A Dog's Day
6 September, 2001
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


The family dogs now lay at my feet
They are resting from a long busy day
They barked at the doors, some cars, and a leaf
And chased the cats that teased from across the street

With the kids they rough housed
Waited for the mailman's sound
Played catch and keep away
And were told to stay off the couch

They greeted the neighbors that came by to sit
Walked the paremeter keeping it safe
Sniffed the dog next doors behind
Barked for no reason till I threw a fit

It was a dogs day, a day now complete
As the ones they love settle down and rest
They say their goodnights with the wag of their tails
Circling once then twice, they lay down to sleep
