12 days of Dogness

Poem

On the first day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
Last years Christmas stocking
In the bottom was a pea

On the second day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
A chewed up Christmas decoration
For our brand new tree

On the third day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
A dug up bone from last year
And dumped it by my knee

On the fourth day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
An old Santa hat
Found under the old settee

On the fifth day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
A bit of Christmas cake
To go with my cup of tea

On the sixth day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
A striped candy cane
Stolen from the tree

On the seventh day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
A string of Christmas lights
He thought needed to be freed

On the eighth day of Christmas
My doggy bought to me
A potato from the vegie patch
One less for Christmas tea

On the ninth day of Christmas
My doggy bought to me
A freshly baked mince pie
And eyes that pleaded “feed me”

On the tenth day of Christmas
My doggy bought to me
An old nativity book
Pages ripped out for me to see

On the eleventh day of Christmas
My doggy bought to me
Santa’s special cookies
Left out for Santa’s feed

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My doggie bought to me
A heart of Christmas cheer
Which was really all I need
