Remember that big ole stocking on our wall that was filled with surprises from mom and dad and presents from Santy. Well, it had treats, chews, stuffies, and all that stuff in it, we just knew it did. AND we also had that big ole bag of chews from Jones Natural Chews that Flea and her Hunny had brought to us. So we told Gussie that Santa needed his help with one more thing. We toles him Santa was running behind on his schedule and that he needed Gussie to do a special delivery from him. Well, little Angus perked right up and ran into the closet and got on his winter coat.
And he picked up that sack of Jones Natural Chews
We turned on the Christmas music, got in our seatbelts, and Mom shouted on Stella Rose, on Margaret Mae and on Angus McConnell. We were all a laughing and Gussie was a beaming.
We drove through the night and came to a gate that said Dog Sanctuary. We beeped our little horn and this lovely woman came out and open the gate for us. We saw big dogs, and bigger dogs, and biggest dogs. They were barking and running and happy to see us.
(These are old pictures cos it was to dark to take new ones)
We told her that Santa left a package at our house and Angus needed to do his job and deliver it here at her place. Angus recognized her right off the bat as his teacher when he was going to puppy college and he showed her he still knows how to SIT and LAY DOWN, he even listened really well to mom when she called his name. He also told her all about his mission and how he and his girls wanted to bring their stocking to give to these doggies, who are waiting on their forever homes. Ms. Melody gave us all a hug and told us thank you. We also told her that not only was Angus doing a job for Santa he was doing a job for Rory.
On our way home, Momma shared that little secret with us also. Remember our friend Rory the Great Dane, who lost the use of his back legs, and how much we all really really wanted him to get to come home for Christmas. Well, we tole his Momma once we found out that he got to come home, we wanted to do something really special in his name. Mission Successful.
We slept all the way home, and listened to Christmas songs playing in our hearts. Angus told us this was the best first Christmas evers!!!
