In our dogs years
time can pass on by quickly.
I bet they don’t hold grudges,
they can’t, especially the way
they wag their tales
each time they see us.
I’d swear they understand our language
certain parts of it anyway.
Unless of course, they’re lying to us.
Just think if they had long-term memory
imagine opening the door
they turn and have no reaction,
taking no notice that you’re home.
When you make those baby voices
they roll their eyes and look the other way
like you’re crazy.
What would happen if they stopped,
trying to show how much they loved us.
They see something out a dark window
and ignore it.
They stop following you around the house
they just stay put to do their own thing.
No longer have a favorite toy
or place to go lay down.
Our dogs have full time jobs
they come home and are all tired
can’t be bothered with us
they’re stressed because
the roles have switched.
Our full-time job was them
no longer a bigger picture
and depending on the kind or breed
you may have a temperamental
truly dangerous situation
you’ll need to be careful around.
It’s all just crazy
thinking in this way
because truly, our dogs
wouldn’t want to switch places.
They’re perfectly content
being part of a family
giving unconditional love
(Give your pet a hug)😘
