Just a few reminders of why we love our JRTs so much, and what is so great about dogs!
- “After 6 hour hikes
And swims in the lake
I thought you’d be good
To rest for the night
But instead here we are
In the middle of the night
You’re just racing around
With no end in sight
Laika my dear
Will you ever calm down?”
2. “The plants are torn
The garbage strewn
The wires chewed
The couch and I had a fight …
I went places I should never go
I saw a side of myself I should never see
I said things to the cat I can never take back
So please don’t ever leave again”
3. “Don’t pretend you don’t know what this look means.
I‘m sitting here by the kitchen door for a reason, madame.
No, I don’t need a pee or a walk or a ball or a pat.
Nothing will satisfy me until I hear the rattle of kibble in my special dish.
Everything leading up to this point has prepared me for proper pleading.
Resistance is futile in the face of my patented puppy dog gaze.”
4. “A toothless old dog from Japan
Had only tried fish from a can
She discovered that sushi
Was delectably mooshy
And required no blender or pan”
5. “You can't buy loyalty, they say
I bought it though, the other day;
You can't buy friendship, tried and true,
Well just the same, I bought that too.
I made my bid, and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole job lot
Of happiness, so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single trusting heart,
That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not
for sale, Buy a brown-eyed puppy with
a stump for a tail.”
6. “I love my dogs, this is their home. It's my hope they'll never roam. My faithful friends, they are the best, this is their home, you are the guest. If to you they are a peeve, then by all means please feel free to leave!”
