Pethood Stories: Christmas by Cruz + GIVEAWAY!

Having reached the wise age of 2.8 years, I can confidently say that humans are quite predictable! Every December they do the exact same things in the following order: put a tree – that I am not allowed to pee – by the window, bake treats – that I am not allowed to eat, sing songs -that I try to sing but weirdly everyone laughs at me, and buy new clothes – including this Santa’s Little Helper dress that Mum made me wear today. Petplan Giveaway

As days go by and we are getting closer to Christmas, Mum runs around the house dressed in yellow clothes (apparently, she tells me, they are red but I don’t even know what red is!), and everyone is excited for no obvious reason. I mean, aside from the bacon flavoured biscuits, the turkey nibbles and the peanut butter dog pie, I see no reason why everyone’s so excited these days. Also, I see no reason why grandma bought me new soft toys either. There was nothing wrong with the previous ones…it just happened that we had an argument in the middle of the night and I decided to tear them apart just to show them who is the boss in this house. One of these days, I fully indent to do the same with Mum’s fluffy slippers, it’s so annoying that they move around every time she walks, someone must teach them a lesson and this one should most certainly be ME! Petplan Giveaway

Christmas songs and decorations aside, another thing that I noticed occurring every December is that my walks are getting shorter and my paws get wet every time we go out. I don’t know why Mum is allowed to have an umbrella while I only wear a jacket, but I guess I have to talk to Daddy about this. Unless immediate measures are taken, I will refuse to go out and I will declare the annoying flashing lights tree by the window my new toilet, they like it or not. Petplan Giveaway

Speaking of Mum, she believes I am a bossy, little dog who wants to be the man of the house. Surely she has things confused in her head; not only I AM the man of the house but also I am as big as cousin Bear who is a Newfoundland. We both swim and save things from the water. Like the other day that I saved some driftwood and Bear saved me. If that doesn’t make us equals then what! Petplan Giveaway

To bring things back to order and vanish any confusion about my grandiosity, I came up with a cunning plan to prove to everyone how splendid I am by hacking Mum’s blog. This morning, and while she was still sleeping, I slipped out of bed, turned on the laptop, hacked her password (predictable it was my date of birth) and here I am today writing this post for all you dog friends and loyal followers who love my Instagram updates and selfies. It’s been sometime now that I try to explain to Mum that the popularity of this Blog is solely attributed to my presence but as she still hasn’t mastered to speak the doggy language and understand me, I thought I should take matters on my paws!
