I'm ba-a-a-ack!

My vacation is over,
I'm a tired & tan girl,
But couldn't resist this ad,
The "poem" made me hurl.

If your Lab isn't black,
Please: stay mellow,
It comes in a version
Where the Lab is yellow.

I have a sad weakness for sentimental dog poems. But that one is a bit glurgy even for me.

Oh, but, galumpka, that's exactly how my Ivy (yellow lab) felt about me, the goober.

She was a slave to love.

Oh, groan! I'm glad to hear you're back and well, even if you did have to sic this poem on me far too early on a Saturday morning :0)

Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I think the look in the dog's eyes says "Chill the f--k out, you sentimental freak."

Nah, the look just says, "I'm hungry; where's the food?" Trust me on this one; I've seen it before.

Maybe the look says, "Hey asshole, send the $29.99 to the SPCA instead of buying this useless plate."

Yuck. I call it the Rainbow Bridge syndrome. I hate sappy sentimental crap like this, probably because it's an occupational hazard to be exposed to so much of it.

That said, my favorite pet quote is from George Eliot: "Animals are such agreeable friends; they ask no questions, they pass no judgments."

Succinct, gets the point across, and isn't dripping in saccharine sentiment like a verbal version of a Mary Engelbreit print.

When my cat died a month ago, I threatened grevious bodily harm to anyone who sent me that stupid-ass Rainbow Bridge poem.

Fortunately, none of my friends needed to be told. :)
