Neighbors got a fancy system
fer their own securitee
gotta know sum 8-code number
gotta password, yesiree,
Well, thet's fine fer snooty people
rich folks pay ta keep out harm
I kin sleep jest like a baby
with my 5-Dog House Alarm.

Yew take Whitey, he's the Top Dog
he gits blame an' ridicule
if the pack ain't home by evenin'
he gits dressed-down, as a rule,
Toss sum meat scraps on them porch steps
an' it works jest like a charm
I don't fret, they got me covered
with my 5-Dog House Alarm.

I don't need no gun or rifle
I don't need no Beware sign,
with my K-9 super guard dogs
I kin git along jest fine,
Nuthin' gits past them 5 guard dogs
wake 'em up, they'll git yore arm!
safe as in the hands of Jesus
with my 5-Dog House Alarm.

~ Connie ~

Iffen yew cain't run with the Big Dogs,
then git offen the porch!"

Very serious look at the humour of having dogs as low tech security systems. I love it.

ADT, Brink & Slonim watch out, you have major competition and it's much cheaper! "5 Dog House Alarm" is so original and entertaining. Every dog lover should read this. Would make an excellent plaque for pet shops, dog grooming shops, etc. My best, Gloria

Yep, the 5-dog house alarm would work...but I gotta have some concern, especially after what Jerry said about the pork chops!
Good one, Connie! :)

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 8/14/2006
Yes, indeed, this is the fail-safe way to protect your house and loved ones, uh, that is until somebody come around with a few pork chops for the hounds. Cute.
