Your chocolate gift is under the tree

We have a terrific duo of six-month-old Black Lab/Shepherd mix puppies. Ronnie is a cute girl with a friendly attitude, and she loves to play! Mick is a big boy who is friendly and full of energy. They are looking for loving homes to spend Christmas. Do you have room under your Christmas tree for an adorable living present? Come out and meet them.

Watson here, and this year I decided to lie down under the Christmas tree on the warm blanket mom put around the base. When mom saw me, she said, “Oh look, we have the best present ever, a big Chocolate Lab under our tree.” Ah, so sweet, my pet parents love me.

Christmas is a special time for our family, because we remember all the incredible pets who have shared our home and hearts. The angel on top of our tree is a Yellow Lab. All of the cat and dog ornaments represent pets who have gone over the rainbow bridge. The big furry gift lying under the tree is me.

Another Christmas feature is our nativity scene. In our nativity scene surrounding baby Jesus are two Yellow Labs, two Calico cats, a Chocolate Lab, and Black Lab. As mom says, “There had to be dogs and cats at the first Christmas, because I know baby Jesus loved animals.”

Speaking of loving animals, as many of you know, I was homeless and abandoned at the pound until Pauline, my best friend, found me and brought me to CAPS. There I was taken care of by the most wonderful people in the world, and every day Pauline gave me treats.

CAPS, our homegrown shelter, was spearheaded by Norma Klenakis who founded the “Dirty Dozen,” a group that established CAPS and worked to care for our homeless friends to keep them safe. Amazingly, we are celebrating our 35th year thanks to all the wonderful folks of Fallon.

CAPS saves many pets from doom and gloom, because we are a no-kill shelter. The pets who are lucky enough to come to CAPS can expect to live their lives in a happy home, because everyone at CAPS strives to find a forever home for each guest. That is how they roll.

Christmas is Saturday and it is not too late to make a dream come true for one of our CAPS guests. You too might have the best present ever laying under your tree on Christmas morning.

Merry Christmas from Watson and his family.

XOXO Watson
