To dog

What hobbies do you have? People usually say? Do you ice skate? Or fish? Or stand on your head? No, I reply absentmindedly. I normally dog instead. At this point I have to explain, Because most people aren’t use, To dog on the brain. Do you train them? Or run them? Or take them to war? Oh no, I reply, I just pet dog on the floor. Or maybe the bed. Sometimes the sofa. If he’s good I will treat, As long as he doesn’t chew on my loafers. And when he’s all curled up As tight as a Frisbee We toss him around the back yard, with the kids see? This is where I get strange looks, And we politely part ways, To dog is not for everyone, And everyone are not for dog ways.
