She still runs and plays like a pup,

She barks too much for my taste, yup,

Of course she is going to whine,

Her mommy left her with me, which is fine,

Only a couple of days, but she is such a baby,

She has yet to cross any even imaginary line…


She is just lonely for her mom,

And I got her tied up outside,

She is not familiar with my yard,

Crazy her whining & barking is driving this bard…


Any advice would be well appreciated,

She is only almost across the street from home,

Probably that she can still see home is why she’s blue,

But for now she will just have to live with it,

And learn she is here for a short time, alone she will be,

I cannot sit outside and keep her company, stuck to her like glue…

Dogs weren't meant to be tied up.

Aw c'mon Ed let the little one in. The worst that could happen is you'd get attached. Now is that so bad? Patrick

Cute write about a cute puppy. I'm sure he survived his ordeal of being away from Mommy. Hopefully you did too.

in yard that is not hers, You are a great neighbor
to keep her safe!

Poor Dusty! Take your roommate inside, wrap her in a warm blanket, give her a Milkbone, and tell her a story.

she's lonesome, can she come inside? talk to her, explain that her mom will come back. good idea about an article of clothing, or something with mom's scent on it.

I don't have any advice, Ed; I can only empathize and wish you and Dusty all the best. Love and peace,



Ed's got a new friend named Dusty
Her mood is a little gusty
She's yapping and whining
Barking and pining
And Ed's canine skills are rusty

ED - can you get into your neighbor's trailer? if so, get some of her used clothing from the

dirty laundry hamper - hopefully with her scent on it - also the pillow from her bed - or even a hairbrush - make Dusty up a little bed and try one article at a time.

might calm her down ... cuz tk .

Great article/poem! Some furry pals are needed along life's journey. I mean, what would the journey be like, without pals? Unfortunately I lost my pal 'Burt' the back gate was left open, and for the third and final time he ran off and was no doubt snatched. I'll stick a picture up for you to see, as soon as I find the poem I did about that day.
