Not a Bad Dog

A one-line poem response to today’s fun prompt.

Your presence doesn’t bore me

In fact, it makes me glad

And when you leave I promise

I’ll try not to be bad.

My own dogs watch from our bedroom window for our eventual return. I just loved this picture because it reminds me of our sweet little Shorkies 😊 (Even though this is obviously not one) he is still waiting patiently for his master.

As always, thanks to the tireless efforts of Kathy, Harper, and the whole Chalkboard team!
