If you love a spotless clean home
and If its gets messy..you will moan
Then don’t even think of getting a puppy
Your home will be transformed untidy and mucky
Immaculate white carpets with muddy paws
Scratch marks on the bottom of most your doors
Shoes which used to come in pairs
Hoover clogged with puppy hairs
Walkies and treats at the drop of a hat
their life doesn’t get any better than that!
if you’re sneaking out putting on your shoes
They can hear you clearly! whilst they snooze 😴
Jumping up like something possessed
Just as you’ve sat down to rest!
Off down the road he pulls and drags
Not forgetting - the poopy bags!
A nice bracing walk to blow cobwebs away
better though on a sunny warm day 💨
Playing running - chasing sticks
Excited hot breath sloppy licks
Evening’s frantically licking your feet!!
under furniture to find lost treats
This is the life of a dog and their ways,
then lay beside you with that adoring gaze
if you are house proud and no time to spare
You need to give love and show that you care
If you don’t like them following you into the loo
Then probably a puppy just isn’t for you!
