Check out this list of Puptastic Grreetings for you to use:

Maybe you’ve been through a rough pooch this year, but never mind: on Christmas eve whilst you are waiting for Santa Claws to make an appearance after he Dachshund Through The Snow with Rudolph the Red Nose Retriever, you and your family might enjoy Rockin-a-Hound the Christmas Tree together wearing your Pugly Christmas Sweaters sipping Egg-dog or a glass of Whine and, as the snow falls softly outside, cheering Let it Chow! Let it Chow! Let it Chow! If you’d like to sing a few Christmas carols we’ve got some dog-natured suggestions for you:

  • We “Woof” You a Merry Christmas
  • Oh Little Town of Bethlehound
  • Bark! The Herald Angels Sing!
  • The Fur-st Noel
  • (I’m dreaming of a) White Christmutt
  • O Christmas Treat! O Christmas Treat!
  • Deck the Halls with Bows on Collies
  • There’s No Place Like Bone for the Holidays
  • Pets Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
  • It’s the Most Wonderful Pom of the Year
  • Have Yourself a Furry Little Christmas
  • Have a Holly Collie Christmas
  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Retriever
  • All I Want for Christmas Is to Chew
  • O Come All Ye Fur-ry…
  • Dachshund Through the Snow
  • Feliz Navi-dog
  • O Tannen Bone
  • Let it Chow! Let it Chow! Let it Chow!
  • Rockin-a-Hound the Christmas Tree
  • The Little Drummer Borzoi

Bonefide Canine Christmas Classics

Does Santa Paws know your dog’s been a furry good boy this year? Hopefully, Santa’s Little Yelpers will send something nice for him, otherwise, he might have a bone to pick with Rudolph! Although we won’t be there to wish you a Merry Corgimas ourselves, we hope you won’t be visited by either the Ghost of Winter’s Mastiff or the Ghost of Christmas Fur-ture. It’s a dog-gift-dog world out there and you may be tempted to Pekingese at the presents under the tree, but no Snoopy-ing before the big day!

Over the festive period if you get hungry you could prepare a Charchuwterie board with all the usual treats: bread, cold meats, cheeses, and.. chew toys before you snuggle up with your furry friend and watch a classic Christmas movie such as:

  • It’s a Woof-derful Life
  • Frosty the Doberman
  • Jingle All the Wag
  • National Lampoodle’s Christmas Vacation
  • The Pinscher Who Stole Christmas
  • A Charlie Hound Christmas
  • Meet Me in St. Sloughi
  • Frosty the Yellow Snowman
  • Fire Hydrant on 34th Street



After reading this we hope you are Pawsitively happy and this article un-leashes all kinds of festive joy for you this holiday season. Remember: there’s no place like Bone for the holidays. Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good BITE!
