Santa's Dog is a rhyming holiday story for children. The story begins with showing all the different dogs Santa has. But, Lance is Santa's favorite dog.

One year, Lance travels with Santa to deliver presents during Christmas one year and accidentally is left behind! What is a dog to do? Without a way back to Santa, Lance is sent to a shelter to be adopted. He is soon adopted by a family whose father is in the military and is on active duty. While the family is sad without their dad, they show love and kindness to Lance and is loved in return. But, by next Christmas, will Lance stay or go back by Santa? Lance may just be the best gift Santa could provide!

Santa's Dog is a short story that will warm your heart and children will love. It may be a bit long for children younger than 4, who may not want to sit all the way through, but it has colorful and cute drawings that will be sure to entertain children of all ages. The story itself advocates for the adoption of pets, and a portion of each purchase will support animal rescue causes. This is the first in a series of "Santa Dog" book, so be sure to check it out when it is published this upcoming July!
