Extract from Wish of the Wee Golden: a Bubba Tails Christmas
Patty L. Fletcher
The Thanksgiving holiday had just passed, and to Jane, the wee golden, it seemed, that wonderful day called, Christmas would simply never ever arrive.
She’d heard many wondrous stories about that magickal jolly dog dressed all in red fur named, Santa Paws, but she just did not know if she could believe or not.
It seemed to her, there were pictures of the human Santa everywhere, but never did there ever seem to be anything anywhere about this famous Santa Paws.
Whenever she and her friends met at Puppy Raiser Club meetings with their humans, the older dogs just laughed and said, “Silly pup, no one’s seen him in many many years, but everyone knows he’s real. Who do you think leaves the doggy stockings filled with treats and toys, for all the good little doggy girls and boys?”
She knew older dogs were smarter than she, but how come there was not even one picture or story of him any-place? Not even in that most awesome store World of Pets was there a sign of him.
The only reason she knew of him at all was because of one of the excitable shepherds, named Barkly.
Barkly was very smart, he told wonderful stories, and seemed to know lots about just almost everything.
He said that Santa Paws was a great and handsome dog, much like King Campbell, but rather than a kingly robe, and crown, he wore a red furry suit, trimmed in white, and he had a snowy white beard underneath his muzzle.
Soon there was talk of a special Christmas gathering for all the puppies, and their human families. It was to be a glorious time, with food, presents, and even special homemade doggy treats, made just for all the puppies.
There were to be wise and ancient trainers from The Seeing Eye, and someone had said that even King Campbell might be there.
Little Jane, was not very happy to be going.
While she would very much love to see King Campbell, she’d heard that there would be the human Santa, but nothing about Santa Paws, and this disappointed her to no end.
A few weeks before the party, her family began to decorate the house for Christmas. Jane did have to admit that the Christmas tree smelled quite good, and like it might be good for chewing.
She knew she wasn’t supposed to, but it was so very big, surely the humans wouldn’t miss just a bit.
When the tree was all decorated, Karen, her most favorite human of her family, picked her up and snuggled her very close. “Jane, you see that star on top of the tree?”
Jane wagged her tail to say she did.
“That star is a magickal star, and if you make a wish on that star, it will come true.”

In this magical and love filled tail, King Campbell AKA Bubba travels to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of puppies who are just about to embark on the fabulous journey of learning to become Seeing Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened of all that lies ahead, and one frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they find her and save her so she can fulfill her destiny?
The use of Tail instead of Tale for story and Magik instead of Magic is intended for these short stories. A great play on words from King Campbell.
