Happy Howl’idays everyone!! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving and is as ready for Christmas as I am. I’ve been working really hard to stay on Santa Paw’s nice list this year; I think my mom told you all about it. I’ve also been working on my Christmas list. It can be a little more difficult to come up with your Christmas with list when your birthday falls so close to Christmas, but here is the letter my mom helped me write to Santa Paws.
Dear Mr. Santa Paws:
I hope you are enjoying your busy season this year. My name is Cooper Greene and this is my first Christmas with my mom. I know you get tons of mail from your furry fans all over the world, so I will try and keep my letter as short as possible.
There are a few new toys that I would like to have, such as a Pogo Plush Beaver and a Pogo Plush Bunny. I already have the Pogo Plush Ladybug and I love her. If you don’t have them or can’t find them, a bag of new tennis balls would be super fantastic too. I have been a really good boy this year. I get to go to work with my mom and I try and make good decisions when I am there, like not barking. That is really hard and I have to work on it constantly, but I am getting better. I try to be nice to everyone that I meet and I do love to meet new people and new furry friends. I even try really hard to be nice to the cats when I visit my grandpa. That might be the hardest thing that I have to do.
I got really lucky to get adopted by my mom. I have a great life and that is why I try to be really good. I have one more Christmas wish, and this one is more important than any other. Since I got so lucky to be adopted, I would like for you to help as many dogs and cats as possible find the perfect person this year. Santa, I really think all dogs and cats deserve a special home for Christmas and for EVERY day. I would rather you make that Christmas wish come true than get any of the toys that I asked for, even the tennis balls… and I LOVE tennis balls.
Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, Mr. Santa Paws. I hope to see you soon.
Everyone, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and get everything that you ask Santa for. If you can open your hearts and homes to a new furry child, you should because you will never regret it. If you can’t please support your local shelters and rescue groups this time of year as well as all year long.
