"The more I know about men, the more I like dogs." -- Gloria Allred
The little cutie below is Emma. She is not a DROH doggie but belongs to a lady who found out about my Aunt Judy making harnesses to raise money for DROH. She lives in California and has ordered quite a few a few harness/leash combos as well as making a yearly donation to help meet our matching fundraisers. This year Emma's Mom asked Aunt Judy to make Emma a Christmas harness, so Aunt Judy suprised her and made a matching cap as a Christmas gift to Emma. She was trilled and wrote this poem for DROH. So Mommy & I wanted to share it with all of you.
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, AND ALL THROUGH THE KITCHEN,
WAS LITTLE EMMA IN HER OUTFIT, WHO REALLY LOOKED WITCHIN.
OTHER DOXIES WERE ASLEEP IN A SOFT LITTLE BED,
WHILE EMMA WAS STROKING THE CAP ON HER HEAD.
IT HAD A HOLE IN EACH SIDE FOR THOSE LONG DOXIE EARS,
SO THE OOH'S AND THE AAH'S WOULD BE SO EASY TO HEAR
WHEN WHAT TO MY WONDERING EYES SHOULD APPEAR,
AN ENTIRE CHRISTMAS OUTFIT EXPOSING ONLY HER REAR.
NOW THIS LITTLE DOGGIE IS A REALLY A STAR,
WITH HER HAT, HER LEASH AND HER LITTLE SPORTS BRA.
NEVER LET IT BE SAID THAT THIS DOG DOES NOT CARE, THE FASHION STATEMENT SHE MAKES IN HER CUSTOM MADE GEAR.
SHE FEELS THAT HER OUTFIT IS NOT QUITE COMPLETE,
SO SHE'S OUT LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO PUT ON HER FEET.
I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, EMMA WOULD NOT HAVE A THING,
BUT FOR THE CLEVERNESS AND LOVE BY ONE JUDY SPRING.
BUT WHEN THIS SWEET STORY IS ALL SAID AND DONE,
IT WAS DACHSHUND RESCUE OF HOUSTON THAT SUPPLIED ALL THE FUN.
THESE CREATURES OF GOD ARE JUST HERE ON LOAN.
BUT IT'S DACHSHUND RESCUE OF HOUSTON THAT GIVES THEM A HOME.
IF EVERYONE WHO READS THIS COULD DONATE TO THEIR CAUSE,
THEY COULD BECOME FOR THOSE DOXIES A REAL SANTA CLAUSE.

Where my Mommy works, they are having a Secret Santa gift exchange in her department, where everyday during the week before Christmas, you buy something for the person you drew like candy, a drink, chips or whatever and on the last day you bring a big gift, not more than $25.00, and reveal yourself as your person's Secret Santa. You make a list of the four things you most would like to get.
This is Mommy's wish list:
#1 A donation to DROH in Samatha's memory
#2 A donation to DROH in Jody's memory
#3 A donation to DROH in Joanie's memory
#4 a donation to DROH to honor my baby Mona.
Do you think there is any doubt what Mommy wants?
