“Animals are such agreeable friends;

They ask no questions,

They pass no criticisms.”


(Unlike Many Wives)


George Elliot


Music: I Can See Clearly Now


We were watching television, with all of my lovable mutts

When we saw a man driving around town, with his Buffalo

My spouse cringed in horror - I found it extremely fascinating

“That is So Cool!” I soon shouted - while she yelled out “Oh, No!”


This Buffalo loving man is quite a celebrity, up in Canada

He has customized his car, to make enough room for his pet

“And you get all agitated whenever my mutts dirty the truck;

You know, I haven’t had any pets any bigger than a dog yet!”


“Don’t you dare even think about bringing home any livestock!”

My wife now shouted, as she could barely watch our TV anymore

Bailey the Buffalo, was now sprawled out inside this guy’s house

He and his pet were watching television, on their living room floor


“What a truly marvelous wife this Canadian guy must have!”

I gushed, as the Buffalo loving man’s spouse now came into view

And my wife simply couldn’t believe her ears, when his wife said,

“My husband and I both love our Bailey – he’s just so darned cute!”


Before I could even point out what a truly heartfelt statement that was

My spouse clicked off our TV, jumped up, and rushed on off, up to bed

An hour later, I was out in our garage, thinking about customizing my truck

She was still awake, with some horrific new images racing through her head


Today, I’ve been calculating how much room a Moose needs,

They must love riding around as much as Dogs and Buffalo do;

I just can’t let this Canadian fellow get all of the fame and glory,

My brand new Mutt & Moose Mobile, is gonna be pretty darn cool.

That would be pretty cool:) As a dog lover, I say let the fabrication on the new mobile be underway. Fun one to read.

Don't forget about the side benefit to help pay for your modification. Moose droppings are hard as rocks. When I was in Alaska they were varnished and turned into Jewelry and sold to tourists. Now what wife could resist shiny moose orbs dangling from her ear. I suggest you head upstairs right now and break the news. Your helpful jewelry consultant, Patrick

Maybe you should forget about the moose & go for instead a mouse, they are so much easier to take care of...e
