I'm So Lazy and Sometimes Crazy
and post notes and photos about your poem like Lu Loo.
Dedicated to my "Sweet Boy Musgy" who passed away March 13, 2018. My life will never be the same. I remember holding him in my arms in the car on the way to vet to turn him in to get cremated. Lifeless and yet, his tongue was still hanging out. Love him and miss him more than anything. I love you my sweet boy...may you run faster than ever and never forget how much we all loved you for 13 years. I still can't make your peanut butter treats for your brother Brady, it's just too hard... :) <3
My old man when he was much older.
I have always been so hopelessly lazy.
Stoic and aloof, sometimes psychotic.
I can be gentle yet independently crazy,
and my mommy says I can be neurotic,
but the affection in my family does amaze me.
I’m nothing but a lethargic slow pug.
Mugsy is my name with a curly tail.
I can be so stubborn and very smug,
and my sister Ella Rose is my pal.
When I was a pup I’d chew the rug!
My family treats me like their kid,
a child born into a life I love so much.
I get timeouts not knowing what I did,
but I’ll tell ya, after I love that "guilty" touch.
But really? Sent to my bed…God forbid!
I swear mommy knows I love human food,
I get scraps from the table every night.
Even when I’m in a poopy puppy mood,
they never get mad or start a fight.
Like Ella, I can be sassy and so rude!
My tongue always sticking out getting dry.
I can't explain why it never fit in my mouth?
But my mommy can tell you just why,
'cuz I was so comfy being me in my house.
I was always so loved and didn't even try!
I feel like my family is heaven sent.
I go for walks with my neighbor friends
every day on that grey floor called cement.
I did pray that my happiness never ends,
but I got old, age thirteen, my body spent.
March 13, 2018 across the Rainbow Bridge I ran,
it was so crazy because on earth I was so lazy.
My fur no longer grey but naturally black and tan,
and yes, up here everything does amaze me!
(Barking loud and walking proud)
I know I’ll always be the “Sweet Boy” in my fam.
