Christmas – Day 5
On the fifth day of Christmas my dog has too much energy.
I grab breakfast and we head out the door
He can barely contain himself as he catches the odor.
The door opens and he takes off as I calmly walk with my tea.
The two greyhounds are back again for another round.
There are also a bulldog and a cocker spaniel.
I rile them up with a whoop and a yell
Then we four owners watch them like a merry-go-round.
Standing on the sides we enjoy a little chat
And watch as the dogs get along quite well
It’s nice to sit back and relax for a spell
And let the dogs play at being diplomats.
Of course there is a bit of mud that finally catches their eye.
Deep in discussions we miss their initial reaction
Had we seen we would have allowed this distraction.
Too late we seem them mud covered and we collect them with a sigh.
Five dogs out to have a really good and muddy time.
Five dogs acting the age old traditional pantomime.
