Ani’s Advent 2020! – Pondering

Dear Santa, I’m a little dog who doesn’t do religion. I’d rather chase a tennis ball or terrorise a pigeon Than argue over who is wrong or maybe who is right… It seems a silly way to me to get into a fight. I know the Christmas story, ’cause she told me long ago, AboutContinue reading “Ani’s Advent 2020! – Pondering”

There is always that one awkward person, You just cannot decide what to proffer When Christmas comes round Gifts seem thin on the ground But a book is a good thing to offer. You can go for adventure or romance Or a story of brimstone and gore, There’s horror or mystery Chick-lit and history Fantasy,Continue reading “Ani’s Advent 2020! Gifted authors…?

Ani’s Advent 2020! Snowing Cats and Dogs…

Dear Santa, We’ve still had no snow. Do you have wheels for the sleigh in case we don’t have any? You never see it with wheels on the pictures… but I don’t think it would be fair to Rudolph and co to expect them to drag you and all those presents around the world withoutContinue reading “Ani’s Advent 2020!

Ani’s Advent Calendar 2020! Paws for thought…

Dear Santa, Do you know how many of the four-legs I have met since I’ve been blogging have come from rescues and shelters? You’ve got to admit, they are all intelligent and interesting creatures… Yes, even the cats. Noelle’s Garfield, for a start, though it pains me to say it, is gorgeous.

Ani’s Advent 2020! Elijah Moon, Garfield and Noelle Granger…

Dear Santa, I’ll confess right now, I don’t like many cats. The way they crouch and stare at me… S’enough to drive me bats. * They sit upon the garden fence And always out of reach, And some of them will spit and snarl And sometimes even screech. * I don’t like many cats atContinue reading “Ani’s Advent 2020!

What with covid, lockdowns and everything else that has gone on this year…we don’t know what we will be able to do about Christmas or however else we celebrate the midwinter.

The Small Dog Shows Support…

Some people need to learn to sleep, Adjust their body clock, Not keep a guard dog wide awake… It sends the job acock * She spends her evening counting sheep, Her nights at half-awake, I spend my time in dreams of sleep And wish her count would break. * She says it’s not her choiceContinue reading “The Small Dog Shows Support…”

The Small Dog’s Vicious Circle…

Well, she’s still being weird And she’s up half the night, So we sit in the garden Because stars are bright And why shouldn’t we watch As they twinkle and shine? I don’t care what we’re doing ‘Cause this time is mine. * With her hands in my fur, Or caressing my ears, It’s thisContinue reading “The Small Dog’s Vicious Circle…”

The Small Dog’s Revenge…

I must do the floor, I thought, in some despair, The small dog is moulting and shedding her hair. She’s out in the garden, so if I am quick, And just whip the vac out, that should do the trick. She’s already cross because out in the garden I got out the lawnmower, let myContinue reading “The Small Dog’s Revenge…”
