The Best Present

Our border collie gets excited, when we start to open the presents under our Christmas tree.  Eleven years of tennis balls hasn't dimmed his enthusiasm for this gift.  He sat with tail wagging wildly as he waited to be handed his tissue-wrapped present.  He got it unwrapped fairly quickly and settled down to enjoy a good chew, before requesting a fetching session.

A friend, got diamond earrings that had been at the top of her wish list this year.  Her husband, who knew that she had her heart set on them, was rewarded with a brief smile before she set them aside and began unwrapping her next gift.  A few minutes of enthusiastic expression would have been a real gift to her husband.  She needs to take a lesson from our dog!
