    Default Taking the dog Christmas shopping



    I'm helping my dog, Maggie, with her Christmas shopping today. You understand that she is a very smart and loving dog, she just lacks computer skills, money, and opposable thumbs. I think she really wants to get me a new eyepiece for Christmas. I just can't bare the thoughts of leaving her out of the festivities. I guess, I'll help her out with the purchasing arangements and wrapping.

    What a generous dog Maggie is! Lily never gets me anything. The cats sometimes go in together and help me pick out new ornaments to replace the ones they knocked off the tree.

    Yes, Mary, I understand completely. I have two cats. Both were initially outdoor barn cats, but with age, both have retired into the house. Old they may be, but they still love a Christmas tree.

    Nice! Hopefully Maggie knows her stuff on eyepieces.

    You'll have to dedicate some time with Canis Major on her behalf this winter.
