Bunny here with a little tale about our Christmas Eve adventures.
You see, it just so happened that we were waiting up for Santa, since I was sure he'd want to take me up on that offer to take over the job from the reindeer. That's when I got a call. It was Alien calling to tell us that he had a problem. His mechanical reindeer weren't working and he needed to fly around the world to deliver presents and keep Sallie from being disappointed again. Well, I told him that Blueberry and I could pull that space age sleigh faster than any reindeer and since Santa hadn't seen the wisdom of my plan, we'd be happy to help him out.
It was going pretty smoothly as we ran along, stopping at all the homes of the dogs we knew had been good and leaving them all sorts of good treats. We even stopped at all the shelters and left presents and food for the dogs and cats waiting for their forever homes. It was rather exhilarating to run along in the sky combining our Greyhound speed and the Hicbarian technology so that we could fly.
Well, it just so happened that Lilac might have been whispering something in Alien's ear that had him distracted. While he was gazing into her eyes, we saw Santa zipping through the sky with his eight reindeer. We couldn't help it. Our Greyhound instincts kicked in and we took off. We just had to pass Santa and those reindeer. As we raced off in hot pursuit, Alien and Lilac had to hang on back there in the sleigh.
I heard Santa shout "Ho Ho Ho" and I yelled "Eat My Dust" and we gave it everything we had. It was awesome! Santa and all his reindeer stared at us as we flew past them with mouths in a perfect O shape. If I'd had time, I'd have snapped a picture, but we were going too fast. I'm hoping we don't end up on the naughty list next year over a little friendly competition, but if we do, that's okay. It was completely worth it!
Soon, we were all done with our important job and we headed back so Alien could deliver his special present for Sallie. Then we headed home because we were definitely in need of a nap. We Greyhounds run hard and sleep hard, it's just part of who we are. No sooner were we back home then Morgan, Blueberry and I were all curled up in our beds and dreaming of sugar bones.
Imagine our surprise when we woke up Christmas morning and found a stash of presents under the tree. Everything we'd asked for was wrapped up nicely under the tree. There was even a new fan with a big red bow on top. I walked up to the tree in awe. There on top of my presents was a letter from Santa.
You were right! Greyhounds are much faster than reindeer. I was amazed by your speed as you charged past my coursers. For a little hound, you are certainly fast! Next year, will you please guide my sleigh with a team of Greyhounds?
Please accept these gifts as a reward for your generosity in helping Alien deliver presents to those I couldn't reach. I'll be looking forward to meeting you next year!
P.S. Lilac's present involved handcuffs, Alien and that sleigh of his. I'm sure she'll be back in due time!
Wow! I guess dreams do come true, for all of us! Merry Christmas to all!
