Author's summary: A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, Luke Smith
Recced because: It's an adorable Sarah Jane Adventures story about what happens when Sarah has to write a magazine review about a robot dog. Of course, the dog isn't exactly up to K9's standards. Luke misinterprets a casual comment made by Sarah and takes matters into his own hands, which leads to a touching resolution. This fic is just sweet enough without being overly saccharine.
"What can I write about you?" she asked it. It might be the most exciting new release for Christmas, but it was just a dog and she didn't need another one of those, whether real or robotic.
In reply it came closer, tail wagging madly all the time.
She smiled and shook her head, but knelt on the floor to give it some attention. "You really are just like a dog." Although that was probably supposed to be the point. It was just that she was used to a dog that was a little more like a computer or a person as well.
