Christmas is creeping up on us and it will be here before you know it!

Every year, I post the general thoughts of bringing a pup home for Christmas.  Most "dog" people will tell you to do it before or after, but not right on the holiday . . . why?  Christmas can be a stressful time of year, whether it be good stress or bad stress! Pups have a lot of stress just transitioning from leaving us to going to a new home.  Adding the holiday into the mixture can make your pups transition a little more difficult.  With that being said . . . when my kids were little I wanted Santa to bring a pup, so, I did it and I get it.  If there is a way to give an early gift and let the pup have a little time to acclimate to their new surroundings and family, that would be ideal.  If you really have to have a Christmas pup, I understand. 
I have done my best to get all the links updated with pups that will be ready from now till Christmas.  As you know, I cannot call Santa and place an order for specific breeds or genders.  As my granddaughter says "You git what you git, don't throw a fit!"   There might be a few more, there might be a few less, but this is it from now til the end of the year. 
I do not take deposits without you actually seeing the pup.  What I do, is take names and numbers and place you on the list for that particular litter.  When it gets close to the time they are ready to leave, I contact everyone on the list in the order that I received the calls and schedule appointments accordingly.   I charge a flat fee of $25.00 along with a 50% deposit to hold a puppy if you come to choose your pup but don't want to take it home until Christmas.  The reason for the fee, is they usually end up getting another immunization and I am paying help to take care of them.  Feel free to call or email with questions or to get on the waiting lists for upcoming pups.  Believe it or not, I have quite a few people on the Christmas list already!
