I know that Bunny is a little hound with big dreams, but I really had no idea how big her dreams had gotten. Here's her letter, the last of the ones for Santa. I wonder if he'll send a reply.
Bunny here, writing you a letter with a few thoughts I've had.
I know most hounds and humans write you letters with things that they want, and I do have a list that I'll get to in a little bit. First, though, I have an idea that I think merits your attention. I hope you'll consider my suggestions.
You see, I've noticed that you fly around the world being pulled by eight reindeer. There is no way that a reindeer is as fast as a Greyhound. If you had Greyhounds to pull your sleigh, you'd get done a lot faster, and then we could all go back to the North Pole and take a long winter's nap. We could wear festive coats with lights flashing on them and even boots so that no one would hear us when we land on the roofs of the houses we visit. Nobody would be woken up by the pawing and prancing of each little hoof, because we'd all curl up quietly and rest while you were down in the houses distributing the toys. We also eat a lot less than reindeer, so we'd be more cost efficient. I think you'd also have to agree that we're a lot sweeter and nicer than reindeer, too. I mean, which one would you rather curl up with by the fire after all the Christmas work is over? I think you have to agree that we're much more suited to the job. Blueberry and I are willing to do the job, and I'm sure that we can find six more friends who are willing to help out! Just let us know if you're interested.
As for my list, I mostly hope that each of my sisters and Mom and Dad get what they want. They've been good all year -- well, except for Lilac, but she's old and she needs some breaks. Don't hold those things she does against her, please. I'd like a couple of new Tummy Warmers, some dog bakery treats, some pink sparkly things, and a winning lottery ticket. That way I could hire Mom as my personal assistant and she could stay home with me all day. I think that would be the best present ever!
P.S. Don't worry about Morgan biting you when you get here. We talked and I've got it all worked out. As long as she gets to sniff you first, it's all good!
