1 "Hey there Daily Waggers! Maddox here. A crew of regulars (The Glue Squad) call me the professor, as I come up with ideas for blogs like this one I named, Santa Day!"
2 "Hey Santa...James Dean here. I was hoping you might share some tips on beard care ...also, attached you will find the rest of my list: One catnip toy, snow for Lynn, more craft and reading time with mom, peace on earth and good will towards cats."
3 Rebel, "Santa, my wish is for every pooch to have a human who loves them like my papa loves me!"
4 Rebel, "Santa, you need not be alarmed by my name. On average, I have been very good! The name is a family one and keeps the neighborhood pooches on their toes."
5 Kitty and Delia simply want to say, "We love all the photos of our DW fur-friends, it's fun seeing them...they are all so cute and lovable."
6 "Hi Santa- I'm Coco. I already feel thankful for the gift of having been rescued and adopted...But as long as you're asking...I'd love a new football. My old one has endured a few too many bites and licks and kicks."
7 Frenchie-Pug Abby's list for Santa: "A Warrior Prince cookie, tacos, trips to the duck pond and dog parks with mom, a new vest for Cora belle, more fur for Rebel, lots of cuddle and time for all my Glue Squad friends!"
8 Abby, "Oh and about that coal...I have been mostly good...with a few very minor transgressions... I won't bore you with the details as they are nothing for you to be concerned about..."
9 Dudley Do Right, "Santa...pull up a chair...talk to me about the reindeer crew. I'd like to propose that you consider me for the job...keep an open mind..."
10 Ruby, "I'm already a lucky girl. I have The Glue Squad , my forever home, and lots of toys and food. I am asking for all those friends I left behind in the shelter to find loving homes. Please Santa try and help all the friends still left behind. Also... if I could have 1 new Nylabone, that would be superb. I love you Santa. Love, Ruby Girl
11 Hi Santa, "Im Basil, the Warrior Prince you may have heard about...Since so many DWaggers seem to be requesting Warrior Prince Biscuits, I thought I'd weigh in and let them know I'm watching over them and sending love!"

12 "Santa, please help our fellow shelter critters stay warm and loved like we are, as they search for their furever homes!"
13 Kirby Bear, "Santa, I'd love to get an ample supply of days with my grand-humans..."
14 Missy Chow, getting sentimental about Holiday time.
15 Missy Chow, "Mr. Santa...Please do not take offense at my efforts to emulate you here... I do this with only the utmost respect for your fabulous fashion sense."
16 Missy Chow, "Santa...Please accept my thanks in the form of this very large sock. You may leave any gift items here as a sign that you received my gracious gift..."
17 "I wish more humans adopted from the shelter and I also wish to always keep my fetching girlish figure!"
18 Chloe, "Um Santa...Perhaps you could find me a book that explains why my humans feel the need to affix silly hats and ears to my otherwise beautiful head?..."
19 Zoe says, "Yeah Chloe! I hear ya! Can i borrow that book when you're done reading it?"
20 Zoe, "I'd like to close with a little ditty I wrote for my fellow comrades in fur... if the orchestra could accompany me...
Santa I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year."
21 Zoe, "Santa...perhaps you remember me from when I was a mere 2.5 pounds years ago...Anyhoo, if I may be so bold...This year, T-Bone, Precious, Sophie and I would greatly appreciate a selection of treats, various chew toys and ample TP ...please confirm receipt of this note..."
22 "Santa! wow you snuck up on me there!... um... about the TP...I have to say I’ve been extremely good this year ...It’s not my fault the TP calls my name and the devil in me forces my body to run with the paper."
23 Zoe, "mom...mom...Did you know Santa is coming? yeah...Santa...I'm told he enters via the chimney...can you confirm this so I'm sure not to attack him on evening patrol...I'm working the night shift on x-mas eve so I wanna be sure,..."
24 Santa, "While this may look a bit precarious, I'll have you know that I was merely helping my humans to clear the table... so many crumbs, so little time..."
25 "I wish that all the animals who are spending this Christmas at a shelter get adopted soon and get to live in a loving home with lots of TP to play with...I also wish for peace so that all our military can come home..."
26 "Dear Santa,
Precious, T-Bone and I would like to request a steady supply of snow in which to play... What are your thoughts on that?"
27 Dr. Pia, "Santa, I wish everyone had a great crew of animal loving friends like I do. They provide loving homes for animals in need and even send me thoughtful creative gifts like this cool magnetic flower I received from Lynn of the Glue Squad!"
28 "Santa... I dream of a day that shelters will be empty because all the loyal critters out there are adopted into loving homes..."
