Dog Days

          Dog Days
Dogs see me coming.
They are bored.
Making their day.
They've been anxiously waiting.
Led by the Border Collie.
Chow-Husky mix and a German Shepherd follow.
Race out to the road.
Brush the tires, dashing in front.
Waiting for me to gun the Explorer.
I wait 'til they tire.
Then make my break.
Forlorn they turn back to the house.
Boring dog day resumes.
Wishing for kids to play with.
Or a job to do.
