The Last Christmas Puppy
by Roxanne Rustand

Alone over Thanksgiving yet again, widow Maura Stevens figures the Christmas holidays will be just as lonely. Or will they?

With her baby due in four weeks, her daughter and son-in-law can't travel to Wyoming. And after a dying friend recently left a pregnant basset hound and a feisty cockatiel in Maura's care, she can't travel to see them, either.

Now she has eight-week-old puppies romping in her kitchen and a cockatiel barking orders and singing opera tunes at her as she contemplates the future. Finding homes for the animals hasn't been easy in this tiny town hidden up in the Wyoming Rockies. All six pups were going to their forever homes this week, but now one family has backed out, andnoone has enquired about the cockatiel or the puppies' mother.

One mysterious gentleman called about the last puppy several times, then abruptly ghosted her. Another came to demand the last puppy, but she felt instantly uncomfortable with his rude manner, sensing that he wouldn't be a loving owner.

A break-in, while she goes to town, leaves her cabin in shambles, and now that poor puppy is missing. Stolen? Or did he escape the melee and become lost in the timber?

With a winter storm approaching, can she hope for an early Christmas miracle?
