When you have a dog in your life…

…there is always reason to laugh!

A Bit Long in the Tooth

Our oldest little woof, is now over 11 years old
Not a hugely old age, for a mongrel I’m told
But changes have started, life’s taken its toll
And some of these changes, are starting to show

It started around the eyes, (as most ladies will know)
Although it isn’t wrinkles, that started to show
Her patches were once a lovely deep brown
But they’re now speckled white, with the odd grey around

She’s a lot more tired and, loves nothing more than a nap
(and I must say, I’m a bit envious of that)
But when she curls up, into a nice doggy dream
She snores the house down, ’til I’m ready to scream

She’s always been the boss, the one to lead
But her direction is off, causing laughter indeed
On her daily walk, she caused such a lark
By charging at the poo bin and proceeding to bark

There is also the incident with the sneaky lamppost
That must have snuck up beside her and said boo like a ghost
She didn’t like it, not one bit
And gave it a good barking too, she looked such a…ditz

Another walk lately was a scene quite mad,
She had heard the rustling of a carrier bag
Assuming it was an enemy, she set off on foot
Disappointed at the outcome, although it was such a hoot

So, time has come, to keep her on the lead
It won’t be easy and she won’t be best pleased
The problem with her craziness is it’s me that looks mad
Laughing alone in a field with a dog and a bag!

Catching up on a nap!

    🙂 I enjoyed this. My youngest son (21) is raising a yellow lab a girl he was dating last year abandoned with him. She brings us much joy, a year old bundle of energy. Last night she liked the turkey in our yard, later on four deer startled both she and my son. She (usually) has me laughing at her antics.

    • Aww that is so beautiful and wonderful Laurie. My little lady is getting on a fair bit but I love that she still makes us laugh. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. KL ❤
