    ~~Forgotten Dog’s Christmas~~

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

    The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
    In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

    The children were nestled all snug in their beds
    With no thought of the dog filling their head

    And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and him in his cap
    Knew he was cold, but didn’t care about that

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
    He sprang from the bed to see what was the matter

    Away to the window he flew like a flash
    Figuring the dog was free of his chain and into the trash

    The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
    Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below

    When, what to his wondering eyes should appear
    But Santa Claus and reindeer – with eyes full of tears

    He un-chained the dog, once so lively and quick
    Last year’s Christmas present, now all thin and sick

    More rapid than eagles he called the dog’s name
    And the dog ran to him, despite all his pain

    “Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
    On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONNER and BLITZEN!

    To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
    Let’s find this dog a home where he’ll be loved by all.”

    He knew in an instant there would be no gifts this year
    For Santa Claus had made one thing quite clear

    The gift of a dog is not just for the season
    They had gotten the pup for all the wrong reasons

    In their haste to think of the kids a gift
    There was one important thing that they missed

    A dog should be family, and cared for the same
    You don’t give a gift, then put it on a chain

    And he heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight

    “You weren’t given a gift! You were given a LIFE!”

    thanks to all those that have given a rescue dog a forever home this year  🙂


    Thats so sad but lovely too  :'(  :-*


    How true  :'( – though when I got to the bit with him calling the reindeer I thought he was going to get them to kick holes in the house or something – but that wouldn’t be very Santa.


    I really like that, did you write that Bev


    no it was sent to me dont know who the writer is  🙂


    Thought it was time to bump this 😉


    So true, Toby’s first Gotcha day is 3rd January. it’s not been without its difficulties, wee man, but it has been a wonderful year
