Hello Folks. Scout The Wonder Dog here,
I am in charge of security here on the ranch, and there has been an issue that needs to be addressed. A few weeks ago, the people I am guarding started acting funny and dragging trees and branches into the house. I thought that was OK... I like branches. Then they hung up lights and stockings and other strange things. It put me on alert. Something was up!
Soon the house was full of boxes with bright paper around them. Was I supposed to guard all of those too? It was a big job for one dog. To make matters worse, the people in the house kept saying, "Sandy Claws is coming". I didn't know who this character was, but he wasn't getting in here! I stepped up my patrols, roaming the house with my ears perked up.
Then it happened... someone got in the house! I never heard a sound, but Christmas Eve somebody sneaked in and left more stuff! I awoke to find the sock hanging by my kennel full of doggy toys and treats. I did a quick look around the house. He had left stuff everywhere!
To make sure there was nothing dangerous, I emptied the stocking, and ripped open some presents. Hmmm... nothing but toys and treats. Maybe this "Sandy Claws" guy ain't so bad. Even if he is a good guy, I don't appreciate his sneaking around. Thanks for the toys Sandy Claws, but next year you better knock on the door!
