Don't Stop Believing...

SUMMARY: ...Dogs can make a mess of things...

For some inexplicable reason known only to strange quarks, Human Mom has of late been immersing herself in Journey's Don't Stop Believin' ** over and over. At least a couple of times a day. Have rediscovered it after all these years. Man, Steve Perry has a Voice!  Listen to it again; wow! (Plus what lovely music.)

Plus: Vacuuming every. Single. Day.  Sometimes twice!  Jeez!  Add them together--

Just a small town dog
Diggin' up a funky log
He took that thing inside to chew anywhere

Just a Zorro boy
He can't find a normal toy
He took that thing inside to chew anywhere

A dead plant from a plastic pot
Such a lovely thing they've got
Dig it up and spread the soil
It goes on and on, and on, and on

Strange dog chew toys
Up and down the living room
Their remnants lying everywhere

Vacuum, pointless
Next it's plum stains on the carpet
Makin' me tear out my hair

Working hard to clean the shower
None-the-less within the hour
The dog is walkin' through the door

Dusty feet and moistened floor
Adding up to one big chore
Oh, the footprints never end
They go on and on, and on, and on

Strange dog chew toys
Bringing clods of dirt inside
Their teeth leave long lines in the clay

Paper on the ground
Envelopes are often found
It's some new chew toy every day

Don't stop believin'
Dogs can make a mess of things
Dog toy stuffing...

Don't stop believin'!

  1. Oh my!!!! That's amazing! (Song and photos both) I'm sort of glad Katie doesn't destuff anything. Or dig in pots. Or climb in the shower. I guess she wouldn't make good song material at all!

    1. I'll bet Katie could make plenty of songs on other topics! She has many adventures.
