Now how can I get even for getting me all stressed...;)

Why do I have to go through this every so often,

I am a dog of great talent and breeding,

Just cause I have to get dad to do my reading,

Doesn’t mean through a dog wash I have to go to get my fur softened…


Twice through the summer,

I have to put up with this, what a bummer,

Daddy seems almost to get a laugh,

At my expense, bet he would not do it if I were a giraffe…

He just kinda drops me off,

To be pampered or so he says,

There I suffer through a bath,

A blow dry with a high speed fan,

Then they put a muzzle on me,

And clip off my nails, daddy doesn’t know it,

But he is incurring my wrath,

And my memory is like an elephant,

Just wait till I get him on that wooded path…

Oh are so well taken care of and fed and pampered and above all're loved. There's a few Dixie dawgs I know who'd love a summer home and a winter home not to mention a whiff of gonja now and then...yeah!! That's the ticket!

my daughter's dog (the size of a small horse) has to be doped up on valium before he will submit to this pampering...makes me wonder what they do to these guys during these visits to make them hate it so much

Now you're talkin, Rufie Boy! Sounds like a new comic book spin-off to me. 'Mad Dog Vs The Jersey Devil.' This could be a Blockbuster! Start Writing!!!

PS How many baths does your Dad take every year? And check his toenails. And look behind his ears!!!
