What I'm Getting for Christmas

"Woman," my husband said.  "I know what I'm getting you for Christmas."

This ought to be good, I thought.  "What am I getting for Christmas?"

"A dog named Sherry."

"What?"  I couldn't believe it.  Wasn't one dog enough?

"Yep.  It'll be another German Shepherd.  And she'll do everything you don't.  She'll come when she's called.  She'll sit.  She'll heel. She'll fetch."

I gave him one of my looks.  "Yeah, and she'll lick your nose after she's licked her bottom."

Can you believe it?  A dog named Sherry.  I'll rank this one along with the toilet I got for Mother's Day.  He sure knows how to pick presents!

  1. Loved this post, Sherry, and had to read it to hubs. Good comeback!

    I recommended your blog to a friend of mine with a young son. You brighten the day, as does little Bubba.

  3. We men are good at finding either practical gifts that will benefit us or really stupid gifts that piss off the recipients. Naming the dog Sherry just doesn't seem right though.

    1. Oh, good, Arlee. I'm glad you see the folly of naming the dog Sherry! At least I know there's one decent man on the planet!

    1. Yeah, wouldn't that be nice? Actually, maybe I'll just teach Schultz those tricks. He needs to make himself useful!

  6. A dog named Sherry for Christmas? Is your husband wanting a bag of coal this year? I hope you get something you want for Christmas!

    1. I don't know. He's been talking a lot about getting another dog. I told him if he does, I'm out of here! ;)

  10. Licking him on the nose isn't good enough. Sherry will lick his lips. She'll probably even manage to get her tongue inside his mouth. Take that, Mister Man.

    Love,
    Janie
