Christmas dog video - What will Santa bring?

Posted on 15 December 2015

Will the Christmas present be worth the wait?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year again. The generously garnished Christmas tree is up and the pile of presents under it keeps growing daily as if by magic.

For the youngest in the family, all they can do now is wait for Santa’s visit. And wait. Open a door on the advent calendar and wait. Again. There’s no known relief from the agony of Christmas Day anticipation. In fact it appears to have spread to the furrier members of the family too.

Watch this video to see the never-ending run up to Christmas Day through the eyes of two incredibly excited hounds. Will their fairy dogmother’s gift be worth the long wait?

No animals were harmed in the making of this video, although both dogs were given a mug of very sweet tea to drink immediately after filming the final scene.

Happy Christmas viewing everyone!

Christmas with the stars

We asked the video’s stars what they’ll be getting up to this Christmas and whether there’s any truth in those on set Christmas romance rumours.

Yoko – Leading lady and dedicated Doga devotee

Yoko the Yorkshire Terrier - one of the video’s stars
Where will you be this Christmas?

Me and 20 of my closest acquaintances are going to St Barks where I have a modest 12 bed beach kennel. I’ve worked on two major SunLife films this year, with only two months off in between, so I’m obviously utterly exhausted and in need of a well earned rest.

What are your 3 Christmas wishes?
  1. World peace
  2. An end to poverty
  3. A diamond encrusted collar
First there was Brangelina, now Joko. Are the rumours true?

Jake has a beautiful spirit inside and out. Our on screen chemistry is electrifying because we connect on such a deep level. But I don’t discuss my pawsonal life in public. I prefer to do so on Facebone and Yapchat.

Jake – Actor, heartthrob and all round good dog

Where will you be this Christmas?

I’m helping at a rescue centre for those less fortunate and less gorgeous than me. My staff will be given one whole hour off to serve lunch to the animals and I will endure having to shell my own prawns at home. It’s tough but someone’s got to do it.

What are your 3 Christmas wishes?
  1. World peace
  2. A loving home for every dog… and cat I suppose
  3. Phil Collins’ greatest hits
Are you and Yoko just good friends?

I’ve never met Yoko. You’d never know it but we actually filmed our performances separately due to my other work commitments.

Meatballs – Cat of few words

Meatballs - the feline video star

Meatballs wished everyone a merry Christmas but did not want any further attention. Describing her canine co-stars as ‘way too needy’, she chose to sit silently looking ever so slightly superior.
