If dogs could

If dogs could talk, what would they say? I wonder, I wonder, what would they say? “Please to meet you on this fine day, Would you like to come outside and play? I would like a big run and a toy I can chew, A soft bed to sleep on when playtime is through, Somebody to love me, who I can love too, It’s really not much that I ask of you”. If dogs could walk like me and you, I wonder, I wonder, what would they do? “I would walk out the door when I wanted too, Or have picnics in parks with people I knew, I would skip in the sunshine; I would run in the rain, Then when I wake up, I would do it again! Happily strolling down lane after lane, The weathers no bother, sunshine or rain”. If dogs could drive, where would they go? I wonder, I wonder, where would they go? “To beaches, mountains and rivers you know, Where I can run free, these places I would go, I would swim in the rivers, in the fields I would run, Then drive back to my home when daytime is done, Back safe in the arms of my daddy and mum, Oh if I could drive, I would have so much fun!” If dogs could cook, what would they eat? I wonder, I wonder, what would they eat? “Steaming potatoes and big juicy meat, Sausages, burgers, oh what a treat! I would cook up some fish; I would boil up some rice, Make curries with chicken, pork chops and spice, I would throw in some vegetables, all diced up and sliced, Oh if only I could cook! It would be so nice!” Do you have a dog? Because if you do, Treat them kindly with love; don’t be nasty or cruel, Hug them every day, till night time is through, Because dogs too have feelings… Just like me and you.
