Forty Years...oh my dog

Muzzer says this song was a hit almost 40 years ago! My doggy brain is not comprehending 40!


We dedicate this to Air Ruby. In hopes that she will be willing to fly the doggies to Azrizona for the Super Bowl. More on that after the holidays.

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum, [Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree]

du kannst mir sehr gefallen! [Of all the trees most lovely]

The news had come out in the First World War

The bloody Red Baron was flying once more

The Allied command ignored all of its men

And called on Ruby to do it again.


Twas the night before Christmas, and 40 below

When Ruby went up in search of her foe

She spied the Red Baron, fiercely they fought

With ice on her wings Ruby knew she was caught.


Christmas bells those Christmas bells

Ring out from the land

Asking peace of all the world

And good will to man


The Baron had Ruby dead in his sights

He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight

Why he didn't shoot, well, we'll never know

Or was it the bells from the village below.


Christmas bells those Christmas bells

Ringing through the land

Bringing peace to all the world

And good will to man


The Baron made Ruby fly to the Rhine

And forced her to land behind the enemy lines

Ruby was certain that this was the end

When the Baron cried out, "Merry Christmas, my friend"


The Baron then offered a holiday toast

And Ruby, our hero, saluted her host

And then with a roar they were both on their way

Each knowing they'd meet on some other day.


Christmas bells those Christmas bells

Ringing through the land

Bringing peace to all the world

And good will to man

Gussie -

We have done one last poem for the postapalooza - Twas the Night before Santa Paws.

We have featured you as a reindeer! I would write more but mom says her brain is tired and I am afraid her head might explode from all the posting!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good day!

Love Dory
