Christmas used to be one of my favorite times of the year. I don’t care about gifts (I can get my own gifts) or hanging out with family (I’ve always been a loner); what excites me are the children.
Strange since I’m not a kid person, but the best part about the holidays is the look of awe and wonder on the face of kids at the mall (on the rare occasions I’ll brave the mall).
But this year, I’m just not feeling it. The only think I’m looking forward to this holiday season is the end of this crappy year!
It’s a good think I’m in therapy or else I would be in a closet, rocking back and forth chanting “blogging sucks” over and over again.
I told J that I was cancelling Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. How could I celebrate when I feel so crappy?
But then an Amazon.com package arrived with 4 boxes of the Cloud Star Holiday Buddy Biscuits - my friend reminded me about them, so I ordered a few – I smiled a little. And seeing the dogs immediately plant their butts on the floor in a polite, and impatient, sit made me smile a lot.
A few days later, another box arrived from Cloud Star!!! These were a gift that gave me another reason to smile and we’re now stocked up for the holidays.
It was raining Holiday Buddy Biscuits at our house! Our dogs believe that every package that arrives at our house is for them and Cloud Star helped cement that belief.
And a new holiday tradition was created.
Cloud Star is one of a handful of brands who make healthy dog treats I trust and I feel comfortable feeding to our dogs.
We divvy them out in moderation, but that doesn’t stop the littermates from sitting in front of the Treat Counter whenever they do something – potty, a cute look, a head on the lap, a shake…
Yep, they’re adorable.
The other day I told Sydney that she’s my favorite Pretty Pretty Princess and she got up, wagged her tail and then wiggled her butt over to the Treat Counter. Thanks Cloud Star!
Do you have a holiday tradition with your dogs?
