We did take a short break. My uncle wanted us to work on our manners just a bit.
So, we sat together and listened to what he had to say. He says we should both have a little  
                   "Labrador Patients"                                                                                   Now, I'm not real sure either one of us have any of that. In fact, I'm not even sure what it is. I couldn't help but wonder, where do we get it?  He didn't tell us that.                                                  
      (Maybe they sell it at the dog store.)
 Maybe mom can get us some.
It wasn't long before we grabbed a few bites of snow and back at it we went. Time out was over. We picked up right where we'd left off.
After all, we had this nice big yard to play in. Who knows how long it will be before we get to do this again? And,     "Day Light's A Burning."                                                                                   
                                Why waste it?                              
We were off to the races again!  We must have been  
putting on a pretty darn good show. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. There were lots of smiles and a lot of laughter going on. 
                                                                  I wish we could do this every day!
If only this could last forever. Unfortunatly  Rocko and my uncle 
eventually did have to go home.  Ah Darn!   
    We had a blast!
Turns out, Christmas 
was a special day. I got a new toy and a bone. But the best gift of all was spending time with my brother! This time, when I went to my bedroom so mom and dad could go upstairs to eat and spend time with grandma. I didn't care. It was just fine with me. I was so tired it didn't really matter to me. I just wanted to go to sleep and dream about the wonderful day spent playing with my brother Rocko.   Our first Christmas together was fantastic!  Yep,       
                                               Christmas is a special day!
                         I Love You Rocko!                 And off to sleep I went...
