no walkies for me

With a crouch and a jump and I miss it
Why can’t I get it myself
Why can’t I get the biscuit
My mistress leaves on the shelf

Normally I wouldn’t steal anything
But not a happy girl am I
She has gone out and left me
Didn’t even say goodbye.

Normally a tap on the head and that biscuit
Comes my way when she’s going  out
I give her my paw to say thank you
This pleases her I have no doubt

She thinks I am a well-trained boxer
Well I am when I want to be
Other times I think, shall I, shan’t I 
When she says outside for a wee

Oh, I hear the key in the door now
Shall I sit here and pretend I haven’t tried
To get myself a biscuit
But the debris might prove that I lied

There is flour on the floor
And on me now,  rice all over the place
Will she be cross I wonder
Should I hide without a trace

So I slink away to my bed now
Pretending that I am asleep
‘Til the screams of horror awoke me
What she called me would earn a bleep

Bad girl was one that she uses
Flowered up to make it sound bad
Think walkies is out of the picture
Now I am feeling sad

What a day I am having
No biscuits or walkies for me
She had better hurry up and let me out
Cos now  I really must p ee.

    Nice poetic way of describing what is going on inside of your dog's head.

    Nice one. You do wonder what goes through your dog's heads at times! Ours once went through a vase of flowers, put them in piles apparently based on colour, then ate the carnations!
