Merry Christmas!

Chet's nuts roasting near an open fire

Chet's tongue lapping at your nose

Tiny turds all lined up in the snow
And dogs dressed up like Eskimos...

Everybody knows a Boston with his googly eyes

Can help to make the season bright

Little dogs with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that toys and gifts await
To be ripped to teeny bits beneath the tree
And every Boston knows that Hollofill

Can cover rooms just like a Christmas snow.

And so I'm sending you this simple song

For readers near and readers far

Though it's been said many times many ways

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas


Thanks to Bill of the Birds for Lines 1 and 3.


An IMMEDIATE CLASSIC!! (that sounds hauntingly familiar...)
p.s.: A Happy Festivus to everyone! ;-)

What a hoot! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Somewhere, Nat King Cole is smiling. Great blog; take tomorrow off.

LOL...very cute
Merry Christmas to You and yours!

Fun and clever!
Thanks for the song-

Merry Christmas to you Julie and to your family and to all those love.

Fantastic!!! That definitely will be an immediate classic. Just repost it every December 24. You definitely outdid yourself. The ensemble effort for Lines 1 and 3 are brilliant. You have just made my day!!!

An instant holiday classic. Thanks, Julie and Bill.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

But Chet has no nuts!!!
This is wonderful.
And you guys are certifiable. Merry Christmas.

Heh!! I'll never hear that song the same way again. :-D

Merry Christmas to Chet and his adoring family, from one terrier household to another.

Now I'll always remember Chet's nuts when I hear "Chestnuts". Brilliant!

Merry Christmas to all!

Mary, also anticipating a hollofilled Christmas :o)

You all make a great team. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Happy holidays to ALL.  This made me laugh so hard I almost ...well, you know.  I agree with Mary--chestnuts will never be the same.So Bill came up with the lines about nuts and turds. Interesting.Just saying.Verification word--petske--to go with the blogske.Again--Happy holidays andPEACE ON EARTH--PLEASE.Sandy Brown

Oh, Sandy, you didn't think I would be so earthy, did you? Science Chimp is pure as the driven hollofil.

We just had the MOST wonderful Christmas eve. Liam believes, oh does he believe, and we are clinging to the magic for him, for all we're worth.

Chet believes too.

Phoebe enjoys playing along almost as much as believing. Sigh. We're limp with bliss.

Merry Christmas,,, in a half an hour! Hey, did Chet Baker knock Charles off your shoulder to get up there? That is the best picture! What a nut! Chet's nuts :)

What a hoot! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family too Julie.

HA!! I love it. Chet looks so happy for Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

That first line will be indelibly left in my mind..(thank BOTB)
Wishing you and yours a very joyous time together!

Absolutely hysterical! That certainly brings the holiday season into clear focus--with uproarious laughter. Thanks for sharing the fun.

That was a riot! Thanks for making me smile. And thanks for the blog - it's a wonderful gift every day of the year. Merry Christmas to you and your family.


LOL, that was fun!

¡¡¡Feliz Navidad!!!
Merry Christmas!!!
Hugs from Peru,

Merry Christmas to you as well! Your blog is a gift that I enjoy year round.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
This is a treasure.

Merry Christmas to all of you.

(is it hard to work with a BT draped over your shoulder?)

OMG Can't say I have ever enjoyed your blog more, am only sorry I read it the day after Christmas instead of on Christmas because it was a gift! Thank you for the belly laugh! I sang it to Chet's mother this morning and she is now certain I have lost my mind.

Adorable photos - especially the last one of the chubby puppy Chet in the sweater!

Luv it, luv it, LUV IT! Thanks for the great photos and song - I'm sure scenes like that were played out all around the country this week - I just love the holidays!

Merry Christmas to y'all.

I absolutely love Chet using you as a perch.

Merry Christmas!!

Your friends at Birdfreak and Dakota!

I've enjoyed your books, now I look forward to enjoying your blog. Thank you, and Happy New Year!
