I mentioned yesterday that I'd found the girls' letters to Santa and thought I'd share them. I suspect that Bunny added a few notes here and there as she took most of the dictation. I guess I should just be glad that she's not teaching everyone to type.
It's me Morgan. I hope you remember me. I lived in a different place last year, and now I have a new home. I promise that I have been very good in both places. I've tried my best, anyway. My new family needs a lot of protecting, and I am the Shepherd for the job. I promise not to bite you, especially after Bunny and I had a little chat about how you bring presents and treats. Since I don't want her to be disappointed, I promised to let you in.
As for things I want, well, I'd like some things that help make my job as family protector a bit easier. I need some personal body alarms to keep on Mom and Dad at all times, and batteries that will keep them running safely. If you could send some that lock on around their ankles and can't be removed for any reason, that would be helpful, too! I also need a bubble wrap suit for Bunny. She runs so fast at the dog park that I can't keep up with her, and it would help keep other dogs from jumping on her in those few seconds that I can't catch up to her. I try to keep those other dogs at bay, but you know, they just don't respect the fact that Bunny is royalty and other dogs can't just be jumping around on her. I need a Wolf Pack for Blueberry so she can go hiking with us next Spring and I can keep an eye on her and not lose her on the trails. Also, I carry the GPS in my pack on our hikes, but I am thinking I might sneak it into Blue's pack when she's not looking and then I could keep track of her if I need to. As far as Lilac goes, please, please, get her a new fan in case the other one dies and that Potty Patch. I hold my breath every time she goes down those back steps. Hmmm... On second thought, you better send me two bubble wrap suits.
I'd like to assure you that I have been a good girl all year, even though things didn't work out at my last home. I've tried my very best! Just between you and me, I already got my best present back in June when I found my new home. It's the perfect place for me and I love my new job protecting and loving all of them! Thank you, Santa! You knew just what I needed.
P.S. Santa, Morgan really wants some toys, a few chewy things and some dog treats from the bakery! She won't say that, but I know she wants some. Oh, and just between you and me, she needs a red Tummy Warmer. It's not for all the time, but if we go out on some Winter adventures, well, she needs to stay warm out there on the trails!
