Or, the feast of three kings, used to be celebrated on January 6. Twelve days after Christmas. Somehow, in their wisdom, the church fathers have decided that this year is is January 4. Muzzer tends to be a traditionalist in these things. But I have convinced her to compromise, not an easy task. We are writing the last carol for the year tonight. Warning...this may be a bit long!
We three wire fox terriers are
Travelling cross the country by car
Me and Bussie, my bro Mackie
Ozzie and Romeo.
First we pick up Barkie Boys
Jakey and Just Harry, oh joy!
Head for New Yawk, pick up Asta
Go skating in the pawk.
Pick up Petey - he's at home
Pick up Koobie, don't let her roam
Mitch and Maggie. Archie and Aggie
Lacey, Scruffy, Baby Stanley, everyone says hello
Backtrack just a little bit
Wally and the wild teens will fit
Willy and Terry, can't forget 'em
My that's a lot of snow
Boy this car is carrying a crowd.
Lenny's playing music too loud
All the whippets fill the backseat
Teka has faked a swoon
All twelve of the Bumpass hounds fit
Khyra needs a soft place to sit
Pick up Ivy, Rudy and Ralphy
Leave Benjamin at home.
Butchy and the lovely miss S.
She is wearing my favorite dress
Stanley and Stella, Asta's sweet fella
Heading for Texas now.
Scooter and Miss Sunny can go,
Pick up Scooter's Twinny and Joe
Pick up Bogart and Ruby and go
To the Beach to see the ocean
My we have driven far.
Ruby Aire has picked up the rest
Flying east and then to the west
Opy, Charlie, Snowball, Bae Bae
Faya, Dyos and then
Stopping over in London for Lunch
She picked up the British Bunch
Jackson, Eric, Molly, Taffy
Marvin from Scotland too
Quite a crowd of our doggie pals
Doggie guys and doggie gals
Celebrate a lovely new year
Best wishes to you all!
