The Love Child

“It” made its way into the life
Of someone who did not suspect
That his forever-prankish wife
Would strive for an all-out effect.

She told me of an odd event:
An increase in the family—
By gosh, by gum! I do declare,
How in tarnation can that be?

Does this not call for two at all?
She told me, with that special glow
Of one who is expecting, “True—
But things do happen, as you know . . . .”

She chuckled, clucked—just like a hen,
Gave full release to bubbling mirth—
And then I heard loud yippy-yap
And saw the scrambling little squirt

That briefly paused to wet the floor—
Yes, Dachshund right down to the nose,
With Min-Pin legs that were too long;
“It” squatted in that telling pose.

This love child of an unlike pair
That coupled without wedding vow,
Inherited one thing both shared:
Their urge to bark and pee and chow.

Hi Ali,
Highly amusing poem. Glad you posted it.
Not sure whether you mean two dachshunds, or two people (hubby/wife, or partners), who adopted one dog. But it doesn't matter. It doesn't change my feelings about this original piece.
Thanks for sharing,

"There is no life higher than the grasstops
Or the hearts of sheep, and the wind
Pours by like destiny, bending
Everything in one direction."

Hello Sylvia,
sorry I left the 'who's who' a bit unclear. Yes, it's hubby, wife, and the latest family member--a min-pin and dachshund mix that we love to pieces. Unrelated to this event, a few days ago a gym friend found a little dog without tags and asked if we have room for him, and I said he should bring him to our house. We all ready have two dogs and two cats but were willing to take him in. As luck would have it, some elderly friends were at our home, and it was love at first sight for them and the dog; they gave the little guy a good home. Pets are wonderful and deserve our love--and a poem. Thank you so much, Syl. charliebrown.gif Ali
