Chasing Tails

His tail it swagged, swaying splendiferous,
Like a belt, it thrashed vigorous,
I watched him saunter in a line,
Letting out a mellow whine,
He whimpered, he nudged, he did insist
Hoping I would get the gist
"Out" I sigh and over I roll
To head out for his morning stroll

For this week challenge Sammi has come up with yet a another fantastic word to get the inspiration flowing… Early in the week I already had the title set from Fandango’s (#FOWC) challenges and Sammi’s word once again fit perfectly.

      1. Gosh…their complete and unbiased love is SO worth any inconvenience that I never question. ❀

    2. So true… still think his cuteness and puppy dog eyes will get him whatever and whenever he wants though 😊❀

      1. I always accept the blessing that they are feeling well enough to be a bother. The alternative is hardly bearable. ❀

    4. Shockingly he has been to well behaved to even say a bother, no chewing random things, no toilet mishaps even… and still sleeping alot due to his age. Had a bordercollie/rottie previously who liked wood so much he tried to eat a wooden table of all things and had to avoid parks with wood chippings… Unfortunately bad breeding and no joining hip bones – so steroids and 3 hours walking each day – so in contrast to being a bother not sure they can truly be one (even when we had to ensure he was fully okay all times and avoid people thinking he was cute to pet who could touch his back hips) ❀

  4. This took me back to my doggie days, I quite miss the occasional ‘walkies please’ nudge even if I didn’t appreciate it at the time! Nice one.

    My fifty one!

    1. Lol so true- appreciate the pleasant nature walks when out… not so much the gentle nudge to get out of bed 😴 🀣

    1. You cannot 🀣🀣🀣🀣 I do not think resisting is possible – when you know it is good for them and what they need (and when they look at you with those puppy dog eyes) – and thank you for your lovely words for the poem too ❀

  7. They work their whiles around us. The thing is- and I know this sounds twee- but when we take them out they take us out of ourselves.
    And thanks, etc.
