December's Christmas Cuddle

Hey Hey Party Peeps,

 

It's Christmas Party Season!!! Our babies were VERY upset that they did not receive an invitation to Shawn's work party, even when I tried to explain that the oil and gas industry generally doesn't have much time for dogs. My argument was not well received, and both puppies went to bed early as a result of the argument that ensued...however, mummy did decide to schedule a Christmas Party of their very own with all of their friends, so who's the sucker now??? Come and celebrate my soft-handed parenting style alongside us at The Calgary Mini-Mutts Christmas Cuddle, on Sunday, December 9th, from 2:00 - 3:30 at Waggin Tails!

Our annual doggie gift exchange is an absolute blast, so if you'd like to participate, please bring a wrapped or gift-bagged present for doggies with you and check it in with us upon entry. Don't go overboard, people - we're talking ten to fifteen bucks worth of paraphenalia for dogs. At three o'clock we will do our group-shot, the gift exchange, AND....

The DRAW for our Charity Raffle!!! Tickets will still be available up until 3 pm, and for this item they cost one for ten dollars or 3 for twenty. The prize is 3 MONTHS of poop pick up from your backyard from Poooh Busters. This is your last chance for tickets, so don't forget to bring some extra cash if you are interested in entering. ALL proceeds go toward our AARCS kennel sponsorship goal :)

Finally, Waggin Tails's ever fabulous Susan will be there as usual offering her Ever Fabulous Five Dollar nail trims, so sign up at the front if you need a little trim-eroonie!

That's all for now, folks! Come One, Come Small, to The Calgary Mini-Mutts December Christmas Cuddle!!!

 

Love,

 

Cai'lin & Shawn, Flynnagin & Lilly-Lou, Too, Who is No More Than Two

    Great playgroup; everyone was having a great time including my 3 little one's and myself. Great playgroup again Cai'lin & Shawn! Anne L, I did move someone's jacket from the back of a chair and put it on the fencing behind because a dog had already pee'd on it so I moved it so no further dogs would. I do apologize if it was me who moved your jacket and therefore dropped your scarf on the floor.

    I also want to apologize & thank anyone who cleaned up after any of my 3 chi's; it was very busy with lots of people and dogs and I did find it pretty hard to keep them in my sight all of the time. Again, thank you so much!

      No worries Susan, Thanks for moving it! I didn't know it had been peed on! I got my scarf back tonight so all is good. It is always hard to keep track on your dog much less multiple dogs. I just find I clean up someone's pee and assume someone does the same if one of mine pees. I just can't watch two all the time when they are moving and besides I was having too much fun talking to all the nice people and cuddling all the nice adorable dogs!

    Great party, Everyone!
    Lost and Found: a nice greenish scarf, and one stripey magic-mitt glove. Anyone know who they belong to?
    We raised another $125 toward our AARCS charity goal, putting us about 1/3 of the way there. Thanks, gang! Let's keep it up :)
    Flynnagin and Lilly say thank you for their gifts, a squeaky pneguin (which is already destroyed to Lilly's delight, and a gift card to Petsmart in a cute stuffy holder). Happy Holidays, everyone!!!
    xoxoxoxo!!!

    The meet up was fun as always. I know it's hard to keep track of our fast paced friends. I have tried to set an area around where I am and If I see any doggy messes no matter who's it is I clean it up and hope if my dog it out of eye range someone will do the same. Just a thought

    Casper, Bebe and Franklin had a great time. I was unsure about bringing Franklin but he seemed to do really well. He got to pick the gift out and he was such a good boy he picked one that had 3 packages wrapped up together. So each dog got a package of their own. But they don't get to open them until Christmas

    We have so much fun at these meetups. Bruno as usual slept all the way home and continued his nap however we left his present beside him and when he woke at 7 pm he had a grest time playing with the leopard material squeaky bone also his Christmas Alligtor. Thx secret Santa! Of course he had to get us in on the play.
    Thanks again for organizing these meet ups and Merry Christmas to All. :-)

    I was a bit disappointed as I was on the wait list and someone cancelled last minute and I got the confirmation at almost 1:00 pm and the meetup was at 2:00pm. Unless I was on my phone, I wouldn't have known that I moved from the wait list to attending as it was very last minute :(

    • Cai'lin and S.

      Hi Erika, I understand your frustration and am sorry this has been happening. We are currently working to implement some changes in the new year that will make this less of a problem for people, as well as improve the quality of group as a whole. Stay tuned for updates!

  • Paula D.

    Thank you so much Cai'lin for organizing this fun event. Mikkie is working on his new toy as "we speak". He goes for the squeaky thing first. Once that's demolished the stuffing needs to come out.... He is a good dog, just not so with stuffed animals :)
    Have a wonderful Christmas!!

      Yep, just keep on watching. Unfortunately I don't think everyone will get in, as our waitlist has never been this size before, but I get changes in the RSVP's up until one pm on the day of playgroup, so keep your eyes open. Thanks!

    I am on the waiting list and was wondering if I should just show up anyway??

    December 3, 2012

    • Cai'lin and S.

      Hi Angel! Because there are so many on the wait list, I can't give the go ahead to show up anyway. However, we usually have several spots open up quite close to group, so check your emails frequently! Thanks, Cai'lin

  • Patty M.

    I am going to assume that the gift exchange is for "people" and it can be a generic gift of anything, dog related or not...... see you then! Patty, Louie and Breyer!

    November 22, 2012

    • Cai'lin and S.

      Hi Patty, the exchange is for dogs. I'd better change the meetup details... thanks!

  • Andrea H.

    Hi Cai'lin - just wondering if I'm to +1 for bringing another person or only if I'm bringing more than one dog?

    November 22, 2012

    • Cai'lin and S.

      Hi Andrea, plus ones refer to people, not dogs :)

      November 22, 2012
