This Dog’s Gotta “Go”

You went to bed late,
After a bit too much wine.
You said to yourself,
This is the very last time!

You had trouble sleeping,
Tossed and turned all night.
You finally conked out with,
The covers drawn tight.

You got up at three,
A little groggy, for sure.
Straight to the bathroom,
Then back to bed for more.

You almost woke up,
In time for our walk.
You asked, “Five more minutes?”
As if I could talk.

You looked so peaceful,
But I needed you to know.
That you may be dog tired,
But this dog’s gotta “go”!!!
