This year, her ex-boyfriend---who has done a lot to help look after my Dad---is joining us for Christmas. I know him, but not well. I have no idea what to buy a 45 year old single Dad. He has his own home theater business, and he's doing relatively well. He just got a puppy--maybe some stuff for his new dog? I have no idea.
I like that idea! Also maybe a book about the breed (if it is a purebred), or some other kind of book relating to dogs? (BTW, he sounds like a really nice guy.)
He IS an extremely nice guy---which is why we're glad he's my sister's EX-boyfriend. We were very glad when they split up. She's incredibly abusive and manipulative; she goes through men like a shark in chummed waters. Yet, she still gets them to do things for her, like fix her plumbing or babysit her son--after she's thrown them out. It's amazing.
I like him a lot more than I like her. If it weren't for my nephew, I'd have nothing to do with her.
I joked with him at Thanksgiving that I was going to get him a subscription to E-Harmony (he laughed), but I couldn't really do that to him in front of everyone. I think I might go down to PetSmart and see if they have something neat for his new dog.
