Four legs, wet nose and wagging tail
Sniffing and peeing everywhere.
A fur coat that fits so well
Without the need for underwear.
Big and small, podgy and slight,
They come in all shapes and sizes.
Some growl, some bite
Some lick and some win prizes.
Guard dogs, lap dogs,
Perfect little pets.
Costing you the whole hog
As you pay the vets.
Man’s best friend in a huddle
The smelly sentinel
They’ll give you a big cuddle
If you’re not feeling well.
For dogs, delight is the essence
They love to walk and play
But they can be a bloody nuisance
So I gave mine away!
I was in a frivolous mood today! By the way – I love dogs and would never give them away even if they are a bloody nuisance at times and cost you an arm and leg.
