Santa Claus is coming!

I got groomed yesterday and now I am ready for Christmas! Mom said that Santa brings extra gifts for little pups who are especially handsome. So here I am, Santa! Hehehehehe!
Like I said, yesterday we went to the groomer and it was a long, long day. Grandma and Grandpa dropped Ollie and I off at 8am and we weren’t ready to be picked up until 3:30 pm. There were three other Bearded Collies there too. I see now why Ollie likes to go so much. It’s kind of funny, but the place where we go, they raise and show Bearded Collies and Welsh Terriers. They have the same taste in doggies that my folks do! Mom says she feels really good about us going there since they really know how to do us up right and they are so nice to us. Funny thing though, when Grandma came to pick us up she asked how we were and the lady told her that Ollie bit her! Yes, Ollie! Now, Ollie is a bearded collie and all and everyone thinks he’s so sweet, but he does have a habit of biting when he is groomed and someone hits a mat or a sensitive spot on him. See! Everyone thinks I’m the biting dog! Ha, Ha! Thankfully, Ollie didn’t break her skin and she said she was okay. She also reported that I was a complete gentleman! Double Ha, Ha!
So now I’m clean and handsome and ready for Santa!

Here comes Santa Claus!
Here comes Santa Claus!
Right to Mackie’s house!
Santa’s bringing a duck and a ball
and a great big squeaky mouse!
Mommy is singing and I am springing
in fantastic wiry height.
I’ll get a ball and new teddybear,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight!

I've been Christmas tagged!

I've been tagged by Butchy and Snickers in a new Christmas game. Here are the rules of the game:

The player of this game starts with "3 things he/she would love to get for Christmas" and also has to list "3 things he/she definitely does not want to get for Christmas". Then he/she tags 5 friends and list their names. The ones who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. And the one who tags need to leave a comment that says "you've been Christmas tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

So here goes-
Three things I would love to get for Christmas...hmmnnn,
1. The first thing I would like to get for Christmas is the end to all puppymills.
2. The second thing I would like to get for Christmas is a warm and loving home for all doggies on Earth.
3. My final Christmas wish is for a new honking duck for me every week! hehehehe!

The three things I definitely do not want for Christmas are:
1. Another brother.
2. A diet (mom has been belly is getting kinda big lately!)
3. Any more unresponsible doggy breeding!

Okay, so now I'll tag-

Comet and Blu

How The Mackie Stole Christmas

He flew down the steps and into the yard
He did it so fast, it caught them off guard.
He didn't think twice; he didn't take pause
It took just a minute, but he killed Santy Claus.

Christmas cards and Christmas spirit

It's finally December! Almost Christmas and boy, am I getting some Christmas cards! So far, I've gotten about 20 Christmas cards from all over the world and right here close to me. I even have friends who not only live in the same sate, but right here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. That's Sue and Derby. Derby is another WFT and a really cool one at that!
I have gotten cards from Australia (including from my sweetheart, Opy!), a card from England, a card from Canada and many from here in the states. This is oh, so cool! I can't say for sure, but I think my Miss Sunshade came up with the idea....she is brilliant after all. All these Christmas cards are really making me anxious for Christmas! I can't wait to see what my mom and dad will get me and what Santa will bring me too! But, I have to say that it makes me think about all the little doggies out there without homes, without food and proper medical care. A good friend of mine just told me that at this time of the year many of the local shelters are in need of blankets to keep the doggies from lying on the cold cement. They also need canned doggie food to help the malnourished pups get some weight on. Many of us have old blankets in our closets that we could share, right? And many of us could pick up a case of canned dog food when we are at Wal-Mart or something, right? What about all those Christmas gifts? Don't you think that you could shop a little bit less and give a little bit of money to your local SPCA or Humane Society? It all counts! How about it guys? Let's plan to help the less fortunate pups this year! Whatta say?
