wag your tail, it's wednesday



              my favorite part
of the pride parade ...
of course, 
it was the dogs

it was not the politicians
that captured my applause

the floats were cool, 
the kids were cute,
the costumes were the bomb

but the groups 
that stole my heart ...
had fur, and tails, and paws

A Poem by Winston Churchill

POOR PUGGY-WUG

    Oh, what is the matter with poor Puggy-wug
    Pet him and kiss him and give him a hug.
    Run and fetch him a suitable drug,
    Wrap him up tenderly all in a rug,
    That is the way to cure Puggy-wug.

wag your tail, it's wednesday

some dogs like baths
and some dogs don't
if you say to jump in 
i probably won't
if you let me jump out
i probably will
'cuz i've never liked baths
and i feel that way still

my hair has a funny lump
my nose has a little red bump
this day's looking bad
and I'm feeling sad
and I'm turning into a grump

technically they say it's spring 
but in my mind it's not 
when the stella d'oro lilies bloom
and the days are doggone hot!

wag your tail, it's wednesday


so different, 
yet they fit together
like pieces from a puzzle
when one is missing
there is a hole

so alike,
in the love they give
unconditional and non-judgemental
when they are together
our life is whole
