It's that time of year again! When 12 Dogs of Christmas will have the chance to write their letters to Santa and you get to be elves helping Santa send them home. It's easy, just share the letters so they make it all the way to the North Pole.
I know you are very busy so I hope you have time to read my letter. I only have one wish for Christmas this year. I need a new family. My first one didn’t work out the way it was supposed to. I tried and tried to figure out what they wanted me to do as I grew from puppy to dog, but I guess I just never got it right. I spent a lot of time outdoors there – it was not the best first year a dog could have. This time I would really like to be in the house with my people. I figure if I live inside with them like I did at my foster home, I will get good at making them happy.
I like children because they are fun and silly like me. Having a dog friend is cool, too, so when the humans are busy I still have someone to play with, but it’s OK if I am their one and only dog. I am not sure what a cat is, but I would be willing to meet one.
I know if someone would spend some time with me I could be the best dog ever. I am very intelligent Santa but figuring out what people want me to do has been difficult. Maybe you could find someone I could take to school and help them learn how to speak dog.
I promise Santa, I will be a good boy in my new home and next year we can go back to toys and treats for my Christmas wishes.
