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?

Aw, thanks, pal! I think you're pretty cool too! And I even like "smelly" Ollie! LOL! Thanks for reminding us about helping out the shelters; I'll remind mom to pick up some food! By the way, I'm loving all the cards too! What a great idea! Everyone is soooo creative! Each one is a real treasure! Well, stay warm, neighbor!

We bought 50 of those prepackaged doggie x=mas stockings, they come with toys, treats, food and stuff and brought them to our local no kill shelter. Oh yeah, we bought a bund of kongs too and donated them. Mom had me wear my awful Santa hat when we went!

Dear Mackie,

I love all the water colours you do (it is you isn't it??)!! I hope you get my card soon!! Yes, me, the brilliant Miss Sunshade ...hehehehe!

MUAH!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Sunshade's mum: Hi Mackie, I think your post is great. That is what I have been thinking too. Don't tell Sunshade this, but I think her X-mas present money might be going somewhere else. That girl has everything she needs already anyway, plus a million boyfriends..

Thanks Derby and Bussie! The dogs in your local shelters will be very thankful! Aren't we lucky?

Your pal, Mackie

Miss Sunshade,

Yes, that's me! Not great, but fun to do anyway!
I have seen your posts and your mom is right- you do have a lot of toys and it would be nice if some of your gifts went to the less fortunate pups!
But- what's up with this "million boyfriends" stuff? i'm getting jealous!

Hugs to you!
Mackie

Mackie,
Thanks so much for your card! You and Ollie are real cuties.

I'm glad you reminded my mom about donating. She still needs to make her annual donation to the shelter where she got me. Her company matches it all too :) I'll make sure she buys some blankets also..that's so important.

Dear Mackie,

You don't need to be jealous, because I have so much love to give! Don't listen to my mum, she's no fun!!

Have a great weekend, I made this for you!!
