Thor

Of course, all dogs need discipline and some sort of order, but it is difficult to have the courage to scold a dog that just so happens to be flying above my head with purple fluttering wings in which he sprouted overnight!

Shock!

Our English

Bulldog, Thor,

sprouted

feathered wings

last Friday

night;


Quite fantastical

and surprising,

were they;

though startled,

was I,

with shocking

fright!


Bulldog in bed


Watching me,

from above,

purple wings

whimsically

fluttered

in the air,


While drool

dripped down

onto my face,

but to scold him,

I would not

so boldly

dare!


Thor


Flying proudly

right past me,

and perching

himself

upon

his dog food

bag,


He suddenly

looked

unbearably

happy,

(Although,

he had no tail

in which to wag)!


English Bulldog Thor


Performing

familiar

pre-meal tricks,

such as

rolling over

(though,

in outer-space),


Overwhelmed me

in such great

shock,

that I tripped

over my own

two feet,

and fell

onto my face!

Swimming English Bulldog


Jumping up

to feed

this dog,

which

once again,

hovered above

my head,


He suddenly

flew

right past me,

again,

and began

gobbling down

my last loaf

of bread!

English Bulldog Thor


Choosing not

to scold him,

and

thinking about,

instead,

making him

a deal,


I offered

to brush

his pretty

purple wings,

If only

my food

he would

never, again,

steal!



Bulldog


Swooping

down,

beneath

me,

away he flew,

as I held on

tightly,

(so as

not to die);


At that precise

moment,

I decided,

that

any food

Thor

ever wanted,

would be his,

as higher

and higher

we continued to fly.

      Oh, nine cats!! I have two cats, and one of them definitely has an attitude pretty much 90% of the time...LOL. I am so glad you like Thor! He is doing exceptionally well flying people around with Uber. Thor really appreciates lots and LOTS of attention. Ha Ha... thank you for coming by!

      Warm Hugs,

      Tamara

      Too darn cute! I love both your whimsical poem and that knockout lovely dog. If I had a dog, I'd love to have a (rescue) bull dog. (I have 9 cats, 5 of whom are indoor.)

      Exploring, I do admit to Thor being spoiled...haha. Of course, he thinks differently! Instead of 3 meals per day, he wants 6 meals! Lol.

      Big hugs,

      Thor is as much a darling as he is a little brat...lol. He always keeps me laughing :-) It's difficult to be too serious around him...He is a ham. Lol.

      Big Hugs,

      Awe, thank you so much, Jodah! I am so happy you came by for a visit. Perhaps one of these days you might like to take a ride on our Flying Bulldog. I might sign him up for Uber.

      Hugs,

      Tamara

      I would venture to say that Thor is living like a God ( Thor ) and I bet he lives the life of a king..Cute pictures an verse....
