Jingle bells, jingle bells

I fell in love with dogs

when I was 11 years old.

It was in a town where

there were no dogs allowed.

There was no one to love them,

and they had no place to go.

(CHUCKLES) But Mikey Stevens

and I loved them all.

We had to

transform a whole town,

touch their hearts, and change

their minds about the dogs.

So we put on a show.

A great, big, wonderful show

with kids

and dogs and

Christmas miracles.

We called it

The 12 Dogs of Christmas.

For this Christmas day,

I wish, I hope, I pray

A puppy's under the tree

Waiting there for me

The best gift of all,

From dear old Santa Claus

All I want for Christmas

Is some puppy love

Puppy love, puppy love

Oh, Santa

Santa, Santa

A soft little bundle

of cuddly fur

Hugs me and kisses me


One puppy smile

can melt my heart

A new best friend,

we will never part

Loving devotion to the end

This is puppy love

For this Christmas day,

I wish, I hope, I pray

A puppy's under the tree

Waiting there for me...

I could never have imagined that

six years later, I'd be coming back.

All I want for Christmas


Is some puppy love

Puppy love, puppy love

Oh, Santa

Santa, Santa

Bring me puppy love



Why do you suppose dogs

love chasing things?

Because they hate

to be left behind.

Is she a Papillon?

Yes, how did you know that?

Dogs have been an interesting

part of my life.

Where you going, honey?



Isn't that the strange little

town where no dogs are allowed?


It used to be like that,

but not anymore.

You visiting

your family there?

Funeral, actually.



Oh! Excuse me,

why did the train stop?

Freight derailed

about 40 miles east.

But I have to be in

Doverville by 2:

I don't drive them, darlin',

just punch the tickets.


Here you are!

Are you going to Doverville?

Of course I am, honey. I can take you

all the way to Mrs. Stevens' funeral.

How did...

I'm sorry, I don't...

Did we meet when I was...

No, no, we've never met,

but I know who you are.

So let's go, you're already late.

Get in, get in!


She was a fine woman,

your Cathy Stevens.

You knew her well?

She was like a mother to me.

Thank you for the ride.

Give me your hand.

You're gonna need

a place to stay.


Thank you.



I'm so sorry, I tried to make

it here on time and then...



I am so sorry about your mom.



I am so sorry

about your mother, son.

If there's anything I can

do, anything at all.

That's very nice of you I'm

sure he's just... Thank you.


He seemed nice.


if there is anything I can do,

you just let me know, okay?

How are the dogs?

They'd love to see you.

We're here.


Nessie, Nessie! Come

here, come here! Good.

This is Nessie.

Hi, how are you?

Hi, Nessie.

Nice to meet you.


Here we are,

come on in.

Oh. my gosh. Hi!

Oh. my gosh! Hi!

Okay, names?

This one is Jack,

there's a million of them.

This one is Badger,

Dagwood, Flapper, Nibbles.

There's a bunch of puppies,

too, Angel, Harpo, Jake, Lucky.

There's Pepper,

there's Napolean.

I just want to hold you! You are so

cute, yes, thank you for the kiss.

You sure

like basketball.

I love basketball.

Hi. Hi, Sweet Pea.

They were going to put her down.

She broke her leg.

If it was lost, abandoned, wounded,

hungry she just couldn't say no.

You know my mom.

Knew my mom.

So what are you
