An Old Dog Is The Best Dog

An old dog is the best dog,
A dog with rheumy eyes;
An old dog is the best dog
A dog grown sad and wise,
      Not one who snaps at bubbles,
            Nor one who barks at nowt,
                  A dog who knows your troubles,
                        A dog to see you out.

An old bitch is the best bitch,
Not pups to fetch your sticks;
An old bitch is the best bitch,
Not one to teach new tricks,
      Not one who’s up and leaping,
            But one whose coat is grey,
                  Leg’s twitching while she’s sleeping
                        In dreams of yesterday.
