Dog Walks

Canis cruises round the block,
wagging tail a happy flag,
head held high, a strutting cock.
Canis cruises round the block,
thinks he is a little jock;
mother carries scented bag.
Canis cruises round the block,
wagging tail a happy flag.

All is well and life is gay,
puppy emits pints of pee,
lots of grass to smell and spray.
All is well and life is gay,
planting land mines on the way,
waters hydrant, bush and tree.
All is well and life is gay,
puppy emits pints of pee.

Doggie dallies, taking stock,
newsy sniffer, friendly bark,
never mind the ticking clock.
Doggie dallies, taking stock,
has to stop and check each rock,
‘specially in wet, cold or dark.
Doggie dallies, taking stock,
newsy sniffer, friendly bark.

I just got back from one of those "planting land mines on the way, / waters hydrant, bush and tree." You penned it perfectly, with embellishments that, after reading them, i just had to shake my head and say here is a person who knows what walking a mutt is all about. Well done!!
