The Joy of a Warm Cozy Fireplace, a Pixel Favorite!

I am not sure when I first discovered just how wonderful a cozy fire is in the fireplace, but I absolutely love it! We have a gas fireplace that has a thermostat, so it only comes on when the temperature gets to a certain point in the living room. If I was tall enough, I'd set that thermostat to 90, then it would keep the fire going indefinitely. But, since I can't do that, I just relish the moments it comes on. I sometimes walk over and sit real close to the fireplace, willing it to come on. Then somehow, it magically does! I swear, I think Mommy or Grammy must be watching and that they increase the temperature on the remote just for me, but I'm sure I must be imagining it. Whatever the case I LOVE it.
Everyone has been getting all worried about me getting too close to the fireplace, even though I am a master Pixel fire dog. I stick my face sooooooo close to the fire, which has a metal curtain that can get hot. I've never gotten burned, but I know I make Mommy nervous, so for Christmas, Grammy bought, just for me, a fireplace protector screen. It's not to protect the fire she said, but to protect me! Isn't that just the sweetest thing ever? And so thoughtful. Now I can sit as close to the screen as possible and no one has to worry I might get burned, and no one has to try and get me to move back from it. Thank you Grammy!!
Did you get a thoughtful gift from someone this past holiday? I'd love to hear about it!
This post is part of the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday blog hop. But who can be wordless when you get a gift like that? Lots of my fellow pet bloggers have taken part in this blog hop, sharing their own photos and stories. Go check them out by visiting some of the links below!
