Even service dogs.
So there's a new generation-in-training, with the older ones showing the pups the ropes.
He’s a little bit incontinent,
and she gets lost in the backyard,
but when the puppies get impertinent,
they slap them back, quite hard.
They’ve earned idiosyncratic rights,
and places on the couch.
They’ve stood by through my hard nights
and none of them’s a slouch.
They’re passing on the caring torch
for their person, now so ill.
But you won’t find them on the porch;
they’re still working, with a will.
They train the young’uns for their duty,
and in their age, they shine in beauty.
Music from the Little River Band, with Reminiscing.
