The Small Dog’s Salad Days…

Let us talk about ears, It’s a subject that’s sore, And the two-legs gets cross If I scratch with a paw (Even though, I would say That’s what paws are made for.) * Now, I have floppy ears Which, as everyone knows, (And especially dogs Who have got two of those) Tend to get aContinue reading “The Small Dog’s Salad Days…”

The Small Dog’s Downfall

She said I was scruffy and needed a bath, I said she’d be lucky, was having a laugh, ‘Cause my two-legs alone cannot lift me and hold me The best she can do is manhandle and scold me While she ends up dripping and I end up running… My two-legs shampoo me alone? She wasContinue reading “The Small Dog’s Downfall”

The Small Dog and the Hoover-Monster

She says that I am an unfortunate pup, I shed loads of hair that she has to clean up; When it’s summer the finest fur next to my skin Makes its way to the floor so my top coat is thin. * Now, myself, I think that is a perfect design… The fine stuff’s discarded,Continue reading “The Small Dog and the Hoover-Monster”

The Small Dog’s Complaint…

Dear writer… * I know you’ve only got two legs And elephants have four, But honestly, you sound like one When walking ‘cross the floor. * It’s every night; I go to bed And settle down to sleep, You stumble round, make so much noise ‘T would make the Sandman weep! * Perhaps you oughtContinue reading “The Small Dog’s Complaint…”

IndieAni Bones and the dragon’s lair III

WhatContinue reading “IndieAni Bones and the dragon’s lair III”

IndieAni Bones and the Dragon’s Lair II

We left Dragon Hill and parked a little way further up. My two legs was a bit cautious here, ’cause there was a lot of sheep to worry about, but to be honest, I was too excited to be getting up into the hills to bother about them. I’m not keen on sheep. The onlyContinue reading “IndieAni Bones and the Dragon’s Lair II”

IndieAni Bones and the Dragon’s Lair

It was a misty morning when she woke me. She was up and about earlier than usual… I wasn’t even awake when she started bustling about… and yet, when I’d had my breakfast and went for the leash, all I got was “Not now, girlie.” I ask you… what kind of a start is thatContinue reading “IndieAni Bones and the Dragon’s Lair”

The Small Dog in the Rain

She says I’m inconsistent ‘Cause I don’t like getting wet In bathtubs or in garden grass That’s been rained on and yet… I’ll jump into a muddy pool Or, in torrential rain, I’ll walk for miles exploring, then Ask to go out again. I’ll bound through all the long grass Holding water in its blades,Continue reading “The Small Dog in the Rain”
