Dear Santa

Thursday, November 29, 2012


I would like a cute frenchie rescue pup to call my own. She must be a rescue and has to be a girl because Eloise is a terrible name for a boy. I can handle a minor issue or two, but let's not have her need surgery like a certain little rescue pup we all know and love. Yes, Buddy–you're perfect, but I had to pay a small fortune to fix that leg of yours. And then there was the time it broke again. And the 9 casts. And all those x rays. And your crazy skin allergies. You also stole my faux fur blanket from Restoration Hardware. But I love you and wouldn't trade you for anything.

So Santa, please bring me a puppy and $5000 to cover any crazy vet bills. And if you're feeling fancy, how about a boyfriend who wants to take both pups (and maybe the trash) out once it starts snowing. Ha. Thank you, sir.

What do you want for Christmas?

  3. Aww these lil frenchie dogs are so cute!! Good for you wanting a rescue dog! There aren't enough people willing to take these lil guys in! =)

    I'd want a lil kitten this Christmas...my boyfriend has three cats I get to play with when I visit his mom's place but I'd love my very own. A rescue would be nice too. Hopefully not the crazy vet bills =P

  5. I love this!!! I've got a friend who has rescued 5 frenchies and they are the best! This Christmas I'd love it if my landlord allowed dogs and Santa could sneak a Golden Retriever under the tree!

  10. I never knew Buddy was hit by a car when you rescued him! That just gave me goosebumps, poor thing! You are his everything I bet. I admire how much you care for animals, because it is time, work and money, but it is so worth it. My next pup has to be a rescue one! There's nothing sweeter than helping an innocent animal, I can only imagine how much you love your little Buddy. Hope Santa brings you another one, because you are an amazing fur mama :)

  17. Eloise, such a pretty name. I relate to the trash thing. I'm so glad it hasn't yet snowed in Minnesota and it's December. I am beyond grateful! ps. hope Santa give you what you want. :)

  19. Aww how sweet! I would love to rescue a pup one day, but unfortunately I don't have the time right now. I'm just not home enough for it to be fair to the dog

  21. Haha this post made me chuckle only cause I can totally relate to the nightmare that is animals running loose around the house! Feel exactly the same though in that I wouldn't change my two little rescue pups (and one kitty) for the world! :) As for the allergies, you've probably already tried everything but I know one of my friends pups has bad allergies and she switched to using this fresh, grain free, raw food delivery service and it seems to have really helped! It doesn't work out that much more expensive than normal dog food and you could always mix half an half to keep costs down... anyway just thought I'd mention it! :) My fingers are crossed that a little Eloise shaped stocking finds it's way to you come christmas morning! :) p.s LOVE that you rescue rather than buy, we need more people like you in the world! Keep up the good work! :)
