A little Christmas Eve story with Happy Holiday Wishes

Arthur stands at the window all day and watches.  He looks up.

He looks down. What is he looking at?

Oh my. Arthur sees a squirrel up on the chair. The squirrel is trying to jump to the bird feeder.

The squirrel gives up and goes for the easy pickings.

Arthur barks at the squirrel.

The squirrel doesn’t care. The squirrel only worries when I say to Arthur, “Do you want to get the squirrel?” and Arthur turns and dashes  from the room. He runs around the banister in the hall, taking the curves on three-legs. He runs to the door and gets into a stance to sprint. When I open it, he dashes out the door straight for the squirrel. The squirrel is halfway across the driveway or up a tree by the time Arthur makes it across the porch.

It’s no wonder Arthur barks at those pesky squirrels.

Who invade his territory.

Arrogantly tease him.

And then run away.

But Arthur doesn’t worry. He’ll be right back here at the window tomorrow. Doing his job.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it with us. And happy winter holidays, however you celebrate them, from the squirrel-chasing, bird-defending little white dog and me.

I enjoy reading, writing, gardening, photography, genealogy and travel. I have opinions about many things, but am trying to age gracefully and not continually tick people off with them. Sometimes I can’t help myself.

  1. Oh the squirrel really doesn’t care at all! Just keeps eating and ignoring LOL. Arthur is an adorable dog, very photogenic too 🙂
    Merry Christmas Christine, and all the best for 2012 *hugs*

  2. Delightful post, Christine. Tigger is the same . . . affronted by the birds who perch on our deck railings. But Tigger never, ever, ever BARKS. 😉

    May your days be Merry and Bright . . . and your nights be filled with Love, Laughter, and Light!

  3. Authur is darling! Reminds me a bit of my Lucy.

    Good news, by the way. My big note managed to remind me, so that last night I downloaded you book onto my Kindle. I’m still reading another at the moment, but I’m looking forward to starting yours!

    Happy Holidays, Christine!

    1. When I saw your photo of Lucy I felt the same. Thanks for getting your copy of Dancing in Heaven. I hope you like it. It would be a tremendous help to me if you could take the time to review it on Amazon and B&N after you read it. Just a couple sentences will do.

      Happy New Year!

  4. I think Arthur takes after his mom…you. Real sweethearts, both. I know I’ve told you that I like your picture. Have to say it again…love it…love your smile.

    hugs for the holidays…and beyond…hugmamma. 🙂
