poem about a dogs life




My life is just so ordinary,

For I am just a dog,

I wag my tail for my master,

And love to roll in the sod.


My master he takes me walkies,

Of which I don’t mind,

It gives me more exercise,

And be surprised at what I find.


My master thinks I am daft,

Especially when I have a bath,

I shake and shiver all a quiver,

And make my master laugh.


I love the way my master and me,

Play football in the park,

Until the night draws in,

And then it’s all to dark.


I love to chew upon a bone,

And get the marrow out,

And make a mess upon the floor,

And hear my master shout.


Now me and my master are getting old,

I’m not so brave, I’m not so bold,

My master he has spoilt me rotten,

Brought me so many things, I’ve forgotten


My master has made me so comfortable,

I don’t need ought for nought,

I have my bed, were I put my head,

This is a dogs life, THAT’S NO BOUBT.

We have two dogs, and they are spoiled, too. My wife always says if I die, I would be lucky to come back as one of her pets. This one gets a smile and a like from me!
