10 Things to Remind Your Dog About Christmas...

My schnauzies and I thought we would share our list of things we discussed that they need to remember during our most wonderful time of the year:

1. Don't pee on the tree or presents. (Unfortunately, this one has already been disregarded, sigh...)

2. The presents that smell interesting are not for your playing and chewing pleasure.

3. The cords running from the tree to the wall are not new chew toys, and neither are the glowing "balls" on the tree.

4. Please be pleasant when we have company, even if they sit on your favorite spot on the couch.

5. Speaking of strangers, they may not appreciate your kisses as much as mommy, so keep that sweet licker to yourself.

6. Try to be tolerant of the children. (Daisy - this means you.) I don't want to have to explain any scratch or bite marks to their mommies or daddies.

7. Please DO NOT drink out of cups or eat out of the plates left within your reach. Tummy aches are not fun for you or mommy.

8. Feel free to show our visitors as much charm as you can muster. This does not include bringing them dirty underwear or socks from the laundry.

9. The UPS and mail person are not staking out our house for a robbery. Mommy ordered all our gifts online this year and they have to deliver them. So chill PLEASE!!!

10. Lastly, but most important - DO NOT...I REPEAT...DO NOT bite the big jolly guy who will be coming out of our fireplace in the middle of the night. 

A Puppy's Christmas

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 a neat little row
Now boast a hole in
Each one of the toes.

The tree was subjected
To bright-eyed whims,
And now, although splendid,
It's 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 the joy
That should come with this day?

Could they bring the message
That's written above,
And tell us that, most of all
Christmas is love.


Merry Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by our blog...See you next year!
