As our family begins to wake, we get up and do our biggest shake
That’s when we cannot sleep much more
Since hearing footsteps cross the floor.
We’re on our toes from day to night, no matter who is here
For this family that we protect, we need to be quite near.
Once we know all well is present, we’re let out in the yard
To do our daily rituals, like barking which isn’t hard.
We’re lounging in the grass so green, this we tell you so
This is what we dogs do best, we though that you should know.
The family does come out and sit, when it’s not quite hot
But here we relax up on their chair, even if they are not.
We usually bark at things we see, or even at things we hear
Why are they always yelling to “HUSH!” To us, it’s not quite clear.
This is a life any dog would know, it’s the best of lifes’ there are
Since lounging and being spoiled, it’s the best “Dogs Life” by far.
We are the families greatest guard, and this is what you’ve read
If anyone wants to cross the line, then heck “We’re playing dead.”
As the time begins to fade, and darkness starts to set
We’ll get up just this time, so we can climb in bed.
