The Dog who Saved Santa.

By Evan Colborne, Grade 3

Chapter 1 – Flash gets a Chew Toy!

Five years ago, in a house, lived a dog named Flash. She was a Husky. She was a very kind dog, but right now she was feeling gloomy even though it was only 6 days until Christmas. Annie, her owner, just finished dinner and was about to feed Flash.

After dinner, Flash ran upstairs because after dinner the cat comes back. The cat’s name is Black, Black is a black cat. So, Flash went up the stairs to chase the cat down the stairs to come back up the stairs! Black was frightened and jumped out the window. That done, Flash went to sleep.

Days passed and it was Christmas Eve. Flash went on a walk around the street, there was so much snow! Flash and her best friend Snowball, the doggie down the street, had a wonderful snowball fight! When afternoon approached she had to head home.

When Flash came in through her dog door, she saw her owner Annie holding a Christmas Eve present. Annie called Flashover, and Annie passed the present to Flash. Flash walked fast up the stairs holding the present in her mouth and looking proud! When she got up the stairs into her room, she tore and ripped through the wrapping paper! Surprisingly, there was more than one layer of wrapping paper. BOO YA! Flash thought to herself, Flash got her first giant chew toy! She started chewing it but as soon as Flash started chewing, she slowly started to fade away. Now she was completely gone! Ten seconds later Black came back through the window. The chew toy was still there, so of course Black licked it, and he was gone too! They were transported to the North Pole!!

Chapter 2 – The Problem

As soon as Flash fell to the ground, in the cold snow, she took one look and thought to herself that it was a super beautiful but crazy place! Flash was wondering why everything was so messy! Flash realized where she was, and started to sniff out Santa.

When the trail ended she was at the giant Christmas tree. Suddenly Flash heard a noise behind her, she looked back and it was Black! Flash let out a happy bark! Black meowed back. They looked up to the tippy-top of the tree, there was Santa! Santa looked down to them, “Hi” said Santa “will you guys help me get down from here?” “Okay” barked Flash. So Flash held on to the bottom of the tree while Black climbed up the tree with a rope in his mouth. Black gave Santa the rope and Santa tied it around himself while the elves prepared a trampoline under Santa.

Black climbed down the tree and then Santa jumped down and landed on his face, which gave him a rosy complexion. Black ran over as soon as the elves were done petting him. Santa led them to the barn where the reindeer were. Flash asked why there isn’t that many reindeer. Santa answered back “Well, Rudolph is on vacation and one of the reindeer died. So now I only have seven reindeer. You know that present that Annie gave you? I had magic put on it so that you and Black would come here”. Black started to meow. Santa can talk cat, Black was asking how he had put the magic there. “I didn’t, I sent a couple of my fairies to put the magic on the present”.

Chapter 3 – The Save

“So, back to what I brought you here for, I was wondering if you could help me pull my sleigh?” “Would I?, Yeeesss!” yelped Flash. “But what will Black do?” “He will ride with me” said Santa. “Okay, Let’s go!” said Flash and Black.

“We had better hurry so that we can get all the presents delivered and you two home!” Santa told the elves to get the sleigh ready, they sprinkled magic dust on the reindeer, and Flash too! Now they were ready to go, Flash was leading.

“First stop is Flash and Black’s house!” bellowed Santa. The reindeer and Flash pranced down to their house, as soon as they landed Annie ran out of the house looking worried. She hugged them and smiled. For Christmas Annie got a kitten, she named the kitten ‘Star’. And that was the story of the dog who saved Santa!

By Kayden Ursulak, age five

It was December 24th, 2017, everyone in 5922 Stewart St. Were fast asleep in their beds.

Rosie and Zoey were cuddled up by the fire patiently waiting for Santa to arrive, when all of a sudden, they heard a big bang on top of the roof.

Rosie then woke up Zoey in excitement telling her Santa was here, while they sat waiting for Santa to come down the chimney they heard him yell. “ouch that’s hot”

Zoey then spoke up then said, “oh no Santa can’t get in because Dad forgot to put out the stove before he went to bed” Rosie then told Zoey “its ok, he can just come through the front door” at that moment they heard foot steps coming up the steps and then seen the handle trying to turn. “The door is locked Kayden is going to be sad in the morning when she wakes up” Cried Zoey, Rosie calmed Zoey down and told her she had an idea.

“Come” Rosie told Zoey, jump on my back and unlock the door for Santa. Zoey then jumped on Rosie back and tried to reach the lock, she was just big enough.

“I got it” Zoey yelled, as they stepped back and watch open in came a big man all dressed in red, “Thank you Rosie and Zoey” Said Santa “I was so worried I wasn’t going to get in now I have to try and get all the presents down from the roof if only I was a fast climber”

“I am” said Zoey, Rosie then thought of an idea, “why don’t you jump onto the roof Zoey, slide the presents off ill grab them bring them to the door then Santa can place them under the tree” Explained Rosie.

And one by one they gently placed each present inside while Santa was enjoying his milk and cookies that Kayden left for him the night before, and as soon as Santa was done he leaped up with excitement and thanked Rosie and Zoey for giving him a helping hand with the presents he special made for Kayden. He then tossed Rosie a bone, Cat Toy for Zoey and then through a log on the stove while collecting his big red sack and made his departure for the rest of the world.
