Santa Puppy

A short and sweet novella

With a Christmas-grumpy Jill

And her handsome, supportive boyfriend Greg.

Family and friends

A cookie exchange

Older rescue dogs needing a new forever home

And a magical Santa flitting in and out of Jill’s vision.

Memorable Lines:

I reached out and ran my hand over a tree’s needles. They were soft, and the smell that covered my hand was Christmas in a bottle.

For a lot of years, celebrating the holidays just brought on memories of a past we couldn’t recreate. This year, with the addition of friends and loved ones it felt like the holidays again.

“Regrets are just a way of not dealing with today. You can’t change the past, now, can you?”


  1. A Sweet story to get you in the mood for Christmas.
