A rescue Christmas Tale
« on: December 11, 2005, 10:25:26 am »
This was posted on the Newf List...thought it was cute and wanted to share.  I'm not too sure who the author is/was....but great job!



Twas the night before Xmas when all thru the house, Not a creature was
stirring not even a mouse.

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


The children all nestled all snug in their beds, With No thought of the dog
filling their heads.

And mamma in her kerchief and I in my cap, Knew the dog was cold, but didn't
care about that.


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

Away to the window I flew like a flash, Figuring the dog broke his chain and
got 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 my wondering eyes should appear- But Santa Clause with eyes
full of tears

 

He unchained the dog once so lively and quick, Last years Xmas present now
painfully sick

More rapid than eagles he called the dog's name and the dog ran right 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 him a home where
he'll be loved by all.

I knew in an instant there'd be no gifts this year, For Santa had made one
thing very clear

 

The gift of a dog is not just for the season-

We had gotten the dog for all the wrong reasons

 

In our haste to think of the kids-what a gift! There was one important thing
that we missed.

 

A dog should be family, and cared for the same

 

You don't give a Gift, then put it on a chain.

 

And I heard him explain as he rode out of site YOU WEREN'T GIVEN A GIFT, YOU
WERE GIVEN A LIFE!
