The Wolf Family Dogs
would like, to begin with, to say that though parents, husbands,
children, lovers and friends are all very well, they are not the dog.
-- Elizabeth Von Arnim
Our dogs sleep in bed. Even the
Wolfhound. If there isn't room, get a bigger bed or don't get a dog.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-size bed is soft and deep..
I sleep right in the center groove
My human being can hardly move!
I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and "I want food!"
I sneak up slowly to begin
My nibbles on my human's chin.
She wakes up quickly,
I have sharp teeth-
I'm a puppy, don't you see?
For the morning's here
And it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs and holds me tight
And shares her bed with me at night!
