Click to hear Norton read!

 ‘Tis the night before Christmas and now that I’m three
The ornaments don’t look as tasty to me.
The ones at the bottom are safe from my jaws
But, oops, my big Lab tail some damage might cause!

The gifts are all tagged for humans ...I see.
So, if I get bupkiss— on this tree, I’ll pee.
My Mom might not like it— her carpets so clean.
 So, I’ll blame it on Stanley! (Don’t care if it’s mean.)

Hey, Santa, I swear I’m man’s best-ever Bub...
Always upside-down for my belly-up rubs.
I’ll try not spend Christmas begging for treats...
Like cookies & chew toys and meat! Lots of meat!

May Santa’s love bring you the stuff you desire...
And, hopefully boozed up eggnog by a fire.
May reindeer drop presents that are tied with a bow
 (and not drop the “other” kind you see in the snow.)

May your Christmas be Merry! May your heart be light!
(And, may your drunk uncle not cause a fist fight!)
May you be surrounded by those you hold dear...
And, may this new Christmas Day bring you good cheer.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a Woof Night!

Marianne, Bob, Norton and Stanley
