Binky was not the only one dressed up. This is Aunt Dolly, and she's a beagle who just can't wait for Christmas.
You see, Aunt Dolly is a retired hunting dog. She has lived outdoors her whole life, and has never experienced the life of an indoor dog. She doesn't know about decorations, or Christmas trees, or family get-togethers. She has never experienced a cozy bed next to a fireplace, or a couch where she can cuddle up next to her person. In many ways, this will be Dolly's first Christmas. She just moved from a shelter into a foster home, and has immediately fallen in love with all the comforts of home. Fortunately Binky lives at this foster home so he will be able to show her the ropes.
We're just hoping she can reign in some of her enthusiasm about the upcoming holidays. You can see she's a bit out of control.
And once we told her about the food that comes along with Christmas, well, her excitement level was through the roof. She had to sit down, she got so excited.
