All my life, I have been obsessed with seals. I have dreams about them every night since i was a toddler. I have seen a seal before at the zoo in Juneau, but I wanted one of my own.
When my family and I went to Juneau for the one time a month, I saw Santa at the mall! Since this was my only chance to, I asked Santa for a seal. After I got my candy cane and a picture, we headed to the door. As we were in front of the door I asked myself, is this a wish or my destiny?
After my cat Oscar woke me up, I realized it was Christmas. I pet my dog, Penny, who was begging for attention until she noticed the roomba, which she had to chase. I woke my parents up then I ran to the front door to see if a pinniped would appear in my vision.
Somebody I have been longing for for years was standing right in front of me! I was so elated that i couldn't even breathe! I didn't even know what to do so I pet him for 5 minutes before offering him inside. I decided to name him Comet.
Because I wanted to play with my new seal so bad, I didn't open the rest of my presents until supper. For breakfast, Comet, Oscar, and I had fish that my parents caught the day before. I also made a fish slushie (snow with tuna juice mixed in) for my pets and I to share.
After we finished breakfast, we went outside to play in the everlasting snow. Comet and I built a snowman together, then went sledding when we finished. We had many sled races, Comet, an inexperienced sled racer, won most of them!
