Dog Breeder's Husband

pawrul1a.gif (939 bytes)

I'm just a dog breeder's husband
I no longer rule my domain
Even if kindly invited
From opinions I wisely refrain
I'm just a glorified kennel boy
Of minor importance I know
It seems my primary function
Is merely providing the dough
Now dog breeding's not inexpensive
As you all no doubt are aware
But the problem's not so much the money
As the bustle">

Dog Breeder's Husband

I'm just a dog breeder's husband
I no longer rule my domain
Even if kindly invited
From opinions I wisely refrain
I'm just a glorified kennel boy
Of minor importance I know
It seems my primary function
Is merely providing the dough
Now dog breeding's not inexpensive
As you all no doubt are aware
But the problem's not so much the money
As the bustle, the wear, and the tear
Having studied the layback of shoulder
And becoming an expert on feet
I still have not learned to give worm pills
Or how much a puppy should eat
My spouse spends hours grooming
Her Bred By Exhibitor bitch
But when it comes to scratching my back
Her thought is to let the thing itch
Some day I hope that my wife'll
Take me wondering to some foreign vale
Instead of inspecting the stifle
Of some Special stud at Hinsdale
Off in a crowded motel room
After the dog show is o'er
Someone questions the judge's decision
While they reach for another drink more
It appears that his eyesight is failing
His errors in judgement immense
In fact, if I did not know better
You'd doubt if he had any sense
One finds that the amateur's bungling
No match for professional skills
A handler can hide what the owner admits
As he tries hard his conscience to still
The din and utter confusion
Of everyone talking at once
Leaves one weary, hoarse, and irascible
And the next day a bleary eyed dunce
Sometimes late in the evening
I'm asked if I do not agree
That Pottowattamie's Bridget
Is somewhat out at the knee
But before I can answer the question
I find my answer ignored
For some inexplicable reason
My questioner's suddenly bored
I'm only a dog breeder's husband
Not that I mean to complain
But I find certain aspects amazing
When I aspire my role to explain
I know at least where I am going
I'm rapidly going to seed
But I've learned about Winner's Bitches
I married the Best of Breed
