Advent Calendar: Day 9

Lucky’s Christmas List

Lucky never made a Christmas list before, but he heard the other dogs talking about it. They told Lucky that every year they write down a list of things they want to get from Santa Puppy. After their list is complete, they leave it next to a piece of bacon on Christmas Eve. When they wake up Christmas morning, the things they want are in their stockings or under the tree.

Lucky thought this sounded like a good idea. He got a piece of paper and a pencil and started to think. What would he ask Santa Puppy to bring him?

Lucky had plenty of blankets.
He got bacon nearly every day.
His humans took him for walks and made sure he had food to eat.
He even got a biscuit every time he came into the house.

Lucky couldn’t think of anything he needed. While thinking, Lucky suddenly got sad. He remembered when he didn’t have a home. He didn’t have a warm, dry place to sleep. He just wandered around and ate whatever he could find. He thought about the dogs he met while he was homeless. Did they find a home like Lucky did?

Lucky decided he had more than he could ask for. He only wrote one thing on his list: For all dogs to find a forever home with nice humans like he did.
