APED: "doggerel"

February 13th, 2009 (10:58 am)

Rub my belly. Pet me often.
Sneak me under-table treats.
Throw balls for me. Take me walking.
Trim the toenails on my feet.
Watch me running. Watch me digging.
Watch me chasing pussycats.
I like your face. It's made for licking.
I'll snuggle close. You must know that.
You took me off the street. You saved me.
So I'll curl up to you in bed.
Boss, I'll even let you bathe me.
JUST DON'T TAKE ME TO THE VET.

Awww! And heh, to the bathing and vet! Dog love! *snuggles own doggie* (For some reason there's far more cat than dog poetry around... I don't prefer one to the other, I just wonder why it is so.)

My dog LOVES the vet. Seriously. To him, it's a place where, sure, there's some minor discomfort, but on the other hand there's lots of humans who give him rubs and attention. I've never seen anything like it.

Of course, this is also the dog who will often times wait several hours to eat his food because he just can't be bothered, there's too much other interesting stuff going on.

In truth, my dog is exactly the same way about the vet. If you flipped the bathing and vet around, it would accurately describe her, but going to the vet is funnier, so.

"Oh, boy! We're going to the vet! That's where people pet me and say I'm beautiful and look into my eyes and give me food."

"...honey, they do that everywhere."

"I KNOW, BOSS. THE WORLD IS AWESOME."

I was thinking of your post when Buttercup was all “Lady! Lady! Help, the door tricked me! It trapped me on the outside!”
