While we were waiting, a Bulldog showed up and kept threatening to eat Morgan. I'm glad I warned her about being on your best behavior in front of Santa, because I'm pretty sure that Bulldog ended up on the Naughty list. He was growling at everyone, right in front of Santa.
Finally, we got to our turn to see Santa. Mom said we had to pose for a picture. A picture?! I showed up to read Santa my wish list, not pose for pictures. Mom explained that for ten dollars, we'd get a picture with Santa and the money would go to help our local animal shelter, so I put on my best smile and got into place beside Blueberry. Morgan sat beside him. Then, it turns out, Santa was afraid to take our leashes! I was amazed. I mean, sure, if Morgan had been all Shepherdy and telling him to keep his hands off the princess, then I could understand, be we all wagged our tails and gave him our doe eyes. Whoever heard that Santa was afraid of big dogs?
The day wasn't a total loss, though. After we were done, we went to Petsmart. We met a handsome Greyhound there named Brody and his owner gave us his e-mail address so we could meet up later when the weather gets better. Blue and I were both glad we were wearing our stylish pink coats. I also found something that I'm going to put at the top of my Christmas list.
Now I'm off to have visions of sugarplums! I hope the real Santa will bring us something good. What are all of you hoping for this Christmas?
