I was trying to get a photo for a painting but he wasn't having any of it. lol
Don't they know, a dog like me
Was never meant as upper crust
Posed in paint for all to see
A reward will come of this, I trust
Namby-pamby, looking cute
"Show your face!" They'll bill and coo
Of course they'll learn I'm more astute,
Inclined to show a different view
More cajoling, plead their case
Lift my head? They've got no chance!
Without a treat to buy my grace
I'll not be feigning elegance
Do they really think I'll sit and pose?
I'm off, before they catch my glare
I know a place where no one goes
They'll never think to look in there.
