Mischief Monday - But Do You Recall

The most reluctant reindeer of all . . .

Phody and Hailey Merritt
had a very taxing life
and if you ever asked them
they would say it was full of strife.

All of the other puppies
use to laugh and say no way
they would never let their people
treat them in such embarrassing ways!

But the price for living here is not hard to pay,
wear you hat and stay real still 
and soon the camera goes away.

Then how their bellies loved them
as they were stuffed with treats
the hat tax is preferable
to life on the streets. 



  1. hahahah we love that paw-em... and we like the fab tax head wear

  2. I LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Love it!!!! and especially The Look from Phod... thanks for the laughter

  3. Hari OM if you say so...!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Always good to recognise your blessings!

  5. You may not realize it yet, but it looks like Phod is about to impose a pillow tax.

  6. I just don't know what to say, Phod and Lee, except I am sorry about the Hat Tax. Rebellion? Throw all their Christmas presents into the water?

  7. Your poem is priceless and so is your sideways look, Phod, and you look beyond exasperated, Hailey!

  8. K10 I hope somehow you have claimed exclusive rights to the Pups Poems of Christmas as A Merritt.
    Phod you have a most expressive face...Lee darlin the way your head is position that is one heavy Hat Tax
    Hugs Cecilia

  9. This was GREAT!!! And now, Phod and Lee, let those images of sugar plums dance through your furry heads and dream about the day those hats go away:)

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  11. Hat tax. But your hats are lovely.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  12. We love your version of that song and are glad to hear you were rewarded well for your troubles.

  13. Such funny pups! Have a Happy Christmas!
