good first sentence. and good Christmas story.
I have a question, if you don't mind, that struck me right off the bat, though I may be missing something here. IF the mother left him in that orphanage, why did she have to look for him for years?
Also, when she says, "May I sit down, George?" I child would probably say something like, "Sure. How did you find me?"
I hope I didn't offend. These were just two things out of your story that bothered me. It is a good, heart-warming Christmas story.

    Good heavens, I had to go back and take a look at my work. So long ago I wrote that. I think she surrendered George and later decided to look for him. No offence taken, it's good to have input into writing. Thanks so much. I have written much since that Lost and Found. Blessings, Kay.

Hello Kay

What a fantastic read ...held my attention all the way through. Charming and delightful Christmas story and so well told. I love the interaction of George and Spud ... and their so cold, long wait. Just in the nick of time ... George is transported to warmth and safety. Great dialogue throughout ... natural flow and real. So nice to read a happy ending after the horror we've faced in Sydney this week. Definitely made me feel good. Such a lovely touch with your ending, George not only found his mother and was safe from harm, he received the perfect Christmas gift. Great work. I wish you the best of luck in the contest. Also a very joyous and blessed Christmas and holiday season to you and yours. Huge Hershey hugs - Lovi xoxoxoxo Sorry I have no sixes, or you would have had one for this superb writing.

Hi Kay, I sent you an e-mail, I hope you received it. I think this story is superb and wanted to give it a 6. I will update it on Sunday if I can, because this is a brilliant story and an excellent Christmas story. It is perfect for children, dreams and prayers and letters to Santa do come true, as you story tell us. And I do honestly believe in miracles! Excellent my fried, and good luck in the contest. (It brought tears to my eyes!!!) xsx sandra

    Hello Sandra Seagull! Thanks so much for your kind review; moved you to tears? Then, I have done my job. I loved writing it. I had help with re-writing it, from a novelist on site, he thinks I am a talented writer err...I was so chuffed. Lots of Love, Kay :-)XX

I like how the spirit of the dog was taking of the little boy,I like to think that my pets who have passed on are still watching over me. This is a wonderful Christmas story that makes the reader feel good. It is an excellent entry for the contest. I also liked how the man who looked like Santa worked for emergency services.

It's a very sweet story about a son and mother. I liked the idea of the ghost dog coming to take care of the child until Santa could get there to rescue him. Then the mother is found just in time. A good entry for the contest Kay! :<) Nancy

Kay, this is just a beautiful Christmas story. The fact it follows a contest guideline doesn't take anything away from it. So often, they seem contrived to fit the sentence, but I didn't feel that way about this piece. Good luck in the contest, my friend. And the very merriest of Christmases to you!
Love, Bev
