One Halloween Night at High Tail

It was a windy night on the 31st, the full moon was a couple of days past

The whole hotel seemed to be alive with creaks and whistles and gasps

 The pups huddled together by the kitchen light, Elke and Jasper held court

 'Spread out and look the whole place over, come back and give a report’


 ‘But there are noises here that I don’t like’, Wasser said as she shook front to back

 Maya nodded and Willy held up his paw, looking up he said ‘Listen to that!’

 The noise sent Timmy and Lenny to hide under the desk, Lily curled herself into a ball

 Clyde and Henry and Bali and Tag all decided to hide in the hall


 Calix and Nalu came in from yard, always out bravely on patrol

 ‘It must be the wind’ they said to the pack but even they feared it was a troll

 From the bedroom ran Sugar and Buddy asleep, ‘What’s going on in here today?’

 ‘There’s a ghost in the house’, cried Ariele, ‘and I’m too young to be taken away’


 Right then the lights flickered, sizzled and popped, darkness fell everywhere

 ‘Hold on to each other’, Alfred said, as he pulled Chuck and Charlie into his care

 The dogs of High Tail stayed close together, holding each other so near

 Whatever may befall us we’re not afraid, our friendship will always be dear


 Just then the lights flashed on everywhere and Doozle stood alone with a grin

 ‘I did it! I did it! I found all the treats hidden upstairs! C’mon let’s all dig in!’
