Brunch with the Small Dog

Me and the dog had a sandwich for brunch (Well, for me it was breakfast, for her it was lunch.) She follows me into the kitchen like glue Just in case I might rustle up something to chew.

The snow came down, fell thick and white As far as I could see… She opened up the garden door So it could fall on me.

Dear Santa, We’ve still had no snow. Do you have wheels for the sleigh in case we don’t have any?

The Small Dog Shows Support…

Some people need to learn to sleep, Adjust their body clock, Not keep a guard dog wide awake… It sends the job acock * She spends her evening counting sheep, Her nights at half-awake, I spend my time in dreams of sleep And wish her count would break. * She says it’s not her choiceContinue reading “The Small Dog Shows Support…”
