Someone who is participating in the SS will contact you and ask you to ask their recipient what they like or don't like,  and what their dog likes or dislikes.

You then come onto this forum to ask that question without giving away the identity of the SS.

While it is not required, it seems tradition has it done in the form of a poem. But many are just not poets, so you don't have to do it that way.

Here's a quick cheesy example:

Topaz and Mary,  I've come your way,

As Santa asked me on this special day

To ask does Mary like chocolate and Topaz chicken

I need to know as this plot thickens....

 

Ok, get the idea?

I'm happy to be an elf!

Kendra, devoted walker of Lucia (Larking About x Anastasia) and her son Henry (Tom Jones: Great Son x Lucia).

Missing Badger (Vf Get R Done: Quicksand Slip x Ll Tee el See), 5/7/04 - 2/20/14, who opened our hearts and our home to greyhounds,
    Kenzie (Slatex Kenzie: Randy Handy x Slatex Chrisy), 4/16/03 - 10/29/14, who really knew what a good dog she was,
    and Falcon (Atascocita Sabat: Dodgem by Design x Atascocita Barb), 9/13/10 - 1/31/20, who was grumpy and snarky but eventually a little bit cuddly, too.

Running errands for Saint Nick!

GR8kids   aka   Kathy & Bo!

Eeeny, meeny, miny, moe....

What treats or toys might suit Bo?

And Kathy, sweet Kathy...don’t shed a tear!

Treats will be coming for you too, my dear!

We just need to know if you’ve got an allergy?

And shall it be savory?

Or sweets from the bakery?

If, you please, Shine does like chicken, sweets and cheese.  She like BIG toys she can drag around.  The bigger the better she even pulls on the ground.  We don't do Christmas, Hanukkah is our choice.  For Christmas carols we have no voice.  Miss Shine weighs 69, but she looks fine in a pinch.  I would say her length is medium or a 29 inch.  What ever Santa brings will make her happy and she would share with her brother as he gets yappy.  Thanks.

Oh, pardon me for that mistake!
We hope your Hanukkah will be just great.
Thank you for answering--in verse, no less!
Consider this elf most impressed.

O Emerald, o Emerald,
What gifts would warm your Christmas cold?
What colors and designs devine
Make your black fur amp up the shine?
Do you love to chew on anything?
What treats put jangle in your jing?
How long and tall and slim are you?
Will you want to share with all your crew?
And Mary Pat, o Mary Pat
What makes your heart go pit-a-pat?

Oh sweet St Nick....I am sorry to say I had to send Bo to the rainbow bridge yesterday...my heart is broken, and I am dogless for the first time in 11 years.  I don't want to mess things up so I will do it for my friend's grey Mookie.  She is 7 yrs old, a small bossy brindle girl.  She loves stuffies.  She has no food allergies or limitations.  She likes to go for walks and bark in the yard. 

 I love tea any flavor but ginger or with hibiscus,  and love dark chocolate, nuts (not pistachio or cashew)  and sweets of course.  I love popcorn too!    I hope this helps. 

Kathy, Bo (SK's Bozo), and Angels Storm (Greys Big Storm), Grace (Rise to Glory) and Sky(Greys Sky Dove),

My dog believes I go to work for their food and treats.

From one of your former Secret Santas, I just wanted to say how sorry I am about Bo. You're so sweet to do this for Mookie. Hugs.

I am so saddened to learn of your loss of Bo at such a special time.

Emerald is an emerald green girl.  She wears it well. Every once in a blue moon she'll grab a toy and toss it, then she's done. So I  wouldn't worry about toys. But she's got all her teeth and loves food. I do stay away from rawhide and stuff not made in the USA. And she's very good at sharing. But her sister from Macau China is in renal failure (thus, no China treats) and is missing most of her teeth. I'm sure Santa will bring her sister plenty of her own special treats. Emma is about 25" long and 25" tall if I measured right. She's an average 60 lbs girl.

I like food! Salty or sweet. A super severe chocoholic. (Candy, cookie, coffee, cake, hot chocolate,  ice cream...you get the idea :D) I do need to stay away from spicy hot. (Heartburn) I'm also travelling a lot now that I'm retired.  And am big into gardening and home grown stuff. 

I hope that helps Santa. 

Thank you so much.
