Our Bear

Our Bear.

Our Bear, he’s big just like a horse
He’s a really handsome dog
Always hungry, he loves to eat
Then he sleeps just like a log
He don’t like cats or little dogs
A Rottweiler, he be
But he just wants to smooch with folk
No killer dog is he.

Wherever there is food about
That’s where our bear, will be
Most folk adore this great big lump
A people dog, is he
But when that dog, he passes wind
Folk can’t believe their ears
He sounds just like a ruddy trumpet
His smell brings folk to tears.

He seems to know we don’t like it
So when he lets one go
He knows that he must go outside
Even though we love him so
And so he walks up to the door
With guilt wrote on his dial
Although he smells just like a skunk
He really makes us smile.

    Love this jolly write my friend. I haven't a dog now because losing one would kill me I think. We lost KaShaundra's dog, Midnight , back when she was 12 years sold. That was 14 years ago. The pain was huge and very deep. I dare not chance it again. Yet may just have to soon as Justin asked a few weeks ago if he could have a dog!

    Hi Rober, I understand what you say. I have had my fair share of dogs that have died on me. it's not a good feeling. Mind you when my Bear farts I feel like giving him away LOL. There is nothing like a big loyal dog. I live in a bad area, and he makes me feel safe. I appreciate your kind comments, my friend....peter

    Hi Jerry, He's a great dog, and in his vicinity I live in I need a big dog. No one would get in and rob my house. Every one has had break ins excepting us. Thanks for your kind comments, mate....peter
