I'm So Lazy and Sometimes Crazy
I have always been so hopelessly lazy.
Stoic and aloof, sometimes psychotic.
I can be gentle yet independently crazy,
and my mommy says I can be neurotic,
but the affection in my family does amaze me.
I’m nothing but a lethargic slow pug.
Mugsy is my name with a curly tail.
I can be so stubborn and very smug,
and my sister Ella Rose is my pal.
When I was a pup I’d chew the rug!
My family treats me like their kid,
a child born into a life I love so much.
I get timeouts not knowing what I did,
but I’ll tell ya, after I love that "guilty" touch.
But really? Sent to my bed…God forbid!
I swear mommy knows I love human food,
I get scraps from the table every night.
Even when I’m in a poopy puppy mood,
they never get mad or start a fight.
Like Ella, I can be sassy and so rude!
My tongue always sticking out getting dry.
I can't explain why it never fit in my mouth?
But my mommy can tell you just why,
'cuz I was so comfy being me in my house.
I was always so loved and didn't even try!
I feel like my family is heaven sent.
I go for walks with my neighbor friends
every day on that grey floor called cement.
I did pray that my happiness never ends,
but I got old, age thirteen, my body spent.
March 13, 2018 across the Rainbow Bridge I ran,
it was so crazy because on earth I was so lazy.
My fur no longer grey but naturally black and tan,
and yes, up here everything does amaze me!
(Barking loud and walking proud)
I know I’ll always be the “Sweet Boy” in my fam.
