The small dog’s Advent invitation: Send Ani your letters to Santa…

Last year in December, Ani, the infamous Small Dog, wrote to Santa, every day for Advent.

It seemed to work, as she got her wish…

This year, her wish is different… she would like to invite her friends to join in.

Ani says:

“I really need your help. She says that if I can post every day for Advent, this indignity will not happen again…”

Send Ani a letter for Santa and she will share it on the blog throughout the month of December. You can also send her your Christmas poems, memories and stories.

To get in touch, please use the form on the contact page or email Ani at

  2. Ani, a pup’s wish should never be buried under the rug. What a good idea (must stop chasing things around here and think how to play along!)

    Ani, those antlers were truly horrible. I don’t blame you for feeling indignant. I’ll see what I can do…or maybe Garfield will send you something?

    Ani is quite sweetly ambitious, and we must spare her the headgear.

    Oh what a lovely idea Sue. I’ve bookmarked this and hope I can partake. I’ve got 2 weeks til publication and a mound of things to get done, and behind in 3 other requests to write, but I’m going to do my best. <3. And of course I'll help Ani by reblogging this. ❤

  6. So cute, Sue! Such a lovely idea full of Christmas spirit! 🙂


  7. What a lovely idea Ani. 🌼


  8. I will see how I get on with my posts. Hope to clear the decks and then pop over again. 😊


  9. What a lovely idea Ani I’m sure Santa will approve!


  10. I look forward to this. LOVE the red antlers!

    Hi Ani, your paw friend, Dante here. I’ll get my two legs to write the letters. It’s a clever idea but you are a clever doggie. Lots of paw love to my friend, Dante Dawg. xxxxxx

  12. Hey Ani! Tink here.

    It’s early-early morning here already and Mom is rushing me along to get to bed before the sun comes back again, but I wanted to tell you I will do my best to help you out here. We two-legses have GOT to present a united front about the hatefulness of decorating us like we were Christmas Trees or dressing us up like it was still Halloween!

    I have already finished my December guest blog for Mom (with a link here, natch), so if she will let me at the computer again I will write my Santa letter and be sure to send it to you rather than addressing it to the North Pole and giving it to Mom to put in the mailbox.
    Woof! TINK


  13. This is my first Santa Paws visit, but I thought I’d try this writing to Santa Paws thing out, so I sent you something yesterday. Lots of licks, Lilie

    Such a cute idea 🙂 I hope Ani gets everything on her Christmas wish list 💕


  15. SO cute! Look forward to reading these. 🐶 🎄 Maybe I could get something together. If it’s still open…


  16. Love the antlers, Ani. They’re so fashionable. 🙂 I’ll have to read some of your wishes. 🙂


  17. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Instead of sending your letter to Santa this year, send it through Ani on Sue Vincent’s blog for a better chance of getting them read! Also I understand that this little black dog is on personal terms with Rudolf who slips her letters into the ‘must grant wish’ pile..
