‘Tocks ‘n’ Pads

[Sing to the tune of ‘Cups and Cakes’ by Spinal Tap]

‘Tocks ‘n’ pads, ‘tocks ‘n’ pads
Oh what naps this puppeh’s had!
If you’ve got to honk-shu, a striped carpet will do,
Find a nice bright sunbeam too

‘Tocks ‘n’ pads, ‘tocks ‘n’ pads
Biscuit-shaped toes are really rad
Got no visible tail, cuteness we all hail,
Sending a smooch priority mail

Chow and kibble, leg of lamb
"Yes please, sir" and "Thank you, ma’am"
Shiba cam

‘Tocks ‘n’ pads, ‘tocks ‘n’ pads
Pour some Ranch on your sal-ad
How sad it must "end"
But I’m glad I’d a friend
Sharing ‘tocks and padswith me
And pads with me…

Melina A., hopefully you and your Boston Terrier are singin’ along…

Death by Gossip

"… and Stacie and me were at the mall just now, and we found the cutest little tops, I swear to God you’ll just die when you see them, and she told me that Rhonda told her that she overheard Rachel telling Becky that Rachel’s husband had to sleep on the sofa the entire week because it was her birthday and she was really looking forward to getting the diamond pendant she’d been hinting about all year, but instead he gives her this big ugly upright vacuum cleaner, I swear it looked like something out of Star Wars, and then Becky said that’s nothing, let me tell you about the time Brad bought her the edible underwear for their anniversary, and …"

You know that Sir Pugsalot is the brains of the outfit, he’s all planning to get a ride on Mount Mastiff to the dog cookie jar and the dinner table for dessert snorfing.

But I bet Mount Mastiff calls the major shots, like where the pair is gonna nap for the day, how much effort to exert in general etc.

Kristin D., Ruhmember that time we scaled Mount Mastiff!?

If I close my eyes and cover my nose, there is NO way they can take me to the vet

Because they will
