    I love the 12 days of Christmas. But my story goes a little bit differnt. My little Fleas Navidad story goes like this
    Day one do you want a dog?
    Day 2 How about a golden retreaver?
    Day 3 What about a ceasar dog?
    Day 4 maybe a pitbull?
    Day 5 how about a sheep dog?
    Day 6 how about a Chihuahua ?
    Day 7 here guess what this is?
    Day 8 look at that big box it is yours?
    Day 9 here is another box? Hehe
    Day 10 guess we will get a tea cup chihuahua? Later?
    Day 11 Christmas eve let’s go for a ride. We go to Fort Plains New York and he hands me at tiny little puppy smaller than a Christmas Card.
    She is a beautiful white and a apercot.
    Cockapoo . I am in love.
    Day 12 Christmas. She is perfect. And all the gifts are treats, collars, leashes, pillows, bed, food, and anything else you would need for a puppy.
    Christmas is wonderful. With a cockapoo in it.
    And your storytelling is fantastic.
