Peace on Earth Good-Will to Dogs
If you don't like Christmas stories, don't read this one!And if you don't like dogs I don't know just what to advise you to do! For I warn you perfectly frankly that I am distinctly pro-dog and distinctly pro-Christmas, and would like to bring to this little story whatever whiff of fir-balsam I can cajole from the make-believe forest in my typewriter, and every glitter of tinsel, smudge of toy candle, crackle of wrapping paper, that my particular brand of brain and ink can conjure up on a single keyboard! A lovely work by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott , published in 1920. The story is very simple, yet delightful: an 18 year old girl throws a great party for someone else's dogs at Christmas.
