Exclamation *~*Forgotten Dog's Christmas*~~*

~~FORGOTTEN DOG'S CHRISTMAS~~
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there The children were nestled all snug in their beds With no thought of the dog filling their head And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap Knew he 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 was free of his chain and 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 Claus - with eyes full of tears He un-chained the dog, once so lively and quick Last year's Christmas present, now painfully thin and sick More rapid than eagles he called the dog's name And the dog ran 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 this dog a home where he'll be loved by all." I knew in an instant there would be no gifts this year For Santa Claus had made one thing quite clear The gift of a dog is not just for the season We had gotten the pup for all the wrong reasons In our haste to think of the kids 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 exclaim as he rode out of sight "You weren't given a gift! You were given a LIFE!" Author Unknown

That was awesome! That happens too often, sadly.

Oh i love this! It disgusts me how many Ads or Flyers ive seen this year for puppies that say "great christmas present" "ready in time for christmas" or "will hold till christmas" it breaks my heart to think of how many of those sweet little things will end up in the pound, chained to a tree, or just left somewhere to wonder in the cold. i think i'll repost this on Tradio (our local online ad board)

Very sad and unfortunately very true. I think I'll post it on a Sheltie board that I belong to if no minds.

That is such a good story. Our dogs are outside dogs but when it gets really cold we bring them in.
