Twas the night before Christmas

As I said, Sarah would soooooooooooooo be able to write my Christmas post to “Twas the Night before Christmas“. Enjoy:


Twas the morning of Christmas, and left on her porch, a bag of potatoes from Donna next door!

The bears won’t be hungry this Christmas day; not that they’ll eat them again until May.

The day started rough with glasses amiss, pillows were tossed, the room searched forthwith!

Resigning their fate to the bedroom elves, spare glasses were acquired and some coffee was quelled.

The morning began a mile away in the dark and quiet of the museum’s early day.

Logbooks were stacked to be ordered and checked as the morning went on, there’s no going back to bed!

Treatments were finished, notes were read. “Don’t let the pigs find the pumpkins!” Jill’s note to Donald said.

In Explore the Wild, a present was left. “A gift from the wolves” the unwanted tag read. A gasket was shredded, the pumps’ plug was chewed off. “We’re saving you energy! A gift you didn’t think of!”

As the morning wound down, all the animals were checked. Nothing went horribly wrong this year, how ’bout that?

So thankful we are for this day of the year, when our boss comes in so we can stay here.

“Here” might be close or miles away, but it matters greatly to us to be home Christmas Day.

This year went well, and with a new one in sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

    Hi there,
    My name is Tiffany Pham and I’m the community manager for Dropcam ( I wanted to reach out to you in hopes that you will participate in a fun blog challenge. Many of our customers have caught their pets doing some crazy things on their Dropcams, which gave us this idea. We’re asking great bloggers with pets to share some of their funniest quirks and best stories with us. Did your dog steal your food while you weren’t looking? Did your cat ever sing to you? Tell us about it!
    We’d love to get your participation and hear all about your pet if you’re interested in taking part! All you have to do is write a post on your blog about your fur baby and the funny, surprising or heartwarming thing they did. You can include pictures or videos if you would like to jazz it up and presto you’re done! We love sharing some of the great stories that we receive on our social media, so email me the link to your blog post once you’re finished so we can take a look at it and maybe we’ll share yours! We can’t wait to read all about your pet!
    Looking forward to hearing from you,
