Almost Human


2014-08-25 15.00.43 2ALMOST HUMAN

I am almost human
so I well understand
exactly what you want
when you ask
if I’d like a “treat”
or if I want a “walk”
or to go to the “park”
or “go fetch” a “stick”
and “give to Mum”
or have a “tickle-tum”
and I’ll “shake a paw”.
I know what’s in store
with “breakfast” or “dinner”
and “time” for my “supper”
or even “go do a pee”.
Those words all mean
something to me.

But I am not human,
so I don’t understand
exactly what you mean
when you shout
“no!” “off!” “out!”
“stand!” “down!” “sit!”
“leave!” “stay!”  “wait!”
“go down!” or “be quiet!”
“over!” “heel!” or “come!”
or worse, “in your room!”
Those words are not
in my vocabulary.

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