The Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house
the people were hustling and bustling about.
Owner Girl did her hair and makeup with care,
in the hopes that Owner Boy soon would be there.
I was quietly nestled all snug in my bed,
while visions of rawhides danced in my head.
When out in the driveway there rose such a clatter!
I sprung from my bed to see what was the matter!
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
I jumped on the presents and made a big crash!
I looked out the window and saw through the snow,
they started the car and they're leaving, "Oh No!"
I barked and I barked but they couldn't hear,
they left with their presents, some food and holiday cheer.
I tried to stop them but they left so very quick,
I didn't even get a hug or one little lick!
Where could they be going? I thought to myself,
Were they visiting Santa, or maybe an elf?
They left just us dogs, Chip, Gunner and I,
We slept on the couch, we waited and sighed.
We gaurded the house and all of the gifts,
the wind was a howling, making snow drifts.
The wind got so strong that it opened the door!
We ran to the kitchen, the wind it did roar!
It blew napkins and papers and more all about!
But the people weren't home, we shouldn't go out!
Chip and then Gunner ran outside to play,
I was scared at first and wanted to stay.
"Come back in guys", I barked at the two,
"you don't even have your leashes on you!"
The people aren't home, this just isn't right!
I sure hope they won't be gone through the night!
In search of The Owners I ventured outside,
there were plenty of places out there to hide!
I looked all around without any luck,
I wondered if the car got broken or stuck!
I couldn't believe we were outside alone.
I hoped that Gunner knew the way home.
We sniffed at the snow and looked at the stars,
and then in the driveway, in pulled a car!
"We're finally saved" I happily thought,
I ran to the person, so very distraught!
It was Amanda and niece Emmaleigh,
I barked and I told them what'd happened to me!
They got us inside and picked up the mess,
I settled down on the couch for some much needed rest.
A little while later The Owners pulled in,
they were worried and happy to see me again!
"Oh yay!" I barked "I'm so glad that you're home!"
"And oh, by the way did you bring me a bone?"
I was so excited, I did dance, I did leap!
A few hours later we all went to sleep.
Thankfully knowing everything was alright,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
