Jackson the Pug and family on Holiday

Twas the night before New Years 
and all slept like a log
all the creatures were sleeping
except for Jackson Pug dog,

his puppies were nestled 
all snug on the floor,
when he heard a noise 
a rap on the door

He was up on his paws 
down the stairs he did run
he opened the door
oh my goodness, what fun

A hug and a kiss 
and a shake of the paw
His Mother and Father
and Mother in-law

we thought we'd surprise you
his Father did say
with presents for puppies
we picked up on the way

they all sat around a 
warm crackling fire place
when Janis appeared 
with a smile on her face

You could hear them all
laugh with a cock of an ear

Merry Christmas to you all
and a Happy New year

    I am so glad to see Jockson the Pug and his Kin are back for Christmas time. I missed the little dude. Good one Taz.

    So cute, Richard! Christmas from a pup's perspective. I've also been enjoying the series you cowrote with Rob Dufresne. You two work so well together! Best wishes for the holidays, Carolyn
