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.
It’s been a rough year for me Santa. I don’t really understand money, but my family fell apart when there wasn’t enough of it. Me and my sisters lived in a kennel while our human tried to find a new place for us all to live. He tried hard, but there just wasn’t anywhere that needed less of that money stuff that would allow three dogs, so he gave us up and he made a wish for us all to find a new family and a new place to call home. We all traveled, one by one, to NY. My sisters found their new homes but no one seems to want me.
Maybe it’s because I sing a lot here. I don’t know why. It makes me feel better and chases away the sadness I feel. You can tell people I am not that noisy when I am happy and in a home. I try to hold on to my hope, but every once in a while it slips away and I feel so lost and alone. The people here help me get through those dark days and tell me not to worry, the day will come when my new best friend finds me.
I did try a new home, but it was not for me. The other dog that lived there was too hard to live with. If you are going to pick a home with another dog, please make sure she is gentle and kind like my sisters were. I would rather not live with cats either, Santa. As you know, Santa, I am a good boy with all people.
I am grateful for the good life I had for 4 years, but I sure do hope I get another chance to be that happy again.
