Why own a Llewellin? There’s a danger you know, You can’t own just one, for the craving will grow. There’s no doubt they’re addictive, wherein lies the danger. While living with lots, you’ll grow poorer and stranger.
One Llew is no trouble, and two are so funny. The third one is easy, the fourth one’s a honey. The fifth one delightful, the sixth one’s a breeze, You find you can live with a houseful with ease.
So how ’bout another? Would you really dare? They’re actually quite easy and you could use a spare! With one on the sofa and two on the bed, and crates in the kitchen, it’s no bother you’ve said. They’re really no trouble, their manners are great. What’s one more bird dog and just one more crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty, The floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty. The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care? Who minds the chew marks on the dining room chair?
So let’s get a puppy, we can always find room, And a little more time for yard-training in June. We’ll build one more kennel in the corner out back, and put off till next year fixing up this old shack.
Each one is so special, so useful, so funny. The vet and the food bill grows larger, and you have less money. Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay, just other dog folks, who all live the same way.
Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too, But your weekends are busy, you’re off with your crew. There’s dog food and hunt trips, training and shots. Licenses, collars, and trailers that cost lots. Is it worth it, you wonder? Are you caught in a trap? Then, that cute bird dog climbs up in your lap. His look says you’re special and you know that you will, keep all of the dogs, in spite of the bill.
The dogs and the hunting, the travel, the thrills, The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills. The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life. They’re charming and funny and offset the strife. Your life-style has changed. Things won’t be the same. Yes, Llews are addictive and so is the game!!
