Our group had our annual Christmas party today. This is where we all get together and have obedience training, all the puppy raisers bring food and they eat, play games, and us puppies have our pictures made with Santa Claus. It was a cold morning with a little mist here and there.
It was so much fun getting to see everyone since this is our only meeting this month, to get to play together, and to meet our newest arrival in our group, Spunky. He is a black lab and, boy, his name sure fits. He does have a lot of spunk!
We started the morning off with a little obedience training to get all of our wiggles out, then, one-by-one, we had our pictures made with Santa. I liked him and his big red suit. The baby even liked Santa too and she had a picture made with me and him. After the pictures, we all sat down at the tables which had red and green tablecloths and snowflake patterns with little Christmas trees that had dogs bones tied on them (my mom did this part) and had our coordinator and a helper handed out gift bags for all of the pups. The gift bags had treats and other odds and ends things in them. The raisers ate and played a game of Secret Santa where everyone brings a gift and exchanges them all by the use of numbers. It seemed really fun because you could either pick a present that hadn't been opened or you could steal someone else's if you wanted it. They all laughed and had a good time playing that. The party lasted for a good while and then everyone departed.
I will post some pictures soon.
Puppy hugs, kisses, and warm wishes this holiday season,
