A Whippety Christmas 

Christmas is coming And my stocking is getting fat! Everyone is getting ready for Christmas, including my friends. 

A very good friend of mine, a handsome chap called Winston, has rewritten this lovely festive poem, with his very own whippety paws. I hope you like it as much as I did.

Twas the night before Christmas when all thru the house
Not a Whippet was stirring not even the puppies

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

In hopes that mommy would fill them with cookies
The whippets were nestled all snug in their kennels

While visions of sausages danced in their bony heads.

and mama in her pjs and imaginary dad in his slippers

had just settled their heads for the long winter nap.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter

Winston sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window he flew like a flash

He threw up the shutters an threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow

gave a luster of midday to the objects below.

when what to his keen little sighthound eyes should appear

a miniature sleigh and 8 tiny … SQUIRREL??? HUH???
And then in a twinkling he heard on the roof

The prancing and pawing of each little paw.

On Eli on Surfer on Winston on Sprite

lets get in our fleeces and see whats in the light
The squirrels were all eating their well gathered nuts

But low and behold there wern’t any for us

We looked and we looked with our keen houndie eyes

But alas there was nothing for our whippetty cries
Suddenly the squirrels they stood up and they pranced

They looked like they were preparing an exit at a glance

The houndies all wondered what was going to be next

So they ran down stairs to see what had happened.
They looked all around with their keen beedy eyes

and surely enough they found to their surprise

Through out all the house & under the tree

There were sausages and cookies and they were all just for meeeee …
… Said Winston
Well NOOOO oh nooooo that’s not true they weren’t just for me

So Eli and Surfer & Sprite had to agree

we were having the best houndie christmas we could see

We couldn’t believe how happy were we
we heard the squirrels calling as they flew out of sight

happy christmas to all houndies and to all houndies a good night
“Good night Winston, and Merry Christmas  x”
