Hi everybuddy. It’s me…Zoey. Today I thought I’d flashback to December 2008 and re-run my very first Christmas post. I had never experienced Christmas on the inside before, so everything was new to me. I hope you enjoy my flashback.


Zoey close up

So what’s all this talk ’bout Christmas? The guy and the lady with the yellow hair keep talking ’bout Christmas and decorating and presents and stuff. They put some lights and round things that smell like pine trees in all the windows. And they put a tree with twinkly lights up inside the house. Hey! It’s not even a real tree! Who puts a fake tree in their house??? And they decorated the tree with all sorts of purrty hanging things (the hanging things are fun to play with too!). What’s going on???

The lady with the yellow hair told me that last year I spent Christmas outside in the cold and snow. So I missed celebrating Christmas and all this stuff like putting up a tree and decorating and waiting for Santa Claws.

And, yeah…who IS this Santa Claws and can he really see me all the time??? The lady with the yellow hair says I have to be good so Santa Claws will bring me presents. Well, I think I already got the bestest present when I came to live here!

I like napping under the Christmas tree

Oh, yeah…and napping under this fake tree isn’t so bad! I think I’m gonna like Christmas!!


I still like napping under the Christmas tree

And look…8 years later…some things never change. I still like napping under the Christmas tree!

  38. Beautiful Zoey, you are so lucky to have a big fake tree to lay under. You’ve seen that puny little thing my humans dragged home. It’s a disgrace to the word tree!!! Merry Christmas sweetie to you and your family. Do you mind if I come over and enjoy your tree too? I think it’s big enough for both of us if we snuggle a little bit.

  39. You really did get the the bestest present when you went to live there. But so did your mom!

  40. We really enjoyed your flashback, Zoey. And we agree… a forever home is the bestest present ever.

  41. Forever homes are the bestest prezzie.
