Dogs and Cats

In my life, I’ve had about five . . . . . . . . . . . DOGS

What naughty chewing little beasts they . . . ARE

Nonetheless, I still think they are . . . . . . . . .COOL;

However, I’ve had twice as many . . . . . . . .. CATS

Independent, sweet and clean they usually . . ARE

For that, I find  cats to be just a tad bit. . . .  COOLER

Man's Best Friend

Diligent, playful, and wise, 
Of furry paws and soft loving eyes,
God’s amazing gift to mankind.

My Dog Oliver

M y precious beloved, neurotic doggie
Y es, I almost kicked my husband out of bed and replaced him with Ollie

D oes not like to go downstairs, so you have to coax him with a treat
O verweight, so he grunts when he goes upstairs, his favorite place to be
G oes to sleep most of the day, unless it is time to eat

O liver is my mini-dauschand with short little legs and fat feet
L ong he is and a bit heavy and allergic to everything he eats
I spend lots of money on dog food because he is so high maintenance
V et bill too there are so many illnesses, sore feet, nails, and what else?
E verytime I go to sleep he lies close to me, he’s my best friend of all
R ight next to my husband whose sleeping like a log!

Minstral

Mainly a friend that loves and amuses
I often would be lost without you
Never a moan parts your lips
Steadfastly you guard our home
Tenderly you wash and groom the cats
Ready to go for a run at the drop of a hat
A true and loving companion you
Live life with wagging tail and a smile

Hello Kitty

Hello, all my fuzzy friends
Embarrassed, but I gottah tell you that cats and dogs are my buddies
Loving my family and friends...so...much
Live life to the fullest and to the best of your ability
Ohhh...what a world full of positivity and negativity...what a messed-up world

Krazy kool kats drive me nuts
Idolizing their cuteness and their noisiness
Totally tricked by their fickle ways
Trained to make an excuse that it's "one of those days"
Yeah...my pets are the best and cutest!

Magic Girl

Mindful and true, the Lord brought us a feminine jewel. 
An angel exalted with her perfuming personality.
Golden auburn hair glistens with poppies and marigolds.
Intellectual and direct are notes from her piano soul.
Cooking is one of her classical talents I sure miss.

Guarding her side is her Beagle Terrier mix, Ody.
Introspective, she questions and has glorious truths.
Regal, she is like a fairy tale princess from the past.
Lovable--all are captured by her bountiful beauty.

July 13th 2016

Dedicated to R.K. I think of her as a daughter of mine.

Solving Insomnia

Dogs barking loudly at night,
Even when you tell them to stop?
After midnight or early hours,
Despite you having called the cops?

Don't you worry, I've been there too,
Open-eyed and out of my mind.
Good thing I acted; now I can sleep;
So maybe the next pooch will be more kind.

D eliberately messy, he is full of puppy crazy joy,
O ff to fetch each ball my feeble arm can send,
G ives me my paper from the morning paper boy--
S lobber makes the daily news more palatable to comprehend.

My profession

I went to school for dog training and to groom
I wanted to be the best
mistakes, in this field,
there is no room,
and your always put to the test,
My teachers,
they were hard on me,
The speaches,
on equipment and safety,
learning all the different hair cuts,
to give these wonderful mutts,
each dog,
different, a little bit,
It took me a while,
I have to admit,
they all have to look great,
you can't run late,
sometimes a dog will get a nick,
you have to know what to do,
and you can't panic,
cause dogs, they feel through you,
but at the end of the day,
when the dogs look soooooo good,
would I go through it all again?
why yes, I suppose I would.

ROTTWEILLER

                                                ROTTWEILLER

R eady to serve
O pen to kindness and understanding
T otally dedicated and devoted
T olerating only one true master
W illing to learn
E ver faithful
I mmense heart filled with love
L onging only to be loved as he loves you
L oyal and accepting to the end of his days
E xacting in his duties giving what he thinks is expected from him
R ottweiller - A good dog but not for everyone.

The Rottweiller is probably descended from the Italian Mastiff during the Middle Ages
and was originally used as a herding dog. 
It was bred in the German town of Rottweill.
It has a massive, powerful body, powerful scissors type bite and dark brown eyes 
with an expression of quiet good will and loyalty.
His personality is nervous around others but tranquil, brave and obedient with his 
family. He is easily trained with someone who knows what they're doing and has 
great desire to please. If he knows what is expected of him that's exactly what you 
will get. HE IS A NO NONSENSE DOG and becomes vicious if he thinks he or his master 
is in danger. He will give his life in the protection of his master or his master's property.
He is used as a herd dog, in police work, and as a watch dog and body guard.
Extremely affectionate but NOT the dog for everyone.
He needs a master with common sense, not some idiot who wants to beat him into 
submission. NO DOG NEEDS THAT!!
THEY HAVE AN INNATE NATURE TO BE CLOSE TO SOMEONE.
DOGS ARE PACK ANIMALS AND NEED TO BE PART OF A PACK OR FAMILY .
IF NOT THEY SUFFER HORRIBLE MENTAL ANGUISH. 
DOGS LOVE COMPLETELY AND NEED THAT LOVE RETURNED.
THEY ARE THE NOBLEST OF SLAVES.
                                                                                          Judy Ball

Kavik

IDEALLY, THE WORLD WOULD UNDERSTAND WOLVES.

Rarely do they kill just to kill…but for survival.
Even when wild dogs kill sheep, wolves get the blame.
Mysterious, aloof, confident, proud and beautiful
Every action a wolf takes is for the good of the pack.
Many people fear Canis lupis and kill them randomly.
Believing that the death of a wolf helps profits,
Erroneously they are  killed when flocks are attacked.
Ranchers round up and set out to eradicate…the wolf.

Killing creatures like my murdered friend, a hybrid wolf (83%), hurts.
Adventures in our family, he was part of our pack.
Vacations, fun, and visits to parks ended; a needless killing.
I could not believe my yearling wolf was dead; poisoned.
Kavik, I still miss you, my playful, loyal friend.

When I think of wolves or see a movie about them, I always miss Kavik’s love and kisses.

Beach B B

Beach, I went sunburnt,
Evidently, I learnt,
Across the road ,
Cantered cane toads, 
Henry thought it’s fine,
Bull mastiff Jerry Hog's,
Laugh's at every bodies dogs,
A growling all the time .
No body wore their togs,
Kangaroos were banned,
Elisa sat and did count frogs,
Too hot the ladies fanned,
But later on the Hog had gone,
I thought he did it nicely,
Not the dog on the grog,
Go a bit unsound precisely,
Over dog diddle cocked leg widdle, worn so nicely.

Tucker

Tucker is our eighty pound Dogo 
Argentino family pet.

Under foot is where he lays.

Creeping into the kitchen at the 
smell of food; hoping, if he’s lucky
he’ll get a crumb, or two.

Keeps me tripping; he’s leading, 
then he abruptly stops, to see if 
you are still behind.

Evening and morning; you see 
two shadows, one is mine, the 
other is not.  

Rotten; spoiled beyond repair. 
He doesn’t know he is a dog, 
he thinks he is human.

doggone

   Lost my dog, the leash slipped out of my hand, and I fel-l
   Obviously I searched high and Lo                                    
   Somewhere out there my dog was in distres-s
   The search continued and I started to fre-t
   Does a  dog  usually return to its  yar-d?
   Only hoping now someone would  be a her-o
   Glad someone was, he was found;  I got back my do-g!

Debs rattle

Acrotic?
Bored, I got sunburnt,
Evidently, I learnt,
Across the road ,
Cantered cane toads, 
Henry thought it’s fine,
Bull mastiff Jerry Hog's,
Laugh's at every bodies dogs,
A growling all the time .
No body wore their togs,
Kangaroos were banned,
Elisa sat and did count frogs,
Too hot the ladies fanned,
But later on the Hog had gone,
I thought he did it nicely,
Not the dog on the grog,
Go a bit unsound precisely,Over dog diddle cocked leg widdle, worn so nicely. 

ALLITERATION?
Met her on the Balmoral tram in 68 or 9,
mostly she was short and sweet our eyes did lock,
miss Dark hair, she'd brought some wine.
Maybe came together once sublime and then she went away.
My fate to meet, a child to make, & parted from that day.
My boy was born in 69 perhaps an adopted fate,
May wonder where is he now this Dan or Nathan maybe 28?

Abc?
All I wanted was the sex,
But she wanted babies,
Can I take a bloody bex,   (pain killer)
Don’t care much for rabies,
Every time I vacillate,
Frown it comes with maybes…

PEPPER-MINT

P-etite puppy, we missed you this Easter!
E-specially my nephew - who knew you since he was two.
P-erhaps you sent us doggy kisses from the rainbow bridge.
E-ven a bathroom door that I didn’t have to close, and no visible sound
R-eminds me of you. Pepper we all love you. Tears…we love you so!

M-y mind races at your loss, a family dog -
I-ntegral part of my sister’s life.
N-ew day dawns, so quietly, no barks.
T-hirteen years, peerless, given by the Creator.

Message in an Acrostic contest

Any other day it would not matter a hoot.

Calm and serene were the sticks littering the ground
Remnants of green branches starved of sap and left to brown and die.
Only on this day along came a dog looking to play with
Something his owner would like to throw
Switching throw-and-fetch, to dog-bring-stick for human-to-throw.

So the game started and the stick was picked-up, thrown and returned to stick pile home by dog,
Till the owner got tired of throwing the stick, and walked out on the mown grass lawn
Ignobably dropping and deserting the stick, left all alone, all forlorn on the open grass to get
Cross and angry with both dog and owner for leaving the stick way out there on grass, despite
Knowing a stick's home is arrayed happily scattered and crossed in amorphous piles of pick-up sticks under trees.
