Already Dreaming of Christmas





Holly Miller blogs for

The Paws and Claws Mysteries

by Krista Davis

 


It seems way too early to be thinking about Christmas. Here in Wagtail the days are hot. Dogs are swimming and boating, and cats are lounging in the shade because the sun is too hot. It's still prime vacation time.

But today I started receiving the merchandise that we'll be selling at the Christkindl Market! Even though it's far too early, I'm having fun looking through the ornaments in the shapes of dogs and cats. And there are adorable outfits for them, too. I bought an elf hat and matching jacket for my Jack Russell Terrier, Trixie! It suits her personality so well.

The inn cook will be baking special Christmas cookies for dogs and cats. I'm getting a box of special holiday collars, too. Fancy collars with bling, and dog dresses with ruffles! How cute is that?

And guess what? My heartthrob Holmes is coming home for Christmas this year! No wonder I'm dreaming of it already. I just know it's going to be very special.

Just in case you missed Mission Impawsible, Krista says I can give away a copy! Leave a comment with your name and email address so she'll know where to find you if you win.
