Santa Canine Paws

 

We’re Santa’s doggy helpers, we always wag our tails,

we get the canine wish lists that the dog owner mails.

 

We’ll go out and fill up those lists, wrapping as we go

but there are others not forgotten, we want you now to know.

 

We’ll find some really special gifts, scatter them around,

then pack them and deliver them straight to the dog pound.

 

We’ll not forget the rescue centers, or the waifs and strays;

we’ll bring a little bit of hope to brighten up their days.

 

Not one dog will be forgotten by these Santa Canine paws;

there’ll be yaps of pure delight, right across these shores.

A very poignant message Hully, sadly some dogs and cats will be discarded after christmas. It would be nice if they all received a little gift in appreciation of what devotion they show us. : )

Great poem, Hulla. If only there wasn't any dogs or cats abandoned at Xmas.

Excellent poem Hully, an ode to all those poor waifs and strays. Soon they will be joined by abandoned puppies given as gifts but who prove to be far more labour intensive than expected.

I know, it's so sad. I'd take them all in, if only I could.....cats and dogs! Thanks for reading.
