Family visit

My home was like a madhouse
Sister and brother in law came to stay
Bringing with them  2 boxers and a terrier
Tilly* thought it was xmas day

She is an old lady but  you wouldn't  think so
She and Boris a terrier were racing here and there
Was like she had a rocket up her butt
She is 34 kg he a mere 10  an unlikely pair

Silence reigns again cos home they have gone
I vacuumed the floor and steamed them
Cos half of the garden mud appeared upon
All evidence of fun times and utter mayhem

Its great to have visitors i must agree
The chaos it causes adds to the fun
Too much to eat , to many cups of coffee
Next time hooray, it will be their home,



*Tilly is my 9 year old rescue Boxer who is vastly overweight.
   Boris is a Westie x  a year old .

    this is such a cute story, Seren. It's wonderful to have visitors. I remember when I had my little Eskimo dog. He was so hyper. If I had had a relative try to bring another dog into the house with that over protective dog of mine (so territorial he was) it would have been a catastrophe. Anyway, your family sounds like great fun!!

    What a fun way to describe their visit. I wonder if they'll have a story on the Soup after you visit! Haha.
