My Dog Oliver

M y precious beloved, neurotic doggie
Y es, I almost kicked my husband out of bed and replaced him with Ollie

D oes not like to go downstairs, so you have to coax him with a treat
O verweight, so he grunts when he goes upstairs, his favorite place to be
G oes to sleep most of the day, unless it is time to eat

O liver is my mini-dauschand with short little legs and fat feet
L ong he is and a bit heavy and allergic to everything he eats
I spend lots of money on dog food because he is so high maintenance
V et bill too there are so many illnesses, sore feet, nails, and what else?
E verytime I go to sleep he lies close to me, he’s my best friend of all
R ight next to my husband whose sleeping like a log!

    oh, my, Holly. Did I ever tell you? I had a dog, a beautiful but naughty miniature Eskimo with white fur. I called him Ollyver, with a "Y" just to be different. That is why I had to come see this poem. I see you love yours as much as I loved mine. But my dog was very protective of me and would "fear bite" like 2 times when Joe rolled over on him in bed. I feel so bad. I finally had to give him to Pet smart. He just would not learn to quit marking the corners of the house. I enjoyed your poem!

    Oliver sounds like he has a wonderful life - I have three mini schuauzers that live a similar life.
