I’m taking over my upright's holiday newsletter. She would have written a sappy one, so I just couldn’t allow that.
Reflecting upon last year makes my fur puff out. And just so you know, I’m fluffy, not chubby!!! I’ve been a very good girl. I’ve performed hundreds of programs for seniors and children at Assisted living and Memory Care facilities, libraries and preschools. I learned several new tricks this year such as walking backward and showing how embarrassed I am by Joey, our new puppy. I was special, but no more! Now, Joey follows us everywhere and performs with me. He steals the show! I’ve tried losing him, but he always comes when he’s called. I’ve tried ignoring him, but he steals my toys, plays with my blankie, and snuggles with my upright.
However, Joey does get into trouble, such as when he tried to pee on the toilet. Denise had just used the restroom when Joey ran in there. He lifted his leg and peed all over the toilet. He thought dogs should use it! Sometimes, he becomes so excited that he jumps all over everyone. Denise claims she’s trying to teach him not to do that, but she’s failing. I’ve stepped in as his trainer and nanny. I tell him what to do and when. If he’s playing tug of war with Craig Dayberry and growls, I make them stop playing. I tell Joey that he’s not allowed to growl at an upright. If he jumps on people, I smack him with my paw. I’ve started to enjoy being his nanny and trainer. Maybe we should get another puppy to train—NOT! It kills me to admit this, but Joey has learned a lot of tricks and is sweet to our audience. Remember, he may look like a little angel, but he’s really a little devil.
Denise is still dating Craig. Craig enjoys playing with Joey and holding him on his lap. Ugh! I would never do that; I only like my upright.
If you happen to see Santa, please let him know that all I want for Christmas are treats. Lots and lots of treats. Joey wants coal (not really, but that would be the perfect gift for him)! Ha, Ha!
May you receive a good bone in your stocking!
Sienna, the perfect diva…
and those others, such as Denise and Joey…
