Twas' the night before Christmas Chained in the Yard 

----------------------------------------------------------
-- 

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a  creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the  chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The  children were nestled all snug in their beds,
With no thought of the dog  filling their head.
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Knew he  was cold, but didn't care about that.
When out on the lawn there arose such  a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the  window I flew like a flash,
Figuring the dog was free and into the trash. 
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of midday  to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But  Santa Claus - his eyes full of tears.
He unchained the dog, once so lively  and quick,
Last years Christmas present, now thin and sick.
More rapid  than eagles he called the dog's name.
And the dog ran to him, despite all  his pain;
"Now, DASHER! Now, DANCER! Now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET!  On CUPID! On, DONNER and BLITZEN!
To the top of the porch! To the top of the  wall!
Let's find this dog a home where he'll be loved by
all"
I knew  in an instant there would be no gifts this
year,
For Santa Claus had  made one thing quite clear,
The gift of a dog is not just for the season, 
We had gotten the pup for all the wrong reasons.
In our haste to think  of giving the kids a gift
There was one important thing that we missed. 
A dog should be family, and cared for the same
You don't give a gift,  then put it on a chain.
And I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight, 
"You weren't given a gift! You were given a life!"
