An Open Letter to Santa

from my Brudder, Rooney

Dear Santa, 
I have been a pretty  very good dog this year.  (me and my momma have already come to terms over that unfortunate incident with the pillow I think its all good)

So, for Christmas this year, I am dreaming of da Lovely Francine.......

Now, Santa, I don't want you to get confused, since the Lovely Francine looks an awful lot like her cuzin, Frankie Furter, the Mayor of Blogville and USPS Mascot.   Frankie lives up north on his own hill, BUTT, the Lovely Francine is currently living and working in the Crescent City of New Orleans

This is FRANKIE >>>>>>>>>>>>

This is FRANCINE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Notice the difference?   

So what I am really hoping for in my Christmas Stocking is a round-trip, all expense paid, first class BUS TICKET to New Orleans for Mardi Gras!   

If you need assistance with the bus ticket, Santa, you can probably talk to my furrend Bunny at Tales and Tails blog.

I will be waiting patiently at the corner.....

It would be wonderful to spend a few days with my sweetie....watching the parades, sipping Hurricanes in the French Quarter and nomming on Oysters to our hearts content!

Oh, and one more request Santa.    Would you please deliver this to Francine from ME???????????

Oh Rooney, what a nice letter. I worry about that Santa you're with...he looks like an imposter.

I'm sure you'll get all of your wishes - especially a trip on that Bunny Bus!!

uh..what a letter!

Scooter said...

Hey Rooney!
Wow, what a letter. I hardly know where to start. First of all, how well do you really know Francine? She's, well, a little eccentric. Anyway, love the bus pix! BOL That's a classic. I hope Santa gives you that trip to Mardi Gras...the town will probably never be the same since Francine arrived.
I wish you, Minna K and your whole pack a very happy holiday!
Grr and A Festive Woof,

I dunno, Rooney, I think mite you has your howlidays confuzzled - would this mebbe be more appropriate fur Balentimes Day? Or wate a minit, here's an idea - if'n Santa duss not come thru fur ya, then just cross "Santa" off your letter and write in "Cupid" instead.

Your pal, Pip

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Roooooooney Woooooonie... Hey it's ME (Cussin Francine Furter), Frankie had his mom call me to come over and see your Letter to Santa. (Frankie isn't allowed to use the phone.. since the INCIDENT.)
Wow do I ever want to show you the Town. I LOVE those Hurricanes and Binets are the bestest. I know all the grrreat places on Bourbon St. too.
We would have a BLAST... IF IF Santa Paws will just grant your request. I will be headin back down there on Sunday. Just so you know. Meet me in front of MOTHERS and we will start with a couple of Shrimp and Oyster PoBoys and go from there big boy!!! IF IF you get your wish... of course.
Did I hear a rumor that your mom has developed that strange afliction that was bothering Puddles... during her Birfday Roast?
It might not be true... BUTTTTTTT I just wanted to ask.
Kissy Kissy Woooo Woooo to YOU Rooney Woonie

Tucker The Crestie said...

Rooney, I don't know how Santa could resist such a touching note from such a cute guy as yourself. Merry Christmas!

Remington said...

I am certain Santa will do his best. That was such a nice letter!

Dexter said...

I can't tell the difference between Frankie and Francine. I sure hope you can or you will be in a world of hurt.

Hey, that wiener dog treadmill. Priceless.


Scooter said...

Hey Rooney!
Since there seems to be at least some measure of confusion about Frankie vs's my offer. Since I'm Chief of Police of Blogville... I can ask them both the "spread 'em"!! Get it?? That ought to clear things up...or confuse things even more!! BOL
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Wyatt said...

That sounds like a splendid plan. How could Santa say no to that?


Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Francine and Frankie are a bit like The Charcoals. BOL! Good luck with that one.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Love is surely blind -

Or something like that -

Mardi Gras sounds like a lot of fun, but maybe a little wild. I hope you get what you want, but be careful when you're there, K?

lotsa licks, Lola

Oh, luv is in da air!!! I hopes dat Santa Paws brings you a ticket on da ole Grey Hound so's dat you's can be wit your sweetie. Can's you come visit me in da Sunshine State too. It's all in da same direction, you nose!


houndstooth said...

Rooney, don't worry! I can definitely get you there in no time! I don't even need a flying laundry basket!

However, I just wonder if you've ever watched The Crying Game, or Tootsie perhaps.


The Life of Riley said...
