Today is Day 21 of Loveuary and I am going to use the prompt the love of pets.Firstly a poem written about Ruby before she came to live with us. Secondly a haiku about our love for our dog.
Ruby the working girl!
Ruby is a working girl on duty night and day
She works so very hard she rarely has time to play.
We were not busy today, my friend and I,
So we dropped in on her as we were passing by.
Ruby was so pleased to see us she could hardly contain herself
She was dashing here and dashing there and knocking things from off the shelf.
It was lovely to escape the three of us to green fields and the sun
We wondered round and round chatting laughing, just having fun.
Then my foot began to itch so I slipped my shoe off on to the grass green
Unfortunately for me there was dog muck there lucking unseen.
So there we were scrabbling in field.
My foot dirty and smelly well that was not in the deal.
But Ruby she was happy she ran and sniffed and played
This was her only time she not have to behave!!
My shoe and and foot duely wiped we just had to laugh
For Ruby was such a joy to see and went I got home I could have a bath.
So finally we walked Ruby back to work,
She was so happy to greet her mistress we could see Ruby was no shirk.
How she worked and her mistress from all ills.
We laughed about my smelly feet and what we would like to do to those who do not clean up after their dogs We decided that they all should be fed to hungry hogs!!!!
Ruby and her fellow working dogs are silent heroes,
Often not thought of and definitely unsung
But my friend and I think they are the best and Ruby is our favourite one!
RUBY OUR GIRL
