Dog Blog , Woof, woof to you all
woof, oh dear – perhaps you can help me. I am looking for an
nice present for my human Dad.
I made a mistake and need to make it up
It all started one morning when I spotted his hearing aids on the top of his
bedside table. They are usually in a box. This time they were
out in the
open, although put right at the back behind lots of other things like books
and clock etc. I thought it would be a really
helpful thing to take them into
Dad in the bathroom, so that he could
put them in his ears. So, I reached
behind everything and picked them up. They did get a little bit nibbled an
d wet on the way. And
when Dad got them he was quite upset, as they
didn’t work. Now I need a really good present to say sorry.
I seem to get in a pickle all the time. Take this morning, there I am saying
good morning to Mum (who was still in bed) and didn’t
realize that my
wagging tail had swished her alarm clock off the
table (again!) My tail
gets me into all sorts of trouble. It’s seems to have a life of its own,
accidently whacking Suki dog in the
face, knocking over pot plants
and hitting the furniture like a drum.
“Oh no Buddy!” is what I hear all the
All through the day, I have been in trouble for playing- first a ball of wool,
then a shoe, then an inner sole, a pair of scissors, a plastic
bag, a scarf
and a rucksack. It all seemed good fun to me, but each time I get, “Buddy,
drop”. I’m in the dog house again. So, any ideas for a present for my Dad,
especially as now he can’t hear?
is looking for a present for him too. I wondered what she
wrong, but she said it was for Christmas, a present to
celebrate the birth of
Jesus.” Presents just for my Dad”, I
woofed?” No”, said Mum, “Presents
for everyone we love as a way of saying “Thank you” for all gifts of love
, light, hope and forgiveness which Jesus brought into the world”. And you
can’t get bigger better presents than these.
maybe I don’t need to find a present for Dad after all. Instead I
am going to give Dad a big slobbery Buddy kiss every time I mess up - so
that he knows that I am sorry and woof in his ear
so that he can hear how
much I love him. And for Christmas I will double the slobber and the woof,
just to make sure he gets the message!
Happy Christmas and lots of woofsss, Buddy one of the vicarage dogs.
