Campaigns With Christmas: Humble

Chris here!

Today's topic for my Campaigns With Christmas post is the word "humble". Because Google is the most handy thing in the entire world, let me go ahead and search the best definition of the word humble for you: having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's own importance.

It never gets old!

Okay, so being humble means viewing yourself as you are or equally comparing yourself to those who have low or average standards. Even if you have some form of importance/popularity/authority, you should still be humble!

Being humble also means being honest. So I can be humble with you right now, let me tell you...I'm not humble when I see those nasty tree rats. I say things like "I'm the world's scariest dog, even if I look like a stubby sausage! I am pawsome, and you are no match for my pawsomeness! Get out of my yard or you'll be chopped liver!" Well, if being humble is being honest, than I guess it's okay that I say those things. Oh, wait, now my mom is saying I'm getting off topic and I'm acting anything but humble.

Let's move on. Why is it impawtent for me to be humble if I become mayor of Blogville?

I won't boss everyone around or do anything else that abuses my power as mayor.

I won't look at everyone else as lesser than me, but instead I'll lower my standards to not be some sort of boss or leader, but as a friend and a normal dog.

I'll be honest and down to earth with every peep, doggy, or kitty, or other critter instead of boasting about my role as mayor and boasting about my natural Dachshund handsomeness. (That last one will take some work!)

I think it's very impawtent to be humble all the time, and I'll do my best to be the humble, loving dog you all know...and I apologize in advance if I happen to boast about my Doxie handsomeness (as stated above) and my pawsome tree rat exterminating skills.

  3. We think a lot of people could work on being humble. But don't be so humble you don't acknowledge your own greatness!

  4. That is so kind of you to protect your mum!

  5. Chris....girlz love guyz who are protective and loving and cherish their moms!!
    Just sayin' hugs madi your bfff

  6. Chris, I don't think referring to your natural Dachshund handsomeness is boasting. It is simply being straightforward and stating the honest truth. (Same applies when I mention my own wire fox terrier good looks).
    Toodle pip!

  7. You should be running fur President of your country. You have the qualities of a grrreat leader!

  9. Christmas you are the smartes dachshund ever... imagine all people would act this way... wow we had a wonderful world!!!

  10. Chris, humble was never one of Lexi's traits. I think she would tell you to never lower your standards, especially for yourself, but to understand that not everyone else can meet them. Best wishes as this election draws closer and closer. Amy
