I wag and stretch, just like any other day,
But they turn away, they just don't know what to say,
In the car I look out at the country passing by,
It has to be done they say with unhappy sigh.
Out of the car in a strange place,
They dare not even look at my face,
Then it's into a cage and a signature given,
Out of the gate my people have driven.
I sit down and howl, oh why have they left me?
I don't understand, please come back and get me.
The day it drags on then into another,
Please come back I won't be a bother.
The weeks go by, one two three and four,
My pads they get sore as I claw and claw,
I hang my head because all hope is gone,
It's just no good and I can't go on.........
I lift my nose and heave a big sigh,
I spot a nice lady, she's just dropped by,
A poodle is the only dog it can be,
I bark right out loud, take me take me,
She looks down so kindly my heart it just leaps,
Oh take me home and love me for keeps,
All I want is a lap and a nice juicy bone,
I'll by your dog, please please take me home.
The ending is happy as I'm sure you all know,
My tail's always wagging as I love my folks so.

Hey look at me practicing my rock climbing, I might need a paw up as it's difficult to get a grip. Hard to believe but when I first came out of rescue I wouldn't even climb the stairs. Now I scoot up and down all day in the office - piece of cake!

I got in to trouble at work this week. I was just patrolling the office in my usual efficient manner when I smelt something fishy so of course I thought it might be contraband and I'd better investigate. Upon further investigation which involved unwrapping some rather tricky tin foil I discovered a tasty tuna fish sandwich. Well I was just about to test it when Di said "hey that's my lunch" and it was snatched away. Talk about possessive, I work on the basis that if it's on the floor it's fair game (anyway it seems not all humans agree with this policy).

This is the sort of grub they make for themselves, huh........

I had a dream, worldwide recognition for my blog, then wow I woke up and danced for joy - dreams really do come true - Crikit, Sparky and Ginger gave me a blog award - how cool is that?

Reach for the sky dog bloggers, I will be having a 'thunk' about who to pass on the honour to.

When Grandma and Grandad bought their new sofa they said no doggies allowed, can you guess how long it lasted!!!

The handsome chap (don't tell him I said so) in the picture is Spock he usually lives with my human's sister and he seems to be making himself right at home ( I hope Grandma hasn't given him all the chicken)........Grrrrrr

Hi Guys

This is me practicing my devil dog routine. Although I'm normally a fluffy cuddly type of chap I can do scary when required (especially when someone who shall remain nameless has wound me up by dumping me in the bath). A flashing eye a wolfish grin , I scare the living daylights out of myself.

Instruction for Sparky to get his burger back from Fatso cat.

1. Print the above as large as possible, then cut round cat - extra neat.
2. Paste on a convenient patio door (picture facing in)!
3. Place fat cat's food bowl by the picture.
4. Hide close by and make mewling noises to get fat cat's attention.
5. Fat cat will leap up race over and knock himself out attacking the pretend cat, THUS ALLOWING YOU TO RETRIEVE YOUR BURGER.

Hope this works, let me know how you get on. to read about Sparky's fat cat problem visit his blog.
