Professional Qualifications

My professional qualifications
are my paws and yes, my ears
and I've been honing up my skills
for over seven years
My whiskers? Yes, they play a part
as does my curly tail
but when push comes to the shove
my paws and ears regale
For I am dog and this is what
I need to remain regal
and do the job that I'm here for
to care for both my people

Dogsmiling

A Woozle went a-running
in a field in the sun
his ears pointing upright
as he galloped on the run
Thunderpaws by nature
they were thundering today
as he ran around in circles
with a 'hip hip hip hooray'
For this was joy unbridled
unfettered running free
expressed there in his features
with a dog smile full of glee

In the sun II

Wolfgang on the garden bench
panting in the sun
whilst I sit down relaxing
now my working week is done
The warmth today is growing
so whilst I am sitting here
he's given his permission
for me to have a nice cold beer

Camber Sands

For a birthday treat our children
took us to Camber Sands
a weekend at Badger Cottage
neath the sand dunes tall and grand
They'd all kept it a secret
but it's known and open now
as the six of us are here
with our dog cos he's allowed

May the fourth be with you II

Seven years of Star Wars days
we've had this little chap
the dog of many, many names
so let's give him a clap
Obi Wan Kinobi is 
his proper name of course
hence 'May the fourth be with you'
as he is strong with 'the force'
But he has many others
to numerous to repeat
as he is a very special friend
who makes our lives complete

Circles and drifting

A fine dapper gentleman regal and proud
posed for a picture and stared
Ears at the ready, heightened sense alert
whiskers quivered as his nostrils flared
For this was his field, his fiefdom, his rule
for circles and drifting and more
with his humans in tow he embodied the joy
for the running which all dogs adore

Dogeaster Egghunt

In our garden every year
for as long as I recall
we've had a hunt at Easter
when children have a ball
eggs hidden in strange places
whoops and shouts of joy
all these years in passing
from three girls and a boy
But this year for a difference
I included dog treats too
as they are part of family
so it seemed the thing to do
Yes the children are all grown now
but tradition will not die
so we will just continue
as the years they pass us by

A saving grace

In seven tree field it was squelchy and wet
but we didn't mind and we didn't fret
for in spite of the rain that fell from the sky
we had a great time as Obi ran by
He got very muddy and was browner still
but it all washed away with a hosing and swill
and after a towelling he was warm and dry
as we drove back home under dull leaden sky
Seven tree field, many words have been written
but no apologies here as both of us smitten
for it really is quite a magnificent place
which for each of us three is a real saving grace

Abundance II

Something different every time
in this familiar place
visited most weekends
as it's our saving grace
Obi gets his running time
as we follow, slower gait
and every time throughout the year
new pleasures there await
Something different every time
some small, some larger still
await us when we visit
our abundance to refill

Field of fun

I'm back here in my favourite field
drifting circles in the wind
my little ears all streamlined
as my jowls assume a grin
for this is my enjoyment
my happy time and more
running free for ages
cool earth beneath my paws
My humans shiver in the chill
but I just run and run
as I'm here in my element
in this my field of fun
