Dear Santa. The ask.






Dear Santa.

In following a cue from my human, I am sending this request at the last minute.  I didn't see a deadline on your website, so I am assuming you are taking requests until later this afternoon.

Before I get to my "ask" I thought I should share with you a list of names of dogs who I know should be on your "Nice" list.  I am not putting the names of me or my "brothers" on the list - I am sure you already KNOW we have been nice.  Most of the time.  OK.  Some of the time.  OK.  Once in a while.  OK.  But we should get SOME credit for TRYING.

Here is a list of dogs that have generally been good this year..I’m sure there are others - and my apologies to any I am forgetting!!! My list includes:

Alfie, Ally, Ammo, Angel, Ares, Arwen, Baxter, Bayka, Beau, Bella, Bisia, Bloom, Bosley, Brandy, Bree, Brick, Brigette, Buzz, Chievie, Chimo, Conner, Creidim, Dharmah, Dipper, Diva, Dixie, Dorey, Dudley,Dusza, Ed, Edy, Fanny, Fareyn , Flash, Flicka, Flirt, Flo, Frania, Fudgee, Fynn, Gatsby,  Gipsy, Goro, Greyson, Guru, Gus, Hally, Hattie, Hector, Heidi, Henry, Holly, Hudson, Icelyn, Jack, Jackson, Jagger, James, Jasmine, Jerome, Jessy,Jip, JJ Jones, Justice, Kate, Katja, Katt, Kazi, Kiszka, Lafayette, Lee, Letty, Levon, Liam, Lisia, Lizie, Logan,Loki, Lukasz, Mac, Maddie, Maggie, Maxime, Meadow, Meg, Merlot, Mia, Milo , Miranda, Miri, Moo, Moril, Murray, Nara, Nelson, Nik, Oly,Panda, Patch, Patof, Panda, Noah, Paulinka, Piper, Rigger, Romeo, Romi, Rosalie, Rosie, Ruby, Sally , Scarlett, Shadow, Sherlock, Sinead, Solo, Sophie, Stacio, Stella, Takoda, Taz, Teddy, Teigan, Thor, Tia, Tilly,?Tip, Usha, Vera, Wally, Watson, Wiggles, Winston, Wookie, Yuengling, Zan and Ziggy

I trust that you will be giving ALL of them some special treats.  It's hard work taking care of humans - and all of these canines have done an exceptional job.  

Now for my ask.... And you know... I looked at my ask from last year...AND the year before ...and I hate to be boring - but I think they bear repeating....and I will ask for the very same thing...and one other thing...but that’s a secret - although Santa I know YOU know what it is...

I am again asking for something for every person (and dog) who is reading this blog.  I ask that they share the joy and happiness that Christmas is all about.  A smile, a handshake, a phone call, a hug – realizing that Christmas ISN’T about the presents – but about those moments that you share with others.  Human OR canine.  OK. Cats too.  And ferrets.  And rabbits.  But not snakes. OK. Snakes too.  But just for today. Even porcupines.  But just don't hug them.

Santa I ask for HEALTH, peace and happiness within the hearts of those reading this – even if just for a moment.   And that feeling of pure joy – that we dogs know ALL about.  That’s what I wish for. 

So be careful in your ride tonight.  Buckle up.  Put on a helmet. Stay safe.  Oh.  And we'll try not to eat the cookies we leave out for you - like we did last year...

Wishing a very Merry Christmas to all!!!
