Dashing Through the Snow

Over the fields I go,
I don’t really know the words,
So I’m making something up,
Laughing all the way, ho ho ho ho!

Let it snow, let it snow,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Tiny dogs with their eyes all aglow,
In a wonderland of snow.

Outside the snow is falling,
Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, let’s go,
Oh what fun it is something,
Something something about snow, Hey!

‘ZIGGY’ -Heather L.

Friday Haiku: Yule Dog

Tazz gets brightly lit
At Christmas time every year
(He does it for treats.)



“I figured I’d submit another couple of pictures of Tazz with the Christmas lights I wrap him in every year. He has the patience of a saint and doesn’t mind being wrapped up for a couple of minutes for me to snap some photos. Plus he gets lots of treats and some bacon for being such a good boy!” -Hannah W.
