Magpie #128 Woof

Woof

Sit stay
Oh no-
Can't we play?
Bad dog!
Look at my shoe-
Hey-it was just a little chew
Come on now
Let's go for a walk
Oh yes yes yes wag wag wag
I won't chew and you can talk
Come on now-
Let's get up
I shouldn't get mad-
You're just a pup. 
~~~~~~~~~
I think dogs are so loving and forgiving.
We are lucky to have them in our lives; 
as they can teach us a lot if we let them.

Brian Miller said...

ha...it has a bit of the manic energy that a dog can have when it wants to go out...to play...and i guess that can transfer to the owner as well...smiles.

You are right - dogs are so trusting and sometimes we badly let them down.

Dogs are loving and forgiving and there's a reason why they are known as man's best friend. Love your take.

I miss my two big ol' yellow labs...

Helena said...

Beautiful read! It's true - dogs are so loving and dutiful, loads of professions rely on doggie help for their jobs to run smoothly.

ps Kathe.......I just did the 'flower' test and ended up a 'Echinacea'. A rather droopy, tired, bedraggled looking thing! Boy are these things accurate....LoL

ninotaziz said...

That was fun, loving and true.

Lydia said...

It is fun to teach dogs tricks, but I have always learned more from my dogs than I have taught them.

Excellent Mag.
