My grandmother decided to give everyone socks for their birthday this year. She has some kind of thing about cold feet, and didn’t want us to have that, so she found a website where she could make personalized pet socks using a picture of her dog. My birthday was just a few weeks ago, so I got them in the mail around that time. When I took a good look at them, they looked kind of funny, but they were also cute. I tried the socks on, and they were a perfect fit. My grandmother has a way with knowing our sizes.
I called my grandmother thank her for the socks and she was glad that I liked them. I wanted to get something for her to show my appreciation, but I didn’t have a dog of my own to use for socks. Then I had a good idea. There was a local show that had a dog on it that my grandmother loved to see. I called up the station that airs that show and asked them if I could take a picture of the dog to use for socks. They told me I could come down to the station and get the picture.
The dog was pretty cooperative about having his picture taken. I guess when you work on television as long as that dog has, you get used to being in front of cameras and seeing people aim them at you. I went to the website that my grandmother used and gave it the picture of the dog from the show. They made it into socks and I shipped them out to my grandmother. When she got the package in the mail, she called me to tell me how much she loved the new pair of socks.
