Canine Cuddles Dogged by grey-sky thinking, Her mood was slowly sinking, But bought a dog Which cleared the fog And now she gets the drinks in.

Wag Now she's drinking her tea, Never thinks about me! Let's have some fun! Wag. Wag. Wag

Pawlitics I have a scruffy mongrel, I got her for the laughs. She looks like our Prime Minister, Without his many gaffes. She's big on social media, We're followed everywhere And all because I bought a dog With Boris Johnson hair.

Scent When the leaves on the trees surrender the breeze in Autumn, our dog comes alive; instinct predestined, he will face to the wind, olfactory-set, overdrive. Be it pungent or musty, pongy or musty; the stronger the odour, the better humming or whiffy, miasmic or niffy, for him, it's a fragrant operetta.

Best Mates The thing about dogs is the love they engender, you get what you see they've no hidden agenda. Unqualified worship, devotion wholesale, soulful brown eyes and a waggy-whip tail. No back-talking nonsense, no falsehoods, no lies, your four-legged pal until one of you dies. One small thing would make this bond even stronger, that's the thing about dogs; I wish they lived longer.

Mud Way up past me clogs, thigh-high in mud, for me and the dogs this weather's no good. It's blowing a shout and freezing too, see we'd not be off out, if they didn't need a wee!

Loss It is unbuttered toast, vegetarian roast, it's chips with no fish, your least favourite dish. Soccer, no goals, golf without holes, waterless swimming, playing, not winning. Life on your own, children, all grown, just family, no friends, nights which don't end. It is walks, full of tears, it's facing your fears, it is knitting with fog, this is losing your dog. Dauphy: Well said, my friend! Hobbo: Thanks, Dauphy.

A canine's view I wish you'd clean up, it's embarrassing. I go for a dump and get harassing looks from the other dog owner's who clean, do not pretend that they have not seen. Okay, I know that it poos, a bit but better than kids put their shoes in it. So, the next time I pause for a crap, pick it please. Be a good chap! Dauphy: This is not about you, Hobbo. Hobb0: I realise that pal. You make a good point though. Dauphy: Thanks. It's embarrassing for the dogs you know! Hobbo; I can see that it would be...

I keep a pet human,
I've had him for a while,
He does his tasks unbidden
And always makes me smile.
I have my mealtimes, regular,
His life's uncomplicated,
We walk, I poo, he cleans,
So, who's domesticated?
