A Bozoical Christmas.....

He is home in time for the holiday season. Bozo, Mumbai's only dog with his own blog, was unwell, and is taking things a bit easy now.

Unlike some biped folks I know, who go overboard "imbibing" in festive seasons, he listens to what the experts say.

My blogger friend, and Bozo's official personal chronicler, Magiceye, has been listening to Bozo and posted this Christmas picture....

Sometimes I think Bozo understands the spirit of Christmas better......

I am back,
from some
and interesting times,
with some elder
Moo aunties and uncles,
as well as Miaoww types.

shiny spotted coats,
and glistening
blacks and browns
there were these
folks in spotless white coats,
who patted me,
and heard me breathe,
and poked me
at times.

"Take it easy",
they said,
"you've had enough excitement.
Dividing worries,
Multiplying joys,
Adding comforting nuzzles,
subtracting absences.

Now's your time
to lie down
in the Sun
and watch
the Christmas world go by.

With a lifetime
of charging around
so much happiness
to so many,
even  a Smart Santa
like you,
needs to
take a break."

And I listened !

Season's Greetings, Bozo !

    Multiplying joys,
    Adding comforting nuzzles,
    subtracting absences."
