'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except wild-eyed Boxers named Dallas and Sassy Girl;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
Not knowing the fawn and furry Boxer duo would soon be there;
Regena and Mickey were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of secret treasures danced in Dallas and Sassy Girl's head;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and Dad in his cap,
Had no idea that Dallas and Sassy Girl was getting ready to pull all of this crap,
When downstairs we heard such a clatter,
We sprang from the beds to see what was the matter.
Down the stairs we flew like a flash,
But the Dallas and Sassy Girl had already tore open the presents and were having a bash.
They lay their proud of themselves as they chewed the fake snow
I looked back down at the damage below,
When, what to my tired eyes should appear,
But the Dallas and Sassy Girl had decided to get up and eat our plastic reindeer,
With a hint of innocence, they were so lively and quick,
I thought it was a dream and gave myself a prick.
More rapid than a bear, their terror had already came,
And I shouted and called them a few choice names;
"Now, Dallas and Sassy Girl! I asked them to listen, but off they went!
Around the house I chased them until I was totally bent!
To the top of the stairs! Around the wall!
They dashed away! dashed away like theywere laughing at us all!
Their eyes full of joy-- how they twinkled! how merry!
Their cheeks puffed out from the mouth full of paper, me so mad I turned red like a cherry!
The drool from their mouths dropped down in a steady flow,
And their chins white with toy stuffing looked like snow;
The ornament they held tight in their teeth,
Was just a preview of the damage as they tore down the wreath;
Glancing up into the kitchen I seen the eaten Santa doll with the little round belly,
They even ate our Christmas grape jelly.
It was just so much to take in, a right jolly night itself,
And I laughed when I saw them, in spite of myself;
With a wink of their eyes and a twist of the head,
Soon let me to know I had a lot more to dread;
They barked not a sound, but went straight to work,
Ripped down all the stockings; with one jerk,
And laying their paws aside their noses,
And giving a nod, up the Tree they rose;
They tore down the tree, making a sound almost like a whistle,
And down it came, breaking our crystal.
But I heard them exclaim, ere they ran out of sight,
"WOO, WOO, WOO AND TO ALL A GOODNIGHT!"
