Off to dreamland, puppy,

A favorite of yours.

Whether sprawled out or curled into a doughnut,

Not a single worry,

A sweet expression.

Out of bed, wide awake,

Time to go explore.

Whether filling hearts or curiosity, 

Your ears ready to prick

At the changing winds.

A flicker in the eyes,

Something takes control.

Transform into a seemingly different dog,

Listening not likely;

Next stop is timeout.
