I got Vida two weeks before Christmas. Just made wrapping presents more of a hassle because this cute little bear/puppy kept coming up trying to play with the wrapping paper . I don't think a responsible breeder would purposely sell their pups as Christmas puppies. The worst is when people get pups as presents for eachother.. oh, fun. Not really!

I do not cause my bitches to come into heat by some artificial means so I have have puppies ready to be brought home on Christmas Eve. I think that would be an infernal pain in the backside anyway. So far it hasn't been an issue. But if all the stars lined up just so, and a bitch had the audacity to come into heat just in time to have puppies available at Christmas, yeah, I would let them go home. It would not mean that I would do anything less in looking at the prospective owners.

I am receiving a puppy on Dec 27th. Coming from Slovakia....fortunately they don't abide by the same concern as here. I will be leaving on the 28th for Boston and back on 12/30. Pup will stay with my daughter for those two days,,,don't expect pressure or stress or new people to have any effect on this puppy. Most stress will come from my daughters two kids,6 and 10, and I'm sure that puppy will be glad to see me again....haha. Xmas is just like any other time to me as breeder or buyer.

We received 2 phone calls yesterday from people asking for puppies, as soon as we told them they would not be ready for their homes for another 2 months, they hang up. Clearly they were looking for x-mas gifts.

Errow came from Belgium just a few days before Christmas, 23rd maybe. I remember being at the Buffalo Airport late at night waiting for him and it was pretty busy. He was supposed to come in sooner by a day or 2 but got delayed from Europe.

My aunt lived in a 2 family house and her in-laws lived downstairs One year I arrived to visit for the Christmas holidays and the in-laws were keeping a collie puppy for the nieghbours who had bought it for their child -I think They called him Elmo when they went to work Elmo came over and stayed at my aunts in laws. Elmo went home when they arrived home. Elmo had a pretty good life

I've never had a Christmas litter, but unless I personally knew the family looking for a puppy the answer would be NO. Kind of like the little chicks and bunnies at Easter.
