At the witching hour,
The zombies are walking the streets.
With only one eye open,
The slumber just broken
The cyclops admits his defeat.
The sidewalks deserted,
Their life is inverted
By four legs that are attached to a leash.
Holy cow it’s a weekend
But they are ruled by the best friend
Who’s poop he thinks smells like a quiche.
A dog lives like a king
While you work
He does his own thing
Basically eating and getting his sleep.
When you get home he thrives
Takes you captive, alive
And if you ignore him
You feel like a More >
I was fast asleep, dreaming about what I would do with all the money I had won on the lottery, when I felt an acute pain in my chest and a wet tongue licking my cheek.
“Darling, am I snoring again?”
The bowing in my left ear quickly made me realize it was Mini, my wonder Pekinese dog.
“Mini, it’s three A.M. There is no way I am taking you out for a walk at this bewitching hour.”
“Maybe he saw an intruder,” offered by better half, “Aren’t that what dogs are supposed to do? Warn us of intruders,”
“Right dear. We are talking More >
It is common knowledge that Valentine’s Day (or St. Valentine’s Day as it used to be known) was first invented by Richard Hallmark in 1876. I am also almost positive that St. Valentine was not the patron saint of mutts. Mini, my Pekinese wonder-dog, thinks otherwise. It so happened that last Tuesday my wife was working late, my son was studying and my younger daughter was at the mall, so I wasn’t in the least surprised when I entered the apartment and found Mini surfing the web again. This time she didn’t even try to hide her escapades, or remove More >
From the Telegraph: Researchers concluded that when it comes to a number of criteria including intelligence, bonding and obedience, dogs narrowly beat their feline adversaries. Out of 11 categories selected by the magazine New Scientist, dogs won six compared with five for cats.
I came home earlier than usual and once again managed to surprise Mini. Usually my white, five year old pekinese pet manages to smell me arriving, but she was so engrossed with what she was reading on the internet that she didn’t notice me come in. I don’t usually allow Mini to use the home computer. For one thing, she More >
It was half past dawn and Mini my Pekinese wonderdog comes running into the bedroom to wake me up with a bark that has been known to resurrect the dead in the local cemetery. He has torn up the morning paper with her adorable teeth, yet again, which wasn’t an incredibly good idea on her part as we had bathed her the nght before and now her white hair had black and grey streaks in it. Gently I removed the newspaper cutting from her mouth but she refused to be subdued until I had actually read it. The Good Food Cookbook More >
I have a dog. The I is meant to be taken in the same way that Queen Victoria said We are not amused. I bought Mini when she was only six weeks old. She was a cute white Pekinese running around with 5 sisters and brothers. No body told me then about Pekinese. No one informed me how stubborn they are or good at having their own way. One thing was sure, she knew who was boss – she was. Now let me explain something about the written agreement between dogs and men. A dog never bites or attacks its owner. Unfortunately, More >
