AAarrrggghhhh - Christmas is creeping up on us fast!

I am not a humbug, but I have been getting calls all day on Christmas pups and in my head it is still September and I guess I haven't been thinking Christmas.  Although, I have already attended my first holiday luncheon!
I do know exactly what pups I will have between now and the end of the year.  Once they are spoken for, that is it.  I cannot call Santa and ask the elves to make more puppies. 
Last year, I posted my thoughts about getting a pup on Christmas.  I know lots of people do it, I know lots of people will want to do it this year and though I don't think it is the very best time; in order not to be a hypocrite (I got a pup on Christmas Eve for my kids when they were little), I do get it.  A client last year had a great idea.  I was not familiar with the "newer" Elf on a Shelf concept.  She clued me in and asked me to help her out.   Her little girl got a note about 2 weeks before Christmas telling her to visit my address for a big surprise.  When she got here, I was all excited and told her that she would never believe who visited me that day.  I told her that I heard a bunch of racket out in the yard and sleigh bells and a big Ho, Ho, HO! and there the Big Man was standing at my doorway.  He explained to me, that it was much too cold on Christmas Eve to be traveling with puppies and asked if I would help.  The expression on this little girls face was priceless.  I would be happy to do it again and again.
IF you really need to surprise the kiddos on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, I would suggest choosing your pup and putting a deposit down to hold the pup.  You can pick up until 4 pm on Christmas Eve.  I do charge an extra $25.00 holding fee, in addition to a 50% deposit.  The hold fee covers us caring for your pup and if the pup is due for another vaccine, that will be administered as well.  The balance is due at time of pickup. 
We will have a whole bunch of pups available, I am not going to update the links just yet, but here is a list of the breeds.  Bichon poos, Boston Terriers, Cavapoos, Chihuahuas, Cockapoos, Maltipoos, Morkies, Poms, Poodles, Pugs, Schnauzers, Schnoodles, Shihpoos, Shih Tzus, Yorkies and Yorkipoos. 
If you are thinking of any of these pups, make sure you give me a call to get on the waiting list.  You can read how my waiting list on the link to the right.  Look forward to a happy, healthy and joyous holiday season for all and of course for the PUPS.
