The One Where They're Going to Party!

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all thru the room,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a vacuum;
The stockings were hung by the fish tank with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
Ginger and Cali were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Greenies danced in their heads;
And Phoenix and I snuggled tight by the tree,
Had just settled down to catch a few z's.


When out on the deck there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the couch to see what was the matter.
Away to the door I flew like a flash,
Pushed open the blinds and gulped down a gasp.


When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew it must be St. Nick.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,

"Happy Christmas to all and
to all dogs a good life!"
