That dog

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a Georgie story. This time of year has the usual celebrations and a family birthday besides. We have always celebrated two occasions, never wanting to make a birthday blend with the Christmas festivities. Of course Georgie, the golden retriever, is in the middle of every celebration.


Many of our activities with the grandkids are done on couches and coffee tables or on the floor. Whatever games we play, Georgie is there. Everyone must reach around or over the dog. That dog thinks she’s human. 


Presents were opened as we sat around on the floor and you know who was in the centre. She had a sniff at the packages before they were opened. Georgie knew about the scented candles and the bath bombs long before we did.


Decorating the tree was an experience. Our grandchildren worked at the decorations, reaching in over the dog much of the time to place the decorations on the tree. She wanted to be there with them and they took it for granted that she was.





We thought Georgie would enjoy some of the Christmas headwear but she didn’t look too pleased and quickly had it off her head, running her paw over her head to dislodge it.





This is one tradition she doesn’t enjoy and we won’t make her suffer the indignity again. 


That dog!

Of course she is part of it. You (and she) wouldn't have it any other way.
Jazz too thinks he is human. An underprivileged human.

I can appreciate why Georgie wouldn't like that.

The last picture of Georgie tells it all. "Just leave me alone … and let me be a human!"

Your Georgie is wonderful. I love goldens and Georgie reminds me of my Megan.

Georgie certainly makes a wonderful member of the family. The children must love having her "help" them!

Your header photos is wonderful...wanted to tell that before I say anything else. Georgie is a lucky dog, but I think you guys are lucky to have her, too.

Pets are great! We are a cat household, rather than a dog one, but it's much the same!
