I always like to follow a good rant with pictures of Stormy the Wonder Dog, fresh from a visit to the Doggy Beauty Parlor. In honor of the holiday season upon us, the lovely ladies at the Parlor decorated him with Christmas bows.
I’ve opined before about how this might affect his masculinity. Thus far, things aren’t looking good, as he is still incredibly attracted to the cat, Pumpkin, who is not only the wrong species, but who is also a boy.
Of course, he is also attracted to the genderless stuffed dog that USED to belong to one of the children until he took it over. He alternates between loving it and viciously shaking it from side to side, growling ferociously while it is gripped firmly in his teeth.
Considering the way Mr. Collins wakes up in the morning, this, I suppose, could be the nature of all things male. Love ’em or rip ’em to shreds.
At any rate, I’ll make sure he knows it was all done in the spirit of the season. Perhaps then he’ll forgive us.
Today is the day that hundreds of thousands of lights go on in Temple Square. The annual lighting of the Mormon square is a tradition here in Utah. Coincidentally, Chez Collins also was decorated today, complete with the remote controlled lights on the tree. Mr. Collins insists on showing off the remote to everyone. I am not lying. Soon, no one will come to Chez Collins anymore, just because they don’t want to see the remote controlled Christmas tree lights. C’est la vie.
