Christmas isn’t just about treats and presents.

Fellow Canines,

Just look at what a bi Ped, who I’ve become friends with, is doing for our homeless family. Christmas is all about giving and Hugh’s gesture brings a lovely warm feeling to my tummy.

Ben’s own contribution to Ani’s Advent Calendar 2018 :)

Friends, collies and festive dogs,

My mate Ani, ‘the small dog’, has v. v. v kindly used one of the days of her advent calendar to post my Christmas poem. Thank you very much Ani.

Ani’s advent calendar is a rich eclectic mixture of stories, poems and fables about the festive season. There are posts about Christmas in the war, a children’s Christmas and even saving abandoned Christmas trees and giving them new life. I know all about that being abandoned once. There are lots of fascinating links to other information too. Did you know mistletoe has a history linked with the Druids. I can’t say for sure if they did some of that kissing stuff under it or not. Anyway, check out my poem here. Then you can navigate to all the older days on the calendar and watch out for the ones to come.

Ani’s person has a lot to say too. She is a writer, poet and photographer and fills her blog with so many interesting articles.  She also publishes loads of work by other bi peds you really need to check her out https://scvincent.com/

Happy reading

Love Ben 🐾

 

Ani’s Advent Calendar 2018! Rationing, Roberta Eaton and a child’s Christmas in wartime

My fellow writer Ani (the small dog) has made an advent calendar of recollections about Christmas from her friends (two and four legged). What a brilliant idea.

Today’s is all about what a little girl wrote to Santa in the war time. It make me feel very lucky indeed. I’m going to ask my people not to buy me so many presents this year but to give some dosh to the dog re-homing kennels. It’s very hard to do but I think it’s the right thing. I hope we don’t have to go in for rationing though.

You can read the letter but clicking on this link and follow Ani’s calendar too.

Love Ben 0

OMG. Look what elevated company a dog poet has been invited to join. There is lot to eat and drink here, at the end of summer party, and all these fascinating writer people for a dog to meet. Just one question… who is going to stop me eating too much and keep me away from the red wine?

I’m so excited to be invited to the party I’m inclined to do a 4 step jig 🙂
