George, our fine and friendly Labrador
whom we so adore,
wagging his big fluffy tail,
he tells us a lovely tale,
smudging the station wagon window,
excited for soon he will the soft earth burrow,
and sticks from the rippled pond fetch,
and afterwards shake and shake and stretch,
and then trajectories calculate,
to catch frisbees, oh so great!
and then to quench the worked thirst,
running back to the car to be first,
and be rubbed and dried by his favourite towel,
and home we all go, and warm dinner gobble,
and snuggle and cuddle in soft blanket,
and fall asleep and dream of catching a rabbit.
