Billy had been hoping for a puppy for Christmas. He had asked Santa for it and could hardly wait until Christmas morning.
He got up and snuck downstairs and snooped among the Christmas gifts under the tree. No barking puppy greeted him. He was disappointed and wondered what he had done wrong that Santa hadn’t brung him a puppy.
His family came down and they started opening gifts although Billy could barely keep from crying.
Finally him parents told him that if he couldn’t put on a happy face and be thankful for what he got then he could just go to his bedroom and go back to bed. He didn’t move.
“Go!” his father ordered him coming in from the hallway.
Billy trudged down to his room. He opened the door and lying on his bed was the most beautful puppy in the world and it even wore a santa hat. His tears dried up magically and he snuggled the pup. He turned to find his family in the doorway with smiles on their face.
“Surprise!” they yelled in unison.
“Santa did hear me,” he whispered with surprise still showing on his face.
