BET YOU CAN’T OWN JUST ONE
Why own a show dog? There’s a danger you know. You can’t own just one, for the craving will grow.
There’s no doubt they’re addictive, wherein lies the danger. While living with lots you’ll grow poorer and stranger.
One dog is no trouble, and two are so funny, the third one is easy, the forth a honey.
The fifth is delightful, the sixth one a breeze. You’ll find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how ‘bout another? Would you really dare? They’re really quite easy, but Oh Lord the hair!
With dogs on the sofa, and dogs in the bed, crates in the kitchen, it’s no bother you said.
They’re really no trouble, their manners are great. What’s one more dog and one more little crate.
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty, the floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care? Who minds a few nose prints and a bit more hair?
So lets keep a puppy, you can always find room, and i little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There’s hardly a limit to the dogs you can add, the thought of a cutback, sure make you feel sad.
Each one is so special, so useful, so funny. The food bill grows larger, you owe the Vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay, except other dog people who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead too, your weekends are busy you’re off with your crew.
There’s dog food and vitamins, training and shots and entries and travel and motels cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap. Then that favourite comes up and climbs in your lap.
Her look says you’re special and you know that you will keep all the critters in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing, and some just to breed, and some just for loving, they all fill a need.
Winter is a hassle, but the dogs love it true, They must have their walks though you’re numb and blue.
Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout at the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.
The dogs and the dog shows, the travel the thrills, the work and the worry, the pleasure, the bills.
The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life. They’re charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won’t be the same, yes those dogs are addictive and so’s the dog game!
