THE REAL MISSY










A picture or two,
I try to get, 
But do you know what?
She turns away -
My pretty pet.

Then there came a day
she chose to pose -
All wrapped in the quilt -
except her tail and nose!

A RESTFUL EVENING AT WESTWIND HOUSE














The Doggies discuss things from their points of view:
What can we do? What can we say? 
It’s been kinda so-so around here today . . .
A long spell of boredom has hit House of Moore
Yet, fleet feet we doggies still race to the door.
The energy level for humans and such
Seems missing a notch or two - just a touch,
Until you compare it to us doggies times two,
Who really delight in the game of “Now who?”
Yes! Who will we ask to let us out of the door?
One first, then the other - surely not more!
Both at once would mean human exercise would be nil -
And we don’t want our people over the hill!
So, Missy, it’s your turn, then it’ll be mine.
We’ll keep asking ‘til bedtime – ‘til then t’wil be fine.
First he gets a turn, then she‘ll get one, too;
Oh, don’t you know they’ll be happy to do
All that they can to help you and me
To stay happy and healthy
As we run outside to pee?
Then it’s my turn again before we quit this game
Until tomorrow when we start all over again  -
As soon as we see them each sit in a chair
With plans of their own for going nowhere!
We’ll show them they’re really folks of great wealth,
With personal trainers overseeing their health,
As we make sure they sit in their chairs none too long,
By each taking their turns to answer our song
That tells them we have to go outside right soon
To join the doggie chorus and howl at the moon.
To exercise gently as bedtime draws near,
Then it’s inside to sleep as dreams of tomorrow appear
When once again we can start a new game
And give them a chance to call out our name
As inside they tell us to they want us to be
Where, for a while we can cuddle and be their company
Then soon our game starts all over with, “Who?
Who gets the first turn to tend doggies times two?”
