Please don’t tell me off


How was I to know?

It was just sitting there
in front of my nose.
all ready for my jaws
to wrap themselves around.

It wasn’t just the sound
that the machine makes,
nor your attention that it takes
away from me.

It was more
that I was bored.

I know it was new,
but what else could I do?

You say it cost a packet
and you would deduct
the cost from
what you spend
on my treats,
but it was there,
making a racket,
annoying me with its
whirr, whirr, whirr.

Knob gone from my dryer rendering it totally unusable and it’s only a few weeks old!

If we had a cat
I could blame it on her.

How could I imagine
that the knob would come off
and render your drying machine
totally useless?

I want your forgiveness.
I’m contrite.
I know it wasn’t right.
Please don’t frown.
I’m lying with my head held down
trying to look as small as I can. 😦

Another Doggy Ditty using my theme “Only Human” which I hope to be able to use throughout this April PAD.
