I’ll Be Good!

Won’t you let me come inside?
I swear, there won’t be trouble
Just open up the door for me
Please do it, on the double!

Trixie at window

I promise not to make a mess
I promise I’ll be good!
I just want to be with you
Like any puppy would   💚

Our Puppy: The Fashionista

Our puppy is quite talented
Her skills – they have no end
When it comes to fashion advice
On her, I can depend.
I should take her shopping
She has great “taste” in shoes
She’s fussy about slippers –
Hotel freebies just won’t do.
I was dismayed about my boots
Till I understood the reason
She saved me from a big mistake
Those boots were sooo last season!


Freebies? Not on her watch!


Grabbing socks or stockings
She’ll run off out the door
She wants us to be up-to-date
Buying new ones from the store.
Accessories are her specialty
How she loves hats and sunnies!
But, sometimes the alterations
Really aren’t that funny.
She added a fringe to my cap 😧
Well, I sure let out a yelp
You see, there really are some times
I can do without the help!

Yes, some “advice” has been good
While some has left me vexed
All the while I’m left to ponder
What she’ll turn her eye to next!

Hi there, everyone, what do your pets get up to? Feel free to leave a comment below. Kath 😀

Our Puppy: The Stylist

I look at the trail of destruction
Our little puppy has wrought
And try to think instead
Of all the joy she has brought.
While everything is fair game
To destroy, shred…and chew
I try to see the positive side
And take a different view.
I like to think she’s talented
For art, she has a passion
Just look at this “fringed kennel”
She’s nailed the retro fashion!
Cushions, I piled without a care
Like styling never mattered
But puppy sure took care of that
Now, the look is “scattered”.
Then there was the old couch
A bit dated, in anyone’s book
Puppy soon rose to the task
And gave it a fresh, new look.


You should see her latest piece
It’s by far the best one yet
I call it “Plant Pot – Deconstructed
Just how clever can she get?!
I love all of her “creations”
They’re stunning, to be sure
Although, if I’m to be honest…
I really don’t need any more!

The Write Time

Getting in the “writing zone”
Can sometimes be quite tricky
Social media, texts, emails…
Distractions sure mount quickly!
I must put aside the looming chores
And pretend they don’t exist
Flick over pages on the notepad
To avoid the “To-Do” list…
I need a space that’s perfect
Not too noisy, not too quiet
I need the right amount of light
And some snacks that fit the diet 🍎
Bottomless coffee is a must
(Or wine –  yes, I’ll have some!)
If conditions are just right
Then, maybe, the words will come
But… there’s another distraction
Which stops me writing more
A certain little “helper”
Who’s just too cute to ignore 🐶
