Bouncing

Wolfgang was bouncing
and after his ball
We caught him on camera
which was a good call
Sometimes he caught it
sometimes he missed
But we always praised him
and gave him a kiss
Cos doggos need praising
and knowing you’re happy
Quite easy to do with
so bouncy a chappie

A day with Wolfgang

Spent a day with Wolfgang
mostly sleeping in the sun
He is a very special chap
agreed by everyone

He’s happy being with us
Grandparents as a test
which we are pretty good at
‘Cos like him we are the best

Wolfgang the little Patterdale
Paws and long legs too
So pleased you’ve joined the Croucher clan
as we’re all fond of you

Wolfgang

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
has come to join our clan
Living with my daughter Gracie
and her partner Lee, the man

A Patterdale Terrier by breed
His black fur tinged with brown
He’s absolutely gorgeous
and we’re so pleased that he’s around

Basil

Sir Basil Fawlty lived a life
as full as life can be
For almost eighteen years
he was within our family

A little border terrier cross
he was peace personified
Hardly ever growling
until the day he died

And ‘tho we all will miss him
we know he’s in a better place
Romping round in heaven
with that smile upon his face

Last day of the hols

And here I have just one more day
to spend and use in my own way
I’ll lie in for a little then
write some words with my new pen
over coffee with some toast
and Marmite maybe (make the most)

Our new Alexa, music plays
on this the last of holidays
A playlist of my favourite songs
to which I’ll dance and sing along
Then maybe I will play a game
Red Dead Redemption 2, the same

And if the sun decides to stay
I’ll go for a walk around midday
I’ll read a little, have some tea
and spend some time with only me
I’ll do the things that bring a smile
if only for a little while

And then this evening I will rest
Knowing that I’ve made the best
of this, the last day that I had
with all the things that make me glad
As holidays are meant, you see
to be the best that they can be

Favourite things

The beach at any time of year
The sea, my friend, to bring me cheer

Lavender in purple fields
Walking in the Sussex Weald

Music as my food for life
My lovely children and my wife

My dogs, the young one and the old
who understand me, so I’m told

Treasures all with songs to sing
These are all my favourite thing

Fortunate Fellow

There’s a little dog barking
just in the sea
the gentle waves lapping
as he runs around free
People are paddling
and all having fun
Enjoying the warmth
of the full evening sun

The breeze is quite gentle
blowing in from the East
and all I can see
is a visual feast
I love being here
as it makes me feel mellow
and it’s not lost on me
I’m a fortunate fellow
