Its Gift Exchange Time: 2016

Christmas Gift Exchange: Yep, thats right...its time to get signed up. Santa Paws is coming to town!!
This is our 5th yr now and its always so much FUN!!!
Most of you know how this all works but for new ones...Let me explain. There are 2 ways to sign up: Singles or as a group.
1. Singles buy for another single dog and the limit is $10.00
2. Groups will buy for another group of dogs and the limit is $20.00 *****************************************************************
You will be assigned a partner and that will come out on the Christmas Exchange list that will be posted on my blog. At that get into contact with your partner and exchange gift ideas, etc. We ask that all mailings should be out by Dec 10th to make sure that it arrives on time. Some of you mail early and that is fine too. It is up to you and your mom want to open your gift when it comes or wait until Christmas. PLEASE....Don't sign up unless you know fully that you can follow through..This is SO Important!!! We have had dogs stiffed in the past and it makes my very Mom spastic when that happens. We realize that things can come up so if for some reason, you cant fulfill your gift then please let us know so that we can find another partner or make other arrangements.
The deadline to sign up is Sunday Nov. 13th.
The list will come out on Tuesday. Nov 15th.
This will give you about 3 1/2 wks to buy and get your gift sent to your partner.  
This deadline is very Firm!!  
It is so hard to keep adding names later on and there will be several reminders so that Moms have time to get your name in. We just want to have fun shopping and buying that "special" gift for our "special" friend.
Email my mom at dcraftsalot(AT) and let her know if you are in single or groups!
And I know some of you don't mind having a partner outside of the US. If so, please let us know in the e-mail too.  I have it on my sidebar also. That's about it.....Go get signed up and Go....Shop till you drop!!
And Dont forget to sign up for the Christmas card exchange. We are accepting names until November 6th. Click on the Blogville Mailbox on my sidebar for card information!!

Addi here.....

To give you the corn update.
Here's an inside look
Still just a tad green

Have a great Sunday.

Final Debate Tuesday

Welcome to the final debate Tuesday. I am running with Christmas and he is really a great guy. I believe in him and he wants to keep Blogville a fun, friendly and happening place. There are only 2 weeks left until Election Day. We have been asked questions and we want you to know as much as you can so that you can about us.
1-For each of the candidates and their running mates - if you could meet with anyone, living or dead, who would you like to meet?  
Oh I have met so many friends in the furs at the BAR and I loved it. Someone that I would really liked to have met was Remington. We both share a love for footballs and I think that he would be a blast to hang with.

2-We would like to know what fun things each candy date has in store for Blogville. What about a blogville christmess pawlender? maybe with 24 funny posts , so the time isn't too long while we wait for santa :o)

Christmas and I just love yes I do see parties in the future. The Christmas pawlender sounds great. While we are waiting for Santa.... you cant have a great party without.....
3- If you win, will you replace the entire administration or will you reappoint those who wish to stay in their pawsitions?     
Christmas and I would go over the positions and see who would like to stay and who wouldn't. I know that if positions need to be filled that Christmas and I would fill it with very capable animals.
 4- I have have a question for both candidates, who is your hero and what superpower do you wish you could have? 
Oh man!!! Thats a great question. I think that My hero is my Mom. She took me in and has been so patient with me with all my anxiety issues. Our moms  do so much for us, walkies, belly rubs, getting new toys or bubbles in my case and just really taking care of us when we are sick and watching out for us.

My Super power? 
I wish that I could make sure that every doggie or kitty would always have a good home and that animals never had to be treated badly by mean people.
That is such an awful thing. Chris and I want  to be good neighbors.

 The Election is just 2 weeks away. Christmas and I would love to have your vote and we will work our very hardest for you!! Thank-you!!!
Drop on over to see the other Candy dates: Arty at Dory's Backyard

We need the POTP here.
Remember Little Miss Pip squeak?
See how small she is? She is so small that she fits under the couch.
and she fits right between the bars on my gate at my house. Well...this morning at her house, she went with her mom to the basement to assist with the laundry. I guess she got bored with it and went investigating on her own right behind the washing machine and her mom didn't even notice. She is really quick like that.
Anyways, her mom said.....Come on Piper and then she realized that she was eating mouse poison. She ate 3 times the amount for her size. Her mom rushed her to the Vet DR ASAP and they had to give her morphine so they could pump her stomach. She was there all day getting sick. They think they got it all out but now she is being monitored tonight to make sure that she doesn't have seizures or convulsions. She has to have some meds every few hours tonight. Piper is just 12 wks old. Hopefully she can come home by tomorrow night.
So if you could send healing vibes to lil Piper...I'd be very appreciative.
We really do get along good just don't tell her that ok?

Vice Mayoral Debate Tuesday

WELCOME.... to the Vice Mayoral Debate Tuesday. I am so glad that you all are here to join in. We have been asked questions so on with the responses!!
1. Have you had experience with pawlitics in Blogville before?
Oreo: I have not had previous experience with pawlitics. Although it does interest me and I wanted to support Christmas. I have had the pleasure of serving as Christmas's campaign manager. 
Mabel: I do not have previous experience in Blogville pawlitics. However, my siblings, Mr Bailey and Hazel, along with Angel Greta were the campaign managers for our current Mayors, Murphy and Stanley. They helped run the successful campaign under the business name B,H and G Management. It was during this campaign that Bailey got to know Dory and they.... well I guess that story is for another time.

2. Explain how your personality and your candy date's personality compliment each other to make the pawfect team.
Oreo: Christmas and I have never met in the furs but we seem to have a natural connection. We just kinda get each other and we work very well together.  We did have the opportunity to travel this year and meet many of you right where you live your everyday lives. We got along great and had so much fun with those that we visited.
Mabel: Arty and I just seemed to "click" from the start. We like the same things, we like to have fun, we both like our monkey toys and we like to do zoomies. When Arty and Dory visited us at the PugRanch last June, we started zooming like we had always known each other in the furs. Arty always makes me feel special which gives me confidence in myself and I hope I help him feel the same way. Together we can do great things!

3. How will you continue to support your candy date if he becomes mayor?
Oreo: If Christmas were to me mayor...I would support him fully and do whatever I could to help him he is such a great guy. 
Mabel: When Arty and I had our meet in furs he shared with me his hopes and plans for Blogville should he become Mayor. It will be my job to help him see his dreams for Blogville come true. Whether he needs someone to help spread news, or someone he can talk to and bounce ideas off of, or just someone to be by his side, I will be there for him - especially if he wants to do some zoomies!. He is my guy!

4. What skills will you bring to Blogville as the Vice President?
Oreo: Skills....well..besides working together well...I bring the fun part to our team. We are a great team to keeping Blogville a fun place. After all...I do have my own pawsonal Bubble machine!!!! Our team will have fun and laughter. And...anytime anyone wants to drop in our office we can turn the machine on and give it a whirl...Im just sayin...
Mabel: I have been attending training classes since I was a pup. Earlier this year I passed the Canine Good Citizen test and in August I completed my Rally Novice Title. I also have two qualifyiing scores towards my Beginner Novice Obedience Title. In addition to that I am also very skilled at getting my peeps up early in the morning so I can have breakfast. I begin by smothering them with kisses and if that doesn't work I grab the covers and pull them off. I am very good at keeping the peeps on schedule!

5. Why did you decide to join the Blogville Pawlitical race with your Candy Date??
Oreo: I started out being campaign manager and I could see how awesome Christmas was so when he asked me to be his VP it was a no brainer. Christmas loves Blogville and wants to keep it great and add to it with his own personal stamp. He wants to keep it friendly and fun and welcoming to others and I want to be a part of his mission.
Mabel: I decided to join the Blogville Pawlitical race with Arty for a few reasons. First, I think Arty would make a great Mayor and I wanted to support him. I also thought of it as a way to give back to the Blogville community that has been so supportive to our family in good and in sad times. That is the best thing about Blogville - how much we are there for each other. If Arty and I can help even more anipals feel welcome in Blogville it would be pawsome. If you want to make a difference, you have to get involved!

6. Of course, we are sure Blogville is dying to know, what is your most favorite toy and why?? 
Oreo: My favorite....ummmm thats tough cuz i have several. I LOVE water and bubbles and balls. If I hafta choose....I'd say balls. I'm a sucker for any type or size ball. I pop em, chase em and chew em. Balls are awesome!!
Mabel: I love my monkey, most specifically I love my monkey's tail. I love to chew on it and get it all soggy and wet and then share it with Mom or Dad - they really love that. Mom has had to repair the tail a few times but it is still hanging in there. BOL! I also love my Chuck It Frisbee. I can run fast and chase it down and sometimes I catch it before it touches the ground. I like a toy that has ears to chew on, well I guess you could say I love to play and chew on my toys! !

We would very much appreciate your vote for Christmas!! We both promise to do our very best for Blogville and keep it Fun and Friendly. So....Vote..Christmas!!!
Make sure to visit:
Arty's at Dorys backyard,  Mabel at the Idaho Pug Ranch and Christmas at Paw Province.

Thanks for coming and have a Great Day!!!

National Taco Day

Today is the wonderful Taco Day. This was my 2nd Taco Day. My taco was Bacon and Cheese.....I love anything bacon!!
At first...I sniffed it to see what was in it.
I couldn't wait any longer to dig in.....
It was soo....yummy. Thank-you to Miss Jazzi for creating this holiday. We all enjoy our tacos almost as much as you used to. Mom says that she was the Taco Queen!!!
How was your Taco? There's still time to get it in today and get it posted.
