Dear Santa Paws...

Sunday, November 18, 2007

Hi! My name is Ruby, nice to meet you. But, um, you know that already don't you? Just like you also know when I've been good or bad and when I'm sleeping and awake. This frankly, is kinda creeping me out, but I'll go with it because everyone says you are a pretty cool guy.

I really don't remember much about Christmas last year because I was still a wee little pup. I mean we didn't have a special tree in the house (which sounds kinda fun) and I always get prezzies so actually to me, EVERYDAY seems like Christmas. I'm a lucky pup. I have a great Mom, a great family, lots of friends, a nice place to live, lots of food and toys and my very own blogging machine to talk to my many bloggy friends! What more could a pup ask for?

My Mom says it really isn't polite to ask for things...but said this one time it would be ok, so here goes...

1) World Pizza...Mom said my Auntie Joey always asked for that every year when she was a pup. Having pizza everyday would be fun, wouldn't it? And to have enough for the whole world, well, then no pup or hooman would ever go hungry. (Ruby's Mom: Um, Ruby, that was 'World Peace', not pizza. Ruby: Oh, I guess that makes more sense, huh?) OK scratch that Santa, I want 'World Peace'...and a little pizza every now then would be nice too.

2) Health and Happiness to everyone...especially my Mom. Sometimes Mom works WAY to hard and we don't get to spend as must time together and that doesn't make either of us too happy. AND when Mom works too hard, she doesn't take care of herself like she should. I know she wouldn't want me to say it, but it is true. So Santa, maybe knocking a little sense into my Mom for Christmas would be a good idea, is that possible?

3) You seem to be a pretty powerful guy, so is there something you can do about all those pups (hooman pups too) who don't have homes and families to love them? That would make me REAL happy. There shouldn't be anypup out there without someone to love and take care of them.

4) A bed...ok, I was trying not to be materialistic, but I made a mistake (but I guess you know that All Seeing One). I'm a big girl now and think I deserve a bed. I promise to try and not chew if you could work on that, that would be great.

and finally...

5) That all my friends and family have a very happy and safe holiday season.

OK, Santa, that's it. I hope you can take care of all this stuff and if there is a bill associated with it, just ask my Mom, she has this magic plastic card that takes care of stuff like that. Mom says you like cookies, let us know what kind you like and we'll leave you some...might I recommend the salmon cookies. They are just delicious. Thanks!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Your letter to Santa is pawsome. Yes, Peace on Earth would be great. I think Santa should get you a new bed, the floor is to hard for your precious body. By the way, does Mom let you roam free during the times she is not home?

Love hugs and belly rubs


pee ess what does Mom want for Christmas, a puppy? Ha, ha

Love ya lots,

Hey Ruby, Can you ask for world peace AND world pizza? I don't think there would be anything wrong with both.


2shibas said... 1:08 PM

Oh, Ruby. You are *so* sweet and selfless to ask for such nice things from Santa. A proper bed is the LEAST you deserve in return for your kind-heartedness. We'll keep our paws crossed that he pulls through for you. Keep us updated!

Hi Ruby

Great Blog! You are so beautiful!


Gus said... 4:56 PM

Great letter Ruby, and I think that World Peace and World Pizza go hand in hand, because it is easier to be happy and peaceful if you have a belly full of pizza!


Joe Stains said... 6:17 PM

what a great list Ruby!!! you definitely deserve a new bed, and some pizza. In fact, I deserve some pizza too!

Luckie Girl said... 9:36 PM

Hey, Ruby Bug!!!

Would you like to write *my* letter to Santa Paws??! You are so eloquent and sweet. No way is he going to be able to resist you and your requests.

Personally, I like the idea of world pizza. Maybe if we had that the world peace situation would just fall into line.

Goober love & crazy smooches,

Pee Ess
I saw that a big boxer-looking pupboy told you that you were bootiful! Well, HE'S SO RIGHT!! It's obvious he has good taste!

Those are some fantastic wishes Ruby! Our Mom would love World Pizza...especially if that World was in Pittsburgh. She's a Pizza Freak. Good for us! We get the crust.

We've got to work on our letters to Santa. Only 6 weeks to go!

I asked for materialistic stuff so its okay !!

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said... 8:55 AM

oh Ruby, that is an amazing list of things for Christmas!

I feel real bad cos I did not give you an award today......but blogger was being awful and kept shutting us out, Jeannie nearly threw the computer outta the window, she shouted and she actually swore (I covered my ears!)

The only problem with awards is that we would like everyone to have one!

And yes, my head is rather too big now, so will have to keep a low profile so I can board Aire Ruby once more! We have the bestest times with you and your airline!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Great letter Ruby! Now, I am going to send mind waves to your mom to get you a BED!!!

Lacey said... 2:00 PM

That was a great letter Ruby - and you look so cute too. I hope you get your wish for world pizza.

Puggle Preston said... 3:02 PM

Ruby, you are such a kind lady. I am sure Santa will work his magic, especially harder on the pizza one.


Bella the Boxer said... 6:44 PM

Ruby, I'm sure the big guy is listening and will bring you a new bed. I hope he can take care of the other things, too. World peace, health and happiness are something everyone deserves! (but a world pizza with Snausages on top would be good, too)

xoxo - Bella

Jessica said... 5:55 AM

We love your letter to Santa Paws. You have a great list and it's OK to ask for a bed for yourself too Ruby.

We hope you get that bed.

Love, Seadra and Zoe
