My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Okay gang, if we're going to do this, we're going to do this properly!! I think the suggestions so far have been great (with a special commendation going out to Billy Battles' "Bob"!) but it turns out that Santa has some rules.......
Will you help name Santa's sleigh this year?
There are just a couple of things to remember:
1. The sleigh ALWAYS has a girl's name. Santa didn't explain why this is. But he always refers to the sleigh as "she" or "her". He always says things like "She's a beauty this year!" or "Listen to her bells ring!". So the name has to be a girl's name.
2. Santa can only pick out one name. From time to time, we will post a list of names that have been suggested. But Santa won't pick out the winner until Christmas Eve day. That's right...you'll have to follow the Santa Updates on Christmas Eve day and track Santa around the world with us in order to learn if your entry won!
3. Your entry needs to be in by December 15th, 2008.
4. What's the prize? Why, a Merry Christmas, of course! (Santa will leave our winner a little something extra special in their stocking this year!)
