Wish I Was A Family Pet

I wish I was a family pet Whose only needs are to be fed And to unceremoniously Relieve themselves in the park I would of course be more discreet Now about licking myself In an effort to keep clean Hmmm might draw the line there Simply because I may injure myself Trying to reach hard to get at regions I guess I would prefer to be a dog Cats are certainly more sophisticated But full of their own importance When most dog species Are loveable and bowl you over with love Hmmm now that I think about it Apart from not having to wear a collar Perhaps I'd rather remain a human © Jack Ellison 2015

Could not live without them. Some were born at home and some I saved. My dream would be a place to take in all the poor dogs and care for them. They are small dogs and stay inside. Adult Pee pads work great!

A pet? Not Dragon! But He wasn't allowed in the park until we put in, a small fake rose garden, and taught him how to ash every thing. He'd covered one too many cars. Especially, as the last one belonged to the Sheriff of Crazyland! Now we run to the park every morning and I don't have to clean it up. He's gotten good at ashing everything there. Not so good here. Incentive! Incentive! incentive! He began to behave when he was almost forever kicked out of the park! Shows even a Dragon can learn!
