LITTLE SOPHIE

LITTLE SOPHIE

IMG_3181 

You know nothing

of ego,

and you rule your dog-world

with untainted distinction.

 

You know nothing

about bowing to

anything or anybody,

and you rule your domain

without question.

 

Obedience

was never your

calling nor fate;

yours is one of

absolute surety.

 

You defy

us humans

who operate on

compliance, ought’s, should’s,

rewards and punishments.

 

Your sharp strident bark

speaks louder

than mere words.

After all,

everyone already

knows that you

want what you want….

now.

 

Cute prissy paws,

little white ball of cotton

with big piercing eyes,

tail like a flag,

nearly fifteen

and bouncy as

a two-year old,

hold fast

to your eminence,

remain the queen

of dog-dom.
