Giving After Dinner Thanks
What is it about meals that makes dogs go wild?
We can understand how they act as their food is prepared
But it is the after food performance that can catch you unawares.
What do I mean? Of what do I speak?
It’s a strange little thing that most of them do.
Observer the next time, it might surprise you.
I suppose that even dogs need to use some sort of napkin
Because of the drool they leave behind on the floor
It must bother them more than we ever knew
That is the only thing I can think to explain what they do.
Next time your dog eats, watch until she is through
Then watch as her face she seems to try to undo.
For some dogs they rub their faces into the floor
Posterior up and their backs angled down
Front legs wrapped under them like a very warped snake
As they twist and groan and odd little noises they make.
Their heads flop to the side, this way and that
More entertaining than the strange behavior of a cat.
Others prefer to give their own person the credit
Walking right up and putting their faces in your lap
Then they grind away making you squeal
You try to back away because you are beginning to feel
That you are the napkin they wish to use to clean up.
Know this is how they give thanks, so give them a pat, the poor pups.
