New Puppy – a poem

New Puppy

Don’t smell crotches, don’t eat plants.
Don’t steal food or underpants.
Don’t eat my socks, don’t grab my hair . . .
Don’t eat those peas! Don’t touch that bush!
Don’t chew my shoes … What IS that mush?
Eat your cookie, drink your drink.
Outta the toilet! Outta the sink!!
(And MUST you kiss me? After that???)
Yes, raising a puppy is not for the lazy!
Though puppies are funny, they’re also quite crazy.
But don’t despair, though its toil and strife.
After 3 years, you’ll get back your life!
So, let’s go for “walkies”, you can “do your thing”.
(And perhaps I’ll get back my GOOD DIAMOND RING!)

Yep, Riley is living up to this poem! He even chews on mom’s ring while she is wearing it! I bet Dixie is living up to it too! šŸ™‚
