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…”

The Small Dog gets Busted

I may be in the doghouse ‘Cause, “Your face gives you away,” I’ve not a clue what she might mean… I’d just gone out to play! “Don’t come the innocent with me, I know what you’ve been at…” I wondered how, from in the house, She’d seen me chase the cat… “Have you been digging,Continue reading “The Small Dog gets Busted”

The Small Dog and the Housework

My two-legs really worries me When she starts with the cleaning, She climbs on things that wobble when she’s stretching out and leaning. She scrubs and talks of ‘elbow-grease’ And squirts stuff that’s all squeezy That makes things smell all flowery… And makes a Small Dog sneezy! The thing is, she has accidents With everythingContinue reading “The Small Dog and the Housework”

The Small Dog on Dieting

She doesn’t feed me. Not at all. I’m getting so much thinner. In fact (apart from several treats) I’ve not been fed since dinner! I speak your language pretty well, There’s ‘breakfast’, ‘lunch’ and ‘tea’… ‘Elevenses’ and ‘supper’ too, So why just two for me? She says that I am getting fat, A touch tooContinue reading “The Small Dog on Dieting”
