FFHT - A Dream or NOT?

Note:  All the information on Fractured Fryday Hairy Tales (FFHT) can be found on the FFHT tab on the top of our blog.

This month's inclusions are:  "But I think you should know . . ." or a more seasonal inclusion "And then the chubby elf says . . ." Choose one (or else accept the challenge to fit them both in your story!).  But mostly, just have fun with it!

This is a true story or else a dream I had, I am not sure which.  On our very first Christmas, the one
where me and Stanley had our pictures taken with Santa, me and Stanley decided we were gonna wait up to see Santa Paws come to our house.  We tried to stay awake but at 10:00 p.m. mom said it was time for us to go to bed.  So I told Stanley we would wait until our pawrents fell asleep and then get back up.

So we went to bed and our pawrents turned the TV on to the Tonight Show, back then it was with Jay Leno.  Mom set the timer on the TV for 60 minutes (she always does) and then 5 minutes later she and dad were sound asleep (they always are).  So I signaled to Stanley and we carefully sneaked off the bed and tippy toed into the living room.

We heard a noise right away and Stanley was going to bark but I held my paw up to signal him not to bark.  He remembered the time his barking tipped mom and dad off that someone was trying to sneak in the kitchen window so ever since that happened and everybody called him a hero he likes to alert everyone if he hears a noise.

Anyway, as we made our way down the hall and into the living room we could see some movement.  As we got closer we could see that there was an elf.  It was NOT Santa Paws, it was a chubby elf!  So Stanley ran over to him and asked what he was doing and why wasn't Santa Paws with him.  Then the chubby elf says that Santa Paws was actually coming down our chimney!  So we quickly spun around and saw that he was right!  Santa Paws was nearly in our living room!  And then the chubby elf says, "But I think you should know if Santa Paws sees you in the living room he will disappear into thin air, totally vanish before he can even put your presents under the tree!  Upon hearing that, I looked at Stanley and he looked at me and we took off lightening fast down the hall and jumped back into bed.  We closed our eyes tight and fell asleep until morning.

In the morning I asked Stanley if what happened was real or a dream.  He said he didn't think it was real but thought it was weird that he had the same dream.

    Phew - just think, if you had been spotted by SantyPaws he might have thought you were ezcaped reindeer and you could have gone round the world as part of his team... but then again stayng at home with mum and dad and getting pressies and such would be just as much fun - so well done on listening to the elf!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Yes it must, it must be real. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  16. Dear Murphy and Stanley,

    YOU MET SANTA??? Was he nice? (Was he scary? Did you bark?) Did you tell him what you want for Christmas? Did he tell you what he's bringing ME? Were you very good?

    Merry Christmas friends!

    Licks and wags,

  17. To our good friends who might see Santa Paws before we do-tell him to swing by Colorado.
    Wishing you a joy filled Christmas! We are thankful for you all.

  19. OMD! We were on the edge of our seats to hear what happened! I was ready with my FFHT story, but mom did what she calls "piddle-farted" around and didn't relay my story. She is lucky that I love her and she gives good belly rubs or we'd have big problems! I hope that you continue these stories in 2015.


Don't just sniff around, leave your mark with a comment so we know you've stopped by. Wags!!
