National Pet Month

According to the website http://www.nationalpetmonth.org.uk/ , April 7th to May 7th is National Pet Month.  So in honor of all the pets I’ve had and all the hard-working pets out there – and with tongue firmly in cheek – I’ve composed a little ditty called Life is Hard, But Life is Hardest When You’re a Pet.

It should be sung to the tune of the Austin Lounge Lizards’ Life is Hard, But Life is Hardest When You’re Dumb:

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re a pet,
Just one fight and then you’re off to see the vet.
  To get food you must play dumb,
  Because you have no opposable thumb,
Oh life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re a pet.

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re a pet,
You’ve never found a stupid pet trick that you like yet.
  When told rollover or play dead,
  You’d just like to cuff them upside the head,
Oh life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re a pet.

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re a pet,
Chained all day, caged at night that’s all you get.
  When you see the kids they’ve made,
  You wonder just who should get neutered and spayed,
Oh life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re a pet.

Give your pet an extra hug this month.

Unless you have a pet wolverine or porcupine.  Then, just wave.

  1. I guess that is why they say, “It’s a dogs life.”

  2. I couldn’t have said it better. Well, I could have. But not funnier! Have a day of all joy in the garden with the pet of your choice! HF

  5. I shall sing this to my dog — if for no other reason than to get that funny little side head tilt pose I like so much 🙂

  6. CAL,
    I’ll lick one of my Dendrobates this month. How’s that?
