What did 10-year-old Maria Labriola put on her list for Santa?

A crucifix for her bedroom, an evil-eye bracelet and the return of the beloved Joey, a 3-year-old Maltese/dachshund mix, which police say was taken during the burglary of her West Islip home.

"I know you can't get me everything I ask for but so if you can only get me Jojo I will be very happy," wrote Maria, a fifth-grader.
