Possibly the most epic dog name ever.

My mom and I tend to roll towards similar tastes, as many mother and daughter combos do. We agree on lifestyle choices like the preference of spending a quiet afternoon with a book over a shopping trip. We both enjoy the decadence of a rich cup of coffee with a side of chocolate cake as a favorite noshing opportunity. She loves to garden and I love to look at the gorgeous landscaped creations she brings forth every summer.
And Mom and I are fully aware that even though retro styles are the thing with young folk, there’s really no way to bring sexy back to the mid-70’s fashions. We were there together once and the memories of toe socks just won’t fade.
And through my mom, this appreciation of All Things Dog is a value I come by honestly. We always had several canine companions at our home, most of them working dogs with a job on the farmstead. And as a young explorer into the wooded areas about our home, I would have a protector or two to share my adventures.
Mom and I know how dogs can be so much more than kibble eaters and couch warmers. Instead we live an ideal life of total immersion in this Human-Animal Bond thing.
Life is good, y’all. It’s better with dogs.
So I was surprised when Mom and I had a philosophical disagreement on dog rescue.
If you’re like me, your motto during the holiday season is “it’s not last minute until it’s Christmas Eve.” So consider this a bit of planning ahead.
Because we’re both awesome like that.
We’ve got us a whole two sleeps before the big day. And if we have this planning gene in common, you and I, then perhaps we also share the desire to not leave the house again after surviving the holiday frenzies. Maybe never. But likely just until we run out of milk or something.
But how’s your shopping going? Do you still have someone on your list that’s still hanging out there?
You know the one.
What do you want for Christmas? you ask.
Oh, nothing, they say as they casually wave the thought away with a hand. Just your presence is enough. I have everything I need.
Does this drive you mad, too? Sure, they probably mean it. But darn it all, it just makes an awkward moment when the gift wrap is flying about the living room on Christmas morn.
And because, well, you want to gift them something since you care about them and stuff.
Does your difficult-to-gift person happen to be a fellow Lover of All Things Dog? Yeah? I have some gift ideas for you, then.
And you don’t even have to leave the house.
