The Garbage Man is coming! The Garbage Man is coming!
Must get outside to greet,
Stumbling over his back feet
running to the door…Bark Bark Bark!
More like Huff Huff Huff as he shows his age,
beautiful golden fur shedding in his wake.
I just vacuumed for goodness sake!
Each day we fret as his voice pales,
His back leg fails,
and he sleeps so deeply I check his breathing.
So yes, 8am might be too early for barking
and now the neighbours dog is starting!
But how much time is left for earthly fun?
Go on pup, get out there,
bark and huff and run
and tell the Garbage Man,
He will be 14 next month and he loves garbage day, recycle day…every day.
