Featuring star ex DR doggie Chippy
Pizzey & his pearls of wisdom
Dear Santa, I have Hi Fans,
been very good for
the last week or When Christmas comes around I
so…Can we just make usually my list for Santa and, I
focus on that? like to do it in advance, but not too
far in advance otherwise I might
miss some new trendy toy or treat,
and not too late as I don’t like to rush
my list. Lately though... I have been
thinking—is it okay to ask Santa for
too much or am I forgetting the
TRUE meaning of Christmas?
My friends are all spoiled, like me, but they don’t know what it
feels like to have no home and no special human to love, like
I do. When I was living at DoggieRescue (I was a homeless
doggie too once) I wished for lots and lots of presents because
I needed to be shown I was still loved and that Santa had not
forgotten me because I had no home.
This year I have been thinking...Isn’t when Mum says to me
“ Having you is the best Christmas present in the world
Chippy!” or Dad says “ Come here Chips and give Dad a great
big hug for Christmas!” a wonderful gift?
So, I’ve decided the gifts of love are the best and I’m not
making a list this year (well, I‘ll still look in my stocking that
Santa fills). Christmas is not all about the gifts but a celebration
of family and love. Yappy holidays, Chips xxx
Last Christmas I had a family and CHIPPY’S

Christmas Wishes, Hopes and Dreams
By Henry & Zoey Ramoni
Dear Santa….Henry & Zoey
here. As we hang our stocking
up we have been thinking…
This year we have everything
we want for Christmas, but
our friends at DoggieRescue
have not been so lucky. So
instead of presents this year
can you please grant us six
Christmas wishes for them?
Our first wish is for all the homeless dogs at DoggieWood. We wish they enjoy all the love that Monika and her
team and volunteers provide, through cuddles, playtime and treats, just like they did with us. Little did we know, our
destiny was for Monika to find and rescue us and for our forever family to adopt us. Santa these dogs need HOPE.
How do we get this
to the North Pole?
Our second wish is for all shy dogs who are still afraid, we wish for
them to quickly open up their paws and hearts to Monika and her
wonderful team of people as they will only know love from thereon.
Henry was a shy boy who was not very used to household sounds, as
soon as Mum and Dad noticed this they reached out to Monika and her
team who gave us some good tips to help Henry be more confident at
home. In only a few days Henry came out of his shell and is now a very
good, confident little boy! Please Santa bring these dogs PEACE...

Dear Santa, our sixth and last wish is a special one for Monika who has worked incredibly hard to save so
many lives, including ours, Mum and Dad tell us the number is over 12,000 and counting! For Monika we wish all
the best this Christmas, to continue to be the angel she is and the saviour of all of those fellow companion doggies/
cats/rabbits and that she continues to inspire people all around Australia with the amazing work she and her team
do. Santa, please bring Monika lots of BLESSINGS, more donations and wrap them up in LOVE and KINDNESS.

her grew so strong I could not go a day without seeing her
happy face! I couldn't bear the thought of her going to sleep
without a goodnight cuddle and a relaxing warm dinner. So
after a bit of convincing, the rest of my family came on
board too (especially foster fur-brother Chumley).

As I ease into a life of being solely responsible for

being so loveable and agreeable, she is such a hit
with all my friends, as well as Chumley’s friends at
the dog park. What feels best about giving her a

worthy of love and a home, that her forever home is
on it’s way, and in the meantime I promise to love
her and show her everything the world that being
outside of pounds and shelters has to offer.
We are all so excited to give Tasha the first
Christmas of her new life, she already has her
reindeer antlers she carries around the house

good Christmas leftovers are! Santa has also
been notified regarding her change of address :)
