A Dog's Day

It was my grandpa's birthday, and
The cake my grandma made was grand!
Four tiers high and decorated.
Oh, how we anticipated
Sinking fork into each slice.
The thought of it was very nice.
Our being young, cake meant a treat
That we seldom got to eat!
Out to the porch she carried it.
There in such splendor it did sit,
Just waiting for the big surprise,
When brought before my grandpa's eyes.
But there was one thing she forgot.
That her dog, Buster, slept a lot
On the porch, beneath the table.
When she left, then he was able
To eat the cake with great delight!
Of course, he slept outside that night!

Trillium, seems someone had his cake...and ate it, too. Cute poem and memory of Buster.

r v woo:  Buster was a sly, old dog and never missed an opportunity to eat something he wasn't supposed to have! Thanks.

Oh my, dear Betty Lou! What a disappointment for you, but probably Buster dreamed happy dreams that night!

Very nice write!

Love and enjoy your Sunday!

Margherita:

Thanks for your nice comments. Always a pleasure to hear from you. Buster did jnot seem to suffer any ill effects from all the cake he ate!

Dear Betty Lou

I'm laughing as Buster got busted.  He probably didn't care if he slept outside all night because after eating four tiers of cake he most likely couldn't move.  Ha! Ha! Ha!

A delightful poem indeed!

Love Verbena xo

Hahaha! That happened to me once. I took my very first cake that I ever baked out of the oven, put it on the counter to cool and ran to answer the phone. When I came back a couple seconds later I found that my brother's dog had eaten the whole thing! Just a few crumbs left on the floor.

Denise: Thanks for your comments. I had a yellow lab pup once who devoured 3 dozen chocolate  chip cookies at one sitting. He also ate a cube of butter which may have helped him in the long run. I had gone to answer my door and left the cookies cooling on a counter in the kitchen. By the time I got back there it was too late.
