A Brilliant Christmas Idea.....

I have been listening to the humans around my house and they have been talking bout Christmas and gift ideas for family and for friends etc. They want to know what people want and yet they havent asked me yet. Mom has been talking bout this Black Friday. Not sure why it is Black, maybe the sun isn't shining that day or something but anyway....

Now I do have a Christmas stocking and I do get goodies in my stocking.
Since I have been listening, I started thinking bout what I could do with all my friends. So.....I was wondering how many of you would be interested in a animal gift exchange? I hope this doesn't sound like a dumb idea. I talked to mom bout it and she thought it was cool.

I would take names until Sunday Nov, 22nd, then draw the names on Monday the 23rd and post the who has who list Monday evening. That way you will know who you have and who has you and can get info to them on Tuesday, so if any of your moms are out shopping on Black Friday and find a bargain, then they can get it.

The mail out date will be Dec 15th, so that gives moms time to shop/make anything for your special buddy. Hopefully we all will get our packages within a few days of each other and you post your opening it and what all you recieved. Does this sound like a plan to anyone?

If you are interested, just let me know in the comments and mom will be keepin track. I hope everyone will have fun with this, we are excited here!!


  1. I think it sounds like fun Jazzi - count me in.

  2. Jazzi, how can anyone say no to you! I'm in.
    Good idea!

  3. Jazzi...this sounds like a pretty good idea.

  4. That sounds like a really fun idea. Surprises are (almost) always nice!

  5. I like the idea a lot. Is there going to be a minimum and MAXIMUM amount to be spent? It would cost about 10 plastics or green papers just to mail the pressies. I wouldn't want anyone to ... miss out or be embarassed because of these tight times.

  6. Does around $10.00ish sound ok to everyone? We done want it to be too expensive but just a little few somethings.


  7. Dear Jazzi! Great idea! Consider us three poodles "in"! We could exchange with another dog and for us, a "group" gift would be fine. Lovin' it!! Toby, Ginger & Jeter (as dictated to their Mom, Ina)

  8. I love it! Last year I mailed presents to lots of my pals and momma got all grouchy over the money I spent. This way I can just send to one pal and I would make a new friend.


    P.S. Momma is afraid to leave the house on black Friday. We live just a couple of miles from (gasp) THE MALL and it isn't safe to venture out.

  9. P.P.S Let me know if you want me to talk about it on my bloggy or not.

  10. Hi again Jazzi - I think $10 would be fine & I was going to ask the same thing Mango did - if you would want me to mention it on my blog.

  11. Thats a good idea!! You can count me in, but I do have a question? Some of us have a bunch of animals and some of us have only one or two, what than?

  12. Jazzi, I'm new to the blogging world, and have made some new furiends, and can't wait to get to know many of you even better! I think a gift exchange is a great idea! Count the Funny Farm in!

  13. Hi, Jazzi!
    I'd love to participate but we don't have pet stores here! Hmmmm...
    The toys I have, have been sent to me by my bloggie friends!
    Kisses and hugs

  14. Well, what we could do for groups, is put group names in one pot and single dogs in another, so that was it should work out, groups getting another group and singles getting another single. Sound ok?

    Lorenza, since you dont have pet stores, you can send treats, or make a toy or stuffed animal or decoration of the dog or something for the dog.....ummm like one of your "many" cool dresses. I would love to have a new dress, :-) Just be creative!!

    It would be ok to post it on your blog. The more the merrier and I think this will be really fun.

    Excited in IL

  15. Way cool idea Jazzi Bilbo and I are can out us is separately if you want and each of us will buy some puppy a present!!

    What a rockin' idea!!!!

  16. Oh yah,
    If you have 2 dogs, please let me know if you want to be together or single. Like Dory and Bilbo will be single.

    For groups, let me know if you want to be as a whole group or each dog single. If single, let me know all the names so I can get them listed so no one is left out ok?

  17. Jazzi, I love pressies! Yes please I would like to do it. I will check back for more details. Thank you for a fun idea, you are the coolest!

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  18. Jazzie, we'd love to play!!! Sounds like such a FUN idea!!! We'll just play as a group, since there's 3 of us.

    Woofs and Kisses!

  19. Hi Jazzi not only are you gorgeous you are smart...we like the gift exchange!!! Add Madi to the list. Also what an adorable picture of the children with you on the swing.

  20. PS be sure to mention that Madi is a cat....
    ha!!! I don't think she would know what to do with a rawhide bone. :-)!!

  21. Hi jazzi - we think that is a good idea but we had already decided to buy a present from each of us for some dogs in the rescues where we both came from.
    We wish your mom lots of luck organising it though - sounds like fun.
    love and kisses
    Martha & bailey xxxx

  22. PS We absolutely love your new header pic - very cute!!!!

  23. Jazzi Madi is in total agreement with you....DON'T change/move my stuff!!!
