Our Little Family

three heads - small (1)

It’s only March, but I think I’ve landed on our Christmas card for this year.

I also considered this one…

But that would leave out Trooper, which wouldn’t accurately reflect the significant role he plays in our family.

He’s my buddy. When I run errands, he rides shotgun. (Weather permitting.) When I eat, he gets a scrap or two. When I water the plants or refill the bird feeder, he stands guard in the yard. The yard is his domain. No creature enters the yard without first seeking his approval. No squirrel can dare consider setting a toe in our yard. No pecan can lie in peace, they all must be chewed. Every plant must be sniffed and tinkled on.

Of the three subjects in the photo below,

  • Two are very hairy.
  • Two are very loud.
  • Only one is obedient.
  • One has a best friend named Mabel.
  • Two have short legs.
  • One likes cats.
  • One is a neighborhood celebrity.
  • One has been on the nightly news.

Do you know which is which?

I’ll give you a hint: neither Brandon nor I have been on the nightly news.

A very early Merry Christmas everybody, from our little family.

      As much as I would have loved to bring him on our camping trip, I don’t think he would have enjoyed himself. 🙂
