Dog Owner Gets Scrooge-Y Around Holiday Time

My mom Cathy has a secret. Well, it’s not exactly a secret since she showed me clippings of published articles in newspapers, proudly presenting her views on holidays. She hates them. You can read her article here.

Cathy especially hates Thanksgiving. “Long dinners with small talk with people I barely know. A feast of food, mostly not healthy. Who needs this?” she asks. “Gracie, I could just take you to the dog park for an extra run.”

I like that idea.

Of course, as a dog, I enjoy going visiting. I love meeting new people. Everyone makes a fuss over me. Usually I can persuade a kind soul to slip me some turkey when my mom isn’t looking. (Don’t ask me what else they feed me. My mom would have a heart attack.)

What are you doing for the holidays?
