LOL - this so captures the essences and basics of the days - doesn't it. And it shines with love. Although I suspect there is more than just the "see Spot run" feeling to what actually goes on in their minds - certainly in their hearts - but as for the reality? I don't wanna know about the actual mind games - I'll happily just accept the whole picture and all the love, unconditional. Energy bundles of joy. Aren't we blessed.

I smiled through every word and line. That is a well loved happy boy. I wish all dogs were as well loved. Shay, this was utter delight to read. Thank you so much for writing to my prompt,

Oh my, what a delightful diary of a dog. I just loved it!

Rommy said...

AW! Stop melting my heart with the cuteness! This is a perfect stream of consciousness piece.

Gillena Cox said...

Nice one

much love...

Ha.. the attention span of a dog. Really how I imagine them talking... the short full stop lines really made it for me. In the last piece of longer fiction I wrote told the story from the dog's perspective... I had to invent a dog and I know that if I ever had a dog I have to name him Tabasco.

Ha Ha this poem brought big smiles... :)

They certainly keep us entertained... and busy!

Sara McNulty said...

This captures the exuberance and simplicity of animal needs. Love it!

And some people say, they wouldn't want a dog's life. Your dog is very busy! So much to do. Best part cuddle and scratch the tummy! Delightful! zzz

hedgewitch said...

Ha! I think you understand the canine mind all too well. ;) And it's great to be guarded by someone who cares.
