December 15th: Rudolph's Understudy

(viewed 1908 times)
Bookmark and Share
Rudolph, the red-nosed greyhound
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other greyhounds
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any greyhound games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the greyhounds loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed greyhound,
you'll go down in history!

With apologies to Johnny Marks

As you can see, Tim was THRILLED to be a reindeer (not)

Anyway, from me and TheOtherHalf: Merry Christmas!
And from Tim: Woof!
(translated as: Can I go back to sleep on the sofa now?)

Translation: "Don't mind the jacket pop, it's really quite lovely, but could we take off the nose and head thing immediately? Thanks."


Tim is a star. Give him a kiss for me.

Y'know, you really could print this up as a good quality card & sell it for greyhound rescue next xmas. Am sure that Timdolph would find a wide & appreciative market. :)

George, thanks.

queserasera, he has a very expressive face, doesn't he? :)

Taniwha, :)

mysocalledmoblog, he is very patient. I should add, though, before I get had up by the RSPCA, that the red nose was added in Photoshop. Sorry to dash any illusions!
