The Doggie I Asked For……

The Doggie I Asked For……
I asked for strength that I might rear him perfectly;
I was given weakness that I might feed him more treats.
I asked for good health that I might rest easy; I was given a "special needs" dog that I might know nurturing.
I asked for an obedient dog that I might feel proud; I was given stubbornness that I might feel humble.
I asked for compliance that I might feel masterful; I was given a clown that I might laugh.
I asked for a companion that I might not feel lonely; I was given a best friend that I would feel loved.
I got nothing I asked for, But everything that I needed.

“Wiener Wonderland”

Dachshunds howl, Are you listening?
In the snow, frozen poop is glistening;
It’s a beautiful night,
We gave the neighbor’s cat a fright…..
Walking in a wiener wonderland! 

Chased away all the kittens -
Shredded a scarf & some mittens;
We’ll howl and we’ll bark ‘til long after dark
Walking in a Wiener Wonderland.

In the yard we'll mark with yellow on the snowman;
We might pretend that he's our Postman John;
Mom will toss our toys & balls & Frisbees,
And then it's back inside to lounge around.....

To snatch the treats, we'll conspire,
As we snooze by the fire -
Then we'll run in the yard, Chase the squirrels
         (we try so hard!);
Walking in a Wiener Wonderland.
