The Christmas Hound

My dog likes the decorations from the Christmas tree, He can eat them without any guilt because they are fat free. He knows which stocking belongs to him and he checks it every day, He checks it by chewing it up, it’s a game he likes to play. Sometimes in the candy dish I will find a suspect slobber mark, I know that he’s been sampling both the milk chocolates and the dark. He ate a whole roll of wrapping paper the kind with shinny foil, Then for dessert he had a bow and some curly ribbon from the coil. He helps us to remember the good times when Christmas time has gone, When the snow melts in the spring and we find spangles on the lawn.

    Fun poem, Tony. There was a movie a few years ago about the mutt that ate so many of their papers and things IT's a very old one. I wish I could remember its title bcause your poem made me think of that dog who ate so many things of its owners.

    Enjoyed reading your humorous work..Yes, those puppies and sometimes adult dogs can wreck havoc on items in the house..My Princess just chewed up the zipper in my really nice housecoat...Very upsetting..Thanks for stopping by..My work about "Orange-Red Dreadlocks" was about a very colorful sunrise..Sara

    Beautiful write Tony, I know how you feel, the first year I had Genie she was a puppy, she ate all the snow off our decorated plastic trees. Now she is an old lady, she just wags her tail and waits for her present on Christmas eve. Love to you, always, Vie.
