This was sent to us for the blog from our buddy, Linda Cook, with Homeward Bound Pet Rescue and Referral in Fairbanks. Linda and I love to read this and smile...it seems to sum up our lives!! Our two rescue programs work very closely together and truly make a difference for many unwanted animals...so we see ourselves written in all the lines below. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
One Dog Is No Trouble And Two Are So Funny
The Third One Is Easy, The Fourth Ones A Honey
The Fifth Is Delightful, The Sixth Ones A Breeze
You Find You Can Live With A Houseful With Ease
So How 'Bout Another? Would You Really Dare?
They're Really Quite Easy, But Oh Lord, The Hair!
With Dogs On The Sofa And Dogs On The Bed
And Crates In The Kitchen... No Bother, you said!
They're Really No Trouble, Their Manners Are Great
What's Just One More Dog And One More Little Crate?
The Sofa Is Hairy, The Windows Are Crusty
The Floor Is All Footprints, The Furniture's Dusty
The Housekeeping Suffers But What Do You Care?
Who Minds A Few Nose prints And A Little More Hair?
So Get a new Dog, You Can Always Find Room
And A Little More Time For The Dust Cloth And Broom
There's Hardly A Limit To The Dogs You Can Add
The Thought Of A Cutback Sure Makes You Feel Sad
Each One Is Special, So Useful, So Funny
The Food Bill Grows Larger, You Owe The Vet Money
Your Folks Never Visit, Few Friends Come To Stay
(Except Other Dog Folks Who Live The Same Way)
Your Lawn Has Now Died And The Shrubs Are Dead,Too
Your Weekends Are Busy, You're Off With Your Crew
There's Dog Food And Vitamins, Training And Shots
And Treats, Beds and Toys, Which Cost Lots and Lots
Is It Worth It, You Wonder? Are You Caught In A Trap?
Then That Favorite One Comes Up And Climbs In Your Lap
His Look Says "You're Special", And You Know That You Will
Keep All of The Critters, In Spite Of The Bill
Winter's A Hassle, The Dogs Love It True,
They Must Have Their Walks, Tho' You're Numb And You're Blue.
Late Evening Is Awful, You Scream And You Shout
At Dogs On The Sofa Who Refuse To Go Out
The Dogs And The Kids, The Mess, And The Thrills
The Work And The Worry, The Pressure, The Bills
The Whole Thing Seems Worth It, The Dogs Are Your Life
They're Charming And Funny And Offset The Strife
Your Lifestyle Has Changed, Things Just Won't Be The Same
Yes, Those Dogs Are Addictive And So's The Dog Game!
Oh so true for us doing dog rescue...Have a great day!!! Carol
