I also wanted to recognize in the humor of this song that being left alone with the dogs isn’t necessarily the worst thing that could happen for some folks. Companionship is a wonderful thing.
I decided to write “The Dogs and Me for Christmas” for a couple of reasons. I wanted to remind us that there will be people we know that might welcome a call or a visit.
- Think through people you know that might appreciate a visit and plan one.
- If they are folks that have a pet that is a real companion for them, buy their pet a little present when you come for a visit. Your friend and their dog/cat will appreciate the gesture.
- Think of donating to a charity that helps provide support animals to veterans or those with disabilities that could not otherwise afford a four-footed companion. If you don’t know of any, ask me.
That being said, I’d like to suggest a couple of ways to help make a difference in the lives of others this Christmas.
For some folks, the holidays are the best days of the year, reconnecting with family and friends. For others it can be a very lonely time.
I hope you’ll experience the chance to receive and give love this Christmas.
Get a little reminder for your tree…
