It's the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop!


A guinea pig's view of life...

I am NOT coming out! Dog's may be MAN'S best friend, but we guinea pigs could be Dog's Next Treat if we aren't careful. YOU can read on, but I'm staying right here!


A poem dedicated to man's best friend. For all the laughter, loyalty, and love you give us...we thank you for making our lives a little sweeter.

I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be.

Today I sniffed
Many dog butts — I celebrate
By kissing your face.

I sound the alarm!
Paperboy — come to kill us all —
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I sound the alarm!
Garbage man — come to kill us all —
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot —
Sniff this and weep.

I Hate my choke chain —
Look, world, they strangle me! Ack
Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack!

Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot — no greater bliss — well,
Maybe catching cats.

Look in my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do.


Show some love to these fantastic dog artists! Visit their shops, leave a comment, purchase their items. But most importantly...give your dog a big hug and kiss today for making Earth a better place to live!
