And Rufus and Codyâ€™s strong bond makes Josh wonder about his own relationships with his family.Â With Christmas and the adoption date looming, Josh finds himself wondering if he can separate himself from his beloved puppies. At odds with Kerri, Josh isnâ€™t willing to lose her, but doesnâ€™t know how to set things right. Can a surprise litter of Christmas puppies really change one manâ€™s life? W. Bruce Cameron's The Dogs of Christmas is a charming and heartwarming holiday tale that explores the power of love, trust, and a basket full of puppies.
