Please Santa, bring a puppy this time. I know there's one that needs me!Singing children, howling puppies and the one and only Santa Claus make a great combination for a holiday show. The local pound is overcrowded and in an uproar. Someone has eaten Buster Bulldog's supper, Harold Hound Dog can't get any sleep, and there's no room at all to run and play. It's just the pits in the pound! See how one family's trip to the pound on Christmas Eve makes dreams come true for these canine characters and children around the world. With a message of sharing, caring and plenty of canine humor, this holiday musical features five original songs and easy-to-learn rhyming dialog with over 30 speaking parts.
