Dogs On Thursday

Poem for New Puppy Owners

Don't smell crotches, don't eat plants, Don't steal food or underpants.

Don't eat my socks; don't grab my hair,,,

Don't eat those peas, don't touch that bush, Don't chew my shoes, what IS this mush!?!

Eat your cookies, drink your drink,

Outta the toilet! Outta the sink!

(and must you kiss me after that!?!)

Raising a puppy is not for the lazy,

Those rugrats are funny, but also quite crazy.
Don't despair through the toil and the strife.

"Cause after three years you'll get back your life!

So lets go for walkies, so you can do your "thing"

And maybe I'll get back my diamond ring!

This wonderful poem is borrowed this morning by the fantastic 'wonderpuppy' site.

Happy Dogs on Thursday!

We have had quite a few new people join in the last week and a half.

Please go visit and say 'Hello' and as always sniffing and slobbering are optional.

Don't forget our 'Doggie Costume Contest' started last week and will run until October 24th.

I hope everyone has a barking good week during this change in season!

Elise and I are certainly happy it is Fall again on the prairie!

Love the picture! I see I'm not the only one glad that Fall is here ;) The poem was wonderful...we're in the midst of a 9 month old pup ourselves, so I completely identify with it!

Cute! Glad I'm a cat!

What fun! I post my dogs anyway, so I'll just have to make sure to do it on the right day. And we already have new Halloween costumes in place.
