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.
