Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

The stockings where hung by the chimney with care

In the hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there

But at the North Pole sudden changes arose

All down to Rudolph and his ruby red nose

Clipboard in hand, a breed expert arrived

He motioned to Santa saying," please step aside".

A smooth haired coat and a muscular build

A broad deep chest our Rudolph did yield

The breed expert's pen, created pages of ticks

Then he suddenly called out "good lord, we've been tricked!"

"This creatures no donkey and clearly no horse!

I know these things! I've attended the course!"

Look at my clipboard the boxes are full!

It's very obvious to me: Rudolph is a pit bull!

Out with the measuring sticks, he explained to Santa the law

And he measured poor Rudolph from shoulder to floor.

As the spectacle continued Santa said with a sigh

He's a reindeer you fool! Why must he die?

"The law is the law" the expert said standing tall,

Then picked up his mobile and made a quick call

The sound of sirens filled the peaceful night air

and Rudolph removed to who knew where?

Days turned too weeks and confused and alone

Rudolph pined, for the place he called home

As the first snow started falling Rudolph gave up the fight

And he took his last breath on a cold winters night

You may think this is funny, if a little untrue.

But how would you like it, if it happened to you?

If your dog was taken because of its look?

Because it ticked enough boxes in some silly book?

Regardless of parentage it doesn't matter what breed

If it ticks enough boxes then it's a done deed

So humour me here and pretend this is true

Think how you would feel if it happened to you.

Cuddle your hounds while you have them close by

For some spend this Christmas, waiting to die.

Now back to the story, it doesn't end there

One more short verse I need to share

Santa fetched Rudolph's body and cried for his friend

And swore to himself, this would not be the end

And I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight

"The law is wrong, please help us to fight!"

Spare a thought for all the hundreds of canines and their famillys all over the world that have been torn apart because of breed specific legeslation and the thousands of dogs that have been destroyed/died because of it this year. Please oppose BSL in all it's forms.

This made me tear up a little, even though it's a little silly

but the prettiest pitt is always up at the disc golf park I go to--he's gigantic, I'm not sure if they're truly supposed to get that big... reversed brendel(sp?). And he's the sweetest dog up there too.
