Ho Ho Ho and Happy Holidays! It's time once again for our Photos with Santa and Secret Santa Gift Exchange!
Our favorite "Man in Red", Santa, will be offering the *best seat in the house*, for all good NNJPE Pugs (and some not-so-good ones that just think they are)! Why bother dreaming about sugar plums and treats, when you can bark at Santa directly?!?
The *Pug Shot* Photos with Santa to be taken at this event will be offered at a cost of $5.00 for each 4x6 inch photo or 2 for $8.00; this year's revenue will be distributed as donations to Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge (Rbari), in Oakland, NJ and Hi-Tor Animal Shelter, in Pomona, NY, along with food and supply donations for the "Angel Tree". (Payment is to be made directly to Best Friends the day of the event.)
Along with the photo session, we will be hosting our fun-filled Secret Santa event! Anyone wishing to participate in this event is asked to bring a new, wrapped doggie-related item (or items) valued at approximately $15.00. The item(s) should be something of which can be utilized either by a dog or a dog/Pug lover, so the possibilities are endless! The gifts will then be tagged with numbered tickets, and will then be distributed via a drawing in which each participating member will "win" the gift with the matching number on his/her ticket stub. If you have two Pugs (or more!), bring two gifts and you can draw for two gifts; it's twice the fun!
Of course, your participation in either of these sessions is purely optional; you and your Pug can join us simply for the indoor, off-leash playtime; the choice is yours. Finally; any food or beverage contributions are appreciated, as this will be a fee-free event and our last meetup of the year. Let's celebrate the splendor of the season and the last few days of 2013 with one gala Pug Party; we hope to see you there!
Happy Holidays to Everyone and Everypug!
Ellen, along with our friends at Best Friends!
