Wally’s Great Adventures (25)

hello friends, wally here. happy christmas eve. i’m trying to lift the spirits here, where its a bit heavy, but not sure how to turn up my cute any higher. mom got teary eyed about dad’s youngest brother lorne who died on christmas eve 3 years ago. dad who doesn’t forget / let go of anything, stared blank faced, and walked away. with this giant hole, and dana (DANA!) being away, and that we haven’t seen eric since she left, and rachel and andrew sleeping till 11am, its very quiet around here, so i hang out and wrestle with sully, my brother. dad told me to say brother and not uncle, nephew, cousin or some other nonsense that mom keeps spewing, like she knows. dad went out on his walk this morning, came back with a chill, still chilled, worse than damn antarctica he called it. it sure must be cold in antarctica. i found the warmest vent in the house in the main floor bathroom so i plopped right down on it and took a nap. mom said i’ve got more presents than anyone, and so many from dad’s work friend caroline. i asked dad if i could open a few, and dad said no chance and that i have to wait, bah! neighbor Sue gave us a soft and cuddly blanket with frenchies on it, we love it so much. sully and i take turns sleeping on it. i’m so excited about tomorrow morning to open my presents. have a great day everyone.

  3. Much love to your dad. Christmas is hard for those of use who lost someone around the holidays. Give him extra hugs for me, okay? You are so smart to lie on the vent and that blanket looks soooo cuddly! Happy Christmas Eve to you!

  4. Ahh Wally, give your Mom and Dad extra snuggles today. The holidays are wonderful in many regards, but sadly they also make the sense of loss much keener. The sense of cold, clearly , is not one you are embracing. Between the vent and the blanket, you must have put any chills on the run. Enjoy your big day tomorrow…suspect you and Sully will have the biggest ‘gift piles’ of all. 🎅🎄💕

  10. Aaawh, so much cuddliness, love, warmth and a bit of a chill too…..
    I understand your dad who is still mourning his brother, so we must give him the extra cuddles he surely needs. I‘ve lost three family members within 10 months, but I mostly am thankful that some of their suffering was over and their poor bodies found rest. Don‘t know if my thoughts make sense to dad but in any case if he nourishes his hate on fate, it‘s not gonna do him any good.
    Anyway, I‘m sending extra love and warmth to all of you. It must be hard for your parents to ‚just‘ have you two doggies who only yearn to be warm and well fed, unpacking gifts and play….. when everybody was used to have Dana and Eric AND more family around. I trust you will make up any tears and sad memories with your feisty and convincing happiness. Sully will help too and thus you will make their Christmas a truly good one.
    Much love to all of you.

  11. Sorry you hass to learn about loss at such a tender age.
    We need you to hold Mom and Dad tight in your heart, please, Wally.

    I didn’t get to know your uncle Lorne. But one thing I LOVED and dearly miss about him is how he dared to put daddy in his place. He messed with daddy all the time. It was fun to watch. When people we love leave, we’re left with a hole in our hearts in their shape. I so sorry.

  15. Yours is a “must read” blog for some time. I have to say the addition of Wally this year makes this an even more attractive blog! Love the little rascal!

  16. I almost forgot: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I lost both a brother and a sister around Christmas. It does add a heaviness to the holiday, yet one needs to remember that Christmas is the prelude to the single most important event in Christian theology, Easter and the Resurrection of Christ. Given that, the sadness is “tainted” with joy!
