A Puppy's 12 Days of Christmas
(shortened version)
by Elise Lewis 1997

On the eleventh day of Christmas my puppy gave to me
Eleven unwrapped presents
Ten Christmas cards I shoulda mailed
My wreath in nine pieces
Eight tiny reindeer fragments
Seven scraps of wrapping paper
Six yards of soggy ribbon
Five chewed-up stockings
Four broken window candles
Three punctured ornaments
Two leaking bubble lights
And the Santa topper from the Christmas tree.
On the twelfth day of Christmas my puppy gave to me
A dozen puppy kisses
And I forgot all about the other eleven days.

The Day Before Christmas

It's the day before Christmas 		I catch them and hold them. 
And all through the house 		"Be good", I insist. 
The puppies are squeaking 		They lick me, then run off 
An old rubber mouse. 			To see what they've missed. 

The wreath which had merrily 		And now as I watch them 
Hung on the door 			The thought comes to me, 
is scattered in pieces 			That theirs is the spirit 
All over the floor. 			That Christmas should be.
The stockings that hung 		Should children and puppies 
In a neat little row 			Yet show us the way, 
Now boast a hole in 			And teach us the joy 
Each one of the toes. 			That should come with this day? 

The tree was subjected 			Could they bring the message 
To bright-eyed whims, 			That's written above, 
And now, although splendid, 		And tell us that, most of all 
It's missing some limbs. 		Christmas is love. 

A Christmas Poem From The Dog

Eyeing hydrants, digging holes,
Drinking from the toilet bowls...
Playing games of "tug-o'-war",
Putting sratch marks on your door...

Rolling over, playing dead,
Getting dog hair on your bed...
Scaring folks who bring the mail,
Chasing cars, as well as my tail...

Barking, begging, heeling, howling,
And also, on occasion, growling,
Romping through a field of grass
Sneezing, snoozing, passing gas...

Sniffing everything I see,
Peeing on the Christmas tree...
Woofing, wagging, chomping, chewing,
These are things I sure love doing!

(But I'll try not to do that tree thing...)
