the song in my heart
of peace on earth and mercy mild.

Eve of Christmas Eve

Santa's not going to count those couple of times
a little badness slipped out, is he?
Should I send him a text and explain about the 
yoga blanket, duvet cover and quilt chewing?
Does he know that sometimes after a naughty chew
I put myself in my crate for a time out?

without making any noise.

Hunting Flies

I've got one in my sights. See, I track them with my eyes.
And then I bark at her until she gets up
and does the dirty work.
It's a big one.

Awkward Family Pet Photos

It was flattering to be asked to review this book.
I take my responsibilities seriously, 
honesty is my honor code.
I wanted to gush about it, but what was most awkward for me about The Awkward Pet Photo Book is that the best photo is on the cover. A bit of a yawner. But might be right for a vet waiting room.

Dog Psalm #62

Accept the day's gifts.
Snow is joy.

Thursday, October 27, 2011


This is how they look to me.
tempting, delicious and just out of reach.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011


Mmmm. This blanket sure smells good.
Yep. This delicious blanket has birds inside it.
I keep forgetting - don't hurt birds or blankets.
Soft mouth. No bitey.

Killing Frost

I'm looking forward to a hard, killing frost.
There have been tons of ticks around.
A hard frost will kill them off.
You don't see any ticks on me now do you?

Dog Psalm #60

Keep your prayer cards close to your vest.

Thursday, October 13, 2011


I didn't think I'd be keen on abstracts 
but their appeal kind of sneaks up on you.
If you spend a little time with them
you can almost get a scent picture.

Tuesday, October 11, 2011


Fall is full of the smells of change;
a scent buffet.

Bad Biker Brad

I hope you don't mind 
that I tried on your blue leather coat.
Let me get my look together.
Get my biker face on.
How do you like me now?

Oh, please can I, can I, can I wear it?
I promise I won't spill anything on it.

When there are fallen leaves inside
I know Fall has arrived.

Choosing a Picturebook

  Which one to pick?
It's always so hard to judge a book by its cover.
And even harder to read titles that are vertical.
Wait. I think I can sense the location of Good Night Moon.
I love that one...bowl of mush...
