A Dogs Life

It really is quite tiring, lying in the sun,
looking out for danger, protecting everyone,

All the time pretending that I don't even care
I'm sniffing out the undergrowth, to see what's lurking there,

Chasing after next door's cat can be extremely funny,
but I much prefer to find a patch of warm grass when it's sunny,

I sleep with one eye open, I am constantly on guard,
while noisy human puppies go careering round the yard,

Sometimes I'll do a trick or two, to keep my humans happy,
but when it comes to dinner time they better make it snappy!

I know it's just a dogs life, but I say, without conceit,
there's more to being man's best friend than to play or sleep or eat!
