 100%. So we did our travelling early. We went to Lexington for a few hours early Christmas Eve, and I think my mom and step-dad were pretty happy with their gift, a canvas portrait of their dog, Winnie. And if ever there was a diva dog that deserved a portrait Winnie is it!
The star of our Christmas celebrations, though, has been Boss, our new dog. He’s a two-year-old Chesapeake Bay Retriever – Lab mix, a rescue dog we brought home a week before Christmas.
He’s the most affectionate dog I’ve ever met, wants nothing more than to be loved. Fortunately, he even worked his charm on Sam.
I think Boss was pretty thrilled to get a home for Christmas, and I know we were glad to add him to the family. And next weekend he gets to meet the rest of the family, because our Christmas celebrations are only half over!
