Dad may cut up on my parentage, but I know what I am, can he say the same?

a true mutt…


daddy says I am a true mutt,

I know I am a lot of things, but,

it seems he is mistaken regards a mutt,

my mom was a collie & my dad a Shepard,

just cause I am of mixed parentage,

doesn’t mean he should tell everyone,

it just seems wrong, I mean, he is of mixed parents too,

one was german, one irish, so what else is new?


maybe my parents also had other breeds in them,

but I know they loved me, just wish I could find them,

are they alive & do I have brothers and sisters, ahem,

just think, I could have a sister, incest is truly the best,

only one is all I need, but I would still be happy with the rest,

and to know my parents would truly be funny, a real jest…


so if anyone out there does genealogical work,

if you could look up my mom & dad, dog wise, as I love who I have,

my human folks are really the best,

Daddy is a little weird, but still I love him & that you can have no doubt,

even though he does besmirch my parentage, he is still just about,

the greatest daddy any doggy like me can have, again, no doubt…

Rufuz, I'm sure "Mutt" was used in a very loving aspect. Now don't give "Daddy" too much credit in your poem about you. You truly are a man's (and woman's) best friend. Auntie b P.S. Leave the incest part alone.

Little guy, I must tell you that incest is a very dangerous game.
It is, however, one the whole family can play together.

Good luck in your search.

Mixing the brew just increases the taste :-) I have many mixtures in me too. English, French, German, Swedish, talk of Viking.....I like that talk :-) Maybe that is where my gypsie feet come from, although to look at them you would think china because they are so small. Maybe this is why I accept everyone so easy? I could be anyone LOL. Interesting write :-)

Interesting write, Ed. I often wonder if animals ever think about their parents or their siblings; or if they miss them.
