To all my readers, thank you for your support and friendship. May you have a peaceful holiday season with your loved ones. Here is one of my favorite dog poems of all time. Enjoy!
A CHRISTMAS WITH DOGS
– Taken from the Internet: Author unknown
It’s the day before Christmas, and all through the house,
the puppies are squeaking an old rubber mouse.
The wreath which had merrily hung on the door
is scattered in pieces all over the floor.
The stockings that hung in neat little rows
now boast a new hole in each of the toes.
The tree was subjected to holiday whims,
and now, although splendid, is missing some limbs.
I catch them and hold them. Be good I insist.
They lick me, then run off to see what they’ve missed.
And now as I watch them, the thought comes to me,
that theirs is the spirit that Christmas should be.
Should children and puppies yet show us the way,
and teach us that joy that should come with this day?
Could they bring the message that’s written above,
and tell us that Christmas is all about love!
