    OK...
    I'm going to PM all my people in the newbie Christmas swap and see if they want to join this one before I officially join.


    I think neck sizes, collar type preference and colors preferred on your dog, should be added to the list of things people should PM.
    And I think people should be EXACT about what they want/need, unless they TRULY are NOT picky.:D

    I dont think people need to be exact on what they want/need as its Christmas.. not a "Drive" for the needy lol
    If think that you get what your given.. you should have to request/demand certain ideas ;)
    but the collar size thing might not be a bad thing to add onto the list.

    No, I know it's not a drive for the needy. I didn't mean to present it as that.
    I just like to be able to get people stuff they like and I don't want to get them something that they'll be like, "EW." with, you know?

    It doesn't matter, though.:D

    Last year, we made a "request" thread for people who would like to request certain items etc..

    We'll do the same this year - makes things easier ;)

    Ok, I owe an explanation here, because I have gotten some PMs from a number of people who matter to me, so I will post my stock answer here, so you understand why I do not join in on Christmas Forum Gift Giving of any kind.

    I stopped joining these kinds of things two years ago. You see, I belong to several cat forums as well as two regional political forums. Secret santa became a chore and a pain in the butt and the wallet. Then there were the forum members who sent me gifts on their own, and then I felt obligated to do the same. It snowballed year by year until finally it wasn't fun. As time went on, it started to cost me more to participate in forum Christmas than it cost me for my family! I made up my mind then that I would stop all of this, and if I didn't participate in one forum gift-exchange, I would not participate in any for the sake of fairness. Life is a lot more peaceful for me at Christmas time now. I despise shopping for Christmas, I am one of those anal retentive people who want to find just the right thing until I go borderline insane. If somebody sends me something I feel compelled to send something back! The secret santa and forum gift giving thing turned out to be a problem for me both in time and in money. While it's nothing to participate in one, it can be a real drag participating in many. If I capitulate here at Chaz, it would be unfair to the long time posters I have known elsewhere. So please don't think I don't care. I just don't care to get caught up in all this gift giving just because it's Christmas. Knowing some of you is a gift unto itself. One day I will bundle up Tosca and mail her to one of you if she doesn't stop honking and moaning at 3 AM.

    Signed,
    Grinch, But A Nice Grinch

    Aww I want to join but I won't be here for Christmas.. I'll be at my parents and I don't think they want their address posted on the web :(

    Could I still send someone a e-gift like a video made out of their dogs pictures?
