Sleeping Dog

Sleeping dog, I'll let you lie
if you'll do the same for me.
Don't wake me with your whine soaked breath;
don't pretend you need to pee.
Don't wet nose my ear
or take my covers in your teeth.
Sleeping dog, I'll let you lie -
now, do the same for me!

For Open Link Monday at Real Toads

Yeah, if I had done that, I wouldn't have gotten bitten so many times.

Ah, those doggies!! Fun one again, MZ! Have a great week!

Having a large dog that fits this check list to perfection, I feel your metaphor on a personal level.

:-)

Susan said...

Yeah. Good stuff.

Stacy Lynn Mar said...

what a cute read!

reminded me of a cat i once had...he was not happy unless he was making my sleep an impossibility! :)

MZ, This is one of those works where you think 'why didn't I write that????' I'm going to show this to my dog, with high expectations of reform.

Never (ever) become an owner of a miniature yorkie - for they will NEVER heed this plea… (sigh)

Such deals with the devil (and his dog) are disastrous when we aren't sure (or don't care to specify) what "lie" might mean.

Kim Nelson said...

Sounds like a wise and more than fair deal.

Justin Lamb said...

I would like my dog to read this.

Let me sleep!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Oh that wet nose.......Jas torments me on the couch, especially when my face is at nose level!

If only they would, but the slightest move seems to wake them up, and NONE of them have had their shots.

Am I the only old broad with an old horn-dog husband who read this metaphorically? "Honey, take things in hand and call me when some kitty cat invents female viagra". :-) Loved it, MZ. xo

laughing aloud, MZ. i'm, of course, helpless when confronted with canines. ~

I LOVE "whine soaked breath." That PITA puppy of ours apparently plays the same tricks that your dog does...

I have two unkempt Yorkies but this still resonates. Excellent Mamacita Zen

LOVE the "whine soaked breath"! It made me giggle... and it brought back bittersweet memories.

Now I miss my pup. Whines and all... ;-(
