A walk with Gyp and Tiggy on their leads
Is always an adventure for their noses,
The landscape like a news report each reads:
Reports of poops and pees more than of roses,
But best of all is sniffing out a bone
Chucked from the window of a worker’s truck
Snatched on the sly and savored as her own—
A putrid, gross, delicious slimy snack.
Good luck on wresting such great treats away
From the clenched jaws of either of these girls
Growling protectively if you should try:
You’d think these bones were precious gems and pearls.
One way is to negotiate a trade,
So bring a treat: that’s how a deal is made.
