17 Adorable Christmas Dogs Guaranteed To Warm Your Heart


These photos are all “very good doggos” who totally get the Christmas spirit.  Enjoy!

But first, a pet’s Christmas poem.


Not an animal was stirring, not even for snacks

The stockings where chewed by the chimney with care

In hopes that Santapaws soon would be there.

The doggies were nestled all snug in their bed

While visions of rawhides danced in their heads

And the cat in the cat tree and I in a lap

Had just settled down for long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arise such a clatter

I sprang, barked, and jumped to see what was the matter.

Away to the window the cat flew with a flash

Hissed at the shutters and clawed up the sash.

The moonlight was bright on the new fallen snow.

Lighting up cat eyes that watched from below.

Then what to the wondering cat eyes should appear

But a miniature sleigh and eight dogs dressed like reindeer.

With a funny man driver, breaking speed laws.

I knew in a moment it must be Santapaws.

More rapid than beagles, his coursers they came.

And he whistled and barked, and he called them by name

Now Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer and Vixen

On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen!

To the top of the cat tree that sits in the hall…

Now dash away, dash away, snacks for you all!

As dry leaves that before wild squirrel chasers fly

When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.

So up to the dog house the coursers they flew.

With the sleigh full of cat toys and boney chews too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof

The prancing and pawing, and it made me go “woof”

As I threw back my head and barked like a hound,

Down the chimney Santapaws came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur from his head to his snoot.

And his clothes were all tarnished with dog spit and soot

A bundle of rawhides were over his back,

And he looked like a dog walker opening his pack.

His eyes, how they twinkled, his dimples how merry

his cheeks were like dog biscuits, his nose like a berry.

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,

And the cat played with his beard as white as the snow.

The stump of a biscuit he held tight in his teeth.

And the crumbs from it encircled his head like a wreath.

He had a broad face and a round little belly,

That shook when he laughed like a dog dish of jelly.

He was chubby and plump a right jolly old elf.

And I barked when I saw him, in spite of myself.

A wink of his eye, and a pat on my head

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but straitened his fur

Filled up the pet stockings, then turned with a purr.

And laying a paw pad aside of his nose,

And giving a nod up the chimney he rose

He sprang to his sleigh, to his dogs gave a whistle

And away they all flew like the fur of a thistle

But I heard him exclaim as the cat played with the lights…

Merry Petmas to all,

And to all a good night!
