Which dog?

You have probably noticed the domain name has been down for a few days. We are working behind the scenes to get this up and running and will let you know as soon as its fixed. Thank you.


Which dog?


At last we’re going to get a dog,

a loving  family pet

but, sadly, we all disagree

on just which dog to get.


Mum who loves her garden beds,

who weeds in them for hours

demands a breed that’s guaranteed

to stay away from flowers.


Liz would like a Pekinese

to put up on her lap

but Mum believes that dogs like these

will only bite and yap.


Dad is sure a boxer dog

would guard the house from robbers

but Liz and I would rather die

than have a dog that slobbers


And I would like a Doberman

but Liz says they’re too scary.

She’s still saying Please, a Pekinese

but I say they’re too hairy.


The more we talk, the more I think

we’ll never get this pet.

The dog we need must be a breed

that hasn’t surfaced yet.
