12 Days of Christmas-Two Turtle Dogs
Our family has had an extra great week with a visiting dog cousin, "Happy". She has been such a fun addition to our family. The kids have had fantastic adventures taking care of another dog. It has been a good experiment to see what it would be like at our house with two dogs. Since our dog, "Sandy" is 14, she cannot hear so well, so her cousin has been hearing things for her. The wonderful barking of two happy dogs! Sandy is rejuvenated by having her younger cousin, who is 11, around to get into trouble with her. How does the song go? Two turtle dogs and a partridge in a pear tree?
Christmas time and two dogs, what more could a kid ask for, all the excitement and the sheer joy! Well, the trial run has gone very well, and the kids are very sad about "Happy" leaving at the end of the weekend. What a great part of the 12 days of Christmas!
