Christmas Eve Dilemma

can't be true

No way. That can’t be true!

We have explained to the Little Price that Christmas is still a day away, which means he is facing the ultimate Christmas Eve Dilemma – can he actually be good until the Big Day?


What do you mean Santa knows everything?

stay out of trouble

Maybe if I just don’t move from this spot, I can actually stay out of trouble.

    Alas! I get a huge lump of coal one day a year but I have lots of fun the other 364 days!
    Enjoy your antics all year long.
    Hugs to the rest of the herd and the humans who look after you all.
    A very Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Oh Typhoon! Is that a THRONE I see behind you???

    Oops. I digress… Naughty Shmaughty. In my personal experience, Santa is a fast forgiver. That said, you might want to play it safe for 24 or so…

    Sending our love and wishes teu yeu all for a very Merry Christmas!

    naughty and nice doesn’t apply to our husky friends. They are naturally forgiven by Santa for both their short memories and more importantly, the fact he shunned the natural sled animals for stoooopid reindeer!

    Santa knows… However, in our doggy contracts there is a line that says if Santa doesn’t bring us gifts, the people need to. We are covered.

    Typhoon!! All Siberians are exempt, it is a law when you are born, Santa Naughty List exempt – something about the breed being so useful to Man through the Centuries – ENJOY!!

    And to the rest of the Herd, and Hu’mas too – a very Merry Christmas, Happy Yule and a Blessed New Year, stay safe and healthy!!
