Jessie, the lovable dog, here with a special Christmas poem to keep you in the spirit:
I found this fun holiday poem at corsinet.com and thought I would share it with you today. No matter what your faith, your philosophy, or persuasion, I just want to wish you a very blessed holiday season and a wonderful 2013! This poem is for all the dogs that take care of their humans, even when their loving efforts may seem to backfire! This is too cute not to share! Enjoy!
by Shel Silverstein
Tonight’s my first night as a watchdog,
And here it is Christmas Eve.
The children are sleeping all cozy upstairs,
While I’m guardin’ the stockin’s and tree.
What’s that now—footsteps on the rooftop?
Could it be a cat or a mouse?
Who’s this down the chimney?
A thief with a beard— And a big sack for robbin’ the house?
I’m barkin’, I’m growlin’, I’m bitin’ his butt.
He howls and jumps back in his sleigh.
I scare his strange horses, they leap in the air.
I’ve frightened the whole bunch away.
Now the house is all peaceful and quiet again.
The stockin’s are safe as can be.
Won’t the kiddies be glad when they wake up tomorrow
And see how I’ve guarded the tree.
