Shadow's "Night Before Christmas"

'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a silouette was moving,
Not even the mouse.

Shadow had been eyeing packages
Under the tree,
Crafty color-wrapped presents
In shades of red and green.

He could smell the bacon, chicken and beef
Flavored treats.
"Oh boy, I'm ready to snack on those goodies
Bundled beneath the overgrown tree."

With a lick of his lips,
Shadow thought he heard something,
Swiftly shutting his eyes,
In case it was Santa coming.

Shadow heard the sound of large
Harley Motorcycle boots shuffling across floor,
With one eye half open,
He crept around the door.

"Is it Santa?"
Shadow thought to himself,
Hoping mom's milk and cookies
Were still there on the shelf.

"Oh drat, no it's not,"
Shadow could tell this big jolly giant wasn't dressed all in red,
No white bearded whiskers,
Just my big denim Dad.

And after another set of gifts were fixed
Beneath the tree,
Dad scooped me up in his arms,
To share the last vanilla frosted cookie.

Happy Holidays (peace on Earth) and
Merry Christmas to All.
Good will to all of my peeps.

My best friend Kesey got the Secret Paws that I sent!

I'm waggin' my tail right now because I found out that my best friend Kesey got the Secret Paws package that I sent to him. There's a lot of great stuff inside. I followed the directions very carefully and made sure that I got all of his favorite things!

Kesey ... Have a furry great Christmas! Enjoy all of those Secret Paws goodies!
Your best friend,
Shadow Saluki

A Christmas Wish ... Please help, if you are able!

Loyal readers:
My cousin DaisyMae Maus (of DaisyMae Maus and the Feline Americans blog) posted this message in hopes of helping her good feline friend Libby Marie who is having a very rough time. Since it's the holidays, and in the spirit of "goodwill toward all," I'm reprinting the message here on my blog in hopes of reaching the woofie community and generating more help for Libby Marie.
Thank you for your attention ...
Shadow Saluki

Here's the message in its entirity:

Hey Efurrybody! Here's a great opportunity to spread a little Christmas cheer to a fellow member of the blogosphere!

Our good friend Libby Marie needs lots of help to pay her mounting V-E-T bills since she's been diagnosed with leukemia. Her mama and papa are offering to light candles in memory and/or in honor of cats and dogs (alive or at the Rainbow Bridge).

Mom let me send a check to help Miss Libby and you can, too. Just visit Libby Marie's blog to find out the address and the details. Miss Libby's parents will light a candle for every dollar that you send. We have lots of Feline Americans (and others, including our Uncle Rich) who have passed on, so we sent every cent left in Charmee's piggy bank.

Thanks for caring and best wishes to you!
DaisyMae Maus and the Feline Americans
