twa dugs (another rabbie tribute!) by 

a tale o twa dugs frae rabbie burns
is yin o ma favorite verse
a tale o twa dugs yin rich yin poor
whos lives are quite reverse

the rich yin canny understan
why the poor yin wis sae glad
he had nae collar made o brass
an his life seemed unco hard

but luath he had somethin
the rich dug couldny match
a lovin family roond aboot
an a fire below the thatch

so whaurs this goin i here ye say
oor joaks goin awfy saft
but heres the point -av got twa dugs
that think am bloody daft

in burns wee poem the dugs are owned
by twa men frae differant class
in joaks wee poem its him thats owned
by deerhounds bold as brass

they hud for tea the other nicht
a sirloin red an lean
but whit did joak huv for his tea
a plate o toast an beans

i get up at 6 tae tak them roond the park
its really such a sham
cos aw they really want tae dae
is get back for eggs an ham

an late at night the fires oan
abodys nice an glowin
i try tae tak them for a pee
but ootside it is chuckin doon an they just arny goin

av never hud such lovin dugs
an there really awfy bright
cos thery ken how tae take the pish
oot a dad thats saft as shite

i promise thats ma last wee rabbie tribute!
an this is jamie an millie when they could fit in this wee seat millie still tries but keeps fallin oot
