2014 Twas the Night Before Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas, almost the end of a year;
We’re hugging our pets – that’s something to cheer.
We’ve wrapped up their presents, tied up with a bow;
But we still wonder and worry – is the food safe we put in their bowl?
The FDA is nestled with close ties to Pet Food;
While complaints from consumers disturb their good mood.
And AAFCO continues with another meeting in weeks;
Will consumers have justice or will politics reek?
Inside information from Santa I must share;
The work is almost done – the full truth we will bare.
Little elves are working overtime on this most amazing feat;
What consumers have done – there is nothing so neat.
Within just a few days, after the start of the New Year,
All regulatory authorities will have nothing to cheer.
What we’ve found – what we’ve proven – is mighty big stuff;
FDA and AAFCO will grumble, their mood will be gruff.
Consumers will finally have scientific proof as their voice;
Authorities will have to listen – they will have no choice.
Our concerns and complaints went unheard for so long;
We took matters into our own hands – we have the proof of what’s wrong.
There’s one thing for certain – not even a doubt;
There is nothing as special as pets and pet people I shout.
Your love of your furry ones is awesome indeed;
Your support of us advocates is also awesome indeed!
I wish you all the best Holiday ever;
Thanks to all of you, I never say never.
Next year…with science, we will continue the fight;
The Pet Food Test Results will be published – they will be our might!
Merry Christmas to all – Happy New Year too!
