I can just see Ed Kostro sprinkling on someones leg,

Or Eileen baring her teeth & growling,

Then there is me, I know when to come home for dinner...;)


If you meet someone that doesn’t smell right,

Be considerate, sniff the surrounding air,

Then relieve yourself on a leg that is theirs…


If someone chases you, be nice and play,

If persist the human does, just down lay,

If you’re not interested bare your teeth,

Make them think twice, give them room to pray…


When out on your own,

Away from your dad you can roam,

Be sure to come home promptly,

When dad does the dinner bell ring,

For if you don’t, the next time,

For your dinner you may have to sing…

A dog's life is worth living. Toilet water is good tasting and s**t is even better! Try that, fear factor!


Still stiff after all these years.

A huge "doberman"

but I was too scare to kick him away
So I cursed at his owner.
