Ode to Sandy

Posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2007 in Family, Poems and things

This is a poem for Sandy, Grandad’s faithful mutt.



I brought a puppy home one day.
Bring it back!  No hope! No way!
These words were spoken far too often;
Pup in arms, his heart did soften.

She chewed it all, she peed on floors,
Molted hairs and scratched the doors.
Forgotten now is naughty Rover;
Fluffy puppy love took over.

Parting now would be disaster.
Bearded buddies, dog and master.
Tennis balls contented sighs,
Collie fur devoted eyes.
Best of friends for ever more
Grandad, Sandy, chair and floor.

    Bark bark bark bark
    Bark bark bark bark bark
    Bark bark bark bark

  3. Grandad says:

    And GOD doth say
    A brain the size of a walnut
    A collie ye shall be
    with falling fur and high pitched voice
    and door scratching nails for you
    you’ll learn quite fast though not for long
    that walnut fills up quick
    walk down the street and walk without fear
    a trail of hair you leave
    make sure you rub and rub again
    visitors shall take 4 kilos home
    remember with pride that you’re a dog
    Yes, I said you’re a dog!!!! Now get off the couch!!!

    Sandy walked into a bar….

    The bartender said, “Hey why the long face?”

    ARF ARF!

    Speaking of dogs… I was woken this morning by my two year old daughter barking and licking my face.
    I really wouldn’t be surprised if Wouldye called me ‘mommy’ today. Maybe I should enroll him in the local school and keep said child at home in the garden.

  8. […] spells or something, just to revel in the awe-inspiring power of nature.  Dad’s poor doggie isn’t so impressed though.  She’s been cowering behind the sofa for the last hour or […]
