Dear Santa Paws

This has been a hard year to behave. I am 2 years old now and have tried to be nice most of the time and naughty only a few times. I am sure I am on your Nice list.
This year I would like some chew treats and some more squeaky today. I would like a new pink color with a matching leash. My favorite think to play with is human socks, so if you have some extra ones I would appreciate them. I also really like tennis balls that squeak as I wake up the family each day with them.
I also wish you would bring the puppy next door some treats and toys. He is always barking at me but he is not too naughty. Of course I will enjoy surprises also.
Santa, I know you will be busy but don't forget me your friend Heidi. Here is a picture of me just in case you forgot. I am wearing my Christmas dress for you.
See you on Christmas Eve.
