Thumper's Thoughts for February

Warmer weather is just around the corner. Living in "vacationland" that means lots of visitors. Now I personally LOVE having house guests, however I have noticed that not all house guests appreciate the finer points of living with a dog. Perhaps you have noticed the same thing. I recently came across this little poem that sums up my thoughts on the matter.

Woof,

Thumper

My Dogs Live Here

My dogs live here, they’re here to stay.
You don’t like pets, be on your way.
They share my home, my food, my space;
this is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,
They will alert you’re at the door.
They may request a little pat;
a simple “no” will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say,
“Just how is it you live this way?
They smell, they shed, they’re in the way.”
Who asked you? Is all I can say.

They love me more than anyone,
My voice is like the rising sun;
they merely have to hear me say
“C’mon guys, time to go and play.”

Then tails wag and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say “no time for you”;
they’re always there to GO and DO.

And if I’m sad? They’re by my side.
And if I’m mad? They circle me wide.
And if I laugh, they laugh with me;
they understand; they always see.

So once again, I say to you,
come visit me, but know this, too.

My dogs live here, they’re here to stay.
You don’t like pets, be on your way.
They share my home, my food, my space;
this is their home, this is their place.
