Some days a Happy pup wakes up overflowing with zippy bounce.
Their face full of smiles they rush about
ready to tackle any and every task the day presents.
Loaded with life,
spilling over with enthusiasm,
life seems all sun and roses.
But into every Happy pup’s life must come,
those hazy lazy days,
where energy and enthusiasm are nothing more than a distant memory.
Tired and worn,
with dropping eyes and leaden head,
sleep’s blanket clings,
wrapping itself with inviting warmth around the shoulders
its sings a lullaby
until in victory you lay down your head.
