Family Fun Fact #291

When Hula was seven years old and SuperCop was about to turn two, the family dog had puppies. Thirteen puppies!! One was so small it was tragically squashed when there was no more room in the cardboard box in the basement where they were birthed. And then there were twelve puppies. Twelve Irish Setter puppies that Hula and SuperCop wanted to keep. Alas, they were sold to good families but forever memorialized in this Christmas photo from 1971, or as Hula likes to call it, the year of the Pretzel Pants. It was also the year Hula covered everything in large paper snowflakes.

*No animals were harmed in the making of this photo beside a cardboard fireplace.

Old photos are just priceless, aren't they? I have some that show a remarkably similar, equally puzzling tree.

OMG! The cardboard fireplace. I haven't thought of that is years. I would love to see them back in the stores again. I just wonder who in the world would buy them!
