Yesterday was Augie Dawg's Christmas party so we got to hang out with our favorite buddy TOF. I thought it was the perfect day to go see Santa at the mall, being a balmy 19 degrees and all. I talked it up all day so TOF would be used to the idea of sitting on Santa's lap. I gave him a haircut, he got a tubby, ate some lunch, took a nice long nap. We had a great day so far.
We get to the mall and TOF is walking around saying "Ho Ho Ho, where are you?" I had a good feeling. We get to the display, here he is peering inside.
Here he is at the entrance. So far so good.
Wait, he's doing a 180! No, TOF no like Ho Ho Ho!
Aw come on Buddy, he'll give you candy.
No thank you. TOF no like Ho Ho Ho.
Well at least there were no tears or screaming. We might try another day and then again maybe not.
He was however, most cooperative at Picture People, where there was no fat man.
What you can't see on his shirt is "What Santa doesn't bring me, Grandma will"
Yup and he doesn't cry when he sits on my lap.
