This is a post that first appeared in 2012. We are reprinting it to help the young pups of Blogville learn the truth about Santa Paws!
We heard stories about a fella named Santa Paws BUTT we did not know if he was real or not! Some doggies said he was real and others said he was NOT! So we decided we would find our for ourselves. We started our journey . . .
We went to nearby Christmas Village. If Santa Paws was REAL we thought we would find him there. BUTT we did NOT!
We went to the little cottages and asked, "Have you seen Santa Paws"?
One by one, everyone we asked either did NOT reply or said they had NOT seen Santa Paws!
We even went to the manger and no one there knew anything about Santa Paws! Butt then someone said we should look downtown.
So we went downtown and we found 87 million Santa Paws! They must ALL be fakes! How can there be so many? We were feeling desperate! Then we overheard a rumor that one of the reindeer who helped pull the sleigh for Santa Paws was in town. We decided we would go see and ask the reindeer about Santa Paws!
We thought it would be best if we blended in. So Stanley wore a disguise so he would look like a reindeer too! It was pawfect and no one suspected a thing! Stanley looked at the reindeer nose-to-nose.
When Stanley asked about Santa Paws the reindeer quickly turned away saying, "I don't know what you're talking about!"
Then another reindeer came over and whispered to Stanley that Santa Paws was REAL! He told us where to find him too!
Stanley told the reindeer that his secret was safe with him as the reindeer wandered away.
Stanley just stood around a minute, acting all calm . . .
I walked over to him and the first reindeer came back over and asked Stanley what the other reindeer said to him. Stanley replied, "Nothing! He didn't say a word!"
Then the reindeer added, "If you know what's good for you, you'll forget anything he said!"
I whispered in Stanley's ear that we better get out of there. It smelled dangerous!
So after we got away from the reindeer, Stanley told me what the second reindeer said to him. He told Stanley where to find Santa Paws!!
We found Santa Paws exactly where the reindeer said we would. Santa Paws said he already knew about us even though it was our first Christmas! It was wonderful to sit on Santa's lap! And now we know that Santa Paws is REAL!
