Winnie's fourth Christmas carol

Today's festive song reflects on one of my most embarrassing moments of 2011.

It wasn't wise and it certainly wasn't clever and I hope the Lady Of The House never has a similarly silly idea again.

I didn't have to cross the desert - but I did have to cross the parade ring at the Sutton Greyhound Show.

Off we go, to the tune of We Three Kings (of Orient are...)




Me, one dog, from Burton-on-Trent.
I've got the hump. I wish that she'd spent
a bit more money
It isn't funny
My feelings I have to vent.

I am not a camel!
Not a goat!
Not a donkey in a coat.
Fancy dress!
It's just a mess!
Don't sit there and laugh and gloat.


I could've worn pink. I wish that I had
Looking at HER it made me so sad.
Tutu and hat
I could've worn that
This camel idea's so bad.

I am NOT a camel!
NOT a beast!
When will this dishonour cease?
I am a Queen
I think it's mean
Will somebody call the police!

Sorry Winnie, we don't mean to laugh...but...you look so funny! the pink tutu looks funny, too.

It was worth the embarrassment to get that great poem.

Better luck in 2012.

Oh that seems like doggy abuse. We would rather have the pink tutu too.
