Dear Santa...All I Want is NOT A DOG

Dear Santa…All I Want is NOT A DOG

” A Dog” is the first item on each of my three sons’ lists to Santa.  These boys obviously didn’t read my post, {I Don’t Grow Animals, I Grow Humans}. Don’t get me wrong. I love animals, especially dogs, but I don’t want to have to take care of one, because let’s face it, I would be doing all the work. I wish there was a service where you could rent a dog for the holidays and then give it back once the first video game was chewed up or poop was discovered under a bed. Well, maybe that wouldn’t work, but I have thought of something even better…

An iRobot Roomba [Check out the iRobot Roomba Here!}!

 It is like a dog…sort of. It moves around the house from room to room eating up all the crumbs your kids have dropped. It sniffs around and sucks up bugs, dirt and rubber bands. That’s what dogs do, right? But the Roomba doesn’t poop or pee. It doesn’t chew on shoes. It doesn’t wake you up at 4 am. It doesn’t need shots. I’m totally asking Santa for one of these. The boys will never want a real dog after experiencing “iRobot Roomba Ralph, the Dog.” My floors for once will be clean and I will have something cold and flat to snuggle up with while watching TV. It’s a win-win.
