"Oh yes, Santa, I've been a very good girl this year . . . please bring me some food, LOTS of food; a slipper of my own to toss around the room so I won't need to steal other people's; long walks; playtime at the Golden Paw; and beaucoup snuggling. Hey, wait--other than the slipper, I already HAVE all of those things! (More food, though, please.)"
Merry Christmas, one and all . . .
