I asked my Facebook friends to share with me their pets’ holiday wishes, both for themselves and others. These were their responses:
Kimberley Pearson’s chinchilla, Elmo, “wants anything edible.”
Jenny Kalahar said, “Weegee dog wants peace on Earth, good will toward men and animals, and her very own Christmas turkey that she doesn’t have to share with us or the cats.”
Angi Miller Candias said, “I’m sure my guys would be happy with anything they get. And if they got no presents (yeah right), they would still be their happy little selves…their joy is with us, their humans. What I want for THEM this year is to remain safe, happy and healthy, just like they are.”
Deborah Davidson Harpur’s Rickie Roo “wants all the homeless pets to get something special for Christmas… hopefully a forever family, but if not that a toy, some blankets or towels, maybe even some treats or toys!”
Tammy Crosby’s Max “is hoping for a replacement sibling, but since he knows that’s not gonna happen he’ll settle for a big fat stocking packed with stuffies!”
Ellyn Camp points out that, “Most want a home forever.”
From those who have found their forever homes, please enjoy their holiday joy:
Lydia Henke Trunnell’s Josie and Trace!
Lisa Leipold’s Whiz:
Shari King’s Blues and his daughter Pooh:
Susan Ernstrom Roberts’ “Elf that chewed up the shelf!”
Lyndy Jacob’s Élan:
Julie Howell’s rescued Border Collie, Tippy, is worried the sheep will laugh at him in his hat:
Debbie Brown’s rescued Aussie, Jasper, has had a little too much Christmas cheer:
