Without Dogs

PAD Challenge, Prompt #28: write about a "world without ____"

No insulation of the sofa with hair, no
alerting the neighborhood of delivery
trucks, no whining for pieces of bacon-

but no warmhearted friend on stormy
nights, no doorbell for strangers in the
driveway, no cleaning of kitchen floors-

where would we be without dogs?

  1. I can't imagine what we would do without our pets. what a wonderful poem with both sides of that coin.
