Kickass, the doorstop dog, says since a dog knows of only one way to trim a tree, he will not be helping with that this year. Nor will he be assisting with any outdoor decorating due to his difficulty in climbing trees—let the cats do it.
Furthermore, Kickass will not be doing any carol singing because he has been told his attempts sound like so much howling. He also will not participate in any gift exchanging due to his having everything he needs and seeing that to be the case with everyone around him.
But he is not a Scrooge dog. Oh no! Kickass vows to stop chewing on Tiny Tim’s crutch, and should somebody give him a ham for Christmas he promises that after he has gnawed all the meat off the bone he will give it to the poor so they can make soup.
