Hi all. I wrote this for my niece who lives up in New York (I am in Florida), and she loved it... hope you all enjoy it too! â€˜Twas the (doggieâ€™s) Night Before Christmas â€˜Twas the night before Christmas, we were all quite chilly, Mom, Buck and Penny, even plush coated Millie. So I pulled out our blankets, all made of fleece, And asked for a treat from the dogsâ€¦ some peace! There was noise on the rooftop, and the dogs made such clatter! I gave them a look that said, â€œWhatâ€™s the matter?â€ They went on the balcony and looked towards the sky, And were almost blinded by a red light in their eye. They saw it was a reindeer up high on the roof, And each of the dogs let out a huge â€œWOOF!â€ The neighbor next door did pound on the wall, So I yelled to the dogs â€œBe quiet you all!â€ They came back inside, got back under their blankies, Cause they knew mom was mad; they wanted no spankies. I tried to believe all my dogs were so nice, But all that was left in their bowl was some ice. They saw this old man in a red suit take flight, And what do the dogs do? They jump up and bite! So I guess weâ€™re already on the naughty list next year, How could they do that; theyâ€™re usually so dear. What I learned is on Christmas Eve when itâ€™s late, For the dogs to be good I better put them in their crate. So what everyone learned, Penny, Buck, Mom and Millie, It pays to stay under the covers when chilly.
