Do you remember being adorable when you were young and cute,
No one calls you adorable anymore because now you’re a big galoot.
Your mouth has drool your nose is wet your ears are covered in food,
Your wagging tail sends things aloft and your sniffing is sometimes rude.
You think that the couch belongs to you and you don’t want to share,
But when I’m in the kitchen for a snack, at me you’ll intently stare.
I don’t get to take a nap anymore unless your nose is in my face.
And your snoring is strong enough that you just inhaled my pillow case.
But even if I’ve had one of those days filled with error and trial,
I know for a fact that when I get home I’ll get a Bloodhound smile.
