The name’s Ruffles,
That’s me with a few of me mates.
There’s Barney, Lockjaw, Rover, River and Tide
To name but a few.
Tide’s such a character, more often out than in.
I’m the loveliest of dogs,
Excellent manners, loyal and forever happy
But I’m also the ugliest dog alive.
It’s why I’m here
I get taken in, fed well,
Behave perfectly, but owners don’t like the comments
They say it’s embarrassing to hear people refer to me
In the most derogatory of ways.
So end up back in the pound
At least I have mates here
Though they come and go
It’s the fate of so many.
There’s nothing so welcoming as the sniff of your butt
By all those around you
That feeling of acceptance,
You just can’t replace.
I’m lucky I guess
There’s food on my plate
And companionship all round.
We are all the same in here
We think we should be attracted to some
But we can’t figure out why.
