its only fair

today was a day that i knew
that it would be a sin
if i didn't take troy to the dog park
to play with his doggy friends

if he couldn't run free in the sunshine
and breathe the autumn air
if he didn't race through the fallen leaves
it just would not be fair

i wasn't the only human
that had the urge to go
the parking lot was full of cars
i think we're all afraid of snow

troy ran to his heart's content
he sniffed and marked the trees
there were boxers, labs and a st bernard
and a pug with a very strong wheeze

it was a truly glorious day
how i loved the smell of the leaves
all the dogs were happy and tired
when they got in their cars to leave

i'm sad that winter's coming
with its snow and frigid air
for we'll sit inside and miss the park
and dream of the days we were there

i got the dogs walked just in time
a big storm just blew in
the rain is pounding at my windows
now the fun begins
the house is dark and cozy
i made a cup of tea
i think i'll sit and read a bit
with a blanket wrapped round me
my little dog is snuggled tight
and snoring quietly
oh isn't life just wonderful
if we've but eyes to see
