Last Christmas I wrote a little poem for Brenda, but every one thought it was not very nice for her. So I have wrote a kinder one this year.

Another One
If I had a Christmas wish to pick a mum for me,
I could say for sure Brenda it would be.
If I had roamed the earth no where would I find,
A mum as nice as Brenda because she is so kind.
I was such an awful dog grumpy in every way,
In fact when I look back I am amazed she let me stay.
I would lie on my bed and show my big teeth,
At anyone passing within at least ten feet.
But gentleness and kind words were all she had to say,
And slowly I did calm down and that's why I'm here today.
Then as the weeks went by I realised what's true.
If furbodys are kind to humans then they are kind to you.
Now I have so many friends I see in the park each day,
They even bring me special treats in case they pass my way.
I owe this all to Brenda for showing me how to care,
So when I was in desperate need I am glad that she was there.
And so I said to Brenda at Christmas she can have a rest,
Even though we all know Brenda would cook the dinner best.
John can cook the dinner and wash the dishes too,
Because by now at his age he should know what to do.
Now we are all worried about what will happen next,
John will be in the kitchen annoyed and very vexed.
Sprouts will be dropping and bouncing on the floor,
Potatoes falling and rolling towards the back door.
He will be burning all the sausage and the turkey too,
Ah Brenda we are sorry can we leave it all to you.
Last years poem.
Ode to Brenda's nose
Brenda has the reddest nose that I have ever seen,
I have not seen another like it no matter where I have been.
When it’s dark and we go up stairs very late at night,
We follow the glow from Brenda’s nose we don’t need a light.

The Mop Tilly and I are worried whatever would we do,
If Rudolph got sick and SANTA PAWS came for you.
For if he saw your glowing red nose I am sure he just might,
Say Brenda come and guide my sleigh on this important night.

John said he knows exactly what Santa would do,
He would send Rudolf off to bed and definitely come for you.
But then we had a giggle thinking of the sight,
You in front of the reindeer's running through the night.

John said he is not worried about dinner on Christmas day,
Brenda can peel the veggies as she runs the Milky Way.
So that when she gets back there won’t be much to do,
Just cook the turkey and the veg and lay the table too.

Then when the meal is over we will relax and have a drink,
While Brenda does the dishes at the kitchen sink.
By now she might be tired and need a little rest’
Before she gets the tea ready cos Brenda does it best.

Our toys will be all over scattered around the floor,
There will be bits of treat that Pip hid under a door.
So John and us dogs will be tired we will have had a busy day,
So we will all go to bed while Brenda clears away.

Merry Christmas Bobby, Brenda and John!

Your rhymes made us laugh out loud tonight, they are very good!!

My Dad always cooks the Christmas Dinner, for 32 years now, my J has never actually ventured into the kitchen on Christmas Day, well apart from pouring herself a G and T.....but that is another story.

From one Poet Dog to another, thank you for making us laugh, and I am so glad you found your Forever Home, like me.

From one Rescue Dog to another,

Merry Christmas Pal!

And all good wishes for the new year.

Your friend Marvin xxxxxxxx

Yes well what can we say! That was a better poem than last year until you get to the end!
Now Brenda, remember Girl Power!
They are trying to trick you into doing the dinner yet again and lets face it John can do it!
We suggest that you put your feet up and relax.
You are all very lucky to have Brenda there to look after you all year round - xmas day we reckon, between you, you can manage.
Our mum is suggesting a vist to M & S - they make xmas dinner idiot proof!!!!!
Have the bestest xmas.
love
Martha & Bailey xxxx

Hi, Bobby!
Yes! You did it much better this year!
Sure Brenda loves you a lot! And that makes you a happier doggie!
My mom is going to cook our Christmas Eve dinner! It is the only day of the year she does that!
Kisses and hugs

Oh Bobby, that's so beautiful! We're sure Brenda will be having leaky eyes after reading this.

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Bobby! We didn't know you last year. So we hadn't read your first poem to Brenda. And we're sure glad we read this year's first, or we'd've been scolding you. But now we know you are full of silliness and you know just how much Brenda and John love you. So we were able to laugh and not scold. (But we know WE might've gotten in trouble if we'd penned those words.) You are one goofy grumpy boy.
Love
