Dog Communication

When we are all busy...
Dad in the kitchen cooking,
Mom at the computer writing,
Big sister on her bed reading,
Little sister on the floor playing,
...something happens.

Our little dog, Smidgey...
our lay about the house dog,
our sleeping on the couch dog,
our curled up like a lump dog,


into Smidgito the Perrito Bandito!

Stealing stuffed animals...
off of shelves,
out of beds,
or out of little girl's arms.

Chewing on...
couch pillows,
the actual couch,
or the occasional wrist.

Then we know it's time for...
a walk,
a trip to the dog park,
or a puppy cuddle.

Who says dogs don't communicate?
