DOG STORIES & DOG POEMSDog Stories, Prose & Poetry

Old dogs, war dogs, puppies or strays,

To an audience of one or a theater crowd.

 

 

 

ONE MORE DOG

Author Unknown

 

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!
