Unfortunate Christmas Tragedy - 2019 Update!

Recommended Posts

As some of you may remember, way back in 2005, our crazy free spirited girl Specky dismantled a Santa Christmas ornament. I have no idea what crime Santa had done to so deeply offend Specky, but she certainly did a first class job of tearing him to bits! Literally!

This is what the pieces I could salvage looked like after Specky got through with Santa!

Poor Santa was quite the sad case! All of his body parts dismembered, some of them past the point of recognition! So I got out my glue gun, and did my best to reconnect Santa - sort of like putting Humpty Dumpty back together again! I really did try, but alas, my results were less then optimum. I really should have paid more attention in anatomy class!

Here we are, 14 years later, celebrating Christmas once again. Specky sadly left us back in 2013. Gosh we miss that crazy girl! She brought so much joy and excitement to our lives! We now live with an almost equally crazy three year old Standard Poodle named Molly. There are times when we swear Specky is whispering in her ear - giving her ideas of new ways to get into mischief! Don't listen Molly!! Ok, maybe listen a little, because every home needs some crazy every once in a while! 

So let us all again remember the example of Specky. That crazy girl who knew how to live life to the fullest. Who was never afraid to do the unexpected. We can all learn a little from this tiny spark plug who taught us the meaning of fun!

I wonder how Santa feels about having Specky's picture* RIGHT NEXT to him on the tree.

 

*Have always loved that pic of Specky laughing with happiness

Well considering the way this group checks up on him every Christmas, I don't think she has any choice in the matter.
