you cannot stop a dog from being

a dog

once he is outside and on his own he

will bark

forgetting with great enthusiasm

all the habits of the house

 

and also the scratch on his nose

that cat gave him last time

 

may as well appreciate that wagging tails

and forgetful minds are part of the package

and love him for what God made him

 


 

Written after Duffy went outside to bark.

Wonderful little doggy mind,

always forgetting, always loving.
