Christmas With Furry Kids

Posted on December 13, 2009. Filed under: 1. Daily Life | Tags: , , |

Yes, it’s true. This holiday season my husband and I loaded up the “furry kids,” Indy and Lola and took them to see Santa. Are we crazy? No, we’re just enjoying the holidays like any family, expect our “kids” are furry and four legged. Actually, the Santa we went to see was especially for pets, at PETCO. So having just decorated the tree, and feeling festive, we decided it would be fun and maybe worthy of our Christmas card photo this year. (My husband would like to add a disclaimer that sometimes he thinks my pet loving tendencies are a little extreme.)

Let’s just say, Indy and Lola were not impressed with Santa, who appeared to be no more than 17-years old. We bought the furry kids some fun holiday hats and encouraged them to sit on Santa’s lap. They were not too sure about the kid in the funny red suit. So we do what furry parents do, we jumped into the photo too. Okay, so it may not be Christmas card worthy, but it will definitely be one of our holiday mementos.
Back at home, Indy and Lola each have a stocking hanging right next to ours.
Christmas Eve I’ll fill it with various goodies. On Christmas morning, the furry kids seem to know something is different, as we hang out on the couch, open gifts and shower them with biscuits and squeaky toys. Hopefully, they will get what they wished for from Santa.    -Nina Jimenez
