It Was In My Mouth

I felt her gaze upon me With unavoidable bright eyes Her adoration made me smile She is so innocent, yet so wise I swooped her up and held her close That's when it all went south With the speed of an anteater My dog Pixies tongue was in my mouth! Her mouth may be cleaner than mine That didn't dampen my chagrin Because I forgot, and licked my lips Even knowing where that tongue had been!

My hubby kisses our dog more than me - I guess I should break out the mouthwash!

This is enormously funny, as Sophie does the same thing to me and I cringe, knowing. Hilarious!
