Graybie Baby Takes Santa to Task!

Uh oh! Time for another letter to Santa. This time Graybie Baby is taking the helm. And I’m thinking after this, he’s gonna be on the Naughty list. Actually, maybe all of us will! YIKES!

Graybie is taking Santa to task!

MEOW, Santa!

Hope this letter finds you well. I want to start by apologizing for the letters sent by other members of my family. They are a bit eccentric, to say the least. But what can ya say, they’re family, and since I’m not allowed outside, I’m stuck with them.

I’ve been trying to think of something to ask you for, but to be honest, I don’t really see the point. I mean, you’re a cash cow for consumerism, and there’s no place in that kinda world for a dreamer like me. If I asked you for something that could be bought, like a toy or a treat, you are Johnny-on-the-spot.

But humans and animals alike have been asking you for years for a little peace and understanding on this earth, and to be blunt, you just can’t seem to deliver.

Like, every year that I’ve been around, I’ve specifically asked you to NOT give animals as presents to children. And every year, you go ahead and do it anyway. And come the end of January, those animals will be banished to the backyard, or surrendered to shelters and rescues that are already overflowing with cute little dogs, cats, rabbits, and other companion animals that just didn’t quite make the grade.

Really, old man, it’s time for you to get with the program. How about getting out of the pockets of pet shops and puppy mills, and take a stand for once in your life. Why not make this the year you stop giving out live animals as gifts.

Of course, I won’t hold my breath waiting for THAT to happen.

  2. Oh No! I will be surprised if Santa doesn’t take back everything you got last year for this blog. He is a little sensitive and you may have just hit his take back bone. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

  7. Can I copy your letter and send it to Santa with my name on it? I’m always sad when I see the “no pets allowed” signs, but on Santas bag I would like it .

  10. Well greybie baby, I think maybe you should ask Santa to deliver stuffed animals to the houses asking for pets. Maybe that will keep extra pets out of the cold or shelters next year.

  11. What a brilliant way to get the message across. Pets are not toys to discard when we have had enough.

  12. Whoa, you not only look like our Mort, you pack a punch like him too! Good going, you really let old Santa have it with both barrels! We need to get back to the real spirit of Christmas, lets all get out there and do some good deeds like you guys do everyday!
    Thank you and Merry Christmas!

  17. I agree with you Graybie. Sadly, Santa sold out to commercialism years ago.

  18. Spot on about the commercialisation of Santa :(

  19. You GO Graybie! That’s tellin’ him!

  20. Wow, you’re on fire Graybie Baby. Just hearing your name will certainly make Santa consider the logic in your words.

    By the way, here’s something you might just consider doing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQB-eNJmVSw (just jump to 00:17

All About Me!

Hi! My name is Rumpy, and I am an Alaskan Malamute. I used to live in Middle Tennessee, but now my family and I reside in southeast Alabama. I have this cool blog that I started in 2011. Here at rumpydog.com we talk about all things animal, with a focus on animal welfare and responsible animal companion guardianship. But we also like to throw in a heaping helping of cute! cute! cute! I mean, how could you look at me and not melt, right?

My story? Well, I was found on the side of a busy street. Jenny thought she would help me find my home, but nobody claimed me. So now I live with her. She's a pretty good ole' gal, but she is mighty stingy with the dog cookies. *sigh*

There are also some cats- they each have their own story. June Buggie is their chief spokesperson. He is 16 years old, crotchety, and not afraid to say what's on his mind.

All writings and photos are the copyright property of Jenny Threet (unless the writer is a guest blogger, in which case it is the property of that guest blogger) and may not be used without permission.
