Doggy Love


MP17

I’ve nothing against cats personally,
they’re just not my cup of tea, that’s all,
but dogs, dogs are a different kettle of fish.
I like dogs.

I like the way they look up at you
and look up to you.
I like their big trusting eyes.

I like a dog that races up to me
when I shout
Here!
wagging its tail
and I like a dog that immediately sits
when I shout
Sit!
and retrieves anything I throw away
when I shout
Fetch!
and waits for me patiently
(if a little anxiously)
when I tether him outside Marks & Spencers
and tell him
Wait!

and I like a dog that frightens people
and stops them from attacking me
and growls
when someone comes to the door.

Above all, I like a dog that cringes
and blinks
whenever I raise a hand.

Yes, I like dogs.
