a hairy tune

white whisker,

white whisker,

why are you here?

sitting on the face

of a puppy i hold most dear?

.

white whisker,

white whisker,

why are you here?

can’t you see this is my girl

not

a long,

hairy,

gray

beard?

.

white whisker,

white whisker,

why are you here?

because you have never stopped by before

in all her earlier years?

.

white whisker,

white whisker,

i will say you can stay –

Syd does not seem to mind

if you hang out another day!

.

white

only one white whisker has sprouted…

.

ps:  The above was written to the tune “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.  I contemplated singing it, but, well, I do not wish to be responsible for crashing WordPress!

    It’s always surprising when our dogs get some white whiskers from showing their age. Dancer doesn’t have any yet and it’s surprising because he’s old enough to have some, I think it’s due to not having him neutered. Or it could be genetics, he comes from a very healthy lineage.

    Funny!
    I can’t sing either and if I tried I would crash wordpress too!

    Awh this is beautiful! My Angel is a black dog and her muzzle is white. I keep saying she is only 5 but she is really 8! OH no! She’s my best friend! I think of that a lot who will walk with me a night? Dumb thought, but now we meander when we walk and look for rabbits! 😀
