This Christmas, I got to go back to my parents house in Carencro and spend it with my family! Plenty of turkey, boudin rice dressing (it's amazing if you haven't tried it!), NBA basketball and getting to see a movie with my family helped make the day a special one! And, of course, I can't forget the midday nap!

But, one of the things I look forward to the most when I go back to my parents' home is getting to see my dog Paws! He was given the name Paws (before we got him) because of the way he puts his paw on a soccer ball after playing with it all over the back yard.

Paw has been my dog for quite a few years now, and it's always great to see him when I go back to Carencro. It took him awhile to adjust to my moving out, but I've learned over the years a good belly rub always smoothes things over with him!

Anyways, my mom has a treadmill in their guest room, and Paws decided to hang out on it. Little did he know he was about to get some exercise on it, even though he apparently didn't want it!
