Christmas Time at Plumus
(with many thanks to Chris Brown)
Cosy Fires glowing in hearths across the land
Scrumptious cooking smells -waft our paths as Women work with caring hands
Excitement and Fun for Everyone - Drinks poured from cabinets - including Rum
There's hustle and bustle as papers begin to rustle
Gentle music about the house, with Families feeling harmonious
In Windows Fairy Lights to cheer dark Winters nights
With Four BERNESE around the floor, of course, they do block the door
Lazy and Content, with NO wrong intent
They are Cosy and Warm - nothing other than their norm'
Sweets and Fruit, Crisps and Nuts, set in dishes, as we offer our Best Wishes
Cakes and Biscuits - Dates and Figs and all those other thingummyjigs
Party Clothes and Panto Shows
Fragrant Perfumes - Comfy toes and Pink faces all aglow
Decorations adorning - Twinkling for morning
Presents in boxes - packets and bags - Loving messages written on the tags
Mince Pies cooking - BERN'S Looking
Puddings and Cream - In Homes all shiny and clean
With Baubles and BERNESE 'neath Christmas Trees
Crackers and Hats - Dog Hair on Mats
Treasures and Pleasures - and more - Holly and Mistletoe in bunches galore
While BERNESE still lie around the floor - A Cuddle - A Kiss - They ask NO more
So as Christmas draws nearer and Santa is expected
LET'S NOT NEGLECT THOSE LOVED AND COLLECTED.

Christmas Puppy Poem
'Twas the Night Before Christmas, in the Mills of Missouri.
'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the mills,
not a puppy was stirring, it was strangely quite still.
While back at the pole, Santa readied the sleigh,
to pick up these mill dogs, it was such a long way!
The reindeer were dressing all quick in a hurry
They were headed for RESCUE, and straight for MISSOURI!
On Dasher on Dancer on Comet and Cupid.
Those pups go to Pet Shops! We know! We're not stupid!
As his sleigh did approach, the mill gates opened wide,
Santa called to them all, and they all jumped inside!
On Poodles, on Bichons, on Golden Retrievers!
Grab up the babies, we save those for grievers!
On Westies, on Lhasas, on cute Weenie Boogers,
On Shih Tzus and Scotties, they're all sweet as sugar!
On Schnauzers, and Maltese, on Wire Haired Fox Terriers!
We've got room for ALL, the more now, the merrier!
And the sleigh just grew bigger as they all made more room,
These pups lives were changing! No more gloom and doom!
While out on the lawns there arose such a clatter
The millers ran out to see what was the matter!
When they found their "stock" gone, how the millers did sob,
while a Voice from above boomed, "GO GET A REAL JOB!"
As it seemed it could not get much better than this,
I started to wake, did I dream all of this???
There was no red sleigh, no reindeer with wings.
I guess it was sadly, just one of those things,
That you dream and you dream, till one day 'twill be.
That glorious day, when the mills are history!
And I think as we tell them, and tell them again,
Soon it will be that we all know that when,
One buys from a pet shop, there are pups you don't see.
The Mama and Daddy, who are longing to be,
loved by a family, and scratched on their heads.
Not sleeping on wire, that are now called their beds.
One day it will be, oh how great that will feel!
We won't mill our puppies like paper and steel!
And I heard it exclaimed as I woke up that night,
We won't stand for this, we'll stand up and fight!
With each breath we do have and each word we do say,
we'll tell about the mills, till that glorious day,
when the mills are all outlawed, and all over Missouri,
The occupation of milling, will be but a memory.

Bernese Mountain Dog Christmas Ditty
(with thanks to Coral and David Dennis)
(thanks to Barbara Cribb)
Dog tags ring, are you listenin'?
In the lane, snow is glistenin'.
It's yellow, NOT white -
I've been there tonight,
Marking up my winter wonderland.
Smell that tree? That's my fragrance.
It's a sign for wand'ring vagrants;
"Avoid where I pee,
It's MY pro-per-ty!
Marked up as my winter wonderland."
In the meadow dad will build a snowman,
Following the classical design.
Then I'll lift my leg and let it go Man,
So all the world will know that it is mine!
Straight from me to the fencepost,
Flows my na-tu-ral incense;
"Stay off of my TURF,
This small piece of earth,
I mark it as my winter wonderland."
thanks to Craig for these super Chrissy jokes)
