Magpie Tales #217 Wake Up!

Sofa Dog, artist unknown
Provided by Tess Kincaid

I surfed the net
Ordered some treats
Made you coffee 
And still you sleep?

What's a doggie to do
When he wants to poo
And walk in the park
Do I chew on your shoe?

Take a look
I am being so good
I guess I'll just wait
While reading my book

~~~~
Dogs are so darned patient-
unlike cats......who by this point
would have pushed you out of bed!

Very well done and so very true. Dog are patient, while cats want what they want right now. Bless their hearts.

Of course I love this! Doing a bit of doggy/cat sitting until later today. Yoda the kitty pushed me out of bed this morning, Sammy the dog slept another hour! Jet lag almost gone, not quite.
