I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I always feel really bad for those Bumpus pooches in ‘A Christmas Story.’ (The picture is actually from the sequel – they move too fast in the Christmas movie to get a good, non-blurry picture. At least, that’s the excuse Mom gave me.)
I know they do a really baaad thing and I would never even think of eating the Christmas turkey all by myself…okay, I’ve thought about it but I’d never do it.
But isn’t it obvious that these hound aren’t getting the love and attention they need from the Bumpus’? The ‘old man’ might be a grouch, but those doggies know that he’s a good guy and would probably make a better owner than the one they’ve got. They just want his love and attention – and what better way to get his notice than to eat his turkey? There’s no way he’s going to let that pass.
I just hope he doesn’t borrow Ralphie’s BB Gun to take care of the scourge of the turkey-lover’s world.
Since I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, I’ll wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! If I do post before then, well, see you then!
