Panda and Oakley Our Dogs
Panda decided to have a serious talk with Oakley
I always have to ride in the backseat, he complained
So tomorrow when we get in the car, can you jump in the back seat?
Oakley barked an okay, but not meaning it actually.
The next day it was the same thing.
The back backseat was opened.
Get in Panda, the mommy said.
Oakley looked away, embarrassed because he had promised
But had no intention of keeping the promise
So Panda had another talk with Oakley the next time they saw grass.
Oakley readily agreed, yet, they both knew he did not mean it.
When the car pulled up Mommy said “Come on Panda,”
Panda gave Oakley a sad face, but Oakley did not see it.
He was turned away, checking out a pretty little cairn terrier.
