Oh Dog! I am so so SO EXCITED!!! You are gonna PEE ON THE RUG when you see who my guest is today! Are you ready?????
Then dogs and cats, put your paws together and help me welcome the Big Guy himself……. SANTA!!!!
SANTA: Ho! Ho! Ho!
RUMPY: Oh Dog! I am so excited Santa! Thank you SO much for being my guest today. Now I know you have many names you go by all over the world. Is it OK if I call you Santa?
SANTA: That’s fine by me Rumpy! And have YOU been a very good dog this year?
RUMPY: I sure have! Now Santa, let’s start by asking about The Legend- you have been around for a LONG time! From what I read, you first hit the scene in 270 AD! Can that be true?
SANTA: The legend began with a kind Bishop Nicholas who was in Myra in what is now Turkey. Nicholas helped the daughters of a good man avoid having to go into prostitution by providing them with money for a dowry so they could marry.
RUMPY: The word is that you used the home’s chimney to drop the money down to the girls? Was that your first delivery?
SANTA: That’s what the legend says Rumpy!
RUMPY: Oh Dog! Now through the years your legend has survived, but it has also morphed to fit with the times. So tell us Santa, are there any new changes on the horizon?
SANTA: Funny you should ask. With global warming slowly but surely increasing the temperature at the North Pole, along with a long trek thru the southern hemisphere, I think it may be time to change the costume. What do you think?
RUMPY: Hmmmm…. I dunno, I’m not a dog that adapts well to change. But the most important thing is your comfort. What did ya have in mind?
SANTA: Still working on the design, but I’ll keep you posted.
RUMPY: OK, one more question Santa. I know you keep a list of good girls and boys, but what about us dogs and cats? Surely we’re held to a different standard than human children? After all, stealing a bite of someone’s dinner is a far cry from refusing to clean your room or skipping school. Right?
SANTA: Trust me, good dogs and cats have nothing to worry about! Now, what’s on the list of my favorite dogs- Rumpy and DeDe?
RUMPY: DeDe wants a new deer antler and a fancy new collar. I would like a free pass to Doggy Daycare at Doggie’s Day Out!
SANTA: And the kitties?
RUMPY: Well…… they would like fish treats and cat nip toys. And Stray Kitty would like a forever home.
SANTA: *writes this down* Now, no promises, but I’ll get the elves right on it.
RUMPY: *hugs Santa* Thanks Santa! Oh yeah, *whispers* Just so ya know, Jen says that if things don’t work out with you and Mrs. Claus- look her up!
SANTA: *blushes* Ho! Ho! Ho!

PLaying the matchmaker now, are we Rumpy? Hahaha.
Here’s hoping you’ll get your wishes this year. Oh, what am I saying, I’m sure they will. 🙂
Well he IS the nicest man I know….. AND there’s the snow thing…..
Hello Mr Santa!!!! * wavespawfrantically* I’m so happy to meet you!
I’ve been a very good dog this year, too! Wow, I didn’t know about the legend started with Bishop Nicholas. Oh! you’ve been thinking to change your costume! What about knee breeches and short-sleeved? too short ? Woof?
I hope everypawdy will recieve what we want for Christmas and especially,
our favorite Rumpy family will DO, Mr Santa!!!
Thank you very much for your story, Mr Santa! Woo woo! 🙂
See? I TOLD you I had an in with the Big Guy! woo woo woo!
:- ) in Italy we call it: Babbo Natale.
very early history, like all of you
Babbo Natale! That’s a cool name!
What a story, about your name,
And of the way you rose to fame,
It does not matter,
How we natter,
Or what we call you, you’re the same.
You got that right Bigfoot! woo woo woo!
Willow hugs her friend Rumpy – I beez so jealouz you meetz DA MAN HIZSELFS! I hopez you tells him we all beez good AND BRIG US lots OF SUPRIZES! MOL – Willow giggles
You guys better send in your letter to Santa! Cuz now you KNOW he reads my blog! woo woo woo!
What a fun interview! And we learned a bunch of new things, too. We think maybe Santa would wear swim trunks and a Hawaiian shirt if it starts getting too hot. @SantasCat told us he always takes a vacation after Christmas to rest up from all that delivering. He wouldn’t even have to change clothes. Do you think he might trim his beard short, too? Meow!
We hope everyone gets good stuff for Christmas. Maybe he’ll bring you a big pile of snow to play in! Love & loud purring from us…
Oh Dog! a Hawaiian shirt would be so cool!!!! But I was hoping he might get a T-shirt with my picture on it…. *wink*
IS there a t-shirt with your picture on it? WE’D buy one of those!!
Smudge has a list ready for Santa!
Tell him to send it to rumpysanta at gmail dot com and I’ll publish it!
Very nice! The pugs are going to visit Santa at our pug meetup in two weeks!
Oh Dog! I bet they will have a GREAT time! Can’t wait to see the pics!
Hahahaha! Amazing! The guy in the picture from Wikipedia is called “Sinterklaas” (Or Sint Nicholas).
It’s a holiday here in Holland on the 5th of December, because that’s supposed to be his birthday. And also the day when he brings children (who have been good that year) presents.
So I read! I’m telling ya, this Santa has LOTS of secret identities!
All over the world!
Great! I’ve visited your YouTube channel, very nice, the dog and the cat 🙂
music comes from many sources! woo woo woo!
A wonderful Interview, Rumpy!
Luckily, for us, we were not so excited by it that we peed on the carpet!
I don’t think Daddy Kiril would have like THAT, um, hee, hee! ;-D
Thanks for stopping by, and liking our videos!
We were very excited to see the one you made with all the Cats in your family!
Very Cool! ;-D
We have LOTS of Kodak moments around here…. we just don’t have a professional photographer…. *sigh*
Oh Rumpy, you sure are sneaky! Trying to get Santa to move in so you can have pressies all year round hahaha!!
Am getting Austin on to writing his letter soonest, but not sure whether I want to know what’s on it. Could be very embarrassing!! xx
Yeah, well, kitties can be pretty cheeky sometimes!
Wow….. I continue to be impressed Rumpy – just how did you get Santa to take time out of his busy schedule to interview with you??!!! I hope all your gift wishes come true, especially those about adopting kitties who need good homes!
Hey, I got game like that! *wink*
This is a doggone great interview. And with the Guy in the Red Suit, that must have taken some doing! I hope Santa has plenty of goodies to go around for all us creatures, two and four legged! 😉
Happy Weekend Rumpy, Ger and the Ched
Thanks guys! It took a bit of work, but hey, when ya got it, ya got it!
Nice score, Rumpy! I hope you get the presents you asked for and I hope Stray Kitty finds a forever home, too.
Thank you! Stray Kitty was so skinny when she showed up, but you’d never know it to look at her now!
As I read this to Oreo, Ling Ling, and Tilly Tot, their eyes grow as round as dog dishes. They want to send theirs letters to Santa right away.
Btw, Rumpy, thanks for reading my story “Once Upon a Mirror Dreary.” I’m glad you liked it. So did the three holy terrors, but they said it frightened them.
Woo woo woo!!!
I think Santa was probably impressed because you asked some interesting historical question before getting to the nitty gritty: GIFTS!
Yeah well… It’s good to know who you’re talking to!
Great interview with Santa, Rumpydog – you handled it well, asking some cool and really interesting questions. Hope you all get what you asked for – and especially for Stray Kitty.
Oh Dog! I do too!!! Thanks!
Great interview! We are hoping to get more Kongs this year. We’ve been reasonably good (it’s hard when you’re a puppy) and we’ve never had a Christmas before, so we’re very excited.
Oh Dog! I bet you get them! I would also ask for peanut butter!
This was interesting about Turkey and we thought it just something to eat! We are all good kitties except maybe Odin but Santa has no favorites at our house.
I thought it was cool!!!
This was so lovely dear Rumpy, how much I love you and to hear you 🙂 Blessing and Happiness, with my love, nia
*blush* Thank you so much!
Hi Ho…thanks for dropping by my doodle blog and WOWie ZOWie…you are talking to Sannie…Mr. Cool himself…you is dee luckiest….I gotta start figuring out what I need or maybe should give to the shelter…yeah that’s what i’ll do this year… Cheers!
That’s a GREAT idea!
What a super duper guest! Santa! Wow! So glad he made it simple, lettin’ you just call him Santa.
Are you going to do an interview with Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer, too?
Y’all come back now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
Maybe…. or maybe June Buggie will interview an elf! ROFL
Wow, you gots to interview Santa Paws! Rumpy, you sure is a lucky dog!
Woofs and Licks,
I KNOW! Am I lucky or WHAT??????
Bravo, Rumpydog! Some excellent info there on The Big Guy. But did he tell you how he gets down those chimneys without getting arrested?
I asked, but he withheld that information *sigh*
I don’t get it Rumpy? How were you able to go through that entire interview without biting off Santa’s beard?
Oh Dog! Of course! I am a GOOD dog!
I’m so glad that you found my blog because after reading some of your post I’m excited to read more. 🙂
Oh Dog! Thank you!
Rumpydog, I LOVED this post! Woooooo….Santa is one of our favorite people…and the Huskies just love him. What a great interview!
Thanks!! He’s one of my faves for sure!
An amazing ‘scoop’! If you want to hear it first visit Rumpy’s blog!
Wow Rumpy, Santa?! I knew you were popular but I didn’t know you were a super star. What a great interview. I really hope you guys get everything you asked for. Thanks for sharing. 😀 P.S. My kitchen is done, come by to see some pics when you have time.
I did! It looks great!!! I hope you didn’t fuss too much when hubby teased ya that they didn’t fit.
An interview with Santa himself! Thats awesome! 🙂 Its nice of you to ask Santa to give a home to all stray cats and dogs, they should get a chance to celebrate as well.
Thanks for participating in Weekend Cat Blogging! We enjoyed visiting your blog and hope to see you again soon!
You rock Rumpydog ! Definitely no coal for you, just lots of smelly – sorry, yummy – bones!
I almost peed myself too – something magical about the Big Guy, Santa!!!
Clearly you have *connections*, Rumpy, getting to talk to Santa himself. But that shouldn’t surprise me from a dog-about-town like you. Hope Christmas is a huge thrill for all in your household, four-footed and otherwise! 🙂
This was chuckle worthy! 🙂 😆
