Merry and Bright

Smidgey here.

I got lit

Don't I look merry and bright

I'll give you bright, but don't push your merry on me!

But if I pretend to be merry mom gives me a treat. (🥕)

And she gives me a forum (this blog) to speak my truth...

...which in 2022 you will be hearing weekly

But I'm getting ahead of myself

Mom will share what's coming up on wee words for wee ones in the New Year next week...

In the meantime, look what mom stuck my head into recently. 

Dogs and hoodies don't matter the temperature.

To drive this point home I wrote this poem...


some dogs have fur that is thick

I have fur that is thinning 

on cold days I wear a hoodie

mom can't keep from grinning


OK, I admit I look good

- did I just hear you scoff?

hoodies are not for every...body

they're hard to pull off

(see what I did there?)

Bwa ha ha ha ha! Oh, Smidgey. You are a fun and funny good hound. I'm sorry about the hoodie. But, no least it wasn't the reindeer antlers. Merry Christmas, little lit dog.

Oh, Smidgey! Are the other Swiss dogs jealous of your natty duds? I can't wait to see what ELSE mom has in store for you!!

Tabatha said...

Wow, I really like the lit look, very festive! Merry Christmas to Smidge and fam!

Ha--poor Smidgey and his sporty hoodie! He does look fine sporting colorful lights. Best wishes for a joyful Christmas to Smidgey's pack.

Hahaha... thanks for the giggles. Love Smidgey in his duds. Looking forward to your news, and wishing you a lovely holiday.

What a marvelously funny post Bridget, and your Smidgey sure has style and personality too. Merry Christmas to you all!

A compelling character indeed, is your Smidgey! I'm looking forward to what the new year brings.

Smidgey is looking very dapper for the holidays and is such a comic. I love his voice, too. Side note: I personally like hoodies.
