Simon: Heyyy dad! Murray Christmas!
Ethan: What did you do today?
Simon: I waited on you, like I always do.
Ethan: I’ve got to get you some presents…
Simon: I want a new blanket, some treats, a new maze toy, it’s obvious this is not a present tree.
Ethan: those stuffed reindeer are ornaments not toys.
Simon: This is why I love you. And also, I can’t remember.
Simon: I like this movie. This is my favourite movie of all movies.
Ethan: Homeward Bound?
Simon: I could do that. I could live in the wilderness.
Ethan: You mean like the time you ran off in the woods for 45 minutes?
Simon: I was gone for days,dad. Days.
Simon: Hack! Cough! Gag!
Simon: Ewww that’s disgusting.
(Rolls in it)
Ethan: What are you doing!!! Get up!!
Ethan: What is wrong with you?
Simon: I don’t know,dad. I’m not even two yet…
Ethan: Oh my god… well now it’s bath time…
Simon: Nooo! Why does this KEEP happening OVER and OVER!
Ethan: calm down crazy it’s been a week.
Ethan: Uhm yes, hello. This is Ethan. My dog,the idiot, Simon. He ate five Hershey kisses. Do I need to do anything?
Vet: Did he eat the wrappers?
Ethan: No. no, I don’t think he liked those.
Vet: Was it milk chocolate or dark?
Ethan: milk with almonds
Vet: (laughs) ok ok he should be ok. Just monitor him for a few hours, he might get a little sick to his stomach but he should be ok.
Ethan: Thank you.
Simon: Hey, dad, how about some more of those chocolates. Those are delicious.
Ethan: You- you – idiot
Simon: (under the table) It’s ok. You can just package them for me instead. Like a present.
Ethan: I’ll show you a present. You scared me half to death.
Simon: Seems a bit drastic but ok. (You can never be too agreeable when your human is emotional)
Simon: Guys. I need to tell you about this dream I had.
Ethan: Ok, I’m listening.
Simon: I dreamed I got walked!
Simon: Lately that has been a dream. . .
Ethan: What’re you doing?
Simon: Shhh…I’m checking FB for animal shelters.
Simon: Yeah,dad. Like the one I found you in. Saved from a life in a cage!!
Ethan: you weren’t in a cage…you w- wait a minute. I was living quite well before you.
Simon: How do you sleep at night.
Ethan: Well, it is easier since you keep my feet warm. You bed hog.
Simon: Aww so many are getting adopted. Now I can sleep tonight.

It’s national Adopt a Shelter Pet Month.
I know I’m a little guy.
But I was a shelter pet.
Left in a ditch.
I love my new pack family
And hunting stuffed Giraffes
for all you do when you adopt a pet.
And remember the seniors like Lester! They are great feet warmers and love just as much as us little guys.
(Learn more about adopting)
Lester has been with the shelter for 6 years! (That’s like …six and a half of my entire lives)
