If you haven’t already caught the first part of Fluffy’s story, you can check it out here.

Santa’s Penguin Patrol laughed at Fluffy for not listening to Santa’s orders to stand down. A small group snarked, “Ya better watch out, or Santa’s going to cast you out to Snow Drift Village, where all the castaways go.” Fluffy, scowled holding his ground and replied, “Santa would never do that, he’s got a place for everyone.” Puddles, laughed, “You’re such a dreamer! Get your head out of the clouds, Penguins can’t fly!”

Fluffy held his confident pose, until Puddles and his Waddle of followers were all out of sight and sound. Then, his head dropped and he slumped against the wall. Caught up in his thoughts, he didn’t hear the Captain come in. The sound of the Captain’s commanding voice, “Lieutenant Fluffy, you’ve been summoned to Santa’s office,” startled him back to his surroundings. He quickly rose to attention, “Yes Mam!”

Thought’s of panic and despair rushed through Fluffy’s mind, breaking his usual confidence and optimism. Puddle’s words echoed in his mind as he rushed to his igloo and packed his suitcase, ready to run away if it came down to his being cast out. His usual confident determination slowly snuck back in as he marched bravely up the long walk to Santa’s office. As he reached the door he was greeted pleasantly by Holly, Santa’s head elf. She cheerfully held the door open for Fluffy and asked if she could get him a cocoa.       

Fluffy responded feeling more at ease, “Yes please, with extra whip and chocolate sprinkles if it’s you don’t mind.” She gave a big reassuring smile, “It’s no trouble at all.” Of course Santa’s head elf would be extra friendly and generous he thought to himself. After all, Santa was always so jolly and giving. He began to laugh at his worry over what Puddles had said, he was just trying to look tough in front of the other penguins.

Fluffy puffed out his chest and stood at attention as he saluted Santa, “Lieutenant Fluffy reporting for duty Sir.” Santa chuckled, bemused by such formality, not even the captain talked to him this way. Granted, she had known him for many years. Whereas, this was a new troop trying to prove himself. Little did he know, his honorable bravery had already earned him Santa’s deepest respect.

“Lieutenant Fluffy, at ease my brave little troop,” Santa said kindly. Fluffy’s eyes grew wide, with surprise. Santa let out a soft chuckle as Holly brought Fluffy his cocoa. Fluffy looked up at Santa with questioning eyes, but before he could speak a word…Santa said, “Let’s go for a walk to the stables I’d like you to meet a vet special friend.” Fluffy felt a little confused, but happily followed Santa. “Now, before we get there what you’re about to learn is top secret,” Santa uttered in hushed tones. Fluffy couldn’t believe he was being let in something top secret, by Santa himself!
