Strange Bedfellows

Smudging windows with your nose,

Marring floors with dirty toes,

Shedding on the furniture,

Crud you’ve rolled in cakes your fur.

Snoring, scratching, snorts and whines,

Odors one cannot define,

So many things best left unsaid,

For now, it’s late. Hop in my bed.

    Amazing how we love our pets in spite of what they put us through. Perhaps a good lesson for life as well!

  9. Ah yes, the pretending the dog isn’t dirty… I tell myself it’s good for my immune system.

    Your dog is beautiful, I had to laugh at smudges on the window. They do like to look out them and put their nose on the glass.
