One Dog Is No Trouble And Two Are So Funny

The Third One Is Easy, The Fourth One's A Honey


The Fifth Is Delightful, The Sixth One's A Breeze

You Find You Can Live With A Housefull With Ease


So How 'Bout Another?  Would You Really Dare?

They're Really Quite Easy, But Oh Lord, The Hair!


With Dogs On The Sofa And Dogs On The Bed

And Crates In The Kitchen, Its No Bother You Said


They're Really No Trouble, Their Manners Are Great

What's Just One More Dog And One More Little Crate?


The Sofa Is Hairy, The Windows Are Crusty

The Floor Is All Footprints, The Furniture's Dusty


The Housekeeping Suffers But What Do You Care?

Who Minds A Few Nose prints And A Little More Hair?


So Let's Keep A Puppy, You Can Always Find Room

And A Little More Time For The Dust Cloth And Broom


There's Hardly A Limit To The Dogs You Can Add

The Thought Of A Cutback Sure Makes You Feel Sad


Each One Is Special, So Useful, So Funny

The Food Bill Grows Larger, You Owe The Vet Money


Your Folks Never Visit, Few Friends Come To Stay

Except Other Dog Folks Who Live The Same Way


Your Lawn Has Now Died And Our Shrubs Are Dead Too

Your Weekends Are Busy, Your Off With Your Crew


There's Dog Food And Vitamins, Training And Shots

And Entries And Travel And Motels Which Cost Lots


Is It Worth It You Wonder? Are You Caught In A Trap?

Then That Favorite Comes Up And Climbs In Your Lap


His Look Says You're Special And You Know That You Will

Keep All The Critters In Spite Of The Bill


Some Just For Showing And Some Just To Breed

And Some Just For Loving, They All Fill A Need


Winter Is A Hassle But The Dogs Love It True

And They Must Have Their Walks Tho' You Are Numb And Blue


Late Evening Is Awful, You Scream And You Shout

At The Dogs On The Sofa Who Refuse To Go Out


The Dogs And The Dog Shows, The Travel, The Thrills

The Work And The Worry, The Pressure, The Bills


The Whole Thing Seems Worth It, The Dogs Are Your Life

They're Charming And Funny And Offset The Strife


Your Lifestyle Has Changed, Things Just Won't Be The Same

Yes Those Dogs Are Addictive And So's The Dog Game! #1111
