“Twas the morn of the New Year,
And all through the pad,
Not a creature was stirring,
Except this pup and his dad …”
Good morning, gentle humans, and Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a wonderful NYE celebration … except for those of you who were lighting fire crackers late last night. How is a clever puppy supposed to sleep?
I did sleep, however, after a long night of partying and playing tug-an-arm with dad. Fell asleep right on the floor. Puff the dragon slept, too. By the way, he is holding up very well to all my chewing efforts. Those people really did a good job with him … but this puppy will still emerge victorious in the end!
Dad didn’t think he could stay awake last night until midnight, but he did a very good job of it, even with all those glasses of bubbly stuff that he was drinking. Mom, as usual, stayed up well past midnight, while Travis played some game called “blindfold rum tasting.” Wow, you should have seen all the different bottles! Even one that he said tasted like “gasoline.” (Now, how would he even know what gasoline tasted like? Has he tried it?? Huh? This inquisitive puppy wants to know.)
Oh, before I stop for today, I want to share something with you. Look at this map:
It shows all the counties around the world from where you gentle humans viewed my blog! There were hits from all the countries marked in YELLOW, plus the U.S. (of course). Wow, that is twenty-six countries in all! Even places like Sri Lanka, and Trinidad-and-Tobago, and Kuwait! I guess that this clever puppy is world-famous!
Of course, many of these hits could be from one friend of mine who flies all over the world … she is a flight attendant. I will have to ask her.
Well, I need to see who else is awake this morning. This clever puppy wants to play! That will be a great way to start the new year.
I hope that you have a great day as well!
