Merry Christmas, and a New Pet

Merry Christmas!  I wish all of you who celebrate it, a wonderful day!

And now for the story:

Apparently, my husband thought I needed another pet. (If you've followed me a while, you know that we used to have a regular zoo here - 23 fish, a parakeet, four hermit crabs, a cat, a turtle, a dog and a frog. The herd has dwindled a bit.)  A dog, a cat, and a frog just aren't enough.  So he got me a camel.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen.  A camel.  Meet Bart:



 Bart is our new family pet.  I like him.  He doesn't eat much, he doesn't shed much, he doesn't poop,  and he's quiet.     He's perfect.  As long as our German Shepherd, Schultz doesn't decide he likes to snack on camels, I'm sure Bart will be around for a long time.


                                      Bart would like to wish you a Merry Christmas, too!

    1. He does have a creepy look in his eye, but once you get used to it, it's kind of endearing. ;0)

  6. Camels don't need much work. It's very lucky that he didn't get you a horse instead!

    Merry Christmas, Sherry!

    1. He should've come with a comb. That hair might get a little out of control!

    1. He's a real stuffed animal. And the good thing is, he doesn't eat books like live camels do!

  16. Happy Holidays.

    You have a lot of pets. I try to control myself around cute animals, or I'd have a zoo as well.

    1. The problem is, my kids were so convincing in their arguments to get these pets. It was quite an effort to take care of all of them!
