I've been so busy with recording, web site building and other things its a while since we had any fun. Let's try this one, its an oldie but always goes down well.
MAN’S BEST FRIEND
I bought my kids a puppy,
from the RSPCA
I thought they’d have a true friend
To take for walks each day.
We had to call him Zorro
Because he did not bite or bark
But everywhere in our house
He left his little mark.
I learned he was a "Soona Dog"
A rare and special breed
He’d sooner dump it in the house
than ever go outside.
Now dogs are sentient creatures
They need lots of love and care
and Zorro went and fell in love
with my favourite armchair.
He chewed the rugs, the bedding too
He made love to the sofa
But at last the day of reckoning came
When he chewed my Gucci loafers
I called a family conference
Said I can take no more you know
I’m a kind, forgiving person but
Me or that dog must go.
Next day arriving home from work
I found my suitcase on the step
With a note that said quite simply
"Love us, love our pet."
For once the animal was sober

|LOL! Ian, great read! I have two dogs, my male has
been rebelling for some unknown reason and
every time we leave the house he chews on whatever
he can find...none of which is his!
I owe you a message, will send it tonight!

|LOL. Oh, I know the feeling. I felt the same way when my husband brought, Mavis, a beagle puppy home to stay.|

|Gave me a good warm chuckle, Ian. You know the dog steals the shoes, furniture, and objects of the one he loves, misses, or is most curious about in the house. LOL

|Ian, though I expected the ending, it didn't matter a bit... the delivery, the infectious rhythm and rhyme stole the show entirely! When you listen to your funny bone, skeletons everywhere start giggling. (grin) This is hilarious! katy xox|
