Rumpy’s Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

I have been a good dog.

For the most part.

I hope I made the Nice Dog list!!!!

There is still that issue with my scarfing down cat food every chance I get.

And I do like the occasional rummage through the trash.

Oh, and there is that time I left skid marks on Jen’s freshly-laundered bedding.

Hardly worth mentioning, I know, but I am choosing transparency in all my dealings… that Jen knows about.

June Buggie says I made your Naughty list this year, but I’m pretty sure I should be on the Nice one. And since I am a positive thinker, I’ll assume I’m right.

What does a dog like me want for Christmas?

See? I play well with others. Nice!!!!

I’m glad you asked!

I want to move. I know, we move too much already, but at this house we don’t have a fenced yard, and baby I was born to run! So could you please make it so Number 1?

I want my own room with a door the cats can’t access.  Sometimes I need a break from them, ya know?

I want a brother or sister. I’m tired of being the only dog, but Jen says no more animals. But if you left a dog under the tree, how could she say no? If you do go that route, better bring a tree too, cuz we don’t have one.

I want a dinosaur! That would be the coolest pet ever! And I bet that creepy neighbor wouldn’t be watching Jen when she was outside walking him.

I want a new vehicle to ride in. The Jenmobile rides too rough for my delicate derriere.

I need a new tablet so I can keep up on social media when Jen has her phone at work. I would use her laptop but I don’t know the password.

Oh yeah, the most important thing: I need a refill on my cookie stash!!! Do you make cat food flavored cookies?

Thank you for your time, Big Guy, and I hope to see you this weekend!

Much love,



While visions of sugar plums…

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. I really don’t see a problem with scarfing down unattended cat food. It also pays to check the trash – the bipeds have been known to chuck treasures in there!

    I’m sure you’re on the nice list, Rumpy.

  7. Dear Rumpy, your wish list is nice, and I hope you will get all you have wished, because you are a good dog. If do something what every dog does, eating cats food, it is only a dog thing, nothing bad.
    We wish you and your family Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
