The Small Dog’s Dog Days

She’s still smelling funny, She doesn’t look right, She gets up and down Like a yo-yo all night. I’ve given up following Each step she takes Just watch from the sidelines Whenever she wakes. If I’m missing out On my beauty sleep, she, Who’s in need of much more Misses out more than me. ‘CauseContinue reading “The Small Dog’s Dog Days”

Manna…

When something fell from heaven, “Well! What’s this?” the small dog said, “If clouds are raining food, now, Could I have a steak instead?” A crow had dropped its breakfast And it landed on the grass, But seeing Ani’s interest Decided it would pass. The small dog was a bit confused And thought she’d askContinue reading “Manna…”

The Small Dog Plays Mother…

I’m a creature of habit, I have my routine, I know where she’s going, I know where she’s been, I don’t like her going out late, or at all, I’d rather she stayed home with me to play ball. * This morning she did things before she went out With stuff in the bathroom, thatContinue reading “The Small Dog Plays Mother…”

The Small Dog’s ‘Recipe’ for Chicken

“There are, you know, limits, O writer,” said I, “To how long I’ll stay here to whimper and sigh. Perhaps it’s the heat that been making me sicken… But now I’m not well, you should feed me on chicken.” * “Oh Small Dog, you do not seem too ill to me, You’ve barked at theContinue reading “The Small Dog’s ‘Recipe’ for Chicken”

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…”

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”

The Small Dog’s moral judgement…

My two-legs came home soggy though it’s pretty hot outside. She must have gotten really wet or else she would have dried. I asked her what had happened to land her in such a state… “A fish!” she said… I wondered just what she’d had on her plate! * “The sturgeon!” she informed me, andContinue reading “The Small Dog’s moral judgement…”
