You can't teach a dog to chew with his mouth closed

Chapter OneWhen 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!
