Dogs Life

many dogs with stick

It’s time for a walk

My dog and me

Boots on

Wagging tail

Shooting out of the door

As fast as a bullet


Barks of delight

At the grass and the wind

Playmates arrive

Sticks in mouths

Friend growling

Running in circles


All three join in

Running round together

One stick in three mouths

Almost joined at the hip

No one dare bark

For fear of losing the stick


Game now over

Happy and slow

Home for breakfast

Exhaustion sets in

Flops on his bed

It’s a dogs life.

I’m a black Labrador

Oh NO, don’ do that, your chin is so soggy

I really don’t like you jumping at me at all

Don’t you realize who I am

I am a black labrador


Oh NO don’t do that, your paws are muddy

I really do not like mud

I have breeding you know,

I am a black labrador


Oh No I’m not running after your stick

You’ve covered it with your slobber

I’m not keen on you sharing mine either

I am a black labrador


Oh NO I’m not going to chase you at all

I am not going to do that running thing

I like to plod and meander along

I am a black labrador


So who are you, remind me again

Oh you are a Labrador too

Do you have pedigree  like me?

you do, Ok I’ll play with you.
