Trip's Christmas Wish
My name is Trip, short for Tripod , as I only have three legs. It doesn't bother me though. I still get around better than my mom on her best day. She says I'm "fast as lightning". My Christmas wish is that my poppa would stop smoking. It's not good for me and my mom is always upset when he lights a cigarette in the house where I can breathe it. She says she does everything in the world to keep me healthy. But she can't make him stop and I wish he'd stop not only so she'd stop worrying so much, since I mean the world to her, but also for my health. I overheard her say the vets confirm that if your pet is in a non-smoking household it improves their lifespan. And I need to be around a long time for my mommy.

I know that I'm pretty little but I want to make sure that there will be something for me under the tree, but I'm not sure what "the tree" is. I am Jessie and I'm 5 months old and I'm a black Labrador Retriever. I live with my birth mother, Belle and my half brother Ben, (they're black Labs, too) and my mommy and daddy too. They didn't plan on keeping me after mama Belle's 10 other puppies
went to their homes, but mommy says that she saved the best one for herself. Santa, I have to eat from my food bowl on the floor, not a raised up one like Ben and Belle have. I'd love to have a new food dish with legs so that I don't have to break my neck to eat. And if it's not asking too much, could you bring me my very own Nylabone? My half brother, Ben, could always use a few thousand tennis balls. Ben would rather chase tennis balls than eat, and that's really saying something! Mama Belle would really love it if you brought her her own rabbit, because she chases them all the time but she can't catch them, but then, she climbs trees to catch birds, too. One time, she caught one and brought it to mommy. I think that if you can bring us these things, we'd be so happy. My mommy tells me that I am her gift every day but she tells Ben and mama Belle that, too. I'll be listening for you on Christmas Eve but mommy says that I'm a good sleeper (I cuddle in bed with her and daddy) so I might not hear you. Thank you, Santa for whatever presents you can bring to me and my family.

Dear Santa (I know you are a Greyhound);
I have been a very good greyhound and my mom loves me so much she gives me everything I need. So I was wondering if you could just bring some of my racing buddies a mom like I got. That would be a great gift. If that is asking too much, maybe you could just deliver them a few packages of flea treatments or some chew toys or treats as they dont get to have these things in the racing/adoption kennels. That would make me very happy and I would promise to be good for another year --or more.
Love, Junior (Scoobs)
PS I really could use a new stuffed hedgehog!
