Surprise delivery from Santa for Oceanside family

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Santa had a busy night delivering toys but he didn't finish his route until Tuesday morning. Seems he had one last stop to make here in San Diego.

Twas the morning of Christmas and a gift you can't hide,

Left Santa with one delivery to the town of Oceanside.

Her name is Carly, not even a year old,

She's been living in a shelter so Santa's been told.

Santa checked his list, and checked it twice,

To find a family for Carly that's really nice.

Jessica is 13, Catie 11,

And their present from Santa -- a little slice of heaven.

The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is where this all started,

The girls met the dog and then departed.

So mom and dad called the shelter in need of a plan,

To add Carly the dog to the Pentlarge clan.

Santa wanted in on the family surprise,

Because as a 6-year-old in Iowa -- a similar experience opened his eyes.

The beagle mix didn't even need a shove,

She quickly took to her new family and is now smothered in love.

 

Santa also delivered toys and a bed for Carly before heading home to the North Pole to get some much needed rest.
