Hello everyone, this is Saturdays poem, as you know i am very grateful to have Polly my Guide Dog, though each day it is often difficult to go anywhere without any attention, which whilst it is lovely, though, sometimes, just sometimes it would be nice to be a little bit annonomous, as was once when i could see and did not need a Guide Dog!
Polly is my fold up Guide Dog!
Polly is my fold up Guide Dog
i take her everywhere with me
she fits in nicely wherever i sit
and doesnt take up much room, not a bit
under the table in a corner small
she is no trouble to me at all!
The other day
we went for a lovely Afternoon tea
My faithful friend
And she doesn’t really drive me round the bend!
As so much love to her people send!
She gets so much attention
As lovely so is she
I just want a cuppa tea!
And not deal with all the fuss that’s abound
She really is such a social hound!
But a sausage she was given
She thought that that was heaven!
As we sipped upon our tea
A lovely scone and jam for me
Cakes iced and sandwiches small
It was the most lovely afternoon of all!
With friends from Chatt Inn
All merry laughing and having fun
At the lovely Attic Cafe
Where beautiful staff
Made us so welcome!
But Guide Dogs are very special you understand
so our life without vision is not so bland
to us blindies they bring much luck
Even though they still roll in muck!
On the grass and sand
licking every sticky hand
And pinching biscuits
When your not looking
And all the crumbs
Whilst you are cooking
And bark at cats
And sniff their way
And really enjoy their doggy day!
The Guide Dog discipline is installed
In them from a puppy small
Which makes them well behaved
And no trouble to us at all!
when she is not being a “real” dog
a well trained Guide, so you are all agog!
but she loves having fun with you and also me!
and is a true treasure you have to agree
Now that it is difficult for me to see far
I wouldn’t be without my little star
She is a super duper Guide Doggy that is it
And no other profession for her would fit!
so three cheers for Polly doodle guide dog girl today!
is what i want you all to say!
