Dog Self Control

Doggy
stifles her bark,
swallows her yip,
keeps her yapping
under control
when IT walks by.

Tail high,
whiskers twitching
the neighbor's cat 
saunters and struts
in front of our window
- in front of doggy -
full of 
CAT-titude!

Doggy tries 
to hold it in.

Tries to look
the other way.

But she can't.

She unleashes a 
cacophony of
yips,
yaps,
barks,
growls -
showing HER attitude
toward cats.
