Dad's Birthday

My muzzer's in the doghouse
She'll be there for a while
She missed my Daddy's birthday
In her own usual style

She says that she was thinking
Tomorrow was the day
October 23rd was due
This week, and not today

She didn't see her error
Until she got to work
When she looked at the calendar
She said "I am a jerk"

And so she got a cupcake
With lots of sprinkles on
And put it with the cards and stuff
We'd hidden from anon

I hope my Daddy likes it
And says she can come out
I'd hate to have her missing me
She would, without a doubt

'Cause I'll sleep with my Daddy
Inside our cozy house
And hope that muzzer does not see
A cat, or rat or mouse!

happy birthday Dad!

We hope your Muzzer's not in too much trouble, Gussie. Can you teach her to do puppy dog eyes?

Oh, even I don't stay in a dog house. I hope your Muzzer gets out soon. Perhaps you can dig her and escape tunnel?

Oh! Well, I know your muzzer means well! And I would certainly be appeased by a cupcake! Happy burpday to your pops! I can't imagine a better gift than a pome from Gus.


ps. Your Ode to a Gall Bladder made me giggle. Move over Donald Hall, there's a new poet laureate in town!

OOOPSIE...with such a great poem, he has no choice!! Go to Stan's blog and read the awful limerick he wrote for Stan's new sissy, Stella. It's atrocious...I'm working on mine...pen one for her, Gus!!

Our Mom's birthday is coming up. She explicitly gave Dogdad the entire responsibility for the day -- so we are hoping there will be no doghouse involved!!!

Our respective crates are kind of small for his 6-foot frame, although we'd be willing to share.
