Merry Christmas, Dumpster Dog!

Merry Christmas, Dumpster Dog!

$22.50 Sale Save

It’s Christmas once again. But this year, Dumpster Dog and Flat Cat have decided they’re going to celebrate in a house instead of their trash can!

But can they find a home for Christmas Eve with such little time to spare? Enter the Noel family. Dumpster Dog scratches at their door, and miraculously enough, it is opened by the young Marie. But this seemingly kindly act is far from the Christmas miracle Dumpster Dog first takes it to be.

Instead, what he learns from his time with the Noels—something that is near miraculous in its transformative force—is that you can be poor even if you have money, and that you can be truly rich even if the only place you have to call home is a stinky old garbage can. For our deepest longings as creatures—our need for meaning, connectedness, and belonging—cannot actually be answered by having stuff, but only through acts of becoming that lead us to be more aware, more connected, more rooted, and more free.

Though Dumpster Dog goes looking for a home, the Christmas miracle he experiences is to understand that he is already at home in the world and on that account, he can help make others feel at home, too.
