Weekend Dogs

Weekend dogs are different dogs,
As the bacon odds are high.
Man's feet are slippered, soft, and still,
With their little people nigh.

Weekend dogs are wriggly dogs,
A cadence to their bark.
Suspension of the dreary week,
They bound, joyful, round the park.

Weekend dogs are helpful dogs,
Always keen to lend a paw.
They schloop the windows, sniff the drains,
Lick cold gravy off the floor.

Weekend dogs are snoozy dogs,
Heads resting 'neath the chair.
A Sunday feast, full belly growls,
And gas abroad the air!
