Jessie ran into Angel’s pen and enthusiastically licked her across the face. She whined and thumped her tail against the ground.
Angel patiently waited for Jessie to stop and when she didn’t she let out a low but friendly growl.
Santa laughed. He had been so busy lately he hadn’t had chance to visit the farm where Angel lived. Santa wanted Jessie to have friends and he had to check on the care of the sick animals, So Santa packed Jessie onto his snowmobile and headed out towards the outskirts of the village.
Santa was pleased that Angel and Jessie got along so well. He wanted Jessie to be happy at the North Pole and having friends would help.
“I’m heading in to check on Willy the polar bear. His paw got caught in a trap, and has a nasty infection. Why don’t you hang around here until Myles comes by Jessie,and then meet me at the veterinary clinic.”
