“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests”. Luke 2:13-14 NIV
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,
All the creatures were stirring, especially the mouse.
Burt and Lucy sniffed at their stockings hung high in the air.
I hoped that no treats would fall prey to the pair.
The mouse ripped through the house with dogs in pursuit
Fur flying, ears flopping, tails wagging; I’ll admit they are cute.
Away to the closet, under the door, behind the piano, and down through the floor.
The hound and the husky stood not a chance; a mouse being little and dogs two foot or more.
Quiet restored, the pups climbed on the couch, breathing soon set to a snore,
When what should disturb them but noise on the roof!
Santa had come while the hound and the husky dreamed of more proof.
What proof did they need but presents piled high ?
Packages that smelled perfect for dogs stacked up to the sky.
There were pull toys and squeakers, stuffed ones and bones;
Treats that they sat for and tricks to be done.
Oh what a morning; truly a delight,
For a husky and hound dog who’d been good all year long
Or Santa had looked at his long list quite wrong!
The naughty dog list had been chewed by the hound;
Buried by the husky deep down in the ground.
They happily chewed till their hearts were content,
Laid down for a nap, their Christmas wish sent:
Merry Christmas to all from the husky and hound and yes, even the mouse that they had found!
