My dog just joined the war on christmas
Wife spent an hour this morning setting up her little manger scene on a table in the family room. Just when she got it done the dog walked in and with one wag of his ginormous tail totally sent it back to the stone age. Baby jesus, mary, joseph, shepherds, sheep, wise men and camels went flying ass over tin cup in every direction. She said some very un christmassy things as she shoved the poor dog out the door. Good thing she didn't see me trying to keep a straight face.

She has pretty much determined that the Catholicism of our childhood was mostly bullshit but she is still attracted to some of the nostalgic symbolism of christmas. And I must admit, so am I.

But it still was funnier than hell watching that dog trash that creche thingy.

1. Dobson and his Focus on the Family cabal probably have the
dogcatcher on the horn right now ready to take your pooch down to the local pound where he will be forced to sit in a cage and listen to Bill O'Reilly and The 700 Club broadcasts 24/7.

2. Doggy Decoration Attempts are frequently Disastrous!
LOL

I'd take a hug from the doggy over all the holiday paraphernalia any day. Zest for life and all that, after all... ;)

3. Years ago, my pet ferret would not leave the Baby Jesus alone
in our Nativity scene. He carried him all around the house.

4. I'll never forget the year the cat took a flying leap at a Christmas tree ornament.
and knocked the whole tree over.

Now that I'm a crusty old hermit I thumbtack a picture of Christmas tree to the living room wall.
