It seems that every year, the dogs get Bunny to type their letters to Santa. Since she’s a modern hound, she types them on the computer and that means that I can see them after she saves them. They usually entertain me and so I share them here the week before Christmas while we’re getting ready for the holidays. Today, we’re sharing Morgan’s letter and I hope you enjoy it.
I hope this letter finds you well. As a lady who’s starting to feel her age, I have more appreciation for how a year takes its toll on you. I don’t know how you keep getting in that sleigh every year and making your big trip, but I’m glad that you do. I can understand your dedication to the job, too, because I feel the same way about my job.
Of course, my job is important, too. If I weren’t here to keep my humans and the rest of the pack safe, I’m sure they’d all have been attacked by kamikaze rabbits by now. They really have no sense of danger whatsoever. Even though I’m getting older, I have to be just as vigilant as ever to keep danger at bay. I know you have all those kids around the world depending on you, but you don’t know what it’s like to have the constant threat of danger lurking around. I’m glad you don’t, because we all need you sleeping well at night. I shudder to think about what could happen if you fell asleep at the, er, reins while you were on the job.
I’m hoping that you can help me out this year with a few things to make my job easier. I need to be able to keep a close eye on my humans, our property and the outer perimeter. I hear there are camera surveillance systems for this and that you can keep track of your loved ones with much greater precision now with advanced technology. My deepest wish is just to keep them safe and with me all the time. If I had this stuff, I could sleep easier myself, knowing the alarm would sound if danger was near.
Also, if it’s not too much trouble, I wouldn’t mind if you threw in a Honky Pig. They’re my favorite toys in the world, even if they don’t last forever. Aside from that, there isn’t anything I could want for. I’ve been too busy keeping an eye on everyone to get into any trouble, so hopefully that means I’m on the Nice List.
Your Devoted Shepherd,
