Last Christmas Sam was so upset because he had asked Santa for two otters, and only got one. You see, I don't think Santa (or his elves) understood that the reason he NEEDED two otters was because he only had four, and wanted a family of six, just like his own. He was a little miffed at Santa. So you can imagine his delight when St. Nick saved the day (or the year, however you look at it) and stuck one more baby otter in his stocking this year. The otter family is now complete. And Sam is a happy boy.
ps...for those who don't know Sam he is OBSESSED with otters!
