Ani’s Advent Invitation: Maggie’s letter to Santa (with a little help from pensitivity101)

I had a lovely note from Maggie. “I’m with you all the way, Ani,” she wrote. “Being dressed up is more for Two Legs, so here’s my letter to Santa to help you out.” Maggie has not been very well lately, so I really appreciate her taking time to help out. She has a really nice two-legs who has looked after her and got her feeling a bit better again. That’s just what you do when you care about people…whether they have two legs or four.


Mind you, I could have used the smelling salts myself when I first saw a picture of Maggie! I thought I was seeing double or something… or that I was going grey around the muzzle all at once! Well….it was uncanny…


So I’m really glad Maggie has written to Santa! I mean, what if he showed up and took one look at me, then decided he must have already been here! Mind you, I agree with her… we don’t really need much, just love and fun and perhaps a bit of turkey…

Much love, Ani xxx

Maggie’s letter to Santa


Dear Santa,

Hope this finds you jolly and well.

I thought I’d let you know that we’re not on the boat this year, instead we are in a house, so this means we might be getting a bigger tree. Please don’t worry, there’s no need for lots of parcels as I know my mummy will see to it that we have a fun day with nice things to eat and my daddy will make a big fuss of me.

We’re close to the sea so I hope your sled doesn’t get blown off course as the wind can be a bit nippy and nifty, so wrap up warm.

All I’m asking for is a nice sunny day on Dec 25th as I’ve heard we are going for a car ride to the forest just like old times. I don’t mind if it’s cold as I have my little jacket but dry and sunny would be appreciated if you could manage it please.

I’m trying hard not to get too excited at the prospect of seeing some of my old friends. I’ve also got to be careful not to overdo things and hurt myself again, so I am being really good and sleeping a lot.

Have a safe trip.
