A Poem for the New Puppy Owner

Don’t smell crotches,
Don’t eat plants.
Don’t steal food
Or underpants.

Don’t eat my socks,
Don’t grab my hair. . .
DON’T RIP THE STUFFING
FROM THAT CHAIR!

Don’t eat those peas!
Don’t touch that bush!
Don’t chew my shoes. . .
What IS that mush?

Eat your cookie,
Drink your drink,
Outta the toilet!
Outta the sink!

AWAY FROM THE CAT BOX,
IT’S FOR THE CAT!
(And MUST you kiss me
After that???)

Yes, raising a puppy,
Is not for the lazy.
Though puppies are funny,
They’re also quite crazy.

But don’t despair
Though its toil and strife,
After 3 years
You’ll get back your life!

So, let’s go for “walkies,”
You can “do your thing”
(And perhaps I’ll get back
MY GOOD DIAMOND RING!)
