It’s Dr Seuss Day 2023 today and I’m sharing my Seuss-isms with you. My sisters said the new pup always does this post their first year, so here I am. Last year I was with my birth family and only six weeks old. This year I get the special job!
The original book Is a guide to life for those just starting out…and those already on their way. I’m kind of just starting out. My first year I dabbled in starting out, but now that I am one, all the restrictions are lifted. Are you ready?
Nelson’s Seuss-isms – by Nelson
Be True To Yourself
You have brains in your head
you have paws on the ground.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own and you know what you know.
YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go!
Bark the truth
Stop barking at such outlandish things.
Stop barking at things that are not there.
Bark loudly when you feel
it’s something that is a big deal.
Nose Work Focus
This is not a time for play,
this is where work becomes fun.
Don’t clown around,
there is sniffing work to be done.
If you never try,
you will never know,
is your limit the sky,
or how far can you go?
Try New Things
Getting out of your comfy shell
will serve you well.
Put one paw
in front of the other
and soon you’ll be doing more
of things you never thought of before.
When you are done,
you’ll find you had a lot of fun.
If you are feeling bad
don’t start to get mad.
Your life isn’t yucky
you are actually quite lucky!
Many dogs don’t have half the life
Get out there, embrace the world, see new places, smell new smells, try new things, be nice to others! You will find out what a wonderful life you have and don’t forget to take your mom along on the journey! Happy Dr Seuss Day 2023. I hope you enjoyed my small version of Seuss-isms. Nelson
