Pumpy and Company

photo (4)
“I am submitting this picture of Botox. Botox’s nickname is “Pumpy No Nutz” because when he was a puppy, he humped all the time. He also has no nuts and still humps people to this day. He is probably thinking in the picture, ‘Why are there so many shiny toys for me on this tree?’ He absolutely loves Christmas and tends to keep questionable company during this time of the year.” -Lauren W with, um, TMI.

“For your holiday consideration: Our late, great Fila Brasileiro, Judge. At Christmas– and all year– he got lots of stuffed toys, which had very short lifespans. He would tear out the little squeaker inside and hold it in his mouth for hours. Kind of like eating the heart of a vanquished enemy.” -Carina M.

That sounds kind of creepy, though. He’s not too thrilled about Christmas (too many changes in the house), but we’ll say what he’s really worried about is delivering all those presents!” Megan Z., have a Merry one!

  1. Poor BunBun. I used to bring snow inside in a box for my bunny to play with, which she adored. But when I actually brought her outside she looked at me like “What the hell is WRONG with you? It’s COLD out here!!” and hopped back to the door to glare at me until we went back inside.
