Around the holidays though, Thatgirl spends a lot of time in the kitchen. And I get to help out. I love to position myself right at the edge of the kitchen. Close enough where she can see me patiently waiting, but far enough away where I don't have to worry about the hot oven things or the knives she's always dropping.
When I've been an especially good boy, Thatgirl gives me some of her extra special treats. She makes a lot of my treats herself, because she says that way she knows what I'm eating. These treats are so yummy, that she and Thatboy sneak them too! This time when she made them, she coated half of them in coconut especially for the two of them. She explained to me that while coconut probably is okay for me to eat, the kind she had was sweetened and she doesn't like me having sweetened foods. The honey in these treats make them sweet enough for me anyway.
So remember, little furry friends give you their love year round. Don't forget them this time of year in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. A treat here, a new toy there, maybe even a warm new sweater!
