Yes, the quiet heroes are the ones who deserve a bit of magic this year.
Rex was my childhood dog, and he was a hero. We were born on the same day! Many of my Jennie Stories at school are about Rex. Did I tell you he taught me how to walk? Thank you Sue for sharing Rex’s story with Ani.
Sometimes, you have to wonder at people… I mean, last time Rex told us one of his stories, he just told us about the things he sort of got in trouble for. It turns out, though, that he’s pretty much a hero and never mentioned it…
Mind you, there are lots of people who are real heroes and never say a word. The quiet ones who look out for everyone else… the ones who work behind the scenes who no-one notices… the ones who never blow their own trumpet and don’t even think they are remarkable in any way.
And many of them have been especially busy this year, looking after the people this horrible bug has kept indoors and made lonely. If there is room in your sack for a bit extra this years, Santa… maybe you could sprinkle a bit of magic for them…

I loved this story about Rex but didn´t realize he was your childhood dog. That makes it even more special.
Thank you, Darlene. I’m glad you loved the story. Great memories, and the children at school love this Rex story.
Aww, Jennie. Thanks for sharing your story about Rex. I’m heading over to read. 🙂
Thanks, Diana. I hope you enjoy the story. 🙂
This is delightful, Jennie. I’m glad you shared it. Be well, be happy. Hugs on the wing!
I’m glad you liked it, Teagan. Hugs to you!
Nice memories of lovely Rex. We have made sure that Ollie has presents to open on the 25th. He has soft toys in the shape of a huge carrot, and a Christmas turkey. Then today, Julie got him an extra one, a stuffed lion with a big fluffy mane. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Awww… okay, I am choked up thinking about Ollie at Christmas. Thank you for telling me what Santa is bringing him. I promise not to tell Ollie. ❤️
True and a Beautiful tribute. Moved me, lump in my throat.
You are welcome 😊
Jennie, thank you for sharing this story!
You are welcome, Charles!
Terrific story, Jennie. And the premise is so true. I’m heading out now to get our 4 legger a new bag of food for the next month. Have a great day!
Thanks, Steve. The everyday hero, like Rex, needs to be remembered and thanked. Those 4-leggeds are the best! Best to you.
Our childhood dog George looked uncannily like Rex. Ours was a cocker spaniel labrador mix and was a truly great dog.
Don’t we all have great memories of our childhood dog? I’m sure George was a great dog! Actually, the photo is Sue’s dog, Ani.
I enjoyed reading about Rex over at Sue’s blog, Jennie.
Thank you, Robbie.
Lol – Ani, the small rioting dog lady from somewhere near Ireland. Lol Indeed, a great idea with the Advent calendar, and the daily stories are also very amazing.
