<p>Santa loves his reindeer. But what happens when he decides to let dogs pull his sleigh? What kind of dog would be best?</p><br />The Labradors made too much noise, the mastiffs were too big, and the greyhounds were too fast. Santa tried poodles, Pekingese, pit bulls, Shar-Peis, Dalmatians, dachshunds, basset hounds, sheepdogs, and even mutts. He wound up adopting all the dogs, but none could replace the reindeer.<br />Award-winning author Jerry Pallotta delivers a humorous Christmas tale that reimagines what Santa's sleigh ride would be like with dogs. Young dog lovers will bark and howl along as they see Santa Claus give every dog a chance. Will Terry's illustrations show the zany fun of what happens when Santa lets dogs do a reindeer's job.
