Pet-related Christmas puns? Help!

Hi Mefites!

I work for a pet-minding business and my boss has asked me to write the Christmas newsletter for our clients. I am what you might charitably call not so good at coming up with the sort of cutesy puns she's after, so i'm turning to you.

For reference, in last year's letter she used 'Merry Christmouse and a Pawsome New Year'. Some Googling has only turned up 'Meowy Christmas'.

Can you think of any others I can use?

The old Boynton card was something like "Wee fish ewe a mare egrets moose panda hippo gnu deer". Of course if you use that everyone who recognizes that card (like me) will instantly think you ripped it off, but that might help your creative juices.

Furry Christmas!

Pet the cat and walk the doggie
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Don't let either chew the holly
Fa la la la la, la la la la

[then it fell apart as I tried to figure out what to rhyme with "tissue paper" and "diving"]

""Fleas" Navidad!" "Furry Christmas!"

I was gonna split the difference and go with "Furries Navidad"

But holiday song titles/lyrics would prove bountiful for this sorta thing.
"Deck the Paws"
"The Fur-st Noel"
"Pup on the Housetop"
"Go Tail It on the Mountain"
"We Woof You a Merry Christmas"
"Pets Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"
"Dog Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"?

I kinda cringe at the thought of what's to come, but... I can't turn away...

"Not a creature was stirring..." is usually the tagline we see on holiday cards featuring friends' pets. :)

Deck the halls with boughs of COLLIE

O TenenPOMeranian

(and a picture of a Christmas tree completely covered in Pomeranians, just completely fucking strewn with dozens of Pomeranians, just Pomeranians all over the fucking place, jumping off the tree, running toward the viewer, a veritable flood of awesome pomeranians)
