SOME women want to be showered with diamonds and furs, but not this girl! Nope, it took a keen imagination and a shrewd mind for one of my friends to figure out what Christmas gift would reduce Shay to a grinning blob of pure happiness.
Yes, it's my new Shaun the Sheep toy, familiar to Wallace and Gromit fans everywhere! My dog Bosco, a border collie and therefore sheep herder by breeding and by nature, has been giving Shaun the baleful eye--perhaps thinking he must be a stray in need of herding--but Bosco's Mom is tickled silly and does not even blush to report that Shaun got lucky and slept with me last night! He's one baaaaaaaad mo fo!
The giver of this glorious gift wishes to remain un-named, perhaps fearing the gaudy light of celebrity due to her sheer brilliance.
And before any sheep-savvy readers write to tell me that merinos are white faced and Shaun is black faced....I knew that. Shaun told me!
