A Dog News Christmas

Never mind naughty or nice. Are you on the list?

Ho, Ho, Ho!

Merry Christmas! Santa looked down upon the world way up high in his North Pole lodge and saw his many friends (both naughty or nice) saddened by being isolated in their homes away from family, friends and co-workers. He saw the wanderlust in their eyes, even from up here. So he decided the gifts this year would be books, where your imaginations would run wild. You could be amused, beguiled, laugh, cry, be incensed or non-sensed. Think, is the book Santa chose to gift you about you, or is it the title that reminds Santa of you? Or was Santa just stuck and ran out of gift ideas? Of course, part of the fun is guessing what all the gifts mean and, of course, only Santa knows!

But know that they are all given in the spirit of the season and if your material gift isn’t mentioned know you’re in Santa’s heart. With that, Santa wishes you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
