Dogs and Santa. Oh yes, and Daughter

It’s been a pretty cold day, here, in Mississippi. They predicted a snowstorm that has subsequently decided not to exist. I think this is part of a pattern of over-reaction that has instilled itself ever since we had that ice storm that incapacitated the whole city for several days. Several areas were without power and the streets were un-drivable in some sections. There wasn’t even a hint of a warning from our beloved meteorologists. So now, we have full scale paranoid alerts every time a dark cloud meanders over from Arkansas. My wife took my daughter and our new Shih Tzu over to Old Towne in Olive Branch to have a picture taken with Santa. I printed up the photos (that they stuck up on a website) at work since my techs repair the highest quality HP printers and there’s tons of photo paper lying around. The dog is so cute that I have to watch myself and make sure I point out my daughter first.
“Hey, look at this. That’s my new dog!”
“Who’s the person?”
“Who’s the person?”
“Oh. That’s Santa.”
“No. The girl.”
“Oh. That’s my daughter.”
Needless to say, I don’t get many appreciative looks from the moms I work with. It’s that damn Shih Tzu, I tells you. Just too cute for it’s own good. You can take a look at: Daughter's photo (see, I'm getting better)See what I mean.

Very nice pic, everyone looking pleasant and all...but the dog has REALLY mastered the "coy" look.

Thanks. Sometimes I swear that dog has taken "cute" lessons. Rhiannon looks cute in the photo, as well. (Mustn't. Forget. Daughter.)
