T’was The Night Before River Dogs Christmas

Hello everyone, and Merry River Dogs Christmas to you all! We hope that you are nearly ready for the big day, all of your presents wrapped and sent off to Santa and your Christmas Dog Treats ready to chow down on after the main course. There’s still time to grab some of these gifts from our doggy Christmas present guide if you’re running late; we don’t want any unhappy furry friends when Santa Paws does his rounds now, do we!

Before we kick off into the exciting part of the blog, we just want to remind you all about our opening times over the Christmas period. The last thing we want is for you to be waiting outside in the cold while your pens turn to inkcicles in your pockets! Ebenezer Shorts closed up shop on Friday and told us to be back in all the earlier the next morning, but we ignored him as usual and will be reopening our doggy day care centre on January 2nd. That should give you all plenty of quality time with your four-legged friends while you play with your gifts and catch up. 

This will be our last blog until the new year, so we thought we would go out with a bang and relive another classic River Dogs Christmas tale. If we keep going like this, then your little poochy pals might end up in an actual Christmas book! Wouldn’t that be something! So now, let us skip forward in time to Christmas Eve as we wait for a very important person to land with all four paws in the River Dogs yard!

T’was The Night Before River Dogs Christmas…

T’was the night before River Dogs Christmas, and all through our doggy house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. (Ok, strictly speaking, that’s because there aren’t any mice in our unit; we keep a strict cleaning regime you know and pride ourselves on our playroom). Where was I…oh yeah, no mouse in the house…got it.

Helen and Mark’s socks were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that fluffy old Santa paws soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of homemade dog treats danced in their heads.

With Frankel in a rosy red neckerchief and willow in her Santa’s cap, we all settled our brains for a long River Dogs Christmas nap. When out in the yard there arose a bloomin’ big clatter, and we all sprang from our beds to see what was the matter. Away to the window, Willow flew like a flash. She tore open the shutters and (after a few attempts because she’s a little doggy) threw up the sash.

We saw a little old driver, and down fell our jaws, as we knew in a moment it must be Santa Paws! 

And then, in a twinkling, we heard on the roof, the prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As we drew in our heads and turned quickly around, down the chimney Santa Paws came with a bound.

His fur was so shiny, from his nose to his paws. His clothes were all tarnished with ashes, and he had soot in-between his claws! A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back, and he looked like a postman, just opening his pack. 

He barked not a word, but went straight to his work, filled all of the stockings, and then turned with a jerk.
And laying his claw aside of his nose, he gave a quick nod, up the chimney he rose!

He bounded onto his sleigh and gave his team a whistle, and away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, “Merry River Dogs Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”

That’s all from us folks! We hope that you enjoyed our little River Dogs Christmas tale and that it’s got you even more in the festive spirit! From all of us here at River Dogs HQ, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and we’ll see you all in January!
