The Puppy

Some dullhead dropped a puppy off in the country Not realizing he would find his way to Nirvana Our house He is the size of a pony but has a sweet disposition Our cocker spaniel is terrified of this German shepherd mix Our twelve-year-old cat has disappeared Animal control came by Congratulated us. He is not chipped. You can keep him. We said that was not our intention as they waved goodbye Apparently they have no more rooms for a dog. I am trying to find this baby a home. I have put ads in social media. I have advertised his photo, and given him a great rep. My husband has named him Buddy. He’ll be sleeping in my bed in a week.

He is built like that cartoon dog Marmaduke.

Ha! I told you so! I saw the note where Joe is taking him to the veterinarian to get shots, wormed, neutered...whatever. I think he is more than a guest now.

He chewed his collar in half yesterday and gulped down a ham bone we thought he might want to chew but he didn't.
