The Twelve Shelter Dogs of Christmas

December 10, 2009

We have modified a great Christmas song to our own shelter dog version.  The Twelve Days of Christmas is now The Twelve Shelter Dogs of Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas,
The shelter adopted out a puppy:
A great dog with a mixed pedigree.

On the second day of Christmas
The shelter adopted out a puppy:
Two Beagle loves,
And a great dog with mixed pedigree.

And so on with the final verse as follows:

On the twelfth day of Christmas
The shelter adopted out a puppy:
Twelve Setters sitting,
Eleven pointers pointing,
Ten Chows a-wagging,
Nine poodles prancing,
Eight hounds a-baying,
Seven Labs a-swimming,
Six Pugs a-playing,
Five Golden Retrievers,
Four bird dogs,
Three French Poodles,
Two Beagle loves,
And a great dog with mixed pedigree.

Seriously, though… adopting a dog is the best way to go, but be sure you are ready for a new pet. Don’t adopt a dog just because it is Christmas. Adopt a dog because you are ready and you plan on making this dog a permanent member of your family.
