Chapter One

When it comes to learning tricks, dogs are second to none

that is to say, with the exception of one!

You can coach a dog to look left then right when crossing the street

but also to say "how do you do?" to whomever he greets.

Being that he loves you, he'll snuggle close while you nap

And at supper you may politely place a napkin on his lap

Then you can teach your dog to mind his P's & his Q's and you can tell him to ask, after sneezing, to be excused

All dogs are born eager to run, snoop and snore

but around people, a dog really should offer to open the door!

"Manners are easy so long as he follows the rules!" or so they say as he chomps treats away at his doggy school

Some days you may find he might drool, burp and bark

However, he's a dog and he can't help those parts!

And when it finally comes to dinnertime

you can beg, plead and whine

or line up his toys in nice orderly rows

even dance nimbly around on the very tips of your toes

but nothing at all, not even a kiss on his nose

can teach that rude dog to chew with his furry mouth closed!
