'Twas a husky night before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
not a pet was found stirring, not even a mouse.

The stockings were hung by the tree with great care,
in hopes that Santa Paws soon would be there.

The sibes were all snuggled in bed with their peeps,

while visions of snowflakes made their paws leap.

Mama in her jammies, and dad sleeping sound,
the snowflakes fell softly, hitting the ground.

Suddenly the SnowDogs heard a big clatter,
Their ears perked as they sprang to see what was the matter.

Away to the window they pounced in a flash,
nosed at the curtains and turned in a dash.

The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
gave a gleam and a brightness to objects below.

When what to their curious eyes did they see?
But a shiny red sleigh that filled them with glee.

With a driver in red, so happy and quick,
the sibes knew in a moment, it must be St. Nick.

More rapid then a dog sled team, the reindeer did fly,
Santa whistled and shouted, and said "don't be shy!"

Now Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer and Vixon,
on Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen,
to the top of the house, and up over the wall,
dash away, dash away, dash away all!

As leaves that before the wild snowstorm did fly,
when they meet with Jack Frost, nipping at the sky.

Up on the sibes house the reindeer flew,
with a sleigh full of dog treats, and Santa Paws too.

And then in an instant, they heard on the roof,
the pouncing and pawing of each little hoof.

As the huskies turned and began sniffing the ground,
down the chimney Santa Paws came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.

A bundle of dog toys he had on his back,
as he pulled out 3 dog treats to give to the pack.

His eyes, how they twinkled when he saw the sibes smile,
his cheeks glow bright red, as he just flew for miles.

He grinned as he gave each of the huskies a bow,
then they told him his beard was as white as the snow.

With a wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
the huskies knew there was nothing to dread.

Santa spoke no more words but went straight to his work,
then filled the dogs stockings and turned with a jerk.

Laying his finger aside of his nose,
nodding at the huskies, up the chimney he rose.

He sprang to his sled, told his team "just a minute"
hugged each of the huskies and gave them a biscuit.

But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight :
