Santa Claus Supervisor? Tessa, of Course!

December 13th, 2016

          There are Santa’s Elves, Santa’s helpers, Santa’s Reindeer, Santa’s Ms Claus and, of course, Santa’s Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Too often overlooked from the list is the one most important.

          Santa’s Supervisor is none other than her ladyship Contessa Le Rouge. Ms Tessa is currently modeling apparel suitable for her role on the big night. In the photo shown here she’s posing while deciding whether or not to wear the red hood or allow it to flip back. Similarly weighty decisions are expected as the lengthy holiday season continues.

          Tessa plans on taking me along during next Saturday’s Santa Paws run/walk/stroll in Palm Springs. Another of those weighty decisions is whether she should stroll in her Supervisory Santa finery or participate au naturel. Ahhhh, decisions, decisions, decisions……. So much for a year old puppy to decide.

Santa Claus Supervisor? Tessa, of course!

Tessa – Expecting a Treat?

December 12th, 2016

          Yesterday Contessa Le Rouge, “Tessa”, and I visited the revitalized Palm Springs Dog Park. The park is divided into sections for small dogs and another for larger ones. We headed for the small dog enclosure.

          The park was filled with perhaps as many as two dozen small dogs. Many were running, chasing each other, chasing balls or sitting and watching. Tessa was not particularly impressed. Several dogs shared sniffs with her, a few played chase, but for the most part she seemed to be ignored. Probably not what she expected and that may be why she spent most of her time near me. I was saddened to see her realize none of those dogs appeared to recognize who she is, her noble lineage and charismatic appeal. Perhaps on another day, with a more discerning doggy audience, that will all change.

          The photo is one of many similar poses from times she stayed close to me while in the park.

          Later in the day during our afternoon walk we encountered a neighbor dog. The two scampered around chasing each other and appeared to be having a great time. It was a completely different Tessa from the restrained side of her that I noticed while in the dog park.  Am wondering how she will feel about the dog park during our next visit?
