Sometimes even Santa's helpers need a little help.
Sam, the elf, was attacked by a dog. Zoey, a german shepherd thought he looked good enough to eat - and amputated his arm.
Don't worry though. Sam still has all of his magic because everyone who touched him, including the folks at Orlando's Arnold Palmer Children's hospital worked to help him.
They used 'magic' gloves, and sprinkled Christmas magic on Sam when they were done.
Rumor has it Zoey's on the naughty list this year.
